Mohammed Zubair

Mohammed Zubair, the co-founder of fact-checking website Alt News was arrested by Delhi Police on Monday evening on the grounds of allegedly hurting religious sentiments through one of his old tweets. The tweet was shared in 2018. As the news of his arrest was out, several people started showing support for him and many political leaders also criticised the actions of the Central government led by BJP.

BJP was condemned for the arrest of Mohammed Zubair because the Delhi Police reports to the Ministry of Home Affairs.

The political leaders who criticised the BJP-led government for the arrest of Mohammed Zubair are Congress leader Rahul Gandhi, TMC MP Mahua Moitra, and Congress youth leader Srinivas BV, among others.

Trinamool MP Mahua Moitra called out Delhi Police for this arrest and said that they are bending over backwards to please sahibs and thumb their nose at the law.

She further said that Zubair was arrested on the trumped-up case without notice while assisting in the case where High Court gave him protection. Moitra concluded by saying that Ms Fringe Sharma enjoys a life of protection at taxpayer expense for exact same offences.

Congress leader Rahul Gandhi also condemned the act and said that every person exposing BJP’s hate, bigotry and lies is a threat to them. Arresting one voice of truth will only give rise to a thousand more. He concluded by saying that truth always triumphs over tyranny.

The youth Congress President, Srinivas BV said that busting fake news, propaganda of Godi Media, and exposing the hate speech of BJP is the reason he’s being arrested?

He further said that Nupur Sharma remains untouched while Zubair gets arrested for calling out the wrongdoings. We strongly condemn this act.

Kerala MLA MK Muneer said that he strongly condemns the arrest of journalist and Alt News co-founder Mohammed Zubair by Delhi Police. This is shameful and unacceptable.

He then said that what an irony that the person who made hate speech is roaming free while the journalist who uncovered it is detained.

Delhi Police said that Zubair was originally being questioned in an older case but was arrested in the new case after having sufficient evidence on record. He is still being questioned and police will present him before a magistrate tomorrow to seek further custody, it is learnt.

Kerala court

Kerala’s Kozhikode Session Court has issued a controversial statement in a sexual harassment case of activist Civic Chandran. The court said that section 354 A of the Indian Panel Code could not be invoked when a woman was wearing a sexually provocative dress.

The court observed that the images submitted by the accused would demonstrate that the complainant herself exposed outfits which had some sexually suggestive ones, and in this case, section 354 A (sexual harassment) will not prima facie stand against the accused.

Judge S Krishnakumar said that there was no adequate proof that the woman’s honour and dignity had been damaged in order to file a complaint.

He said that even if there was physical contact, it is inconceivable to think that a 74-year-old man with physical limitations could forcibly put the de facto complainant in his lap.

The incident happened in February 2020 at Nandi Beach near Koyilani where the accused allegedly grabbed the complainant’s hands, pressed her breast and urged her to sit on his lap.

Reports said that the decision was taken after a high-level meeting over the accommodation of Rohingya refugees that came from Myanmar.

According to reports the chief secretary of Delhi chaired the meeting and was attended by senior officials of Delhi government, Delhi Police and Ministry of Home Affairs.

A senior official said that the refugees will now be shifted to New Delhi Municipal Council (NDMC) flats in Bakkarwala village of Outer Delhi.

He said that there was a total of 250 flats belonging to the EWS category where all 1,100 Rohingyas, currently residing in the Madanpur Khadar camp, will be accommodated.

Earlier, the BJP and the RSS have been opposing the asylum of Muslim Rohingyas in the country. They argued that it will create security problems in the country.

Senior RSS leader Indresh Kumar said that Rohingyas were not inhabitants of India. They belong to Bangladesh, so how can they be allowed to stay in India? Moreover, they have been involved in terrorist activities here.

He urged Islamic nations to provide shelter to Rohingya refugees in their countries.

BJP spokesperson G V L Narsimha Rao also raised concern and said the Centre was meeting all humanitarian obligations, but it could not turn a blind eye to the fact that a large number of illegal immigrants residing here were posing a challenge to the security of the country.

However, Union Home Ministry has clarified that Rohingya illegal foreigners will continue at the present location.
