Children proud that Siddique Kappan is their father, says Kappan's wife after his release

Siddique Kappan, a journalist from Kerala, said – he struggled – minutes after leaving jail on Thursday in front of media teams, a small crowd of onlookers, and his wife and teenage son who had been waiting patiently for more than two years since he was arrested while travelling to Hathras.

Both the relief and the sorrow were clearly visible on their faces. In October 2020, Kappan and three other people were detained as they travelled to the Uttar Pradesh town where a Dalit woman allegedly died from rape. They were charged with attempting to incite violence in response to the woman from Hathras’s passing.

Kappan told PTI that he would be Delhi as his stay there must last for atl least six weeks.

He laughed when asked how life had been in prison and replied that he struggled more. His mother passed away during his two-and-a-half years in prison.

Kadijah was his mother’s name. She misses seeing Kappan return home, said Raihana, the wife of Kappan.

The Supremen Court granted Kappan bail and his innocence was established. A period of two-and-a-half years was not brief, said Raihana while talking to PTI. She also said that the family underwent through a great deal of misery but she was glad as justice was finally done, even if delayed.

I reiterate that Kappan is a media person, Raihana emphasised.

The couple has three children- Muzammil (19), Zidhan (14) and Mehnaz (9).

Our children were waiting him home. Their joy was snatched away. Can they ever forget their father? They are pleased to acknowledge the journalist Siddique Kappan as their father. Their oldest, son, Muzammil, who was also waiting outside with his mother, reaffirmed that his father was a journalist.

He asked that what has caused his father’s excruciating pain for the past 2.5 years? He also said that they were currently anticipating his release and were overjoyed. He appreciated those who were waiting for Kappan’s release with them.

According to Kappan’s attorney Mohamed Dhanish KS, the journalist had been detained in the district jails of Mathura and Lucknow but had been released twice, once when he contracted Covid and was admitted to AIIMS, Delhi, and again to visit his ailing mother.

Police prosecuted Kappan under the Unlawful Activities (Prevention) Act and various sections of the Indian Penal Code on the basis of allegations that he had ties to the now-banned Popular Front of India (PFI).

The Supreme Court granted him bail in connection with the case in September of last year. After Kappan was released from an Uttar Pradesh prison, a bench under the leadership of the then-chief justice Uday Umesh Lalit ordered him to stay in Delhi for six weeks.

He remained prisoned, though, as a result of a money laundering case brought by the Enforcement Directorate.

And people should be sure that their money is saved.” Earlier, the proceedings of both the Parliament were disrupted due to the uproar by the opposition parties on this subject.

Congress General Secretary Jairam Ramesh tweeted, “Both Houses of Parliament adjourned till 2 pm today as the government responds to the joint opposition’s demand to probe investments made under duress by LIC, SBI and other public institutions.” He claimed that the savings of crores of Indians are at risk today due to the fall in the value of such investments.
