Alt News co-founder Mohammed Zubair

The Delhi Police informed the Delhi High Court on Thursday that no criminality was found against Alt News co-founder Mohammed Zubair in connection to his 2020 tweet.

Advocate Nandita Rao, appearing for Delhi Police, told single-judge Justice Anup Jairam Bhambhani that Zubair has also not been named in the chargesheet filed in respect of the FIR in question.

Taking note of the arguments, Justice Bhambhani directed the Delhi Police to record the chargesheet so the court could move forward with Zubair’s petition to have the charges against him dismissed.

Justice Bhambhani urged Additional Solicitor General (ASG) KM Nataraj (representing the National Commission for the Protection of Child Rights) to seek guidance on the matter. She also ordered the police to send Zubair a copy of the charge sheet. The court has now listed the matter to be heard on March 2.

A case was registered against Zubair after he replied to a Twitter user named Jagdish Singh who used abusive words in one of his tweets. Zubair retweeted Singh’s display photo, which featured his granddaughter but with her face blurred. He wrote, Hello Jagdish Singh. Does your cute granddaughter know about your part-time job of abusing people on social media? I suggest you to change your profile pic, he said.

However, a month later, two First Information Reports (FIRs) were filed against him in Delhi and Raipur under the Protection of Children from Sexual Offenses Act (POCSO Act) for allegedly threatening and torturing a minor girl on Twitter.

In May 2022, the Delhi Police submitted an affidavit before the High Court claiming that the tweet did not constitute a crime.

Former Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister Kamal Nath on Friday ended the speculations of his switching allegiance to BJP as he called Rahul Gandhi “our leader” and urged Congress workers to join the Bharat Jodo Nyay Yatra in the State.

Taking to X, Nath said that the Congress workers were excited to welcome the Gandhi-led Bharat Jodo Nyay Yatra. He said our leader Rahul Gandhi has taken to the streets across the country and announced a decisive fight against injustice, oppression and exploitation.

He also urged the people of Madhya Pradesh and the State Congress workers to become the strength and courage of Gandhi by joining the Bharat Jodo Nyay Yatra in large numbers. He insisted on togetherness, which will bring this great campaign against injustice to an end.

Earlier, Nath increased more suspense to the rumours as he neither denied nor accepted what has been the hot rumour doing the buzz in the capital.

Speaking to reporters, Nath asked the media to lower their excitement over speculation of him and his son Nakul Kamal Nath joining the BJP and said he is not denying it and will inform them of the news if there is something in the coming days.

Also, he and his son Nakul Kamal Nath arrived in Delhi today reportedly to meet the top leaders of the BJP. However, Congress rejected the rumours of him joining the BJP and recalled what former PM Indira Gandhi said about Nath.

Earlier in Jharkhand, Gandhi said Congress stands for Jal, Jungle, and Jamin of the tribal people, for education and employment of youths. He said economic imbalance, demonetization, GST and unemployment have ruined the future of the youths in the country.  On the way to Bokaro, he interacted with coal miners and their children at Godhar Kali Basti in Dhanbad district. 

On January 14, Congress kicked off the Bharat Jodo Nyaya Yatra from Manipur’s Thoubal. The yatra aims to cover over 6,700 kilometres over 67 days, going through 110 districts.

Kashmiri activist and journalist Yana Mir, addressing a Sankalp Divas event in the British Parliament building, said she is not Malala Yusufzai who will run away and seek refuge in the UK. Asserting that, Mir said she is safe and free in her homeland, Kashmir, which is part of India.

The video of her speech has been shared widely on the internet, in which, she strongly denounced the propaganda mechanism by Pakistan to dent India’s image on the international stage and objected to Malala for defaming her country and homeland by calling it oppressed.

Mir was addressing the Sankalp Divas event hosted by the Jammu and Kashmir Study Centre UK (JKSC) in the British Parliament building. She has been associated with the Jammu and Kashmir Youth Society too.

Addressing the event, she further objected to all such toolkit members on social media and foreign media who never cared to visit Indian Kashmir, instead, they fabricated stories of oppression from their country.  

Mir urged everyone to stop polarising Indians on grounds of religion, Indians won’t allow you to break up us, adding that, Mir said our perpetrators living in the UK in Pakistan will stop maligning my country.

During the event, Mir also received the Diversity Ambassador Award for championing diversity in the J&K region.

The event was attended by over 100 attendees, the gathering included UK Parliament members, community leaders, and representatives from various organisations and prominent members of the diaspora.

The event reaffirmed India’s stance on the region’s integral part of India. It highlighted the need to reclaim areas like Mirpur-Muzaffarabad and Gilgit and Baltistan, which fell victim to Pakistani aggression.

The program was organised to provide a comprehensive overview of the socio-cultural and political landscape of the region. The event emphasised the diverse nature of Jammu and Kashmir, highlighting its multicultural, multireligious, and multilingual characteristics.

The words of the Kashmiri activist deeply resonated with the attendees, displaying her unwavering commitment to her country and her people. Mir’s stance against terrorism and propaganda serves as a reminder of the resilience and unity of the Indian nation.
