On The Newshour Debate with Navika Kumar tonight, The Supreme Court directed immediate release of journalist Prashant Kanojia on bail. He was held for posting a controversial tweet on Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath on social media. Kanojia was arrested for allegedly defaming state Chief Minister on social media. Apex Court said Liberty is Fundamental. Putting all political leaders on notice, Supreme Court added, India is not a police state. While allowing the probe on defamation to continue, the court asked why Prashant Kanojia was arrested when he did not commit murder?
We ask – Why didn’t UP CM intervene before the Supreme Court verdict? Will UP CM Yogi Adityanath suspend his cops? Can UP CM Yogi Adityanath distance himself from arbitrary arrests? Can your liberty guaranteed by the Indian constitution be curtailed? Shouldn’t cases be filed against overzealous policemen? Is free speech now hostage to whims of intolerant netas? Are political leaders scuttling freedom of speech? Watch to know!
