Suppression of freedom of speech, expression in India continues unabated

New Delhi, August 23 (KMS): Stifling of basic rights of the freedom of speech and expression has become a perpetual bane in the RSS dominated Indian society.

In yet another act of suppression of the basic rights of the freedom of speech and expression, a court in Kerala on Tuesday directed the police to register a case against Communist Party of India-Marxist (CPI-M) backed legislator and former minister, KT Jaleel, on his “Azad Kashmir” and “India occupied Kashmir” remarks.

Indian media reported that a petition was moved by the RSS leader Arun Mohan before the Thiruvalla judicial first class magistrate court in the Indian state of Kerala after the former MLA eulogized ‘Azad Kashmir’ in a Facebook post.

The Thavanur MLA had recently visited Indian illegally occupied Jammu Kashmir (IIOJK) and shared images and detailed accounts of his travels.

Jaleel mentioned “India-occupied Jammu and Kashmir” which comprised Jammu, Kashmir valley and Ladakh and also criticized the Indian government’s decision to revoke IIOJK’s special status.

The comments had sparked protest in Kerala with the BJP demanding that a sedition case be registered against Jaleel, who had served as the higher education minister in the previous CPI-M government led by Pinarayi Vijayan.

Indian media reports said, earlier, a complaint was filed at the Kirvaipur Police station which was declined.

With these measures, the Indian government perpetually resorted to falsehood to promote its anti-Pakistan narrative.

In his posts, the MLA said the government of Pakistan had extended all rights to the people in AJK who had been enjoying equal opportunities and basic facilities.
