@TimesNow⁩ This would make even the most raw cub reporters scratch their heads: how does any of this constitute an “inside scoop”?!

- freedom of speech includes seeking a global audience
- merely engaging with people of dubious credentials is not an offence
- not even an iota of evidence brought to my notice connecting the perpetrators of violence on 26/01 with accused or PJF.

- citizens are conscience keepers of government in any democratic nation
- they cannot simply be put behind bars for disagreeing with state policy
- offence of sedition cannot be invoked to minister to the wounded vanity of governments

- creation of whatsapp group or being an editor of an innocuous toolkit is not an offence.
- nothing on record to suggest #DishaRavi subscribed to secessionist idea
- the resistance to bail plea is ornamental in nature
-any call for violence is conspicuously ABSENT in the toolkit

#DishaRavi Powerful, sane order by Delhi court. National media parroting police handouts without applying any journalistic mind should truly hang their heads. Every day the bar sinks lower. Some highlights ⁦@BJP4India⁩ must internalise: 1/n

There's a #FarmersProtest happening in Germany.

But the German Govt didn’t block their path with barbed wires, dig highways or label them Anti-National. And neither did the Govt declare it an ‘internal matter’ where others can’t comment. I guess that’s how democracies work.
