Muzzling simple voices of dissentA horrible incident has been reported from Tuticorin. A research scholar, who is studying in Canada, was going home by a flight to Tuticorin. He is said to have said something about the ruling party at the centre.
The State Chief of the ruling party at the Centre, would have nothing of it. She registered a police complaint. The research scholar was arrested. Fortunately, the court negated the particular section under which the young lady was booked and allowed her to go on bail.
Video clippings showed a very aggressive State Chief. Forget politics. The small incident is just a voice of dissent. Should such small voices of dissent be muzzled the way it has been attempted? Would not human rights be suppressed if such small voices of dissent are not allowed?
