Strange behaviour of democracySince the abrogation of article 370 and 35A, we witness some strange things going on. Arrests being made of the top former ministers without any formal order. Just forces armour is stationed on the main gate not allowing anyone to come out.
In a brazen attempt to show people of the country that the former CM and current MP from Kashmir Dr Farooq Obdullah was not arrested on 5 August 2019 when an article 370 was abrogated, the response to a question about this former CM was startling by the top minister that Farooq Abdullah must be enjoying in Mugal Gardens but when Supreme court intervened, Govt accepted to have slapped him with PSA.
Now the same thing is happening with Former CM PDP's Mebooba Mufti, while trying to come out for election campaign a few days back, forces on the main gate didn't allow her to move out who were unable to produce legal documents for her house detention when she asked. Illegal detentions must stop.
It's is not for the first time but happening frequently with these people. Such an approach is not good for democracy and it may have bad effects on democratic setup. Today it is these former CM's tomorrow it may be those who are enjoying power right now.
