If Farooq Abdullah has committed sedition as per the BJP – RSS, then all minorities, schedule castes and Adivasis or Tribal’s have committed the same offence. –Simranjit Singh Mānn

Comments by Simranjit Singh Mann: Shiromani Akali Dal (Amritsar) states that as is evident no good news is coming from Jammu and Kashmir. Its status as a state of the Union was done away with by the current BJP – RSS extremist Hindu Union Government of Premier Nerandra Modi. it has now been converted into an Union Territory ruled directly by that Union Government in Delhi. This came about on 5th August, 2019, when article 370 and 35 A which gave this minority Muslim state a semblance of autonomy were abrogated.
Political prisoners are currently in jail. The barbaric law AFSPA(Armed Forces Special Powers Act) operates whereby the security forces can kill, murder, kidnap, abduct, maim, molest and rape, keep in illegal custody or create disappearances of any person with impunity.
Mr. Farooq Abdullah is so hurt with all this happening, there being no elected Assembly, his political equals still in jail since August 2019, black laws that he has been compelled to state that with the help of China he and his fellow comrades will bring back the earlier special status given to Jammu and Kashmir.
The extremist Hindu radical party BJP – RSS’s spokesperson has reacted savagely stating that Mr. Abdullah has committed sedition. The criminal act of sedition attracts death penalty or imprisonment for life. We think all minorities, schedule castes and Adiasis or Tribal’s are at the end of their tether and would prefer to be charged with sedition. The great thinker Henry Devid Thoreau states that – “Under a government which imprisons any unjustly, the true place for a just man is also prison”.
We all think that living like cowards in a country where its Government has subjected the executive, legislature, judiciary and press to its authoritarian will, it is better to agree with Henry Devid Thoreau and be in prison.
Facta non Verba.
