Leader of the Congress in Lok Sabha Adhir Ranjan Chowdhury on Tuesday wrote to Prime Minister Narendra Modi, looking for the discharge of medical practitioner Kafeel Khan, booked beneath the National Security Act (NSA) for alleged hate speech. Chowdhury contended that “grievous injustice” was being meted out to the Uttar Pradesh physician. Khan is in detention for allegedly making an inflammatory speech on the Aligarh Muslim University campus through the anti-Citizenship Amendment Act protests.
With only a day to go for the groundbreaking ceremony of the Ram temple in Ayodhya, Uttar Pradesh, Chowdhury, in his letter to the PM, mentioned, “Ramraj (Lord Ram’s rule) is antithetical to injustice, discrimination and retribution.”
“I, on behalf of my party, vehemently opposed the legislation (CAA) inside the Parliament and outside. However, no NSA was invoked against me or the millions of other protesters across the country.
“I’m fairly bewildered as to why a younger medical practitioner has been implicated even though freedom of expression has been engraved within the hallowed Constitution of India,” Chowdhury wrote in the letter. The senior Congress leader urged Modi to secure justice for Khan, who had been in jail since January.
“Even worldwide boards such because the United Nation shave been persuading you for the discharge of Kafeel Khan. Sir, I firmly imagine that ‘Ramraj’ is solely antithetical to injustice, discrimination and retribution,” the Lok Sabha MP from Berhampore said. Khan was arrested at Mumbai airport on January 29 in connection with a case registered at Aligarh’s Civil Lines police station under section 153-A of the Indian Penal Code.
The section relates to enmity promotion between groupsover religion and other differences. On February 10, Khan was granted bail by the Allahabad High Court but not immediately released by Mathura Jail authorities. His family then moved the court in Aligarh,claiming contempt of the HC order.
The courtroom issued a recent launch order on February 13.But earlier than it could possibly be executed, the authorities invoked the National Security Act towards him. The paediatrician had earlier confronted arrest following the deaths of over 60 kids in per week at a authorities hospital in UP’s Gorakhpur in 2017.
About two years later, a state authorities probe cleared Khan of all main costs.
