A day after the arrest of Disha Ravi, and non-bailable warrants issued in opposition to Nikita Jacob and Shantanu over ‘toolkit’ matter, Congress chief Rahul Gandhi on Monday attacked the federal government and mentioned India will not be “silenced”. Rahul Gandhi quoted a Hindi couplet in his tweet and mentioned: “India will not be silenced”.
Congress chief Shashi Tharoor on Sunday too had reacted sharply to the arrest of Disha Ravi, the 21-year-old activist from Bengaluru, for her alleged involvement in sharing the ‘toolkit’ associated to the farmers’ protests.
Disha Ravi is among the founders of the ‘Friday for Future’ marketing campaign and allegedly edited the ‘toolkit’ and forwarded it on social media. She was picked up from her home in Soladevanahalli space of Bengaluru on Saturday.
The Delhi Police had registered an FIR on February four on fees of sedition, felony conspiracy, and selling hatred amongst teams beneath Sections 124-A, 120-A, and 153-A of the Indian Penal Code in opposition to the “creators” of the ‘toolkit’, which was later shared by international local weather activist Greta Thunberg.
The police have described Disha Ravi as a key conspirator within the doc’s formulation and dissemination and mentioned that she had began a WhatsApp group and collaborated to draft the doc.
