Two days before the Prime Minister's announcement imposing the sudden nationwide Covid-19 lockdown in March 2020, Bilal Chero* stepped out of prison for the first time in eleven years. He had been arrested in 2009 on what is commonly called in Jharkhand as 'Maobadi charges'.
Before his arrest he was just another villager subsisting by farming on his patch of land in a forested region in West Singhbhum, an area where the "party waale" [CPI (Maoist)] would come and go. "They were armed. If we didn't give them food and water, they'd kill us, you know?"
Suddenly he was informed that there was a "Naxali" case against him, and he was arrested on 22 charges including the #UAPA and Section 17 of the Criminal Law Amendment Act (association w a banned party). Meanwhile his wife & brother were killed in a security sweep of the region.

Highlights from Adv. Tanveer Ahmed Mir's rebuttal before a Delhi Court in a Delhi Riots case against sedition accused Sharjeel Imam:

#Sedition #UAPA #SharjeelImam Image
Mir: A man graduating from IIT Bombay, has a good corporate package, leaves that and decides to pursue modern history, but I'm not going to say he lost his head - it's his decision as to how he wants to pursue intellectual brilliance and justify his existence in the world.
Mir says one needs to apply the Kedarnath judgment's interpretation of the sedition provision of IPC because not doing so would imply we are carrying forward a British legacy - they didn't want Indians to rise.
