I spent half the weekend ranting about that case to friends. Basically it was "A man is in jail for weeks for a joke he neither told nor was intending to tell and has been denied bail repeatedly by the judge, just because of his name. Kafka couldn't dream this up." On loop.
With an "of course, no one should be arrested for jokes but we crossed that line in India years ago."
The world call now stop citing Minority Report as the reference for arresting people for crimes before they happen. #MunawarFaruqui case is even more dystopian. He is ostensibly under arrest because the local police think he might tell "insulting" jokes and threaten public order

A tweet thread.
It is a strange phenomenon. Not the way in which the judicial and criminal investigation processes have been subverted in India to arrest and oppress victims and punish civil rights campaigners. That is a travesty of justice and a denial of civil rights, alright
It is the brazenness with which such gross acts of egregious violation of constitutional principles and protections of civil liberties are carried out. It is the utter lack of regard for the niceties of due process. It is the widespread support for it among ordinary people.
So the mockery of justice of the #BhimaKoregaon activists's trial and incarceration, the arrest and false charges against #UmarKhalid and the many others falsely accused in the #DelhiRiots police investigation are not only tolerated but actually supported by many in #India

#UmarKhalid being arrested under the UAPA is the latest sign that the Delhi Police is blatantly taking sides when it comes to investigating February's Delhi riots.

2/ Former JNU student Umar Khalid was arrested by the Delhi Police late last night for his alleged role in the North-East Delhi riots that happened in the aftermath of anti-CAA protests in February.

He has being called one of the major conspirators involved in the violence.
3/ During a peaceful protest, Khalid had said that he and his followers would not respond to hate with hate, going as far to say “ If they fire bullets, then we will hold the Constitution.”

He has been charged with a law used to detain terrorists.

1: The arrest of ex-Jawaharlal Nehru University (JNU) leader, Umar Khalid by the Delhi police is another example of the crackdown on peaceful anti-CAA protests held by the students in Delhi. #UmarKhalid has been arrested under the repressive UAPA.

2: The Delhi police is accusing Umar Khalid as being one of the main conspirators of the riots. Amnesty India had earlier in an investigative briefing pointed out on how the police have taken no action against political leaders who made hate speeches in the buildup to the riots.
3: Many students who took part in the peaceful anti-CAA protests are either being arrested and jailed by the Delhi police under draconian anti-terror laws or subjected to intense intimidation and harassment as they are called in for interrogation during the COVID-19 pandemic

The arrest of Jihadi element,
#UmarKhalid in connection with his role in orchestrating the anti Hindu Delhi Riots of 2020 , highlights how a deep rooted conspiracy was hatched to tarnish the image of India at the global level.
From Umar Khalid to Tahir Hussain of AAP, everyone planned to burn Delhi into ashes!

Appreciation to Delhi Police & Home Ministry for being proactive in exposing the brains behind this conspiracy & bringing them to justice one by one despite extreme pressure these people have tried to put on the cops through their connections with the so-called
AntiHindu parties
