The brouhaha over azadi

By Vijaya Pushkarna

Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath said if "pro-azadi slogans are raised in the state in the name of protests then it will come in the category of sedition and stringent action will be taken by the government".

The worst time to find one's tongue is when one has lost one's head.

That would be true of  leaders commenting on the protests over the Citizenship (Amendment)Act 2019, without , hearing the women and students as well as their slogans.

At a recent rally in the national capital, there were slogans of "azadi".  

Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Home Minister Amit Shah displayed wisdom as they did not say the sloganeers would be hauled up for sedition as they were "hatching a  conspiracy against India".

Senior ministers and the ruling party would do well to listen to the "azadi" slogans one heard as participants in a protest marched from Mandi House to Jantar Mantar. Those who missed it, take a look at the video clip on top.
