BJP comes out Kerala Minister for supporting Ayesha Sulthana in fighting sedition case

The BJP in Kerala on Monday slammed against state Education Minister V Sivankutty for promising support to filmmaker Ayesha Sulthana, against whom the Lakshadweep police had recently slapped sedition charges over her alleged comment against the spread of Covid- 19 in the archipelago.

Senior BJP leader and former Mizoram Governor, Kummanam Rajasekharan termed the minister's act as "highly condemnable" and "unconstitutional". Senior CPI(M) leader and education-labour minister Sivankutty last week had called Sulthana over phone to express his solidarity with her in her fight against alleged dictatorial and fascist policies of the Lakshadweep administrator.In a statement issued later, the minister had said Sulthana was not alone in her fight and the entire democratic community of the country was with her.

Meanwhile, criticising the Lakshadweep police for slapping sedition charge against the woman filmmaker, state Assembly Speaker M B Rajesh has said the apex court had already ruled that only acts that cause public violence or disorder fall within the ambit of 124-A.
