Malappuram sedition case

Two students from Malappuram district in Kerala were arrested on sedition charges for allegedly sticking posters on the Kashmir issue inside their college campus. The students have been booked under section 124(A) or sedition.

The arrested students, Rinshad Reera and Faris (20), belong to the B Com department of the Government College Malappuram. Both of them are part of the Radical Students Forum (RSF). The two were arrested following a complaint by the principal of the college, KS Maya.

One poster they placed read “Protest against the attacks on Kashmiri students by Sangh Parivar workers”.

Cases against 7 students from the college have been registered so far. Out of this, two have been arrested. Both the arrested were produced before the district magistrate.

    What is the diffrence between the BJP and the CPM? As far as Kashmir problem and other nationality issues in India there is not an iota of difference. In fact both want to be more ‘patriotic’ than the other. There is our Vijay Prasad of the CPM ( who once manipulated Noam Comsky and Tariq Ali into sigining a statmenet criticising those who supported the people’s struggle in Nandigram and Singur during the most infamous Buddhadev Battacharya’s reign) who waxes eloquent about the liberation of Palestine and the resistance of the Venezuela to US Imperialism. Will he endorse the arrest of the students who spoke for not only Kashmir but also for Palestine? And does the CPM has any moral right to speak against the colonial laws such as 124 (A) when they are invoked in states other than Kerala?
