The arrest of 21 yr previous Disha Ravi is an unprecedented assault on Democracy. Supporting our farmers isn’t against the law.

DishaRavi’s arrest is the newest escalation in India’s crackdown on free expression and political dissent because it seeks to stifle the farmers’ mass protests, says the Every day Telegraph, UK. Doesn’t GoI care in regards to the harm it’s doing to its personal world picture?
Meena Harris, US lawyer
Indian officers have arrested one other younger feminine activist, 21 yo (year-old) Disha Ravi, as a result of she posted a social media toolkit on tips on how to help the farmers’ protest. Learn this thread in regards to the sequence of occasions and ask why activists are being focused and silenced by the federal government.
Standing unconditionally in solidarity and help with Disha Ravi. I am so sorry this occurred to you, sister. We’re all with you. Keep robust. This injustice too shall cross. #shameondelhipolice
Jairam Ramesh, Congress
Utterly atrocious! That is unwarranted harassment and intimidation. I specific my full solidarity with Disha Ravi.
Anand Sharma, Congress
The arrest of local weather activist Disha Ravi is most unlucky and surprising. Custodial interrogation of a younger lady with none legal antecedents can’t be justified. Police ought to recognise her proper to liberty and courts should respect the Supreme Courtroom Judgement which says bail is the rule and Jail an exception.
Amit Malviya, nationwide in-charge of BJP’s IT division
The Left has been utilizing younger impressionable minds as cannon fodder for his or her deranged politics for a very long time. From JNU to Jamia, AMU to Nadwa and now Disha Ravi, are all a part of their sinister plot…Sadly, they’re deserted quickly after they’ve served their objective!
PC Mohan, BJP
Burhan Wani was a 21-year-old. Ajmal Kasab was a 21-year-old. Age is only a quantity! Nobody is above the regulation. Legislation will take its personal course. A Crime is against the law is against the law is against the law. #DishaRavi
Claudia Webbe MP, member of parliament for Leicester East, UK
Disha Ravi is 21 years. A local weather activist from India she campaigns for clear air, clear water and a habitable planet. She is now going through state-sanctioned violence for peacefully supporting farmers. Silence isn’t an possibility we should all condemn this act of suppression. #FarmersProtest
“I do condemn the arrest of Disha Ravi, a 21-year-old Indian woman, a local weather activist, who stood with the protesting Indian farmers and voiced her opinion for his or her wants and calls for. How can we name ourselves, the biggest democracy… if arrests happen on a woman, who has her opinion? Residents of our nation is not going to be gagged. Daughter to stay silent? Daughter to say nothing?
