He is a historian and a writer he said
It is Draconian act and the Delhi police are out of hands, Magistrate is not giving bail it is completely crazy, What depth has Indian society sunk to when a young girl standing for farmers and environment arrested, Sedition Charges are worse than the colonial regime, In this regime, Gandhi would have been in jail, A young girl can not express her views, This government is Paranoid, fearful, Vindictive government
