Human rights group Amnesty India has called on the government to released fact-checker Mohammed Zubair “immediately and unconditionally”. It demanded withdrawal of “all politically motivated” charges against him.
In a tweet, Amnesty flayed his arrested. “Mohammed Zubair’s continuing detention is an alarming reminder that you are not allowed to speak the truth in India. Debunking fake news is not a crime,” the group said.

Zubair is being targeted by the police in Delhi and Uttar Pradesh. He was first arrested in connection with a tweet he has posted in 2018. Several other cases were lodged against him later.
Reacting to the witch-hunt against him, Supreme Court judge Justice Chandrachud said, “the problem is the vicious cycle. He gets interim bail in one case but gets arrested for some other case.” During a hearing in his case on Monday, the top court directed the Uttar Pradesh Police not to take any action in five FIRs against him till the next hearing on Wednesday.
HE HAS BEEN RELEASED
If I am not mistaken
Yes, as usual. Judiciary behaved well and have also acquitted the terrorist Owaisi, AIMIM-a sister concern of PFI.
