Farooq Abdullah's Detention: Muzzling Dissent Or National Interest?
PUBLISHED ON: September 16, 2019 | Duration: 28 min, 57 sec
Lok Sabha MP and National Conference leader Farooq Abdullah is slapped with the Public Security Act - a law that allows the state to detain a person without trial for upto two years without a trial. Dr Abdullah has been detained for three months at the moment. Is 83-year-old Dr Abdullah, a man with multiple health issues really a threat? Does he need to be slapped with the same Act that is used against separatists and stone-throwers?
