Congress MP Shashi Tharoor appealed to Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Monday, declaring himself "deeply disturbed" by the FIR against the 49 authors of an open letter to the PM in July. Mr Tharoor urged the Prime Minister to "affirm the constitutional principle of Article 19" and guarantee freedom of speech and expression. In a two-page letter, he also reminded PM Modi of a speech before the US Congress in 2016, in which the Prime Minister called the Constitution a "holy book" and said "... freedom of faith, speech... and equality of all citizens, regardless of background, are enshrined as fundamental rights".
