Former Indian Administrative Service (IAS) officer Kannan Gopinathan on Tuesday rejected the centre's claim that the ongoing clampdown on Kashmir is meant to prevent deaths due to violent reprisals, saying that life holds no meaning to a human being without the right to liberty. "Life and liberty go together, and that's the beauty of a constitutional democracy. If they say that they will put you in jail to save your life, would that be acceptable to you? You can argue something like that for a certain period, yes, but this has been going on for three weeks now," he told NDTV in an exclusive interview.
