Lakshadweep Police on Thursday enlisted an instance of a Sedition case against Filmmaker Aisha Sultana. The case is for after her comment on Lakshadweep’s Covid cases, that “bio-weapon” being utilized by the Center on the island’s people.
Sedition– It implies that language or conduct that is proposed to convince others to go against their Government.
She added “Lakshadweep had 0 cases of Covid-19. Now, it is reporting a daily spike of 100 cases. What the Centre has deployed is a bio-weapon. I can say this clearly that the central government has deployed bio-weapon,”
In her favor few people are saying, it is just a criticism & part of democratic rights. She didn’t mean to persuade Lakshadweep people.
Presently, discussing Bioweapon as of now, there are countless things going on. Examinations are going on in China if the virus is Wuhan lab-made. Also, aside from that India is a part of the Global signatory treaty, where it’s unmistakably referenced that India can never make & use Bioweapons.
So obviously in the event that one uses the word ‘Bioweapon’ can make enormous difficulty. In any case, as per few specialists peoples who are supporting Aisha believes that Lakshadweep’s people or Aisha is not only unhappy or angry due to Covid cases rise, The new laws introduced by the administrator isn’t helping them. People in Lakshadweep are not ready to accept those laws.
Before discussing the laws you need to understand the basics-
Lakshadweep is a union territory of India. It is a total of 36 islands in the Arabian sea. In that 36 Island on & average people stays in 10 islands. Lakshadweep signifies “one lakh islands” in Malayalam, the official as well as the widely the spoken native language in the territory.
The total population of Lakshadweep is around 64,429 as per the data of 2011. In that 96.58% population believes in Islam religion. 2.77% & 0.49% population believes in Hinduism & Christianity respectively.
For a long time, Lakshadweep didn’t see many Covid cases. Suddenly the cases have outbreaks, few people from Lakshadweep think that the administrator Praful Patel is liable for it.
A 14-day quarantine period, seven days of which were to be spent in Kochi, was believed & accepted to be vital to Lakshadweep’s success. However, a change or adjustment in SOP, that waived the quarantine period and now only requires travelers to show a negative RT-PCR test, has seen cases in the island territory swell remarkably, with some noting that the positivity rate could now be beyond 60%.
Apart from that recently Govt. has presented new draft laws.
Whether it is Lakshadweep Development Authority Regulation 2021 (LDAR) which, observers note, grants the administrator sweeping powers relating to land appropriation. Or Prevention of Anti-Social Activities Regulation (PASA), the Animal Preservation Regulation, and the Panchayat Regulation.
Under the ACT of PASA, a person can be detained without any public disclosure for a period of up to one year if the administrator or the authority thinks the person is hurting or trying to damage or damaging public order.
The PASA, be that as it may, isn’t special to Lakshadweep. A few states, including Kerala, Karnataka, Tamil Nadu, and Uttar Pradesh have similar guidelines.
Under the Animal Preservation Regulation Act, altogether it will ban the slaughter of cows, calves, bulls & bullocks. Technically it’s a ban on beef. We already discussed that 96.58% population of Lakshadweep believes in Islam religion. Beef can be a cuisine. Apart from that Lakshadweep is having a large industry of beef export-import.
As per the Panchayat Regulation act, if a candidate has more than two children cannot be a member of a Gram Panchayat.
Although these draft laws still didn’t pass. The home service needs to clear the guidelines, then, at that point, these will be taken up by the Union cabinet headed by Shri Narendra Modi. After the approval from the cabinet, laws will be shipped off to the President for his consent. When the official consent comes, at that time the guidelines will be informed.
