“You have every right to protest. But you cannot shout me down”
It was unprecedented protests that Kerala Governor Arif Mohammed Khan faced on Saturday from some delegates during his speech at the Indian History Congress Kerala’s Kannur.
The incident occurred at the Kannur university where the Governor was inaugurating the 80th session of the History congress.
Some delegates protested after the governor spoke about the anti-CAA agitations in various parts of the country.
“You have every right to protest. But you cannot shout me down”, Khan said repeatedly as some of the delegates, sitting in front, protested inside the auditorium.
He also said, “when you shut the door for debate and discussion, you are promoting violence.” Holding placards, some students from universities outside the state were seen raising slogans and were removed by police.
