In a scathing attack on the Pinarayi Vijayan-led Kerala government, Justice Kemal Pasha today said that the arrest of PC George was unfair and granting him bail raised the prestige of the judiciary.
He criticised the current politics of imprisoning those who oppose them in cases of harassment and making the police slaves and making them unable to work with dignity. The process of democracy is no longer here. He pointed out that criticism is the greatest right of a citizen.
There is no right to criticize or protest in Kerala. Water collected from drains is being used on the protestors. The government believes that if a case of abuse is charged against a person, he will never come to mainstream politics. This is the way, the Pinarayi government is suppressing people in the state, he added.
