A young woman who raised ‘Pakistan Zindabad’ slogans at a rally in Bengaluru against the Citizenship Amendment Act in the presence of AIMIM chief Asaduddin Owaisi has been charged with sedition, with a judicial magistrate denying her bail. She has been sent to judicial custody for 14 days.
The woman, identified as Amulya, asked people to shout with her “Pakistan Zindabad” after the organisers of the event under the banner of “Save Constitution” invited her to address the gathering soon after Owaisi came on the stage
Soon Owaisi rushed to snatch the mic from her hands and was joined by others who tried to remove her from the state. But the woman was adamant and raised the slogan again repeatedly.
Later, the police stepped in and removed her from the dais. Owaisi then addressed the gathering, saying he did not agree with the woman.
