Politicians, actors, influencers across the globe condemn arrest of activist Disha Ravi

Politicians, actors and influencers across the globe have condemned the arrest of a 21-year-old climate activist for allegedly being involved in sharing with Greta Thunberg a “toolkit” on social media related to the farmers’ protest.

In a tweet, Congress leader P. Chidambaram said the “Indian state must be standing on very shaky foundations” if Disha Ravi was arrested.

 

Poet Rupi Kaur and US Vice-President Kamala Harris’ niece and lawyer, Meena Harris, have spoke strongly against the activist’s arrest.

 

Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal called Ravi’s arrest “an unprecedented attack on Democracy” in a tweet.

 

Swara Bhaskar tweeted in support of Ravi.

 

Ravi, arrested by a Cyber Cell team of the Delhi Police from Bengaluru on Saturday, was produced before a court here and police sought her seven days’ custody.

The police said her custody was required to probe an alleged larger conspiracy against the government of India and to ascertain her alleged role relating to the Khalistan movement.

During the hearing, Ravi broke down inside the courtroom and told the judge that she had edited only two lines and that she wanted to support the farmers’ protest.

Duty Magistrate Dev Saroha allowed the Delhi Police to quiz Ravi for five days.
