Statement given due to rising corona case in union territory
Ayesha participated in a TV debate in a Malayalam TV channel this week itself. In which he said – Lakshadweep had zero Kovid 19 cases. Now 100 cases are being reported daily. Has the central government run Bio Weapon? I can clearly say that the Central Government has used Bio Weapon.
BJP chief lodged complaint
After this comment of Ayesha, BJP workers in Lakshadweep protested on the streets. Lakshadweep BJP chief C Abdul Kader Haji has lodged a complaint with the police against Ayesha Sultana for making anti-national remarks and tarnishing the patriotic image of the central government.
Ayesha clarified on Facebook
Ayesha has strongly criticized the administrator’s controversial decisions, which have sparked protests and anger in the islands. The filmmaker defended himself on Facebook, writing- “They have filed a case of sedition against me, but I want to reiterate that truth will prevail. The case was registered by a BJP worker from Lakshadweep. I am for that land.” I will continue my fight where I was born. We are not afraid of anyone. My voice is going to get louder now.”
The case against him is getting sharp reactions on social media. Shashi Tharoor has posted on social media in support of Ayesha.
3/3 The sedition case will fail in the courts, since it does not meet basic standards, but she will be made to suffer till then. The process is the punishment. It is a total abuse of the process of law & unworthy of our democracy. The case against Aisha Sultana shld be withdrawn.

Ayesha is not the only opponent
Before this statement of Ayesha, MP Mohammad Faizal had also objected to Praful Patel removing the quarantine protocol for people coming to Lakshadweep. Which was earlier mandatory for those going there from outside. Faizal says that till Praful Patel is not called back, his protest will continue. Lakshadweep needs an administrator who understands the people here, respects the representatives here. Whatever orders passed by Praful Patel, his protest will continue till they are withdrawn.
That’s why Praful’s protest is happening
Lakshadweep has been in the news for the last two weeks. The reason is, the steps taken by the administrator here in recent months. Praful Patel, the administrator of Daman-Diu and Dadra-Nagar Haveli, was given additional charge of Lakshadweep in December 2020. Since then they have banned beef here, lifted the ban on alcohol, gave unlimited powers to the new development authority and passed a tough law that allows anyone to be jailed for up to a year without bail. is. In Lakshadweep with a population of about 70 thousand, 96% are Muslims.
