At the same time, a user named Vicky wrote, “The public has become aware of a traitor like you, so your trembling, rage now seems nothing more than a joke to the public. The person whom you are teaching democracy is being elected by the people continuously for the last 22 years, while you and your bosses have ended because of your betrayal.
Let us tell you that Delhi Police recently arrested Zubair Mohammad for a tweet made in the year 2018. His arrest was angered by leaders of several organizations and political parties and termed it as “politics of hate”.
Significantly, Zubair had filed a bail petition in the Supreme Court, which is to be heard on Friday. But he has been put in jail for 14 days by Sitapur court. In the petition, Mohammad Zubair challenged the order of the High Court, saying that there was a threat to his life. Mohd Zubair’s lawyer Colin Gonsalves said that Zubair is constantly receiving death threats, in such a situation it has become necessary to hear his plea for protection immediately.
