Bidar school sedition case - Bail for teacher, mother

Bidar, Feb 14 (IANS): A school head mistress and a student's mother in Karnataka's Bidar who have been charged with sedition were granted bail on Friday after 14 days in custody, a police official said.

"I have just received a phone call that the two women received bail. We are still awaiting documents from the court," Bidar's Superintendent of Police D. L. Nagesh told IANS.

Fareeda Begum, 50, the head mistress of the Shaheen Group of Institutions school and Nazbunnisa, 36, a parent of one of the students in the anti-CAA play, in which the minor students allegedly abused Prime Minister Narendra Modi, were arrested on January 30.

The police acted on a complaint from eleesh Rakshyal.

The play enacted by minor school children on January 21, according to former SP Sreedhara, had abusive language against Modi, and claiming that Muslims were being thrown out of India and openly called for the defiance of the law.

Six children who acted in the play were below 10 years of age, and rehearsed the play for 10 days.

With its head office at Shaheen Nagar in Bidar and managed by the Allama Iqbal Educational Society, the Shaheen Group of Institutions runs a string of institutes from kindergarten to undergraduation.

    Shame on our legal system where at the same time license has been given to hindutva forces to abuse minorities at public places.

    The contrasting police responses to a play against CAA and reenactment of Babri Demolition.
    The Karnataka police's investigations into two plays by schools in Bidar and Kalladka raise a question: are Muslim children policed differently?

    Sri Rama Vidyakendra High School, in Dakshina Kannada, on the other hand, is owned and run by Bhat, a very influential RSS functionary. The school children had enacted the drama amid huge cheers and among the chief guests were Union minister D.V. Sadananda Gowda, Puducherry governor Kiran Bedu and several ministers from Karnataka.

    On the other hand, in the Kalladka case, the police showed restraint and only invoked charges under section 295A and 298 of the IPC for committing a ‘deliberate and malicious act, and intended to outrage reli­gious feelings of any class by insulting its religion or reli­gious beliefs’ and ‘uttering, words, etc., with deliberate intent to wound the religious feelings of any person’. These are both bailable sections and the maximum punishment under them is three and one years respectively.

    One state two set of rule. Leiniency for Kalladka Bhat because of RSS connections and another for Bidar because they are minority Muslims.
