Jamia Millia Islamia student Safoora Zargar (27), who is in her second trimester of her pregnancy, was sent to Tihar Jail after being charged under the UAPA (Unlawful Activities Prevention Act) for her alleged role in the Northeast Delhi riots. Tuesday was the second time her husband spoke to her since then.

The Counsel of Zargar recently sought bail and informed the Delhi court that she was falsely implicated and was not named in the FIR. However, it was rejected.

One of her teachers had said,

“Safoora is a budding scholar. I am pained to see derogatory remarks on social media with regard to her pregnancy. It’s a reflection of our society… It is not a question of Muslim woman or Hindu woman; it’s about respecting womanhood and dignity of women.”

“We are worried about her health, particularly more so in this pandemic. Her bail plea should be considered with empathy on medical grounds,” she added.

Delhi Prisons DG Sandeep Goel said Zargar was doing “fine”.

“There is a doctor on the premises. Her reports are normal. If the doctor suggests any dietary changes, we will make those. It is also the month of Ramzan, and all those who fast are provided meals accordingly, including khajoor and fruits.”

He stated that since she is an under trial prisoner, she is not expected to work inside the premises.

A few words from her husband:

“We believe in democracy and freedom of speech so one could never have imagined something like this would happen… We have to have faith in the judiciary. We hope we won’t be denied justice and that it comes sooner rather than later.”

Amidst the tension on the Line of Actual Control (LAC); India, on Monday, announced a ban on 59 Chinese applications which includes TikTok, Share It, and WeChat. The ban was announced after The Ministry of Information and Technology quoted:

“We have received many complaints from various sources including several reports about the misuse of some mobile apps… for stealing and surreptitiously transmitting users’ data in an unauthorized manner to servers which have locations outside India”

The ban has been enforced under Section 69A of the Information Technology Act, 2000. Apps like TikTok, Likee, and Helo are very popular among the Indian youth and are the only source of their income. Many of the apps that have been banned have their offices in different Indian states and have Indian employees. The ban would result in loss of employment and the resulting poverty could be another reason to worry about.
