While the minorities struggle for justice against what they call a communal citizenship law, they are scared to demand justice for Imam who stood with them. With the silence of the Muslims over Sharjeel Imam’s issue, the government is successful in sending a stern message to the minorities to fall in line.

Days before his arrest, the image of Sharjeel was constructed by the media as a ‘threat’ to the nation and Hindus. The fear was created to legitimize ensuing sedition charges on him. With Sharjeel’s issue, attempts are being made to communalize Delhi voters who are going to cast votes within a week.

We can and must argue otherwise, but to demonise and delegitimise Sharjeel Imam is to give a tacit approval to sedition charges on him in particular and state repression against dissenting voices at large.
