Advocate Murad Ali files sedition case against Omar Abdullah, Mehbooba Mufti and others for opposing abrogation of Article 370

A lawyer in Betia court, Murad Ali filed a petition under charges of sedition and criminal conspiracy for opposing the scrapping of Article 370.

An advocate in Bihar has filed a sedition case in a court in Bettiah, West Champaran against Omar Abdullah, Mehbooba Mufti and several others who opposed the abolition of Article 370. Taking cognisance of the case filed by the lawyer, the court has set the next hearing on the case on September 24, 2019.

A lawyer in Betia court, Murad Ali filed a petition under charges of sedition and criminal conspiracy for opposing the scrapping of Article 370. “I have registered a case against former chief ministers of Jammu and Kashmir Mehbooba Mufti, Omar Abdullah and other political leaders who have opposed the abrogation of Article 370,” Ali told ANI.

Ali further elaborated the sections under which he has filed a case. “I have filed the case under Section 124 A (sedition), 153 A (promoting enmity between different groups of religion, race, place of birth, residence and language), 153 B, 504 (Intentional insult with intent to provoke breach of the peace) and 120B (criminal conspiracy) of the Indian Penal Code,” he said.

Ali also mentioned that the court heard his stance and transferred the case to the court of Judicial Magistrate KK Shahi for the next hearing which is on September 24. Ali has alleged that the opposing statements made by Omar Abdullah, Mehbooba Mufti and others have denigrated the government in print, electronic and social media. According to Ali, Omar and Mufti have tried to incite hatred among citizens of the country and attempted to hurt the national integrity and peace of the country.

Omar Abdullah and Mehbooba Mufti have vehemently expressed their disapproval over the government’s move to abrogate Article 370 and bifurcate the state into two Union Territories- Jammu and Kashmir with legislature and Ladakh without legislature. Mufti had tweeted that the resolution to bifurcate J and K has reduced India to an “occupying force” in the state.
