Salman Rushdie on Internet

Absolve Kanhaiya Kumar of charge of sedition or charge me with sedition, says Harsh Mander

"It either absolves Kanhaiya Kumar of all charges of sedition. Or, if it persists in its belief that he committed the crime of sedition, then it must charge me also with criminal sedition, and arrest me, and subject me to the same investigation to which Kanhaiya Kumar is being subjected. This is because I have, in writing, taken similar positions on the issues for which his conduct is criminalised."

--Noam Chomsky
