A young woman who raised ‘Pakistan Zindabad’ slogans at a rally in Bengaluru against the Citizenship Amendment Act in the presence of AIMIM chief Asaduddin Owaisi has been charged with sedition, with a judicial magistrate denying her bail. She has been sent to judicial custody for 14 days.
Soon after an interview edited to add her latest sloganeering clip started doing the rounds in which she can be heard crediting some people for what she has done “today”.
“I have become the face of this because of media, but behind is a group of advisory committee, there is a content team, senior activists, my parents and a very big student protest group which is working. I am just the face of it but they are the ones who are working real hard,” Leona says.
