Srinagar: Former Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti alleged that speaking truth to power is deliberately being misconstrued as misuse of liberty.
Mufti was reacting to a report that two journalists were booked after they reported about a school principal forced by the Army to host a Republic Day function.
Taking to micro-blogging site Twitter, Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) president Mehbooba said, “ In Kashmir, journalists report about a school principal forced by Army to host a Republic Day function. Days later, a complaint is filed & the court denies them anticipatory bail. We live in times where speaking truth to power is deliberately misconstrued as ‘misuse of liberty’.”
