Where is Freedom of Expression? School headmaster suspended for calling Madhya Pradesh CM Kamal Nath a “Dacoit”

In last 4.5 years we had seen that there was abundance of freedom for expression. The competition of expressing one’s views went on to such an extent that few even wanted to kill the prime minister of India. Few abused India’s PM Narendra Modi, few others abused PM’s parents and few others abused the Hindus in India. But none were jailed as there is freedom of expression in India.

But now a school headmaster in Madhya Pradesh has been suspended just for allegedly making derogatory remarks about the Chief Minister Kamal Nath. Reports claim that the headmaster had called Kamal Nath a dacoit. For such a small matter, the Jabalpur District Collector Chhavi Bharadwaj suspended Mukesh Tiwari, the headmaster of government-run Kanishta Buniyadi Middle School.

The headmaster of government-run school had mocked the chief minister Kamal Nath at a meeting held in the school two days ago. The collector’s order stated “On examination of the video, the teacher was prima facie found violating the Madhya Pradesh Civil Services (Conduct) Rules”.

People have now started talking that what would be India’s situation if the Congress party would come to power in 2019 after winning the Lok Sabha elections.

Noted film maker Vivek Agnihotri slammed this act of curbing freedom of expression by saying “He was arrested for spreading half-truths. In reality, Kamal Nath is actually 10% dacoit and 100% Mob-lyncher”.

First of all the Congress party had hurt Indians, especially millions of sikhs by making Kamal Nath the chief minister of Madhya Pradesh. He was one of the main accused in the 1984 anti-sikh riots in which nearly 10,000 sikhs were massacred. Few claims Kamal Nath was leading a mob that killed a sikh family.

Kamal Nath is involved in several other scams too. He was charge sheeted in the Hawala scandal and denied a ticket by the Congress party itself in 1996. But now he is a chief minister of a state where Congress party didn’t get clear majority.
