This refers to the news "Employees arrested during unrest to face action." The Jammu and Kashmir government is adding fuel to the fire. Protests in any democratic set up are allowed. But here the employees are crushed with threats. Government must understand the importance of allowing dissent, allowing people to express their opinion. Or it must declare itself as a dictatorship, where there is no room for dissent. Thousands of youth were arrested during the recent unrest. Many of them were released but only after the state slapped PSA on them. What was their sin? They were just harassed for taking to streets which was their right. Let the state not initiate action against any employee. Rather it must try to ensure that complete normalcy is restored in the region, which has seen the worse form of bloodshed and tyranny.
