Journalists come out in support of AAP's Ashutosh after NCW notice

Following protests by Bharatiya Janata Party and Congress, the National Commission for Women reacted to the column penned by Aam Aadmi Party’s Ashutosh. NCW expressed anguish over the AAP leader supposedly giving a clean chit to rape accused Sandeep Kumar.

“The Commission is therefore, extremely upset with such irresponsible, misogynist and disparaging views by persons holding responsible positions,” NCW said in a letter signed by Chairperson Lalitha Kumaramangalam.

The commission also directed Ashutosh to appear before it on September 8. Ashutosh, formerly with IBN7, hit back at NCW accusing the commission of stifling freedom of speech and expression. “Should I be hanged for writing a column,” he asked. He also hinted at Lalitha Kumaramangalam’s association with the BJP as a national executive member. 

Meanwhile, numerous journalists came out in support of Ashutosh on Twitter. These included renowned names like Barkha Dutt, Rajdeep Sardesai, Shekhar Gupta and QW Naqvi. 

In a series of tweets, Ashutosh maintained that he wasn’t afraid of the FIR registered against him and was willing to fight it out. He called for a debate on the right to freely express viewpoints in relation to history.
