The Supreme Court Bar Association has expressed dismay at the force used to break the Delhi farmers protest. The association said farmers have the right to discuss, criticise and protest against the Centre’s farm laws. It called upon all concerned Governments to uphold the farmers’ right to peaceful protest.
This Association emphasises that the right of citizens to discuss, debate, criticise or protest against such Bills or Acts is sacrosanct. Peaceful protest is a cornerstone of our Constitution and the bedrock of human rights.
