Chennai Police arrested the controversial tweeter Kishore K Swamy who identifies himself as a “Political analyst” on Monday. The arrest has been made after he made defamatory comments against Tamil nadu chief minister MK Stalin, former Chief ministers Annadurai and M Karunanithi. Complaints have been made against him for abusing female journalists as well. It is notable that he got arrested twice earlier for similar reasons and got out on bail.
Based on the complaint made by the DMK IT wing coordinator, Shankar Nagar Police arrested Kishore K Swamy and cited his comments on the current Chief minister MK Stalin and former Chief ministers as the reason for his arrest. Casen under sections 153 (Wantonly giving provocation with intent to cause riot), Section (1) (b) (Causing fear of Alarm to the public), Section (1) (C) (Create or Promote enmity, hatred or ill-will between different religious, racial, language or regional groups or castes or communities) of Indian Penal Code.
It is very well known that Kishore K Swamy is a right wing supporter and as soon as the news on his arrest surfaced, party members of BJP and the supporters of it started raising voice against it. Actress cum politician Gayathri Raguramm wrote “I condemn Kishore K swamy arrest For speaking against DMK leaders. What happened to democracy? When Udhaynidhi Stalin can lie about PM Modi ji, CM Stalin can lie about PM Modi ji, when thirumavalavan can talk bad about Hindu dharma, Brahmins and PM” in her tweet and added many other tweets with hashtag saying “Release Kishore K Swamy”

Periyasam has democracy to talk whatever they want and comment vulgarly about all other Hindu leaders and Hindu supporters and particular community. This is not acceptable. I request president rule in Tamil Nadu. Hindus need freedom. @narendramodi @Swamy39
K Annamalai of BJP said that DMK is oppressing the freedom of speech by arresting Kishore K Swamy for speaking against the family members of DMK.
.@arivalayam குடும்பத்தை,அதன் தலைவர்களை விமர்சிப்பது குற்றமெனில்,கருத்து சுதந்திரத்திற்கு இங்கு இடமேது— K.Annamalai (@annamalai_k) June 14, 2021
இதே அளவுகோல் பல தலைவர்களை கேலி பேசுவோருக்கு உண்டா?பொதுவாழ்க்கையில் மனஉறுதி முக்கிய பண்பு;திமுகவிற்கு அது இல்லை போல.
கருத்து சுதந்திரத்தின் குரல்வளையை நசுக்காதீர்#KishoreKswamy
Meanwhile, Maridhas said that the ongoing Tamil nadu government must be cancelled for arresting Kishore K Swamy. “Did he speak anything that DMK leaders didn’t ? There is no efficiency to to govern the state properly. Stalin is involved in doing the politics of repression. The government should be cancelled for misusing the law” he said in his tweet.
திமுக நிர்வாகிகள் பேசாத பேச்சா போடாத பதிவா! ஆட்சி நிர்வாகத்தை ஒழுங்கா செய்யத் திறமை இல்லை, கேட்கும் கேள்விகளுக்குப் பதில் இல்லை! ஆக வழக்கமான அடக்குமுறை அரசியலில் திமுக ஸ்டாலின் அவர்கள் இறங்கியுள்ளார்.— Maridhas🇮🇳 (@MaridhasAnswers) June 14, 2021
சட்டத்தை தன் பழிவாங்கும் அரசியலுக்கு வளைக்கும் இந்த ஆட்சியை கலைப்பது தான் சரி.
Replying to this tweet of Maridhas, filmmaker John Mahendran (son of legendary filmmaker Mahendran) who directed films such as “Sachien” (2005), uploaded a 2014 post of Kishore K Swamy and asked why a government should be cancelled for arresting such as abuser. “If you are a brave man, just write and rub the government in a slate” he questioned through his tweet.
