Disha Ravi Bail, Toolkit Case: "Am Happy... Still Value To Truth In India": Disha Ravi's Mother To NDTV
Hours after Disha Ravi, the 22-year-old climate activist who was arrested February 13 in connection with the "toolkit" case and charged with sedition, was granted bail by a Delhi court, her mother spoke to NDTV, and expressed her joy, relief and trust in the country's legal system.
"I am relieved.. am very happy. I believe in India's legal system.. there is value to truth in India," she said, barely able to hold back her tears, adding, "I don't know how to say thanks to all the people who supported her and came out for her."
She said when her daughter returned home to Bengaluru "I just want to hug her and feed her."
"Every time Disha spoke to us it was she who gave us the confidence and strength. My daughter is very strong and bold (and) after all this, I have emerged a stronger mother," she added.
"My message to other parents - we should stand by our children (and) in such difficult times we should be strong for them," Ms Ravi's mother said.
