Video | Is Lakshadweep becoming an occupied island?

A picture perfect island, and its happy islanders living there peacefully. One man enters and plans to destroy that peace bit by bit as the world looks on.

Since Praful K Patel’s entry, he has been introducing draconian and ridiculously fascist laws that have the tendency to disrupt, displace and even end the life of the people of Lakshadweep Union Territory. Praful Khoda Patel is a BJP leader who is currently the Administrator of Union Territory of Dadra and Nagar Haveli and Daman and Diu and also Administrator of UT of Lakshadweep.

Buckle in cause you are in for a long story, and it all begins with what Lakshadweep was before Patel’s entry.

Lakshadweep form the smallest union territory of India with a total surface area of just 32 km2 ranging across thirty-nine islands and islets. Around 70, 000 people reside in these Islands, out of which 95% are Muslim. Lakshadweep has the lowest crime rates in India, and its jails are usually empty, astonishing anyone visiting these Islands. Fishing and farming form their main livelihood.

Now all these seem to be trivial facts but are vital in understanding why people are disturbed by the Patel administration.
