Mohammed Zubair, the co-founder of fact-checking website Alt News, was arrested last night over a 2018 tweet, weeks after he called out BJP leader Nupur Sharma’s incendiary remarks on Prophet Muhammad that triggered a huge crisis for the government and led to protests in India and anger from Gulf countries.

The tweet by Mohammed Zubair was “highly provocative and more than sufficient to incite feeling of hatred” among people, says a Delhi Police First Information Report (FIR).

In the tweet, Mr Zubair shared a clip from legendary filmmaker Hrishikesh Mukherjee’s 1983 classic Kissi Se Na Kehna.
