I don't want to detract from the issue of what Intelligentsiya is about: telling it like it is about the human rights questions in
But there are a few points that need to be clarified about the frenzy to find the Intelligentsiya bloggers - The information ministry in its press statement referred to Intelligentsiya.com and so have other media outlets. But this blog is hosted on blogspot. Enough said about it though.
Another point – Interim AG Aiyaz Sayed Khaiyum was on Niu FM in New Zealand suggesting that blogs such as Intelligentsiya are "inciting" (there's that word again) people to "violence". A simple visit to our blog and a read through some of the posts will show we advocate “intelligent resistance” not violence, which is more the army’s tactics.
You can listen to the AG at Niu FM here. But here’s a rough transcript of what he said:
"If you have people going around for example, trying incite people, trying to get them to cause violence, trying to get them to have direct violence against different peoples, or trying to create some sort of disturbance within society, then obviously these regulations are in place to ensure that that does not take place or reach fruition."
Again, enough said.
