“Such People Must Not Be Spared”: MP HC Judge Reserves Order In Munawar Faruqui’s Bail Plea

According to Livelaw, Justice Arya of MP High court, said: “Such people must not be spared. I will reserve the order on merits.”

Before making a stinging observation, the Madhya Pradesh High Court’s Justice Rohit Arya on Monday reserved his order in comedian Munawar Faruqui’s bail case. According to Livelaw, Justice Arya said: “Such people must not be spared. I will reserve the order on merits.”

Justice Arya, during the hearing that lasted barely 15 minutes, asked Faruqui’s lawyer: “But why you take undue advantage of other’s religious sentiments and emotions. What is wrong with your mindset? How can you do this for the purpose of your business?”

“You want to object or withdraw your application?” the judge asked Faruqui’s lawyer Vivek Tankha.

This came after a lawyer objecting to Faruqui’s bail application said, “The accused Munawar Faruqui has posted several previous videos which were circulated on social media. He has said, “Ram ji does not give a *** about Sita.”

Faruqui had committed no offence in the matter, adding that the bail should be granted to him, said his lawyer Tankha in response.

Munawar Faruqui was arrested during a New Year show in Indore, along with four other event organisers, for allegedly insulting religious beliefs and also Union Home Minister Amit Shah.

Based on a complaint by Eklavya Gaur, convenor of the Hind Rakshak Sangathan and son of BJP MLA Malini Gaur, the case was filed against comedian and four others.

Tukoganj Police station in-charge Kalmesh Sharma, after the complaint was filed, had said: “The arrested men have been booked under IPC sections 188, 269, 34 and 295A for organising the event sans permission, flouting COVID-19 safety norms, and hurting religious sentiments.”

Since then, Faruqui’s bail was deferred several times in lower court as well as the high court.
