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?” 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.
