Attorney General grants consent to initiate contempt against comedian Kunal Kamra

The depiction of the two fingers, with the legend that he means the middle one, is to deliberately insult the Chief Justice of India and which would equally be an insult to Supreme Court of India itself. On November 18, Kamra had shared photo of two fingers on Twitter with a captain that read, “One of these 2 fingers is CJI Arvind Bobde…OK let me not confuse you it’s the middle one.”
Subsequently on November 12 the Attorney General had granted consent to initiate contempt proceedings against Kamra over his tweet about Supreme court. The Attorney General was of the view that the tweet was “highly objectionable”. Though later Kamra said that he does not intend to retract his tweets or apologize for them and that the “silence of the Supreme Court on matters of other’s personal liberty cannot go uncriticised.” The said tweet was grossly vulgar and obnoxious as a result of which it lowers the authority of Supreme Court of India as well as undermine the confidence that the litigant public have in the institution of the Supreme Court of India itself.
The courts have dignity, they are the ones, the framers and makers of law and strive to ensure, peace and harmony in society. The individual of society or any other laymen do not have any authority to pass comments or defame the judges or advocates of the court openly on any social networking websites. They also have respect in the society.
