Supreme Court to hear comedian Munawar Faruqui’s bail plea tomorrow

Munawar Faruqui applied for a bail application in regards to a case against him for allegedly insulting the religious sentiments. The hearing for the same has been listed to take place tomorrow in the Supreme Court. The Supreme Court Bench of Justices Rohinton Nariman and BR Gavai will hear this case and it is number 27 on their list. The Madhya Pradesh High Court refused this bail on 28th January and the Sessions Court before that. Not only did Munawar Faruqui challenge the judgement of the Madhya Pradesh High Court but also under Article 32 of the Constitution moved a criminal writ petition. In a recent stand up show, Faruqui had made derogatory remarks against the Hindu Gods and hence he was arrested on January 1. Chief of Hindutva organisation Hind Rakshak Sangathan, Eklavya Singh Gaur filed this complaint.
