A Delhi court last week rejected the anticipatory bail request submitted on behalf of Bhupender Tomar nickname Pinky Chaudhary, primarily involved in the alleged inflammatory and anti-Muslim sloganeering at Jantar Mantar.
We are not a Taliban state. Rule of law is the sacrosanct governing principle in our plural and multicultural society,” Additional Sessions Judge Anil Antil scrutinised while refusing the grant of bail.
Furthermore, it said: “While the whole of India is praising AZADI KA AMRUT MAHOTSAV (Independence Day) there are some intentions still connected with dogmatic and self-centric, ideas. The cooperation of the applicant/accused in the claimed case crime is prima facie obvious from the matter placed before the court.”
“The accusations are severe and the of ence alleged is severe in character.; History is not immune to where such events have happened. public stresses pointing to riots and causing damage to life and property of the general public.”
The Court was also of the view that although Art. 19(1)(a) is a fundamental right cherished in the Constitution of India, however the same cannot be continued to infringe upon the fundamental rights of others, nor can it be extended to the acts that are prejudicial to support of peace; harmony and public order.
