SC seeks affidavit from petitioner wrt hate speech cases

Supreme Court today asked the petitioner, Harpreet Mansukhani, to file an affidavit before November 1, in connection with her plea filed before it in hate speech cases.

“Let the affidavit be filed (by the petitioner Harpreet Mansukhani) before November 1, and the matter be listed on November 1, 2022, instead,” a bench of the Supreme Court, headed by the Chief Justice of India (CJI) Uday Umesh Lalit said, in his order today.

The Petitioner in person, Harpreet Mansukhani told the Supreme Court bench that the hate speech was given to make India a Hindu Rashtra before the 2024 elections. Celebrities like Sushant Singh Rajput and others were killed. 72 hate speeches have been mentioned.

“I have been trying to appear before this court since 6 months. hate speech has been turned into a profitable business. A party funded Kashmir files and then I have proof how it was funded and then made tax-free hate speech,” Mansukhani told the Supreme Court bench.

She also said that she, in her petiton, have attached confessions of some senior BJP (Bharatiya Janata Party) Leaders who says that yes minority was killed. Retired army chief, presidents etc wrote to the PM saying this but there was no response.

She also made it clear that regarding such an earlier case, Justice Dr Dhananjaya Yashwant Chandrachud and Hima Kohli also sought a status report regarding implementation of the Tehseen poonawalla judgment.

“You are correct that entire atmosphere is getting sullied by these hate speeches and that it needs to be stopped,” the CJI Lalit observed, during the course of the hearing.

Mansukhani, however, went on to plead to the Supreme Court that the hate speeches have not been stopped, depsiye strict order and punishment for it. Thereby, the SC should pass necessary directions to prevent this conspiracy.

Mansukhani said that everytime a hate speech is given it is like an arrow which never returns.

The Supreme Court said that we need some sample of cases. otherwise it is a random petition. Then an Amicus Curiae (Friend of the Court to assist in the case) needs to be appointed in such a case, and fixed the matter for further hearing to November 01
