22 October 2010

print version of this article print version

[Posted below is a Karnataka High Court Judgement in relation to ’Offending Sentiments and Sensibilities’.

A case was filed by a Bajrangdal Activist against Mr. Nataraju, an anti-superstition activist. The Bajrangdal activist said that he saw Mr. Nagaraju on TV when he was denying miracles like Ayyappa Makara Jyothy etc. and therefore his religious sentiments were hurt/affected.

The High Court made the Home Secretary to appear in court, got his apology and explanation that investigation was improperly conducted etc.

The Judgement reads like a rationalist tract in support of freedom.]
