The Delhi Court recently denied anticipatory bail to Hindu Raksha Dal President Bhupinder Tomar alias Pinky Chaudhary in an alleged Case of ‘anti-Muslim sloganeering at Jantar Mantar’.

Denying the anticipatory bail the Additional Sessions Judge Anil Antil stated that “We are not a Taliban state. Rule of law is the sacrosanct governing principle in our plural and multicultural society”.

The Court mentioned that “Complicity of the accused in the alleged Case, crime is prima facie apparent from the material placed before the Court, based on video clips, “the interview of the applicant is impregnated with high octane communal barbs laced with inflammatory, insulting and threatening gestures, ex-facie is indicative of the calculative design on the part of the applicant to promote hatred and ill will amongst other sections of the community”.

In a similar Case, other day Delhi Court denied the bail pleas of Preet Singh, Vinod Singh, and Deepak Singh Hindu highlighting the fact that everyone has the right to express themselves but only until it does not hamper the religious harmony of the Society.

Although, Ashwini Upadhyay, Supreme Court lawyer and BJP leader, in the same case, has already been granted bail after he was arrested and was kept for two days in Judicial custody.
