The Madhya Pradesh High Court on Monday reserved the order on the bail application filed by controversial standup comedian Munawar Faruqi and Nalin Yadav in the case related to hurting religious sentiments of Hindus.
At Monday’s hearing, the advocate of accused claimed that there was no evidence to substantiate the allegations that Munawwar made derogatory remarks against Hindu gods. He also raised an objection to the application given by Uttar Pradesh Police to take custody of Munawar in alleged derogatory comments against Hindu deities in another show in May last year.
Faruqi and three others had filed a bail application on January 2, 2021, after his arrest a day ago on the complaint lodged by Eklavya Singh Gaur, President of Hind Rakshak Sangathan, but the Court rejected the bail application and sent him to judicial custody till January 13. The quartet then approached MP High Court.
