Delhi Court granted bail to DU associate professor Ratan Lal

DU Professor

DELHI: Delhi court granted bail to Delhi University associate professor Ratan Lal, who was arrested over an allegedly objectionable social media post about the claims of a shivling being discovered inside the Gyanvapi mosque.

Lal was produced before Chief Metropolitan Magistrate Siddhartha Malik at the Tiz Hazari court by the Delhi police, who sought his 14-day judicial custody. Lal’s advocate had moved his bail application before the CMM arguing that his arrest was in violation of Supreme Court guidelines in the Arnesh Kumar judgment and that he did not incite anyone through his social media post.

Lal’s lawyers told the court that he was “an authority on Ambedkar” and a person of his “stature and intellect” had “not created any enmity” or “called for violence.”

Later, he added –  “Shiva is not the property of a certain section of society. Would he incite his own people? He is a Shiv devotee himself,”.
