The Delhi Police beat a tactful retreat in the Supreme Court on April 22 by promising a “better” affidavit than the one filed that said speeches made at a Hindu Yuva Vahini event did not amount to hate and the gathering was made of people motivated to “save the ethics of their community.
A Bench led by Justice A. M. Khanwilkar expressed incredulity at the tone of the affidavit, asking the police whether it had really applied its mind while figuring out what it wanted to say in an affidavit filed under oath in the Supreme Court.
“The affidavit has been filed by Deputy Commissioner of Police (DCP) … Have you understood the nuances of the case?” the court asked.
The police affidavit came in response to a petition filed by retired High Court judge Anjana Prakash and journalist Qurban Ali, who described speeches made at events held both in Delhi and Haridwar as an “open call for genocide of Muslims in order to achieve ethnic cleansing.”
One of the speeches under the spotlight is that of Sudarshan News TV Editor Suresh Chavhanke at the Delhi event in December last year.
