Indian Supreme Court and its mysterious ways

SC upholds ban on book against Islam
NEW DELHI: The Supreme Court on Friday said it was more concerned with peace in society than a person's fundamental right to freedom of speech and upheld a Maharashtra government ban on a book titled "A Concept of Political World Invasion by Muslims".{Basically, it is a open lesson for Hindus - Mofo Husain denigrates Hindu Gods/Godesses, protests against his perverted paintings will do zilch instead attack mohammedans, their properties etc and our courts, which are more concerned with peace in society than a person's fundamental right to freedom of speech and thought, will do the rest.}

Petitioner R V Bhasin had challenged the state government's 2007 decision four years after the publication of the book to ban it on the ground that it perpetrated hatred against Muslims, promoted enmity between communities and on the apprehension that it would breach harmony in society.

The Bombay High Court had said that the state government committed no wrong by banning the book. "The way this sensitive topic is handled by the author, it is likely to arouse the emotions and sensibilities of even strong minded people. We have held that criticism of Islam is permissible like criticism of any other religion and the book cannot be banned on that ground...But the author has gone on to pass insulting comments on Islam."

Dismissing the appeal against the HC order, an apex court Bench comprising Justices P Sathasivam and H L Dattu said it agreed with the HC that a person's freedom to expression permitted him to criticise a religion, but it could not be at the cost of public interest and public peace.

"We should not allow this kind of book to be read by citizens. You are entitled to criticise a religion. But, if an ordinary citizen reads your book, then there could be some misconception leading to clash between communities," the Bench said refusing to entertain the appeal.

"We are not against your right. But, we are more for public interest and public peace in the country," the Bench said, adding that it was satisfied that the HC had considered the matter threadbare before upholding the ban.{Ooooh moral bombast is one thing Messrs Sathasivam and Dattu but what about the violation of constitutionally guaranteed fundamental rights especially the right to freedom of speech and expression. So tomorrow if anybody criticizes any religion, you will be banning his books and prosecute him/her under IPC. I promise to watch this space.}
Heard and read a lot about freedom of speech, thought and what not during publicity hungry and an absconding criminal MF Hussain saga. But the same voices who went ballistic at that time are silent when this news report came out. Because our secular dickheads are actually Hinduphobes and do not believe a word of what they say. To them, if you score a brownie point against Hindus, it is a good day in the office but such news reports exposes them as two bit cowards who will capitulate moment who threaten them with violence and actually carry it out. That is the reason why they never speak about freedom of speech type arguments when it comes to mohammedans and islamic cult. These jokers are following a set script but what about the Supreme Court? What is their fear or motivation? Can it be that they too are scared of jihadist loon's and the political fallout? I think this is most probably the case and it only erodes the credibility of Supreme Court and its verdicts in the past and future regarding these types of cases should be microscopically examined and the incompetent cowering cowards of Supreme Court should be named, shamed and stripped off their positions.
