Faruqui and four others arrested last month after the son of a BJP MLA filed a complaint accusing Faruqui of passing indecent remarks about Hindu deities and Union Home Minister Amit Shah during a show.
The Madhya Pradesh High Court expected to pass its order on the bail plea of stand-up comedian Munawar Faruqui in the next two-three days, according to their advocate.
The Indore bench of the High Court heard the plea of Munawar Faruqui, who has arrested for allegedly insulting Hindu deities during a show.
According to Live Law, during the hearing today, Justice Rohit Arya told Faruqui.
“But why you take undue advantage of other’s religious sentiments and emotions. What is wrong with your mindset? How can you do this for the purpose of business?”
The bench then asked Faruqui’s lawyer Vivek Tankha if he wanted to withdraw the bail application. “He has committed no offence in the matter your lordships.
Bail should be granted,” Tankha submitted.However, another lawyer alleged that Faruqui made other objectionable statements against Lord Ram and Sita. Following this, Justice Rohit Arya said, “Such people must not be spared. I will reserve the order on merits”.
