Kunal Kamra Scandalises Supreme Court’s Decision To Release Arnab, Ends Up In Trouble.


The permission of Attorney General KK Venugopal to initiate contempt of court proceedings against stand-up comic artist Kunal Kamra for his tweets criticizing the Supreme Court has been sought.

In his letter to AG, Bombay-based lawyer Rizwan Siddiquee claimed that Kamra’s tweets on a Supreme Court verdict, unsavory remarks on Justice DY Chandrachud and the circulation of a morphed image of the premises of the Supreme Court, published on Twitter, amounted to a “manifest attempt to lower the authority of the Supreme Court of India.”

The history of Kunal Kamra ‘s tweets was the order of the Supreme Court passed by a bench headed by Justice DY Chandrachud on Wednesday granting bail to the editor-in-chief of Republic TV, Arnab Goswami.

Kamra ‘s four tweets forming the basis of Siddiquee ‘s request are as follows:

1. The Supreme Court of this country is the most Supreme joke of this country…

2 .The pace at which the Supreme Court operates in matters of “National Interests” it’s time we replace Mahatma Gandhi’s photo with Harish Salve’s photo…

3. DY Chandrachud is a flight attendant serving champagne to first-class passengers after they’re fast tracked through, while commoners don’t know if they’ll ever be boarded or seated, let alone served.

4. All lawyers with a spine must stop the use of the prefix “Hon’ble” while referring to the Supreme Court or its judges. Honour has left the building long back…

Siddiquee also pointed out that Kamra had posted a photo of the Supreme Court building that was a morphed image that gave it an orange shade and depicted a BJP flag hoisted in the Supreme Court foyer.

If such unruly and salacious comments are permitted to go unchecked, the letter notes that users such as Kamra, who has millions of followers, will take the same route and make rash claims when a decision is not in their favor.

“The confidence of the people in it is the greatest strength of the judiciary, a conviction that should not be allowed to erode because of any calculated and well-timed propaganda,”

People started making fun of him and demanding the arrest of comedy karma.
