Tabhlighi Jamaat: SC pulls up centre for offensive response, 'how can you say..'
While hearing a case seeking action against television channels for allegedly disseminating fake news about the Tablighi Jamaat and communalising the Nizamuddin markaz incident, The Apex court of India said on Thursday that Freedom of speech is one of the most abused freedoms during recent times. A bench headed by Chief Justice of India SA Bobde took strong exception to the affidavit filed by the central government in response to the petition and stated that it has been filed by a junior officer and also does not address any specific instances of bad reporting raised by the petitioner. Mehta said that he will see to it that a fresh affidavit is filed. The Nizamuddin area in Delhi was sealed on March 30 after it came to light that several people, who had attended a religious event held in March at Nizamuddin by a Muslim sect called Tablighi Jamaat, were found to be infected with coronavirus.
