NEW DELHI: The Supreme Court on Wednesday took suo moto cognizance of a video clip of a speech by social activist Harsh Mander, where he made objectionable statements against the top court on its decision in crucial matters such as NRC, Ayodhya, and Kashmir. Mander had moved the top court seeking FIR against BJP leaders for making hate speeches and accused them of inciting riots. According to the video clip from December 2019 in Jamia Millia Islamia, he is allegedly heard saying “I have been observing the Supreme Court for some time...In its judgment in NRC, Ayodhya, and Kashmir, the Supreme Court has failed to protect humanity, equality, and secularism. “We can no longer bank on the Supreme Court and Parliament. That is why all of you will have to come to the street. Ultimately you will get justice only on the street.”

Solicitor General Tushar Mehta, during the hearing on the Delhi riots matter, termed it as the “worst kind of hate speech” as “Mander is seen instigating citizens against the country’s Supreme Court”. The top court has asked Mehta to file an affidavit today and agreed to take up the matter on Friday. (IANS)
