The A G of India declined to file a contempt plea against Swara Bhasker for comments on the SC’s verdict in the Babri Masjid

New Delhi ( Jt news) The Attorney General of India has declined permission to an advocate to file a contempt plea against actoress Swara Bhasker for comments on the Supreme Court’s verdict in the Babri Masjid and Ayodhya land dispute case; the comments were described by the petitioner as derogatory, scandalous and an attack on the institution.According to law Attorney General’s nod is a must before filing a contempt petition in the top court.

Attorney General KK Venugopal said the the speaker did not offer any comment on the Supreme Court itself or say anything that would scandalise or tend to scandalise.He said that in my opinion, this statement does not constitute criminal contempt.The statement, reportedly made at an event in Mumbai, was written out in the Attorney General’s letter:We are living in a country where the Supreme Court states that the demolition of the Babri Masjid was unlawful and, in the same judgment, rewards the same people who brought down the mosque.

In November last year the Supreme Court had ruled that the formerly disputed land in Ayodhya belonged to the deity Ram.The court, however, also said that the razing of the 16th century Babri Masjid in December 1992 was unlawful and a calculated act of destroying a place of public worship.In his statement the Attorney General said the statement in the first part appears to be a factual one, and is perception of the speaker.
