The Supreme Court on Monday adjourned the batch of petitions seeking to initiate criminal contempt proceedings against stand-up comic Kunal Kamra over his derogatory tweets against the Supreme Court for granting bail to Republic TV Editor-In-Chief Arnab Goswami by four weeks.

The bench, comprising Justices Ashok Bhushan, R. Subhash Reddy, adjourned the matter for a month after one of the petitioners asked for more time to file a rejoinder in the case. This is the second time the hearing has been adjourned. Earlier, it was adjourned by two weeks after a petitioner sought time to file response to Kamra’s affidavit.

Earlier, Kamra had been issued a show-cause notice of contempt by the Supreme Court for his remarks against it. In his reply, Kamra stated, “Irreverence and hyperbole are essential tools for the comedic enterprise.” He said he did not believe “any high authority, including Judges, would find themselves unable to discharge their duties only on account of being the subject of satire or joke.”

Kamra had further submitted, “I believe there is a growing culture of intolerance in the country where taking offence is seen as a fundamental right and is elevated to the status of much loved national indoor sports.”

The matter will be taken up after four weeks after filing of the rejoinder.
