The Supreme Court today observed that there has to be a balance between speech and dignity. The top court was hearing a plea against television channel Sudarshan News, pertaining to its programme titled ‘UPSC Jihad’ which runs into several episodes.
The Supreme Court today made some strong observations while restricting news channel Sudarshan TV from telecasting the remaining episodes of its show 'Bindas Bol' that talks about Muslims who get through the UPSC exam until further orders.
Senior Advocate Rakesh Dwivedi, appearing for West Bengal, said the matter is in the ambit of the concurrent list, where both the Centre and the State can legislate. The State law cannot be rendered repugnant to the Centre’s law, until and unless it is in conflict with the same.
