Solicitor General Tushar Mehta had countered: “There is a suo motu case regarding dignified handling of the dead.” Amicus Arora said: “That may be so, the poor are unable to dispose of the dead. Why cannot the state give a ritual semblance to the disposal of the dead?”
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.
