The Kerala High Court has granted anticipatory bail to a man accused under section 153A IPC for promoting enmity between different groups on grounds of religion, while propagating his religious thoughts through a YouTube channel.
Senior Advocate Rebecca John, representing Priya Ramani in MJ Akbar’s criminal defamation case, said today that there was no complaint lodged until 2015, because in those days the scope of IPC Section 354 was not as wide.
A petition was moved in Kerala high court seeking directions to Isha foundation not to collect funds from the public in Cauvery calling projects. The petition advocate AV Amarnathan recently sent a notice to the Discovery channel stating not to air a programme of the project. Because of this act, Kerala high court has decided to treat the plea as a suo moto petition.
