SC to decide tomorrow on Contempt Proceedings against Kunal Kamra over his recent tweets on Judges and Judiciary

 On Thursday, the Supreme Court reserved its order on contempt petitions filed against Comedian Kunal Kamra.


The petitions against the stand-up comedian were filed by two law students Shrirang Katneshwarkar and Skand Bajpai and a lawyer Abhijudaya Mishra in regard to Kunal's constant tweets regrading Judges and Judiciary- specially the Supreme Court.


In latest update, the Comeidan tweeted an objectionable picture dedicating it to the CJI and also allegedly criticized the Judiciary which the Attorney General said were in “bad taste”. Venugopal had last month given his consent for initiating Contempt proceedings against Kamra for his November 18 tweet, saying it was “grossly vulgar and obnoxious” and tended to lower the authority of the Supreme Court.


Attorney General K K Venugopal had also said that "it was time people understood that attacking it brazenly will attract punishment."


The consent of either the Attorney General or the Solicitor General is necessary, under section 15 of the Contempt of Courts Act, 1971, for initiating contempt proceedings against a person.

The petitioners claimed that Kamra started publishing tweets on November 11 when the Top Court was hearing the appeal of journalist Arnab Goswami against the Bombay High Court’s order rejecting his plea seeking interim bail in the 2018 abetment to suicide case.


Kamra had refused to retract his tweets and apologise and thereafter he started similer series of tweets on Nov 18 which are deem to be in a bad taste. 


“The tweets I recently put out have been found in contempt of court. All that I tweeted was from my view of the Supreme Court of India giving a partial decision in favour of a Prime Time Loudspeaker,” he said in a statement addressed to Venugopal and the judges on his Twitter page. “My view hasn’t changed because the silence of the Supreme Court of India on matters of other’s personal liberty cannot go uncriticized. I don’t intend to retract my tweets or apologise for them. I believe they speak for themselves,” he had added.

A bench comprising of Justice Ashok Bhushan, Justice RS Reddy and Justice MR Shah will pass the orders on Friday.
