By Srishti Ojha: In a derogatory plea against Yati Narsinghanand for his remarks to the Supreme Court, the Supreme Court on Monday asked activist Shachi Nelli, who is also the petitioner, to produce the transcript of the content of the video containing the interrogated statements.
A bench of judges Dinesh Maheshwari and Bela Trivedi gave the petitioner three weeks to do the same.
After AG KK Venugopal gave its consent to initiate contempt proceedings against Yati Narshinghanand in January 2022, the present petition was filed with the Supreme Court.
The disparaging plea relates to an interview that went viral on the social media platform Twitter.
The AG had said that Yati Narsinghanand’s statements certainly amounted to contempt of the Supreme Court of India.
Yati Narsinghanand is said to have said, “Those who believe in this system, in these politicians, in the Supreme Court and in the military will all die a dog’s death.” The attorney general said the statements are a direct attempt to lower the Supreme Court’s authority in the minds of the general public.
In her letter to the AG, the petitioner pointed out that Yati Narsinghanand had also said: “We have no faith in the Supreme Court of India and the Constitution. The Constitution will consume the 100 crore Hindus of this country. Those who believe in this Constitution will be killed .
According to Nelli, Yati Narsinghanand’s comments were trying to undermine the majesty of the institution and the authority of the Supreme Court.
