Kamal Haasan comment: Delhi HC says ‘no’ to plea for a direction to ECI
By Thehindu 15-May-2019
A Bench of Justices G.S. Sistani and Jyoti Singh said “no cause of action was made out in Delhi.”
BJP leader Ashwini Kumar Upadhyay’s petition pointed out that at an election rally on May 13 in support of his party candidate in the Aravakurichi Assembly constituency in Tamil Nadu, where bypoll is to be held on Sunday, Makkal Needhi Maiam president Kamal Haasan said, ‘The first terrorist post India's independence is a Hindu. His name is Nathuram Godse’.
The Bench asked Mr. Upadhyay why he did not approach the Madras High Court in whose jurisdiction the statement was made. It, however, allowed him to approach an appropriate forum if he chooses to.
Mr. Upadhyay claimed that Mr, Haasan made the statement “deliberately in the presence of a Muslim majority crowd for electoral gain, which is clearly a corrupt practice under Section 123(3) the Representation of the People Act 1951”.
