SC breather for Dr Swamy!

In a major relief for Dr Subramanian Swamy, the Supreme Court has agreed to hear his plea seeking its intervention in the non bailable warrant issued against him by a local court in Karimganj for a hate speech.
Acting on the plea challenging the court move, a vacation bench of the top court comprising Justice M.Y. Eqbal and Justice Arun Mishra on Monday agreed to hear it in the first week of July.
It would be taken up by another bench next week as senior counsel Ram Jethmalani who is representing him in the case was out of station.
Swamy embroiled in controversy for his comments in March wherein he had said in Guwahati that mosques were just buildings with no religious sentiments attached to them and could be pulled down anytime.
He had remarked that in Saudi Arabia, mosquesare pulled down and constructed at other places if required. The Additional Chief  Judicial Magistrate of Assam’s Karimganj district court  has asked police in Assam and Delhi to present Swamy before it on or before 30 June
