Highlights from Adv. Tanveer Ahmed Mir's rebuttal before a Delhi Court in a Delhi Riots case against sedition accused Sharjeel Imam:

#Sedition #UAPA #SharjeelImam Image
Mir: A man graduating from IIT Bombay, has a good corporate package, leaves that and decides to pursue modern history, but I'm not going to say he lost his head - it's his decision as to how he wants to pursue intellectual brilliance and justify his existence in the world.
Mir says one needs to apply the Kedarnath judgment's interpretation of the sedition provision of IPC because not doing so would imply we are carrying forward a British legacy - they didn't want Indians to rise.

Adv Tanveer Ahmed Mir rebuts Prosecution's arguments against #SharjeelImam who has sought bail in a case connected to #DelhiRiots before Delhi Court. "Sole indictment on the speech. Incumbent duty upon all of us to look at the speech... If it incident violence"
Mir argues in a case of #Sedition against Imam. On #NRC, Mir argues ultimately his client's speech talks about advocating of a policy like... "In a university if we don't debate public policies, where do we debate?" #sharjeel_imam #CAA_NRC #DelhiRiots
Mir: This is a criminal court. We don't go by inferences. I am not denying my speech. For the speech to fall under #Sedition... My friend can't have discretion to add his own thoughts and inferences. #sharjeel_imam #DelhiRiots

#UmarKhalid bail hearing in #DelhiRiots #UAPA case

Umar's lawyer Senior Advocate Trideep Pais told a city court that witness statements are being fabricated, protected witnesses speak in forked tongues & made inconsistent statements @IndianExpress
Pais read out a portion of the chargesheet which read,“Umar Khalid, a veteran of sedition.”

"Is this how chargesheets are written? It seems like a script of some news channel. Where did they get this from?" Pais told the court.
Pais then apprised the court through the sedition case registered against Umar in 2016. He submitted, "Nowhere was it ever alleged that "Bharat Tere Tukde Honge" was ever said by Umar Khalid. Transcript of 2016 chargesheet is here."
