BREAKING: OPIndia, Indic Collective Trust and Upword Foundation seek to intervene in the @SudarshanNewsTV case in SC. Asks whether its constitutionally permissible for SC to judicially legislate a new species of impermissible speech,
namely Hate Speech? @OpIndia_com @jsaideepak
Plea says assuming the authority finds nothing objectionable with the content under the applicable law, does any statute or the Constitution itself permit Constitutional Courts to step into the shoes of the State to restrain the broadcast of such content? #SupremeCourt
In the backdrop of the #UPSC_Jihad case, "neither morals nor laws can or must be laid down in vacuum. After all, they do not operate in vacuum and must, therefore, be informed
by experience."

Since Supreme Court is hearing on #UPSC_Jihad issue, here is a box-plot diagram of category-wise marks range for Muslims(1) and non-Muslims(0) for 2018.
I believe UPSC must be made a party and asked to explain the difference that remains for last 3 years.
Here is the box-plots for Interview (Personality Test) for 2017. Number 1 represents Muslims. Number 0 represents non-Muslims. Central line in each chart is mean. Top and bottom edges of box represent 25th and 75th percentile.
towardsdatascience.com/understanding-… will explain
Here is the box-plot for 2016. Same pattern as 2018 and 2017. Why?

@SudarshanNewsTV
@SureshChavhanke
#SupremeCourt’s Justice Chandrachud led bench had restrained Sudarshan TV News from telecasting remaining episodes of the 'Bindas Bol' show about Muslims clearing the UPSC exam until further orders, after prima facie observing that the object of the show was to vilify Muslims.
@SudarshanNewsTV has stated that the show has been made out of investigative journalism, which reveals “illegal foreign funding” tied to terrorist linked organizations of UPSC coaching centres that cater to the minority community.

I don’t care whether
@SureshChavhanke @SudarshanNewsTV are right or wrong in their claim of a #UPSC_Jihad happening.
They have the complete right to express their point of view, as they have not resorted to violence.
It is the duty of the rest to educate why that view is wrong.
What matters here is that Sudarshan News must not be stopped simply because it will hurt one community.
What has been done to ascertain that the claims of Sudarshan News are false?
I haven’t seen the show, nor do I plan to watch it.
But, I will strongly argue the right of Sudarshan news to express their views.

SHAMEFUL order by #JusticeChandrachud & co, to RESTRAIN @SudarshanNewsTV's program on #UPSC_Jihad ... Judges didn't watch a single clip of the program & fallen 4 secular-cries of Muslim-Petitioners based on slides/screenshots 4m program.

P.S. Chandrachud in-line to become CJI😎
The way #JusticeChandrachud & co, ran the proceedings in the case yesterday, it was CLEAR they came to the court to restrain the channel. They were just chanting communalism and didn't listen to channel's request to see the video of the program first.
#Sad
#SupremeCourt order to censor @SudarshanNewsTV 4 #UPSC_Jihad story, is ATTACK on #MediaFreedom. Restraining it with color of communalism is dangerous mindset.

@rsprasad @narendramodi MUST SPEAK to #CJIBobde & take ACTION against #JusticeChandrachud & Co!
