#SupremeCourtโ€™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 โ€œillegal foreign fundingโ€ tied to terrorist linked organizations of UPSC coaching centres that cater to the minority community.

Top Court to hear a plea against the Sudarshan TV programme acclaimed as a ''big expose on the conspiracy" of Muslims indulging in "infiltrating government service''.

#SupremeCourtofIndia
@SureshChavhanke
Though top court had refused to pass a pre-broadcast injunction order against the show, expression of views derogatory to a particular community had a "divisive potential" & the petition had raised significant issues bearing on the "protection of constitutional rights".
The court while doing so had thus issued notice to Union of India, Press Council of India, News Broadcasters Association as well as Sudarshan News, returnable today.
