“UPSC Jihad”: Ex-bureaucrats move court over ‘hate speech’

Amid the raging controversy over Sudarshan TV programme “UPSC Jihad”, a group of former bureaucrats on Monday moved the Supreme Court seeking a stay on the programme that alleged Muslims had “infiltrated” civil services in a planned manner.

“In its plea, ‘Constitutional Conduct Group’, which included Amitabha Pande and six others, stated: “Freedom of speech and expression is not limited to what the ruling dispensation may find palatable or what public consensus may permit but includes the freedom to dissent, to question received wisdom and established social mores and to offend, shock or disturb,” they said in their plea.”
