Mohammed Zubair

The Supreme Court on Wednesday granted bail to Alt News co-founder Mohammad Zubair in all the FIRs registered against him in Uttar Pradesh. Zubair shall be released by 6 pm today, ordered the SC.

The Apex Court also ordered disbanding of the SIT formed by the Uttar Pradesh Police for the investigation of FIRs against him. The bench led by Justice DY Chandrachud also directed to transfer all UP FIRs to Delhi Police Special Cell.

“How can we say that? It’s like asking a lawyer not to argue…a person not to speak. Whatever he does, he will be responsible in law but we can’t ask a journalist not to write,” said SC.

Six FIRs were filed against Zubair in Lakhimpur Kheri, Ghaziabad, Muzzafarnagar, and two in the Hathras districts of Uttar Pradesh. The FIRs were filed on charges of allegedly hurting religious feelings, making sarcastic remarks on news anchors, disrespecting Hindu gods and inflammatory posts.

Vrinda Grover, Zubair’s lawyer, had requested the court for interim relief as a court in Hathras was set to pronounce its order on a plea by the Uttar Pradesh Police seeking 14-day police custody of Zubair. On July 15, the Hathras court granted 14-day judicial custody, after which Zubair was transferred back to Delhi’s Tihar Jail.

On July 8, Mohammad Zubair was granted interim bail in the Sitapur FIR and on July 13, his interim bail in the Sitapur case was extended until further orders. Zubair, on July 15, was granted regular bail by the Patiala House Court in connection with FIR filed against the Delhi Police.

The Alt News co-founder Mohammad Zubair was arrested by Delhi Police Special Cell Under Sections 153 (Wantonly giving provocation with intent to cause riot-if rioting to be committed-if not committed) and 295A (Outraging reli­gious feelings of any class) of the Indian Penal Code. He was arrested over a 2018 tweet.

The arrest came days after Mohammad Zubair highlighted Nupur Sharma’s derogatory remark against Prophet Mohammed during a TV debate.
