SC refuses to quash FIRs against Amish Devgan for remarks on Sufi saint

The Supreme Court on Monday declined journalist Amish Devgan’s plea to quash first information reports (FIRs) filed against him for his alleged derogatory remarks against Sufi saint Moinuddin Chishti. Seven FIRs have been registered against the television journalist in Rajasthan, Madhya Pradesh, Uttar Pradesh, and Telangana when he described the Sufi saint as “attacker” and “lootera” (robber) during a debate he hosted on his show ‘Aar Par’ on June 15. The show was debating public interest litigations (PILs) regarding the Place of Worship Special Provision Act.
