Prashant Bhushan Declined to Apologise to Supreme Court

Prashant Bhushan Supreme Court case

In the contempt of court case, senior advocate Prashant Bhushan refused to apologize to the Supreme Court and said that it was his view and he stood by it. Advocate Prashant Bhushan, who was found guilty of contempt for his tweet against the judges, has filed his reply in the Supreme Court.

Prashant Bhushan said, ‘My statement was goodwill. If I withdraw my statement before this court, I believe that if I offer an honest apology, then I would be in contempt for my conscience and the institution in which I hold supreme faith. ‘

The Supreme Court dismissed the plea of ​​Prashant Bhushan in which he had appealed to send the nature of the sentence in this case to another bench. A bench headed by Justice Arun Mishra told senior advocate Dushyant Dave, appearing for the court on behalf of Prashant Bhushan, that no action is taken against him until a decision is reached on a reconsideration petition to convict him in the case. This means that the punishment given to them will not be applicable.

Prashant Bhushan told the Supreme Court that he was pained that he was ‘greatly misunderstood’ in the case. He said ‘I have tried to discharge my ultimate duty through tweet’. Quoting Mahatma Gandhi, Prashant Bhushan had said, ‘I do not beg for mercy nor do I appeal to you for generosity.
