Standup Comedian Munawar Faruqui Released from Jail


Standup comedian Munawar Faruqui was released from the Central Jail late on Saturday. Faruqui was accused of making objectionable comments on Hindu deities. He was granted interim bail on Friday by the Supreme Court after Bell’s plea from the lower courts was rejected.

When reporters asked Munawar Faruqui after his release from jail, he replied that “the matter is sub judice and I have full faith in the administration of justice, so I would not like to comment on it.” Faruqui was speaking only what his lawyer had told him. After his release, he left for Mumbai.

The Central Jail Administration of Bhopal refused to release Faruqui, citing a production warrant issued from a court in Prayagraj district of UP. The FIR filed against Faruqui in Indore on January 1 was accused of hurting religious sentiments. Faruqui’s lawyers completed the formalities by presenting an order of the Supreme Court on Saturday in the district court of Indore.

Former Home Minister and Congress leader P Chidambaram had questioned not to release Faruqui. He had tweeted and said that the Supreme Court had passed the order of interim bail on Friday morning, but Faruqui could not get release yet. Faruqui could not come out even after 30 hours had passed. The MP police and the jail administration are trying to demean the order of the Supreme Court.
