Arundhati Roy Faces High Court Heat for ‘Anti-National’ Remark.

Must read

A petition has been filed in the Calcutta High Court against author Arundhati Roy, accusing her of making “anti-national remarks” during an interview with an international TV channel.

During the hearing on Monday, the High Court issued orders to serve fresh notices to all parties involved.

The petitioner claimed that Roy, in a social media post on X (formerly Twitter), referred to India as a ‘Hindu fascist enterprise,’ and actor Prakash Raj’s retweet made him a party in the case.

Mita Banerjee, the petitioner, argued that Roy’s post was “regrettable” as it came from an Indian citizen. Banerjee also alleged that the media outlet where Roy gave the interview was linked to Al-Qaeda leader Osama bin Laden.

Banerjee emphasized in court that Roy, with a substantial following, spoke against India, a country she described as “among the select few secular countries worldwide.”

During the hearing, Banerjee asserted that Hindus, contrary to being labeled as fascists, follow the principle of “Dharma Rakshite Rakshita,” protecting their religion, and being protected by it.
