Petitioner alleged that “Kanhaiya Kumar and his associates are supporting the freedom struggle of terrorist groups who are working on the instigation of Pakistan to destabilize the unity and disturb the peace and tranquility of our country,” and the Central Government did not take any action to terminate Kumar’s Citizenship, despite his raising anti-national slogans.
Court stated that “Valuable time of this Court, which is functioning in its limited strength, during the period of the pandemic, has been wasted by filing the present writ petition. Intention of the petitioner, in our opinion, is not to espouse the interest of the public, but only of his own self, by gaining publicity. Such conduct is highly condemnable.”
and Court directed the Petitioner to pay a fine of Rs. 25,000/- within a period of 30 days.
