New Delhi: A big blow for music composer Vishal Dadlani, Supreme Court has refused to protect him from arrest for making derogatory remarks against Jain monk Tarun Sagar.
The apex court asked Dadlani to approach High Court for quashing of FIR against him. On Monday, Dadlani was booked for allegedly hurting religious sentiments with his sarcastic tweet on Jain monk Tarun Sagar.
Dadlani had stirred a controversy after he mocked the Digambar Jain guru for making a speech in Haryana Assembly, naked. (The monks in Digambara sect of Jainism do not wear clothes, as a symbol of shunning worldly possessions and indifference to earthly emotions.)
Dadlani had tweeted against the Jain leader addressing the Haryana assembly last month. Following widespread criticism, Dadlani apologised and also quit the Aam Aadmi Party.
