Supreme Court Requests the Creation of an Immediate Committee to Address Cases of Hate Speech

<p>The Supreme Court took an important step on Friday by recommending the Central Government to create a special committee charged with looking into cases of hate speech in an effort to promote unity and understanding among varied populations. In response to a petition emphasizing “blatant hate speeches” that have sparked threats of violence and highlighted the social and economic exclusion of a certain minority during demonstrations across many states, the supreme court took a proactive position. Tragically, the recent communal fighting in Haryana, which resulted in six fatalities, highlighted how urgent it is to solve this problem.<img decoding=”async” class=”alignnone wp-image-123707″ src=”https://www.theindiaprint.com/wp-content/uploads/2023/08/theindiaprint.com-supreme-court-requests-the-creation-of-an-immediate-committee-to-address-cases-of-hate-speech-download-2023-08-11t162050.337.jpg” alt=”theindiaprint.com supreme court requests the creation of an immediate committee to address cases of hate speech download 2023 08 11t162050.337″ width=”1492″ height=”993″ srcset=”https://www.theindiaprint.com/wp-content/uploads/2023/08/theindiaprint.com-supreme-court-requests-the-creation-of-an-immediate-committee-to-address-cases-of-hate-speech-download-2023-08-11t162050.337.jpg 275w, https://www.theindiaprint.com/wp-content/uploads/2023/08/theindiaprint.com-supreme-court-requests-the-creation-of-an-immediate-committee-to-address-cases-of-hate-speech-download-2023-08-11t162050.337-150×100.jpg 150w” sizes=”(max-width: 1492px) 100vw, 1492px” title=”Supreme Court Requests the Creation of an Immediate Committee to Address Cases of Hate Speech 12″></p>
<p>According to PTI, a bench made up of Justices Sanjiv Khanna and SVN Bhatti ordered Additional Solicitor General K M Nataraj, speaking on behalf of the Centre, to expedite the committee’s creation and furnish important material by August 18.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>The bench highlighted, “Harmony and comity between communities are vital,” echoing the necessity for community cohesion and respect. Each community has a duty to defend these principles. Everyone should condemn hate speech because it is harmful.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>The petitioner, journalist Shaheen Abdullah, has been instructed to gather and present thorough evidence, including recordings, to the appointed nodal authorities in accordance with the court’s judgment from October 21, 2022. Specifically stating, “We hope and trust that the state governments and police will ensure that no hate speeches irrespective of the identity are made against any community and that there is no physical violence or damage to the properties,” the Supreme Court’s August 2 order is cited by the journalist in support of his or her application.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>The Supreme Court emphasized its dedication to upholding peace by affirming that, where necessary, sufficient police or paramilitary personnel would be deployed, supported by the vigilant use of CCTV cameras and video recording in sensitive areas. Recognizing the toxic impact of hate speeches on societal harmony, the Supreme Court stressed its commitment to upholding peace.</p>
