Cen­tre back­tracks in the SC in Swamy hate speech case

Hindustan Times ST (Mumbai) - HT Navi Mumbai Live - - FRONT PAGE -

NEW DELHI: Weeks af­ter it sup­ported se­nior BJP leader Subra­ma­nian Swamy’s pros­e­cu­tion over hate speech against Mus­lims in his book on ter­ror­ism, the Cen­tre has made a U-turn on the is­sue be­fore the SC. In a fresh af­fi­davit, the home min­istry has told the SC that its ear­lier sub­mis­sion was not a com­ment on the crim­i­nal case pend­ing against him but merely a state­ment of fact about his pros­e­cu­tion.
