A Delhi court has rejected the bail plea of ​​Sharjeel Imam, accused of making inflammatory speeches during the ongoing agitation against the Citizenship Amendment Act. Not only this, while rejecting the bail application of JNU student, the court also mentioned the views of Swami Vivekananda. Referring to Vivekananda, the court said, ‘We are what our thoughts make us. So be mindful of what you are thinking. The words are not very important, but the thoughts stay alive. They make more impact and go far.

Additional Sessions Judge Anuj Aggarwal of Saket Court said regarding the speech of Sharjeel Imam that it is clear from the speech of 13 December 2019 that there were communal and divisive thoughts in it. I think the language and intention of the speech could have disturbed the peace and harmony in the society. Judge Anuj Aggarwal said that there was a danger of disturbing the peace and harmony with whose language was used in the speech. In this situation, I cannot allow his bail application. Along with this, he said that the accused cannot talk of equality with other co-accused as his role was completely different from that of other people.
