The petition was filed by a lawyer named Dipak Diwan against Aamir Khan for his ‘growing intolerance’ remark. He had alleged that the actor’s insensitive comment had led to a feeling of hate amongst various religions, birth etc. (Sections 153-A and 153-B of the Indian Penal Code). FYI, Khan had made the statement after the Dadri lynching case wherein a Muslin man was killed for suspicion of slaughtering a cow.
Lastly, the bench also added, “I do not find any merit in the instant petition. It deserves to be and is accordingly dismissed, being substanceless and meritless as well.” Stay tuned!
