The Ranchi Court, which had ordered Richa Bharti to distribute 5 copies of the Quran as a condition for bail, has been forced to take back its ridiculous judgment. The investigating officer in the case formally requested that the condition for donating the Quran be done away with due to “difficulties in its application”. The state government, too, requested that the bail order be modified to that effect.
The controversial order of the judge had attracted the wrath of the public at large. There was huge angst among people and demands for the judge’s sacking were also raised. People had donated a large amount of money to pay for Richa Bharti’s legal fees as well.
Richa Bharti, too, had raised a strong objection to the Ranchi Court ordering her to distribute copies of the Quran. She had said that the Courts never ask Muslim perpetrators to do Ramayan or Durga paath, and soon, she might be asked to convert to Islam.
