Sudarshan News chief editor says they have not received Delhi HC order staying ‘UPSC Jihad’ program, will be aired as per schedule

Though it is clear that the order passed by the Delhi HC was ex-parte order, so no representative of Sudarshan News were present in the hearing. However, it is not known whether the channel has been sent the order or not, as the copy of the HC judgment posted by media houses does not mention this.

Despite the Delhi HC putting a stay on the broadcast, Sudarshan News chief editor Suresh Chavhanke has taken to Twitter to inform that the channel will be sticking to the schedule and the said program on UPSC Jihad will be aired at 8 pm today.

He said that though people have been posting on social media that the Delhi HC has stayed the program on Sudarshan News that was scheduled to be aired at 8 PM today, the channel has not officially received any such order from the HC, therefore the show will be broadcasted tonight at 8 pm as per scheduled.

He added that if they receive the order by 8 PM, they will read the order and tell their side of the story.

The order passed by the Delhi HC was ex-parte order, which means no representatives of Sudarshan News were present in the hearing. Therefore, it is not known whether the channel has been sent the order officially or not, as the copy of the HC judgment posted by media houses does not mention this.

It may be noted that the order asks the petitioners to send copies of the notice to the channel. It also mentioned that the order will be sent to advocates of the parties on their e-mail addresses. But no advocate from the channel is listed in the order, hence it is unclear if the order has been sent by the High Court to Sudarshan News or their lawyers.

Earlier, the Delhi High Court had stayed a program on Sudarshan News that was scheduled to be aired at 8 PM today, on a petition filed by Jamia Millia Islamia students. It has been alleged that the program may incite hatred against Muslims, as it alleges conspiracy to induct more Muslims in the civil and police services through UPSC examinations.

The stay order stopping the broadcast of the show was passed by Justice Navin Chavla after an urgent hearing. The petition was filed by advocate Shadan Farasat on behalf of current and former students of Jamia.

The controversy erupted yesterday after Sudarshan News chief editor Suresh Chavhanke shared a snippet of its upcoming program scheduled to be aired tonight at 8 PM. After the controversial video was posted, it attacked criticism from various sides, notably from left-liberals and Islamists. It was alleged that Suresh Chavhanke is spreading hate against Muslims, and leftist portals started publishing articles criticising him and his channel. Soon, Muslim activists started filing cases against the editor and the channel at various places across the country.
