Supreme Court Rejects Lawyer’s Request To Take Action Against Comedian For ‘Humiliating the Judicial System’ because ‘There Are Better Things To Do’

On Monday, the Supreme Court refused to hear a petition lodged by an Advocate against stand-up comedian Anubhav Singh Bassi, alleging that he degraded ‘advocates and the judicial system’ in his Bas Kar Bassi special.

A bench composed of Justices SK Kaul and Sudhanshu Dhulia was dissatisfied that an attorney filed such a frivolous petition. Regarding this, Justice Kaul remarked, 

I think there are better things for you people to do than this“.

The judge said in person to the petitioner, “What is this writ petition under Article 32? Both of us (bench) could not understand what you want.

He added, “Should come up in a better matter…As the Bench was not inclined to issue notice, the in-person petitioner implored the Bench to grant her an audience before rendering a decision. She acquiesced,”I came across a video on YouTube called Bas Kar Bassi. I saw the respondent Anubhav Bassi has humiliated advocates, the judicial system…

Justice Kaul chimed in, stating, “There are other people to take care of it, you worry about yourself.

The Court dismissed the Public Interest Litigation and stated in its order, “We will not entertain the petition under Article 32 of the Constitution of India. Dismissed.
