HC judge refuses from hearing Setalvad's plea in a tweet case

Nov 21:A Gujarat High Court judge today refused himself from hearing activist Teesta Setalvad's petition seeking quashing of an FIR registered against her by Ahmedabad police in 2014 for uploading "objectionable" pictures of Hindu deities on a popular social networking site.
Justice J B Pardiwala today refused himself from hearing the plea filed by Setalvad in July 2015.
"Not before me," Pardiwala said when the matter came up for hearing before him.
The FIR had been registered against Setalvad in Ghatlodia police station in Ahmedabad in August 2014, based on a complaint by a Vishwa Hindu Parishad (VHP) activist, Raju Patel, who alleged that she hurt religious sentiments by uploading "objectionable" pictures of Hindu deities on Twitter.
Setalvad has been charged with IPC sections 153(a) (promoting enmity between two religious groups) and section 205(a) (outraging religious feelings), besides sections of the IT Act.
In September last year, the court had issued notices to the respondents- Gujarat government and Raju Patel, who had filed the complaint. However, the matter had not been heard since then. Agencies
