'Hinduphobic' Library Case : Top Court grants bail to Law Professor

Today, the Supreme Court of India has granted bail to an Indore-based Law Professor of New Government Law College, who was alleged for promoting Hinduphobia and anti-India propaganda.

A division bench of Justice AS Bopanna and Dipankar Datta passed the order granting anticipatory bail to Dr Beg.

It’s been 10 days since the Akhil Bharatiya Vidyarthi Parishad’s protests over the contents of what they claimed was a “Hinduphobic” book in the college library led to faculty suspensions and eventually a police case.

It involved two books written by Dr Farhat Khan titled ‘Collective Violence and Criminal Justice System’ and Women and Criminal Law’.

The State Higher Education Minister had tweeted that Prof Rehman and Assistant Prof Dr Mirza Beg had been suspended with immediate effect. A first information report (FIR) was registered on the basis of a complaint by an LL.M. student at the college who had links to the ABVP.

Later, Dr Beg approached the Supreme Court in February after the Madhya Pradesh High Court rejected his anticipatory bail application.

He denied all the charges against him, stating that the book was bought by the college in 2014, way before he joined on a contractual basis.

He also informed the Court that the book had been a part of the Master's curriculum for more than 18 years and was taught to all post-graduates specializing in criminal law across Madhya Pradesh.
