Chandrashekhar Azad

New Delhi, Jan 17 : Hours after being released from Tihar Jail, Bhim Army Chief Chandrashekar Azad visited the historic Jama Masjid on Friday where he stayed for close to 40 minutes.

Swarmed by his supporters and locals, Azad, with his trademark blue ‘safaa’, read out the Preamble to the Constitution.

Calling for repeal of the Citizenship Amendment Act, which he termed as a “black act”, he said nothing is bigger than keeping the country together.

Before visiting Jama Masjid, he paid obeisance at Bhagwan Valmiki Mandir near Gole Market and also visited Gurudwara Bangla Sahib.

Thirty-three year old Azad was released from Tihar Jail on bail on Thursday night and received a rousing welcome by his supporters.

At Jama Masjid in old Delhi, where anti-Citizenship Amendment Act protest was taking place, Azad also lauded women participating in the anti-CAA protests at Shaheen Bagh, Jamia Millia Islamia and other parts of the country.

“This (anti CAA) movement is for the future of this country, for our identity and to uphold the Constitution. It is our responsibility to strengthen it,” he said.

Azad said it is the fundamental duty of citizens to protect the Constitution and also urged people to carry out peaceful protests against the CAA.

He also visited the Karbala at Jor Bagh.

A Delhi court Wednesday had granted bail to Azad who has been accused of inciting people during an anti-CAA protest at Jama Masjid here on December 20, while restraining him from visiting Delhi for four weeks.

The court further directed him not to hold any dharna in the national capital till the elections here and said that “the nation cannot be exposed to anarchy”.

The court also said that before going to Saharanpur if Azad wants to go anywhere, including Jama Masjid in Delhi in 24 hours, police will escort him there.

New Delhi, Feb 18 : The Delhi High Court on Tuesday dismissed a petition seeking rectification of errors in Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) Class 12 accountancy sample question papers and imposed a fine of Rs 25,000 on the petitioner.

The petitioner, named Ravinder Nath dubey, has been teaching accountancy for the past 26 years.

Asserting that accountancy examination is on March 3, the petitioner sought court’s direction to immediately remove eight fundamentally and conceptually wrong answers from the CBSE’s website.

“If the students write these wrong answers in the board examinations, the examiners may deduct 7-8 marks of students,” Dubey rued.

A bench of Chief Justice D.N. Patel and Justice C. Hari Shankar called the petition “frivolous” and imposed a hefty fine on him.

“You are not talking about an exam paper but sample papers. The model papers are for students’ practice,” the bench said.

When the petitioner retorted that he has come with a proof, the court said, “The fine can be increased. I don’t want to do it.”
