Supreme Court stays criminal proceedings against BJP leader Annamalai


The Supreme Court on Monday stayed the criminal proceedings filed against Tamil Nadu Bharatiya Janata Party State President K Annamalai accusing him of hate speech.  A complaint was filed against him accusing him of hate speech for his remark that a Christian missionary NGO was behind a petition filed in the Supreme Court seeking a ban on the bursting of crackers during Deepavali.

A bench headed by Justice Sanjiv Khanna passed interim orders and issued notice to Salem based activist V.Piyush who filed the complaint against Annamalai.
Annamalai filed the petition in the Supreme Court after the Madras High Court refused to quash the criminal trial pending before the Magistrate court in Salem.
After granting interim stay and ordering notice, the court posted the case on April 29th, 2024.
