Stand-up comic Kunal Kamra wrote a letter to Attorney General K. K. Venugopal on November 13, 2020 in response to contempt charges filed against him for commenting on the Supreme Court’s decision to grant interim bail to TV journalist Arnab Goswami.
On Friday afternoon, Kamra posted the letter on his Twitter and Facebook accounts stating that he had no intention of apologising for his comments despite the criminal contempt proceedings.
The entire letter may be viewed below:
Kamra is known for his socio-political content both during his performances and through social media platforms. His tweets about the SC had insinuated that it was controlled by the BJP-led government. He had also made scathing remarks about Justice DY Chandrachud, a sitting judge of the SC. Kamra’s supporters though seem optimistic about the recent incident, foreseeing a conclusion similar to the Prashant Bhushan case.
