The Supreme Court on Friday (February 1) stayed the arrest of eminent scholar and sociologist Ashis Nandy for making remarks alleged to be anti-Dalit at the Jaipur Literature Festival (JLF). Though the bench stayed his arrest, it said "he can't continue making statements like this. Whatever may be your intent you can't go on making statements." "Tell your client he has no license to make such comments," the bench told senior advocate Aman Lekhi who was appearing for 76-year-old Nandy.
