If These Are Your Views, Then Why Are You Before Us? Delhi High Court ,in the case of Abhijit Iyer Mitra

After he retweeted a tweet that referred to the Indian judiciary as “biassed, unaccountable, and self-serving,” the Delhi High Court on Tuesday questioned whether it should “turn a somersault” to order the restoration of journalist and writer Abhijit Iyer-Mitra Twitter account [Abhijit Iyer Mitra v. Twitter Communications India Pvt Ltd & Anr].

Justice Prateek Jalan stated that he is at ease with the idea that people have this opinion of the judiciary and that he is aware that many people share it.

The Court was considering Iyer-Mitra’s lawsuit for access to his Twitter account, which was blocked after he tweeted that Mohammed Zubair, the co-founder of Alt News, had been granted bail by the Supreme Court.
