Delhi,

06:

Delhi
court
will
hear
further
arguments
on
August

on
a
plea
seeking
permanent

against

for
allegedly
depicting
a
Hindu
deity
in
an
objectionable

in
a

and
promo

On
Saturday,
petitioner
advocate
Raj
Gaurav
also
filed
an
application
for
taking
additional
documents
on
record.

”The
plaintiff
seeks
to
file
additional
documents
which
are
tweets
that
are
directly
related
to
the
case
of
the
plaintiff
and
which
may
affect
the
merits
of
the
case,” the
application
said.

'My Kaali is queer, free spirit that spits on patriarchy,’ says filmmaker Leena Manimekalai‘My
Kaali
is
queer,
free
spirit
that
spits
on
patriarchy,’
says
filmmaker
Leena
Manimekalai

It
said
the
petitioner
could
not
submit
these
documents
at
the
time
of
filing
the
suit
as
the
filmmaker
made
these
tweets
later
on.
The
screenshots
include
one
tweet
dated
July
7
and
two
tweets
dated
July
21.

Earlier
on
July
11,
Additional
Senior
Civil
Judge
Abhishek
Kumar
had
issued
summons
of
the
suit
and
notice
of
the
injunction
and
said
the
filmmaker
needs
to
be
heard
before
any
order
was
passed.

The
poster
of
the
film,
which
was
tweeted
by
the
filmmaker,
depicted
Hindu
Goddess
Kali
smoking
a
cigarette,
which
not
only
hurt
the
religious
sentiments
of
Hindus
but
was
also
against
the
basics
of
morality
and
decency,
the
plea
filed
by
the
advocate
said.
