In keeping with the IndiaFacts credo of reintroducing decency in public discourse, we ran a Fact Check on Sagarika Ghose’s tweet that called the Supreme Court judge–who delivered the Section 377 verdict–a crackpot. As with other IndiaFacts Fact Meters, this one, too was well-researched and cited several legal precedents to arrive at the conclusion that Sagarika Ghose’s tweet maybe liable for contempt of court.
In the wake of our Fact check, Sagarika Ghose tweeted an apology for calling the judge a crackpot.
Just to refresh: here is the original “crackpot” tweet.
And here is her apology tweet.
