Ratan Lal, a history professor with Delhi University's Hindu College who was arrested last night over a social media post that appeared to question claims of a 'Shivling' found inside Varanasi's Gyanvapi mosque complex, has been granted bail. Calling the post a failed attempt at satire, the court said, "The feeling of hurt felt by an individual cannot represent the entire group or community and any such complaint regarding hurt feelings has to be seen in its context considering the entire spectrum of facts/circumstances." This arrest once more raises the question - is there any space left for Freedom of Speech?
