The Supreme Court today gave bail for five days to fact-checker Mohammed Zubair in a case registered in Sitapur, Uttar Pradesh, over calling three Hindu right-wing leaders "hatemongers"; but he will remain in jail for now as there's no bail yet in a case in Delhi. The Alt News co-founder's plea in the Supreme Court challenges the Allahabad High Court's refusal to quash the Sitapur FIR, which says he hurt religious sentiments with his tweet. What are the standards being adopted to judge hate speech and hate? Are different yardsticks being used for different people and why?
