The court of Justice Vipul Pancholi granted a stay on Mevani’s arrest for two days in relation to an FIR accusing him of “defaming a school by tweeting a fake video” in May. The court is expected to hear the matter next on Monday.
Mevani said that caste as a phenomenon remains an “elephant in the room”, which nobody wishes to address. “The phenomenon of caste has distorted life in India. Yet, unfortunately, we as a nation are not ashamed."
