Social media has been flooded with tweets and memes after the Supreme Court granted interim bail to Republic TV editor-in-chief Arnab Goswami on a bond of Rs 50,000 in a 2018 abetment to suicide case.
While his supporters celebrated, some like Supreme Court Bar Association (SCBA) president Dushyant Dave questioned the apex court’s “urgent” listing of Goswami’s petition before the two-judge bench on Wednesday.
Here are some pro-Arnab tweets with #ArnabIsBack:
#ArnabIsBack | Republic Media Network is grateful to the Honourable Supreme Court of India for its order today that granted bail to our Editor-in-Chief Arnab Goswami. We are also deeply thankful & ever-indebted to Senior Advocate Harish Salve and the entire team at Phoenix Legal pic.twitter.com/5qqUMdru8Z

Some journalists brought up the question of bail for political prisoners, students and journalists.
Stan Swamy, Varavara Rao…. Parkinson’s, Dementia…. If it pleases your Lordships, please pay attention here too.

Justice Chandrachud making a strong case for liberty, and it is long overdue that the Supreme Court lay down the law when it comes to personal freedom. However, the principles outlined today must apply across the board to everyone. Bail should be the norm, jail the exception. https://t.co/NJcWrmkP70

Justice has been served.
Now Arnab can go back to being a Judge on TV who doesnt care about the law.
