NEW DELHI: Janata Party president Subramanian Swamy was on Friday granted interim protection by the Delhi High Court against his possible arrest for writing an allegedly ‘inflammatory’ piece in a daily.

Justice M L Mehta granted interim protection to Swamy on an undertaking given by him that he would not write such articles in future and issued notice to the Delhi police for its reply on Swamy’s anticipatory bail petition.

Justice Mehta remarked, “We are a secular country and we should respect the system which we have inherited.” He further said, “It is not a European country like Britain. We have a diversity and we should be proud of it.”

“If you (Swamy) give an undertaking that you will not write anything based on the book, I’ll grant you the relief,” Justice Mehta stated. The judge’s remarks came after senior advocate K T S Tulsi, appearing for Swamy, alleged that the present case had been foisted against Swamy as he had exposed the 2G scam.
