The Indian Supreme Court has ruled that it can’t state any moral guidelines on Sardar jokes. The Supreme Court stated that it would be “impossible” to enforce guidelines and hold people accountable.
“Sikhs are a highly respected community but you’re bringing it down by fighting litigation to ban these jokes,” said the court while hearing a petition filed by lawyer Harvinder Choudhary.
“Even if we issue guidelines who will control it,” the court said. If the jokes are a “societal or psychological phenomenon” then the matter lies in the domain of the legislature, it said.
