Supreme Court Pauses Bengal Ban On ‘The Kerala Story’, Orders Disclaimer
The West Bengal government’s ban on the movie ‘The Kerala Story’ was paused on Thursday by the Supreme Court, which also asked the makers to ensure that the film carries a disclaimer stating that it is a fictionalised account of events and there is no data to back its claim that 32,000 women in Kerala were forced to convert to Islam and join ISIS.
Judges led by Chief Justice DY Chandrachud said the state government has to maintain law and order as the film has been granted certification by the Central Board of Film Certification (CBFC).
“Prima facie we are of the view that the prohibition by West Bengal is not tenable on the basis of material before. Thus, the order banning the film is stayed,” the court ordered.
The disclaimer, which must be added by 5 pm on Saturday, should say that “there is no authenticated data to back up the suggestion on the figure of conversion and the film represents the fictionalised version”, the court said.

Supreme Court Panel’s Clean Chit To Adani Group: Prima Facie No Violation
The Supreme Court panel of domain experts has said there was no price manipulation on the part of the Adani Group and the conglomerate had taken necessary steps to comfort retail investors.
A Supreme Court-appointed panel of experts examining India’s regulatory mechanism in an investigation linked to the Hindenburg allegations has given a clean chit to the Adani Group and has said it appears there was no regulatory failure on the part of market regulator SEBI.
The experts’ committee comprising domain experts has also said there was no price manipulation on the part of the Adani Group and that the conglomerate had taken necessary steps to comfort retail investors. The mitigating measures taken by the group had helped in building confidence in the stock and the stocks are stable now, the panel said.
“At this stage, taking into account the explanations provided by SEBI, supported by empirical data, prima facie, it would not be possible for the committee to conclude that there has been a regulatory failure around the allegation of price manipulation,” the panel said in the report submitted to the Supreme Court.
