SP leader Azam Khan was found not guilty in a hate speech case in 2019


Azam Khan may feel relieved by the verdict, but it won’t help him regain his MLA status because the court of MP/MLA in Moradabad had already sentenced Azam and his son Abdullah Azam Khan to two years in prison in 2008 for attacking a public servant.MEERUT Azam Khan, the head of the Samajwadi Party, was exonerated on Wednesday in a 2019 hate speech case by the MP-MLA sessions court in Rampur, Uttar Pradesh.On October 27, 2022, an MP-MLA magistrate court sentenced Khan, the then-SP MLA from the Rampur Sadar seat, to three years in prison. Khan was then disqualified from serving as an MLA.Khan appealed the decision in the Rampur Sessions Court.

According to Azam’s attorney Zubair Ahmad Khan of the Supreme Court, the court declared his acquittal from the accusations after hearing arguments from both sides.He added in a phone interview with HT that “the court observed that inadmissible evidences were taken into consideration while framing charges against him under Sections 153A and 505 of the IPC, along with Section 125 of the Representation of People Act in an alleged 2019 hate speech case.”Azam Khan was very relieved by the sessions court’s decision, but it won’t help him reinstate his MLA status because Azam Khan and his son Abdullah Azam Khan were sentenced to two years in prison by the MP/MLA special court in Moradabad.
