Stand-up comic Munawar Faruqui, in jail for "hurting religious sentiments" during a show, will not be released on bail, the Madhya Pradesh High Court ruled today, saying there was no evidence so far that he had not committed the crime. The court also said investigations were on and more incriminating evidence could show up, rejecting the comedian's argument that he had not uttered any comment in the show.
