Comedian Kunal Kamra does not seem to back down and stop making derogatory tweets against the Supreme Court of India and to the Chief Justice of India. Contempt of Court motion was moved against the controversial comedian after it made some derogatory tweets against the Supreme Court of India for hearing Arnab Goswami's case during a public holiday and granting him bail.
The Attorney General of India KK Venugopal too had given his consent to move contempt against Kamra. However, Kamra refused to delete the tweets he made against the Supreme Court of India. Interestingly Twitter did not delete the Tweet of Kamra as well. As a result, Twitter was reportedly questioned today by a parliamentary panel for not removing stand-up comic Kunal Kamra's 'offensive tweets'.
Twitter policy head Mahima Kaul was grilled by the Joint Committee on the Personal Data Protection Bill headed by the BJP's Meenakshi Lekhi. Both Ms. Lekhi and Congress leader Vivek Tankha took the lead in questioning Twitter for keeping the posts, said the sources.

ANI quoted BJP MP Meenakshi Lekhi who said, 'On Kunal's tweet, Twitter said that the post cannot be removed unless the court issues such orders.'
Not just pulled up for Kunal Kamra tweet, but Twitter had apologised to Parliamentary panel over misrepresentation of Indian map too. The questioning of Twitter over its alleged bias and inaction against left-wing Twitter handles comes even as Twitter is facing serious trouble in the country for distortion of Indian map by geo-tagging Ladakh as.

'We've asked for an answer in 7 days. Since there are no laws in India regarding these, we have to talk to the top executives of such service providers,' added Lekhi.

Kunal Kamra Twitter On ScBy Manavi Kapur
Culture and lifestyle reporter
A standup comic, an Indian government minister, and the country’s top airlines walk into a bar. Jokes fly.
Ok, not a bar, but that’s par for the course on Twitter after Kunal Kamra, a comedian and vociferous critic of Narendra Modi’s Bharatiya Janata Party, was suspended from flying on most Indian airlines over the past two days. The ban, initiated by IndiGo, came after Kamra posted a video of him confronting television news anchor Arnab Goswami onboard a Mumbai-Lucknow IndiGo flight on Jan. 28.
While IndiGo’s punitive action against Kamra was expected, bans by SpiceJet, GoAir, and national carrier Air India have been viewed as excessive. The civil aviation ministry stepping in to condemn Kamra’s “heckling” of Goswami, who heads the in-your-face, pro-government Republic TV news channel, did nothing to allay concerns of the government’s partisanship.

Satirists quipped that long-dead airlines like Kingfisher would also like a chance at brief revival simply to be able to ban Kamra.
Parody accounts of sundry services on Twitter went on a rampage, almost entirely replicating IndiGo’s first tweet announcing the ban on Kamra.
Here are some of the parody Twitter handles mocking the original.
Kamra, then, was also “suspended” from accessing services like getting a puncture fixed.

The standup comic, who wondered if he was allowed to walk, was next banned from that activity.
Other “associations,” mimicking trade bodies of various industries, chimed in, too.
