Taking up its second contempt notice against Hashmi today, the apex court dismissed his response as unsatisfactory and decided to indict him.
Talking to the media outside the apex court, Hashmi claimed he never uttered any words against the judges and judiciary.
“That clip showed the language of inmates,” he said, referring to his controversial speech after his release from jail last month.
The disqualified senator asserted that it is his legal and constitutional right that his apology be accepted, adding that he should not be victimised politically.
“I hope the court will think about my apology,” he said further.
