Today, the Delhi High Court questions actor-environmentalist Juhi Chawla for directly filing a suit against setting up 5G wireless networks.
Justice JR Midha said the plaintiffs, Juhi Chawla, and two others, were expected to first request the government for their rights, and if denied, they should come to the court. Juhi Chawla was accused of not following proper protocol.
Juhi Chawla’s plea claimed that 5G wireless technology plans threaten to provoke serious, irreversible effects on humans and permanent damage to the Earth’s ecosystems. The suit, filed by Juhi Chawla, Veeresh Malik, and Teena Vachani, insists that if the telecom industry’s plans for 5G becomes a reality, “no person, animal, bird, insect and plant on Earth will be able to avoid exposure, 24 hours a day, 365 days a year, to levels of RF radiation that are 10x to 100x times greater than what exists today.”
The court after hearing the arguments of various parties reserved its order on the suit.
In a rather hilarious event, the “Delhi High Court’s hearing in Juhi Chawla’s case was interrupted multiple times by a person who kept singing songs from #JuhiChawla’s movies, even after being muted many times.
Bench directed that the person be identified & contempt notice be issued”

Criticism followed her suit because within a week of filing her suit, it was heard by the court and revealed an unfair preferential system.
How come Kalra matter comes up every day, some Juhi Chawla PIL comes up within a week of filing but civil suits are not heard for 10 or 20 years? Such a dysfunctional system.
