In a respite for Bollywood star Amitabh Bachchan, the Allahabad High Court Monday dismissed a petition accusing him of making derogatory remarks "with malicious intention" on the Holy Quran during a 2011 telecast of quiz show "Kaun Banega Crorepati" on Sony TV.

Dismissing the petition filed by Mudassir Ullah Khan, a Hansi resident, Justice Manoj Mishra said the objection to the word "written" as used by Bachchan does not necessarily mean that it was written by some person.

Khan, in his petition, contended that Bachchan's use of the word 'racha gaya' (written) for Quran during the fifth edition of KBC was an insult to the Muslims as the religious book was not written and was revealed by Allah (god) Himself.

Justice Mishra opined that, "To say 'racha gaya' does not necessarily imply that the Quran was written by some person, it can also imply that the holy book was composed by Allah Himself, which is another way of saying that it is a revealed scripture."

    Which asshole is so jobless, man!! Just because he said that a book is 'written', it becomes a derogatory remark with "malicious intent"? Ofcourse its written, and its written by man and not by any god - all religious books are written by MAN..Now hang me, worthless apes.

    Why waste time on these trivial matters he should be prosecuted for his role in the 1984 murder of Sikhs after the Indra Gandhi assassination.
