The Supreme Court on Friday stayed the criminal proceedings in a case against MS Dhoni where he was allegedly portrayed as the Lord Vishnu on a cover page of a business magazine.
 
A non-bailable warrant was issued against India’s ODI skipper on January 9 by a court in Anantapur in connection with him not appearing in the court.
 
The 34-year-old was asked to be present in court on February 25.
 
Dhoni courted controversy after appearing in an advertisement on the cover Business Today as Lord Vishnu holding a number of things.
The ad prompted social activist Jayakumar Hiremath to file a case to register a complaint against him, with a case being registered against him under section 295 and 34 of the Indian Penal Code (IPC).
 
In reply, the High Court had said, “These celebrities are only signing ads without any responsibility. Their aim is to earn easy money without considering the problems it may create.”
 
Taking cognizance of the complaint filed by Hiremath, the Additional Chief Metropolitan Magistrate (ACMM) had registered a case against Dhoni under section 295 (injuring or defiling place of worship with intent to insult the religion of any class) along with 34 of the IPC.
 
Later, the ACMM had issued summons to Dhoni to appear before the court, which he did not and instead moved to High Court.
