The Supreme Court will hear the petition against the Citizenship Amendment Act (CAA) in Shaheen Bagh on December 15 last year demanding that the Center and others be directed to remove the protesters sitting on the dharna. The apex court had filed a petition asking the central government to remove the protesters who were protesting in the Shaheen Bagh.
Protesters have been demanding the withdrawal of CAA for more than two months in Delhi’s Shaheen Bagh. During the last hearing on Shaheen Bagh, the Supreme Court said that no public place could be staged indefinitely. Even then there was no order to clear the road. The next hearing of the matter was set for January 17.
Then a bench of Justices SK Kaul and Justice M Joseph had said that there is a law and people have a complaint against him. The case has been adjourned to court. Despite this, some people are protesting. They have the right to protest but you cannot block the roads. Such areas may not have periodic tours for an indefinite period of time. If you want to have a demonstration, it must be at the destination for the demonstration.
The apex court had said that the demonstration has been going on in Shaheen Bagh for a long time but it should not be an inconvenience to others.
The bench also said that it would not issue any instruction without listening to the other party. The court then fixed the next hearing on February 17.
