‘One community will be targeted’: SC’s no to Muharram processions

Aug 27, 2020 15:38 IST

Remarking that ‘one particular community will be targeted’ for spreading the coronavirus, the Supreme Court on Thursday refused permission for Muharram processions in the country. Noting that the mourning processions would lead to chaos, Chief Justice SA Bobde told the petitioner lawyer that the Puri Jagannath Rath Yatra was at one place and had one set route. The Supreme Court was hearing a petition by Syed Kalbe Jawad from Uttar Pradesh, who wanted permission for Muharram processions on Saturday and Sunday across the country. The petition cited the court permitting the Rath Yatra festival.
