- The petitioner had pleaded to approve the Rath Yatra at Jagannanath Puri.
- The court said – there was a matter of pulling the chariot between the fixed points, the risk was estimated
The Supreme Court on Thursday refused to allow a mass procession on Muharram in the country. The bench of Chief Justice SA Bobde said that the corona infection is widespread. At such times, the health of people cannot be endangered.
The court said – If the procession is allowed, there will be uproar
The Supreme Court said that Jagannath Puri's case was different, where the chariot had to be moved from one place to another. In cases with such a fixed space we can issue an order by guessing the danger. However, this order cannot be given in every case. The Chief Justice said that if the Matami procession is allowed, there will be uproar and a particular community will be accused of spreading corona.
'Can go to High Court for permission to procession in Lucknow'
Petition was imposed on Muharram by Sayyid Kalbe Jabbad of Uttar Pradesh for permission to take out the Matami procession. He cited allowing the rath yatra at Jagannath Puri in Odisha. Petitioner sought permission for the Matami procession in Lucknow, as the Shia community is much more prominent there. On this, the court said that in this case you should go to Allahabad High Court.
