SC’s Fitting Reply to Plea Seeking to Send Indian Muslims to Pak

The Supreme Court on Friday, 15 March, dismissed a petition seeking to send Indian Muslims to Pakistan, reported Bar and Bench.

A two judge bench, comprising of Justices Rohiton Nariman and Vineet Saran, hearing the matter, reportedly asked the petitioner’s counsel:

“Do you seriously want to argue this? We will hear you but we will pass strictures against you.”

When the lawyer replied in negative, the SC Bench simply said ‘dismissed.’

Earlier in December 2018, Justice SR Sen of the Meghalaya High Court kicked a controversy when he said that “India should have become a Hindu country after Partition.”

“Therefore, I request our beloved prime minister, home minister, law minister and hon’ble members of the Parliament to bring a law to allow the Hindus, Sikhs, Jains, Buddhist, Parsis, Christians, Khasis, Jaintias and Garos who have come from Pakistan, Bangladesh and Afghanistan to live in this country peacefully and with full dignity without making any cut off year and be given citizenship without any question or production of any documents. Similar principle should be taken to those who live in Pakistan, Bangladesh and Afghanistan. They may be allowed to come at any point of time to settle in India and Government may provide rehabilitation properly and declare them citizens of India.”

Later in February 2018, the apex court bench comprising Chief Justice Ranjan Gogoi and Justice Sanjiv Khanna issued notice to the Meghalaya High Court registrar on a petition which sought the remarks be expunged, The Indian Express reported.
