Aurangabad. The Aurangabad Bench of the Bombay High Court on Thursday commented on the people agitating peacefully against the CAA that they cannot be called traitors and traitors just because they want to oppose a law. The bench said this while hearing a petition against the CAA for not allowing the police to agitate.
The Bench said, such a movement does not raise any question of violation of the provisions of the CAA. The court is expected to consider the right of such individuals to start the movement in a peaceful manner. The bench said that because they want to oppose a law, they cannot be called traitors and traitors only. This would be just one protest against the government because of the CAA.
The bench quashed two orders given by the Additional District Magistrate (ADM) of Beed district and the Majalgaon City Police. The police cited the ADM order as the basis for refusing permission to protest. The bench said, India got independence due to the movements which were non-violent and this path of non-violence is adopted by the people of this country till date. We are fortunate that most of the people of this country still believe in non-violence.
The bench said, in this case also the petitioners and their partners want to protest peacefully to register their protest. The bench further said that in the British era, our ancestors had also fought for freedom and human rights, and it was from the philosophy behind the movement that we made our constitution. It can be said that this is unfortunate but people can agitate against their own government and their agitation cannot be suppressed only on this basis.
ADM order cites Beed's Superintendent of Police report Was The report said that the law and order situation deteriorates due to the movements caused by various reasons. Petitioner Iftekhar Zaki Sheikh was refused permission to stage a peaceful protest against the CAA and NRC at the old Idgah ground in Majalgaon. The order of the ADM and denial of permission by the police was challenged by Sheikh through a petition.
