Supreme Court Intervention in Shaheen Bagh
The Supreme Court appointed interlocutors Sanjay Hegde and Sadhana Ramachandran reached Shaheen Bagh on Wednesday to persuade protestors to end their blockade of a public road.
It asked senior advocate Sanjay Hegde and advocate Sadhana Ramachandran to talk to Shaheen Bagh protestors and persuade them to move to an alternative site where no public place is blocked. People have a fundamental right to protest but the thing which is troubling us is blocking of public roads, the bench said.
WHAT SUPREME COURT SAYS
- The apex court took suo motu cognisance of death of an infant at home after parents had participated in Shaheen Bagh protests. Can a 4-month-old child be taking part in such protests, the Supreme Court asked today.
- There is a law and people have grievance against it. The matter is pending in court. Despite that some people are protesting. They are entitled to protest.
- You cannot block the public roads. There cannot be indefinite period of protest in such an area. If you want to protest, it has to be in an area identified for protest.
- The apex court further said that the protest at Shaheen Bagh has been going on for long but it cannot create inconvenience for others.
While interacting with anti-CAA protesters in ShaheenBagh, Ramachandran said his right to protest should not affect the right of others to use public roads and services.
“The Supreme Court has said that you have the right to protest. The law (CAA) has been challenged in the Supreme Court. But like us, others also have their rights, such as the right to use roads, open their stores, arriving students their schools. Their right to protest should not affect the right of others to use these services, “Ramachandran said in ShaheenBagh.
Wajahat Habibullah, a former bureaucrat who was also appointed by the Supreme Court to collaborate with the protesters, said he will meet with the other interlocutors
