Shaheen Bagh: Supreme court rejects plea says protest can’t be done anywhere and anytime

New Delhi, 13/2 (AO Bureau): The Supreme Court has dismissed the reconsideration petition in the Shaheen Bagh case. The Supreme Court has upheld the Shaheen Bagh judgment given in the month of October last year. The Supreme Court has said that people cannot stage demonstrations at their own will anywhere else. The sit-in demonstration is part of Democracy but has a limit.

Last year, the Supreme Court ruled that there should be a place marked for the dharna demonstration. If any person or group performs a sit-in protest out of it, according to the rules, the police have the right to remove them. The demonstration should not affect the common people. Public space cannot be occupied for dharna.

In this decision, the Supreme Court had termed the CAA Protest of Shaheen Bagh as illegal. This decision was challenged in the Supreme Court for reconsideration. Now the Supreme Court has dismissed the review petition. The bench of three judges SK Call, Anirudh Bose and Krishna Murari dismissed the petition.
