Shaheen Bagh Protests: SC declines the petitioner’s prayer, says protesters can’t block roads

The Supreme Court on Monday said the anti-CAA protesters can’t block roads indefinitely at Shaheen Bagh. The court further said that the people are entitled to protest but should do so in an area designated for agitation and not cause inconvenience to others.

“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,” a bench comprising justices S K Kaul and K M Joseph said.

The bench said it would not pass any direction without hearing the other side. It issued notice to Centre, Delhi Government and police, the court posted the matter for hearing next on February 17.

The Supreme Court declines the petitioner’s prayer, seeking interim directions. Issuing a notice to the Centre, the court adjourned the matter for February 17.

The Shaheen Bagh protest is an ongoing 24/7 sit-in peaceful protest, led by women, that began with the passage of the Citizenship Act in both houses of Parliament on 11 December 2019 and the ensuing police intervention against students at Jamia Millia Islamia who were opposing the Amendment.

ShaheenBagh has been the centre of indefinite sit-in protests against CAA & NRC.

  7. Today, I went to the beachfront with my children. I found a sea shell and gave it to my 4 year old daughter and said “You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear.” She placed the shell to her ear and screamed.
