Supreme Court Speeches Haridwar Dharam Sansad

Supreme Court issues notice to the Uttarakhand government and others on a plea for taking action in connection with the alleged hate speeches made in Haridwar Dharam Sansad against the Muslim community.

Sr Adv Kapil Sibal: I have filed translations. I dont want to sensationalise anything

CJI: We are issuing notice to concerned state government and then let us take it up

Sr Adv Indira Jaising appear for an intervenor: the guidelines laid down by this court has not been followed

CJI: We are only issuing notice now

Sibal: these dharam sansads are being organised frequently. another one is in aligarh on Jan 24. we want a date before that

Sr Adv Jaising has filed an IA on behalf of Tushar Gandhi

Jaising:  it was on Mr Gandhi's petition that court had passed orders regarding mob lynching

CJI: it appears some other bench is hearing this matter

Sibal: there are no similar petitions.

CJI: Do you know how many other petitions are there and how many IAs will be filed.

Jaisingh: it was our plea of 2019 when guidelines were issued

Sibal: there was a matter which was sent to you by Justice AM Khanwilkar led bench

Adv Kaleeswaram Raj: there is a hate speech issue pending before Justice DY Chandrachud led bench

Sibal: this is Dharam Sansad issue and we dont want it tagged. please hear this

Sibal: if no quick steps are taken such dharam sansads will be held in Una, Dasna, Kurukshetra and these events vitiate the entire country's atmosphere. it will erode the ethos of this democracy

Jaising: if the 2019 judgment would have been followed these dharam sansads would not have been organised

CJI: There are laws and there is a judgment of this court too. so now this is the first case on which law has to be laid down but she says 2019 case is there

Jaising: that issue was related to mob lynching due to cattle smuggling. Here there is an open call to exterminate Muslims

CJI: There is an office report citing Skand Bajpai case before Justice Khanwilkar bench which was to be listed before appropriate bench. what is this?

Sibal: this was before any dharam sansads were held, these november pleas have nothing to do

CJI: The question is .. counsels are saying other judgments are there and implementation is needed. We are issuing notice and we will list it after 10 days. we will see if its connected then we will tag

Sibal: but the next dharam sansad is on January 23, pls have it on Monday

CJI: We allow the petitioner to bring the case before the notice of the authorities and how it is against certain penal provisions

Jaising: relevant provisions of the IPC are not being invoked. that is the issue

Hearing ends.
