These days protests are going on in the entire country regarding the Citizenship Amendment Act, the police is pressing to end such protests. Be it Uttar Pradesh or Prime Minister’s state, Gujarat is ending this protest by putting police pressure on the protesters everywhere. Many states are not being allowed to protest against this law. So the protesters are turning to the court. But the Allahabad High Court has made such an observation that it would not be considered in the interest of the country to allow a demonstration against CAA.
The case is that of Firozabad district of Uttar Pradesh, Mohammad Furqan had moved the court with the plea that some students want to protest against the CAA. But the district administration is not allowing them to do this. Taking objection to this petition, the counsel for the state government said that earlier on 20 December 2019, violence took place at several places in Firozabad.
The two-judge High Court bench, comprising Justice Bharati Sapru and Justice Piyush Agrawal said, “It is not in the national interest to give any relief to the petitioner at all. If the petitioner is a citizen of India, he must maintain peace at any costs. Hence, we are not inclined to interfere in the matter.”
