The Supreme Court has made strict action on the violent performance of students in Jamia Millia University and Aligarh Muslim University on the Citizenship Amendment Act. On the plea of senior advocate Indira Jaising, the apex court said that it would hear the matter tomorrow but before that violence should stop. Jaising argued before Chief Justice SA Bobde that human rights are being violated all over the country.
Chief Justice of India SA Bobde on Monday said, “Let all this stop and then only we will hear. We can’t be bullied like this. Just because someone is being asked to leave the campus. Public properties are being destroyed, buses being burnt this must stop.” He further added, “I don’t think the courts can do much. It is law and order problem. Police have to deal with it. But we will still hear it once the peace is restored. Just because they happen to be students, it doesn’t mean they can take law and order in their own hands.”
Case will be heard on Tuesday
In front of the bench of Chief Justice, the petitioner also said that there was an alleged video of violence by the police. In response to this, the Chief Justice reprimanded the petitioner and said that this is a court room, here you have to put your point in peace. The Chief Justice said, “But remember, we will hear this only when there is no further escalation. If protests and destruction of public properties continue, we won’t hear you.”
If there is protest and violence, the case will not be heard: SC
The Supreme Court has agreed to hear the petitions on Tuesday in which students of Aligarh Muslim University and Jamia Millia Islamia University, who are protesting against the Citizenship Amendment Act have been accused of brutal police action. “All we want is that the violence should stop,” the bench said and further added “We can see what we can do but not like this. If you want to take to the street, do that but then don’t come to us. Let there be peace first and we will see what we can do.”
