NAINITAL, Jun. 14, 2023 (TBINN)

Amid brewing communal tensions in Uttarakhand, its High Court Chief Justice agreed to hear on Thursday a petition seeking to halt a mahapanchayat scheduled to be held on June 15, 2023 by Hindutva groups in Uttarakhand’s Purola Town of the hill state.

Petitioner, Association for Protection of Civil Rights, approached the High Court after the Supreme Court vacation bench refused to entertain a petition. The matter was mentioned before the Uttarakhand High Court Chief Justice Vipin Sanghi by their lawyer Shahrukh Alam. She pointed out that it was a writ petition seeking directions to the government in view of the mandamus by the Supreme Court in matters related to hate speech in Uttar Kashi and Tehri Garwhal.

Alam said Muslims in Purola were given an ultimatum to leave the town before the mahapanchayat scheduled for June 15, 2023 (tomorrow). As the petition was in the process of being filed, Justice Sanghi agreed to hear it on June 15, 2023.
