Tamil Nadu moves Supreme Court challenging Madras HC order allowing RSS march

MK STalin

Tamil Nadu DMK government has moved Supreme Court of India against Madras High Court division order permitting Hindu militant group RSS to conduct a route march in the southern state.

“Allowing such a march could cause law and order issue,” said the government.

“Action that has been initiated by the State is reasonable restriction to maintain public order,” it added.

The Madras High Court last week permitted the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) to take out its route march in Tamil Nadu on rescheduled dates, and observed that protests are essential for healthy democracy.

Setting aside the order passed on November 4, 2022, order by a single judge that had imposed conditions on the proposed statewide route march asking the RSS to hold the march indoors or in enclosed space, the court restored the order dated September 22, 2022, which directed the Tamil Nadu police to consider the RSS’ representation seeking permission to conduct the march and a public meeting, as well, and to grant permission for the same.
