New Delhi (ILNS): A petition has come before the Supreme Court – filed by Jamiat Ulama I Hind against the Union of India – asking it to direct the government and the media not to demonize the entire Muslim community for the spread of COVID-19, because of one religious congregation, by the Tablighi Jamaat at Nizamuddin Markaz.

The top court bench of Chief Justice S. A. Bobde and Justices A. S. Bopanna and V. Ramasubramanian has directed Solicitor General Tushar Mehta to submit a list of acts on which the government has exercised powers.

During hearing, the bench asked: “Does the government have the power to ban the television broadcasters association?”

Regarding the reply, CJI Bobde objected to a junior officer filing it. That reply had said that no incident had taken place on Jamiat Ulama-I-Hind complaining of Centre not taking any step to stop motivated TV broadcasts targeting the Muslim Community during the Covid pandemic after Tablighi Congregation at Delhi. The SG has agreed to file a fresh affidavit.

The matter will be listed after two weeks.
