What a justice in practice! RSS is not allowed to carry lathi in route march in Tamil Nadu.
Snatch the ‘lathis” (sticks) from the hands of RSS Swaymsevaks (volunteers) and allow Muslim hooligans to carry Swords, Choppers etc. along with their favourite ISIS and Paki T-Shirts. Whether the Chief Justices of High Courts were sleeping at the time of Muharram! Why they didn’t intervene souo mato to stop the Islamic menace in the name of Muharram.
Upananda Brahmachari | HENB | Chennai | 7 Nov 2014:: Just a couple of days later the observance of Muharram (on 4th Nov ) with all lethal weapons, brandishing swords and wearing ISIS and Pakistani blazers in many places in country, the Indian system of Administration, Police and Judiciary had an explicit realisation to ban ‘lathi’ (sticks) in Tamil Nadu route march of RSS.
The Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangha (RSS) of Tamil Nadu had planned to conduct a route march in every district of the state on November 9, 2014, in commemoration of 1000th anniversary of coronation of Chola King, Great Rajendra Chola. While permissions were sought to conduct route march in every district, Tamil Nadu Police denied the permission citing Section 41 A of Chennai City Police Act, 1888, read with Section 54(A) of the Tamilnadu District Police Act, 1859. Aggrieved RSS representatives filed writ petitions under Article 226 of the Constitution of India, in Madras High Court against this ban on route marches by negating permissions.
The Case was heard by Justice V.Ramasubramanianon on 3rd November and 6th November, 2014 in a bundle of writ petitions bearing No.28677 to 28683 of 2014 arisen out 7 districts namely Chennai, Mannargudi, Tuticorin, Karur, Coimbatore and Kanyakumari.
After hearing, Hon’able Court observed that the orders passed by the state respondents are not in accordance with the mandate of Section 41A, as the section has no application to the holding of processions. When arguments came up on how to differentiate the uniform of khaki trouser and white shirt worn by the Police personnel resembling the uniforms of RSS volunteers, Hon’ble Judge observed that no member of police force today wear half trousers and the uniform of RSS was designed way back in 1920s and consequently set aside the argument on state respondents. Observing that the Act is only for regulating and not prohibiting, Justice Ramasubramanian allowed the writ petitions filed by RSS representatives, directing the respondents to grant permission to the petitioners to allow processions in the routes specified and to hold procession and public meetings in the places earmarked.
But, derogatory enough to the Sangha statute, the counsels on behalf of RSS had to ascertain “that the processionists will not carry lathis and will not shout slogans inciting any violence or offending sentiments of anyone.” (!!!!!!)
In the delivered order it is clearly said, “27. In the cases on hand, the learned counsel for the petitioners have stated that the processionists will not carry lathis and will not shout slogans inciting any violence or offending sentiments of anyone. In any case, the right flowing under Article 19(1)(b) itself is restricted to assemble peaceably and without arms. Since the definition of the expression “arms” includes “lathis”, the processionists cannot carry lathis. The organisers are prepared to give the names and addresses of persons who will take responsibility for any untoward incident, if it happens. Therefore, after having permitted rallies, processions and public meetings for several organisations, it may not be possible to deny such permission to the petitioners.”
According to the source RSS will take out route march on 9th Nov in Sangha uniform in seven districts of Tamil Nadu without any ‘Dand’ (Lathi – Stick) or sword anyway.
By the way, the Great Rajendra Chola, whose 1000th coronation commemoration is the material cause of the RSS route March in Tamil Nadu on 9th, was renowned for his avenging skill and great military power.
Lol, in Indian system, Muslims can perform a very ‘secular’ Muharram with iron rods, swords, chains, blade, chopper, lathis and whatever they wish to carry for an observation in ‘ashura’ in ‘Muharram’ in the name of bloody mourning, even they can wear T-shirts of ISIS or Pakistan. But, Hindus cannot and cannot be allowed carry a stick even with them.
Meanwhile, it was aired that the State Government intends to go on an appeal against the Court order.
