Ashutosh Parrikar | HENB | Panaji | Jan 3, 2016:: The Supreme Court of India on Tuesday sought the response of the Goa government on a plea of Sri Ram Sene chief Pramod Muthalik seeking a stay on the order restraining him and his associates from entering the state territory. The BJP coalition Govt in Goa has been putting various hurdles to Ram Sene and its Chief so that they would not spread their organisation in Goa. Astonishingly, the VHP and RSS are not also opposing such vindictive move of the state against a prominent Hindu leader like Muthalik.
An ex-RSS Pracharak (whole-timer) and Bajrangdal leader Muthalik formed Sri Ram Sene in the year 2006 after serving Sangha Parivar in various capacities from 1975 to 2005.
A bench of Justices Dipak Misra and Arun Mishra sought response from the state government within four weeks after advocate Vishnu Shankar Jain, appearing for Muthalik contended the repeated extension of bar on his entry to the state since 2014 was violative of the petitioner’s fundamental rights.
The right-wing leader has also challenged the state government’s September 23, 2016, prohibitory order under Section 144 of CrPC contending that it was illegal and repeatedly passed without giving him a hearing.
His plea said that the repetitive prohibitory orders passed by the Goa government and district magistrates of South and North Goa are “illegal and without jurisdiction”.
The plea sought ex-parte ad-interim stay of the operation of notification passed by the Goa government and ex-parte ad-interim permission to visit the state.
In the September 23, 2016, notification, the Goa government banned his entry in the state on the ground that his presence will promote enmity between different groups.
Seeking quashing of this notification, Mutalik also sought from the apex court a compensation for the “illegal acts”, saying it was violative of his fundamental rights guaranteed under Article 14, 19(1)(b)(d), 21 and 25 of the Constitution.
“It is most respectfully submitted that the petitioner wants to visit the State of Goa for religious purpose and in the exercise of his religious and constitutional rights,” he said.
The first order restraining Muthalik from entering the state was issued by the district magistrates of North Goa and South Goa on August 19, 2014, for 60 days. The orders were subsequently extended further.
Muthalik had filed a similar plea in 2015 seeking entry in Goa which was dismissed by the Bombay High Court on July 2, 2015, and later on August 31, 2015, by the Supreme Court.
During these time frame the BJP led Goa Govt permitted various subversive wings to hold their meetings in presence of many communal leaders of Christian and Muslim community from outside but denied entry of Muthalik in the state.
In 2004, Muthalik warned the Goa state govt to stop ‘mass conversion in christianity’ and ‘porno and wine culture in Goa beaches’.
