NEW DELHI: The Supreme Court on Wednesday refused to pass an interim order staying demolitions across states. The top court was hearing a plea filed by Jamiat-Ulama-I-Hind seeking directions to Uttar Pradesh authorities to ensure that no further demolitions of properties are carried out in the State without following due process.
The apex court said it cannot pass an omnibus order preventing authorities from taking action. While listing the plea filed by the Jamiat Ulama-i-Hind against demolitions, for hearing on August 10, the court asked the parties to complete their pleadings in the matter.
UP govt shuns allegations
During Wednesday’s hearing, senior advocate Dushyant Dave, appearing for the petitioners, claimed that UP authorities are following a “pick and choose” method while carrying out the demolition drive.
Refuting claims that a particular community is being targeted, government’s counsel SG Tushar Mehta said, “There is no other community … there’s only the Indian community.
Countering the UP’s counsel, Dave pointed out that nobody the Sainik Farms has remained untouched inspite of it being “illegal”.
As Dave termed the matter “extremely serious”, and said, “authorities have to act in accordance with law”, SG Mehta, informed the court that replies have been filed by authorities and that due procedure was followed and notices were issued and that the demolition process had started much before the riots.
Jamait-Ulama-I-Hind challenged demolition of houses of those who involved in protests in UP and told the Superme Court that the “same modus operandi is being adopted in other states like Gujarat, MP and Assam”. It also pleaded with the court to decide the case expeditiously.
