Hyderabad Million March Date Postponed

Hyderabad Million March Date Postponed: Million March called by the joint action committee of Muslim organizations today has been postponed after the High Court adjourned a petition filed against the rejection of police permission for the rally to December 31.

After the court’s decision, the JAC will announce a fresh date for the march. Multiple petitions have been filed challenging the denial of police permission. The first petition filed by Mohammad Mushtaq Malik asked the court not to permit the police to interfere in the march.

Dismissing the first petition filed by Mohammed Mushtaq Malik, the judge found fault with the prayer in the petition which was seeking directions to the police to not interfere in the citizens’ dissent to be organized in the form of peaceful protest.

This is objectionable because police are entrusted with the task of maintaining law and order, the judge said. The judge also said that he cannot pass any such orders to police as they are competent authority to ensure law or order intact and their presence and interference is invariable.

The second petition filed by Syed Abdul Azeem of Syed Khaleel Ullah Hussain Memorial Foundation challenging the action of the police in rejecting permission to hold a million march. The judge dismissed the plea too.

However, the court said that the march could not take place without police as it is a large gathering of people and adjourned the plea to December 31.

On Friday, the Hyderabad police commissioner Anjani Kumar reiterated that no permission will be given to the Million March on Tank Bund today. “Hyderabad city police has not given permission for any rally, march or procession for December 28. Please don’t get carried away by any fake news, rumors or propaganda,” the tweet reads.
