A five-member Supreme Court of India’s Constitution bench of Justices N V Ramana, S K Kaul, R Subhash Reddy, B R Gavai and Surya Kant heard pleas related to Abrogation of Article 370. There were, in all, 11 pleas against abrogation of Article 370 and 7 petitions on Kashmir lockdown.The petitions of activists and political parties against abrogation of Article 370 were thrown out by the Supreme Court and were pulled up for spreading lies and falsehoods #Article370Abrogation Click To Tweet
The pleas have been filed by several political parties such as Sitaram Yechury, Ghulam Nabi Azad, National Conference (NC), the Sajjad Lone-led J&K Peoples Conference and CPI (M) via its leader Mohd Yousuf Tarigami.
They were all heard today and the Supreme Court quashed them and ruled that no more petitions will be allowed with respect to the curbs in Kashmir.
Supreme Court of India’s bench reprimanded the lawyers as they brought the pleas to the highest court directly, asking them to go to the High Court first.
Why come to the highest court directly? Was it for publicity?
The subversive Article 370 of the Indian Constitution was abrogated by the Indian Parliament on August 5, 2019 – Article 370 revoked as India Embraces Kashmir as it’s own
When Ghulam Nabi Azad’s lawyer said that High Court is not functioning, the judges got very angry and pulled them up for spreading lies.
Remember that the Supreme Court had sought a report from the Jammu and Kashmir High Court, which had informed the Supreme Court that it was functioning normally.
The bench pulled these petitioners up for spreading lies.
The Supreme Court made it clear that Rights and LIberties had to be balanced against the National Security.
Thus the attempt of Anti-India forces to subvert a legislative action by the Indian Parliament was thwarted by a Five member Constitution bench of the Supreme Court of India.
