Thirumavalavan’s case against granting permission to RSS procession: ICourt refuses to hear it as an urgent case | Thirumavalavan’s case against granting permission to RSS procession: HC refuses to hear it as an urgent case

Chennai: A single judge of the Madras High Court refused to hear as an urgent case the petition filed by VC leader Thirumavalavan seeking withdrawal of the order granting permission for the RSS march. The Chief Justice has directed the bench to file an appeal.

Madras High Court Judge G.K. heard the cases filed on behalf of the RSS organization seeking permission to hold a procession on October 2 at more than 50 places across Tamil Nadu. Ilandraiyan had directed the police department to give permission for the procession by September 28.

The leader of the Liberation Tigers of India Thol Thirumavalavan filed a petition in the Madras High Court yesterday to withdraw this order. In the petition, “RSS, which follows the policy of divisive religious harmony, should not be given permission to hold a rally on Gandhi Jayanti. This rally is against Ambedkar’s policy of not believing in Vijaya Dasami. RSS is trying to portray Ambedkar as a supporter of Hindutva. Therefore, RSS will hold a rally on October 2.” Permission should not be granted,” he had demanded in the petition.

Thirumavalavan’s side filed an appeal before Judge Ilanthirayan today that this petition should be heard as an urgent case today or tomorrow. But how can the petition be heard when the judge is neither the petitioner nor the counter-petitioner in the already ordered case? He questioned and refused to investigate as an urgent case.

Thirumavalavan advised the parties that the petition will be heard after the counting procedures are completed and if necessary, appeal against the sanction order.

After the single judge refused to hear his petition as an urgent case, on Thirumavalavan’s side, Chief Justice T. Raja, Justice D. Krishnakumar and the appeal was heard. But the judges have explained that Thirumavalavan’s request can only be filed as an appeal.
