Supreme Court dismisses PIL seeking action against alleged forceful conversion of Hindus at Mewat, Haryana

  • Cannot entertain a matter merely on the basis of newspaper reports – SC
  • Petitioners claim to have visited the locality and ascertained the facts themselves

What should Hindus do if neither the Government is doing anything about the atrocities being perpetrated on Hindus in Muslim-majority areas, nor the Court is ready to hear the petition ? The only solution for Hindus is to unite and establish the Hindu Rashtra.

New Delhi – The Supreme Court has declined to hear a PIL which sought action against alleged forceful religious conversion of Hindus in Muslim predominant Mewat in Haryana. A three-Judge Bench of CJI Ramana, Justice A S Bopanna and Justice Hrishikesh Roy dismissed the petition observing that the Court cannot entertain a matter merely based on newspaper reports.

1. The Court further said, ‘There is no concrete evidence for demanding the constitution of Special Investigating Team for probing forceful conversion of Hindus, forcible sale of Hindu property, and atrocities on young Hindu girls. Therefore, the plea cannot be heard’.

2. This petition was filed by Adv. Ranjana Agnihotri, Karunesh Shukla, and three others. During the argument through their lawyer Vishnu Shankar Jain, the petitioners told the Court, ‘We have visited the locality and have ascertained the facts ourselves and have filed an affidavit to that effect’.

3. The plea mentioned, ‘Hindus living in Mewat are in a very poor condition and their fundamental rights need to be protected. As Muslims are a majority in Mewat, Hindus are being terrorised. The religious freedom of Hindus is being violated here. The Administration and the Police have failed to address the issue. The Hindus here are still living in terror’.

Dismissal of the plea regarding Mewat forceful conversion issue will go down in the history of the SC – Adv. Vishnu Shankar Jain

Adv. Vishnu Shankar Jain said in a tweet, ‘Dismissal of PIL regarding Mewat will go down in the history of the SC. I will always ask questions as to why other petitions are entertained. It was a strong genuine case. I am sorry, my fellow brothers and sisters. I did my best’.
