Right to protest cannot be anytime, everywhere: SC dismissing review petition on CAA agitation ruling

New Delhi/IBNS: Dismissing a petition seeking a review of its order on the anti-Citizenship (Amendment) Act protests, the Supreme Court in its latest order said the right to protest cannot be anytime and everywhere.

"The right to protest cannot be anytime and everywhere. There may be some spontaneous protests but in case of prolonged dissent or protest, there cannot be continued occupation of public places affecting the rights of others," a three-judge bench of the top court said late Friday night as quoted by NDTV.

The bench comprising Justice SK Kaul, Aniruddha Bose and Krishna Murari reiterated that public places cannot be occupied for protests.

The topmost level of Indian judiciary last year had said no public place can be indefinitely occupied by protesters while giving its judgement on the months long agitation against the contentious citizenship law at Delhi's Shaheen Bagh.

Shaheen Bagh had last year emerged as the epicenter of the anti-CAA protests as agitators, mostly women, sat on the site for over three months until it was forced to call off due to the Novel Coronavirus pandemic.
