Chennai, October 4: The Madras High Court has allowed Rashtriya Swayamsewak Sangh (RSS) members to take out marches at 14 places in Tamil Nadu in November along with certain conditions.
The court has asked RSS to follow a dress code of full pants and mentioned that slogans must not be raised among other things.
The Madras High Court set aside the objections raised by Tamil Nadu government stating that RSS route marches could not be allowed when the state is scheduled to hold civic polls later in September.
The AIADMK govt said that the situation in Tamil Nadu is volatile following the murder of a Hindu Munnani leader in Coimbatore. The HC said that RSS can take out rallies on November 6 or 13 as suggested by its counsel.
After objections from Tamil Nadu govt, RSS moved HC since the requests and representations to the cops and district administration seeking permission to hold rally did not evoke any response.
Allowing the pleas on Monday, judge of Madras HC mentioned that RSS cadre must come with proper dress code during processions. The counsel of the organisation had submitted a proposal to take out processions on November 6 or 13, the judge said adding they should not indulge in any lawful activities during the rally.
“They should not raise any slogans that will affect the sentiments of others and the police could impose any other condition required as per law,” the judge said.
