CHENNAI: The Villupuram unit of the Hindu Munnani (HM) has moved the Madras High Court to quash an order (by Thiruvennai Nallur police) disallowing them from staging a demonstration on December 6, for claiming ownership of the disputed land in Ayodhya, for the construction of a temple dedicated to Lord Ram.
Villupuram unit Hindu Munnani general secretary, S Elumalai, submitted the writ petition to Additional Government Pleader, P Sanjay Gandhi, who took notice of the petition, on Friday. The matter will be considered on December 2.
The petitioner alleged discrimination on the grounds that Muslims were staging protests every year condemning the demolition of Babri Masjid.
The general secretary Elumalai’s application to stage a demonstration at 10.30 a.m. on December 6 in Bazaar Street in Thiruvennai Nallur was rejected on the same day by the police. The application had only sought permission to hold a peaceful demonstration.
The petitioner in its statement has demanded that the Thiruvennai Nallur police not discriminate between Hindu and Muslim organisations.
It may be recalled that the Babri Masjid was demolished on December 6, 1992.
