No stay on Citizenship Amendment Act, National Population Register, says Supreme Court


New Delhi, Jan 22 (IANS): The Supreme Court on Wednesday refused to pass any order to restrain the operation of Citizenship (Amendment) Act (CAA) or National Population Register (NPR).

The top court gave four weeks time to the Centre to file counter affidavit.

A bench headed by Chief Justice S.A. Bobde also indicated the probability of constituting a Constitution Bench to take up the matter on the next date of hearing.

Senior advocate Kapil Sibal appearing for Indian Union Muslim League challenging the new law, urged the court to postpone the process for a few months.

However, Attorney General K.K. Venugopal opposed it saying it was equivalent to a stay.

"It means as good as granting stay on the operation of the law," said the AG.

Then the Chief Justice said: "We aren't going to pass any such order today."

    Tight slap on face of those spreading mis information and anti CAA protests. Now stop the Shaheen Bagh and other minority drama on roads and come under gambit of law.

    When did this love to Pakistanis emerge? From the day I remember, you people were hating Pakistanis so much and now all of sudden.

    Exactly. This Government, not even once since the party was formed, raised any voice against persecution happening to Indian minorities. No one should be treated unequal. This is dangerous.

    Don't worry. Pakistan is also planning their own version of CAA for all "percuted" minorities from India.

    Whatever may be the verdict, minorities' life in PK and BD will be a little better after this since it got intl. coverage.. happy for that.

    Also, minorities in India feel much privileged compared to those countries for sure...

    What privileges are you talking about? The Constitution of India gives equal rights and privileges to every single citizen. You are sounding like the country is doing a favour to the minorities.

    The agitators against CAA want India head to anarchy like Syria and Iraq. This great civilization surviving the holocaust is a perennial headache for them. Every serious nation should know who are its citizens and should have documented it. The country should not be treated as brothel, for every dick and harry to enter and exit at will with no question being asked. How a welfare state can do resource planning without ascertaining the population and what is the point in keeping the boarders non-porous if anybody and everybody can become citizen without due process.....?
