High Court declines to permit Muharram procession

Hyderabad: Telangana High court on Wednesday declined to entertain a plea for taking out a procession on the occasion of 10th of Moharrum. While hearing the plea filed by the Fatima Seva Dal, Justice T Vinod Kumar informed the petitioners that on August 25, Supreme Court has already denied to pass any orders in connection with the taking out a procession for Moharrum.

When the Apex court has declined to pass any orders how can the High Court give consent for a procession. However petitioner’s counsel Durga Prasad argued that only a few persons may be allowed to take out the Alam Mubarak on elephant from Bibi Ka Alawa since its an very old custom of the community.
