Your petition is mischievous in character: Bench
A bench of the apex court, headed by Justice Sanjay Kishan Kaul, while declining the plea, said, “your petition is mischievous in character.”
The bench, while hearing a petition filed by Akhand Bharat Morcha, said that these are issues that we cannot go into.
“Court cannot determine who can be vegetarian or non-vegetarian. Those who want to eat halal meat can eat halal meat. Those who want to eat Jhatka meat can eat Jhatka,” the bench said.
