Last resort of Muthalik, challenges Goa ban in SC

PTI, NEW DELHI | 25 August 2015 21:47 IST

Sri Ram Sena chief Pramod Muthalik today moved the Supreme Court challenging the Bombay High court order banning his entry into Goa to maintain peace and harmony in the state.

He has sought stay of the order of the Goa bench of the High Court which on July 2 had refused to interfere with the prohibitory order imposed on him and his associates by the state police. 

The right-wing leader also questioned the prohibitory order passed under section 144 of the CrPC contending that it was illegal and repeatedly passed without giving him a hearing.

He has sought ex-parte permission to visit Goa. 

Challenging the high court order claiming that it was violation of his fundamental rights, he has claimed that it "clearly erred in law and in facts of the case". 

The petition said the repetitive prohibitory orders passed by the Goa government and District Magistrates of South and North Goa are "illegal and without jurisdiction". 

The first order restraining Mutalik from entering the state was issued by the district magistrates of North Goa and South Goa on August 19 last year for 60 days.

The orders were subsequently extended further.

I'm against any kind of religious fundamentalism, but here Muthalik is being targeted to please some very special religious groups in Goa. How about the bile spewing Owesi and other Islamic fundamentalist do they need a visa too to enter Goa? what a joke! As if the communal harmony in Goa will disappear if Muthalik puts a step in Goa!

Let Mr. Pramod Muthalik maintain peace and harmony in his own state from where he belongs and not to interfear in Goa. It's not his lookout to see what is happening in Goa and with the goans.

Goa govt is acting as if Mutalik is a terrorist, and on the other hand they allow Terror organisations like Popular Front of India, to function smoothly. Its killing of ones fundamental rights. Shame on Goa Govt
