Summary- Legal News: On Monday, the Supreme Court dismissed the plea by the government of Uttar Pradesh seeking to prevent the Allahabad High Court from investigating the state's controversial anti-conversion law and that no constitutional court should be "lightly" pursued.
The Supreme Court, led by Chief Justice of India (CJI) SA Bobde, made it clear that it would not move the petitions against UP Prohibition of the Unconstitutional Conversion of Religion Ordinance 2020 itself, but would like the High Court to decide on the validity of the statute.
The bench including justices AS Bopanna and V Ramasubramanian said that if the High Court of Allahabad is going to hear it and resolve it easily, why should we interfere? Why are we going to move the situation here? We want the benefit of the High Court ruling.
The bench cleared the High Court decks to proceed suitably as the case comes to a hearing before the High Court on 6 February.
The State Government has obtained adjournments from the High Court at the last two hearings citing related pleas before the Supreme Court.
Senior advocate PS Narasimha, representing the UP government, requested the Bank to pass the two petitions.
