A letter petition has been sent to CJI S.A. Bobde seeking directions to Central Government and Delhi Government to impose a “complete ban” on the activities of Tablighi Jamaat with immediate effect.
Letter petition has sought a direction to Centre and Delhi Government to transfer the investigation to the CBI to probe into the alleged “conspiracy of spreading the infection throughout India in the garb of congregation.”
At least 9,000 people had participated in the religious gathering at Tablighi Jamaat’s headquarters in Delhi’s Nizamuddin West last month.
Petition filed by Delhi-based Ajay Gautam has sought a direction to the Delhi Government to demolish the building of the organization at Nizamuddin here under the provision of the MCD Act.
Petitioner has urged the CJI to treat his letter petition as a writ petition.
The letter has sought a direction to the authorities to take strict action against the officers of Police and Civil Administration, who had failed in strict compliance of the orders by Delhi government which restricted gatherings to maximum of 50 persons, and later to 20.
