Tamil Nadu: Situation sensitive before RSS march, heavy police force deployed at many places

Highlights

The Madras High Court has allowed the RSS to hold marches at 44 places in Tamil Nadu on 6 November.
Earlier the state government had given permission to the RSS to take out marches in only three places out of 50.
The High Court said that the RSS should take out the march in a peaceful manner.

Chennai. Heavy police force has been deployed at three places in the state today ahead of the Tamil Nadu Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) march. The Madras High Court had allowed the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh to hold marches at 44 places across Tamil Nadu on 6 November. Whereas earlier the state government had given permission to the RSS to take out marches in only three places out of the first 50. Whereas the RSS had sought permission from the government for 50 places. The High Court had said in its decision that the RSS should take out the march peacefully or else it should be ready to face the consequences.

However, despite this the court refused permission to the RSS to march in six communally sensitive places including Coimbatore, Pollachi and Nagercoil. While ruling that nothing adverse was found in the reports of the intelligence agencies, the High Court asked the RSS to seek permission to march to those six other places after two months.

Tamil Nadu: RSS will challenge the High Court’s decision, postpone the procession and rally program

It is worth noting that recently a car explosion took place in Coimbatore a day before Diwali. In which a person named Jamisha Mubin was killed. The National Investigation Agency is investigating the matter amid fears that Mubeen had planned a major terrorist attack. The Tamil Nadu government had earlier denied permission to the RSS to march despite the court’s permission on October 2. Then the RSS had filed a contempt petition. Whereas the Director General of Police (DGP) of the state, in a letter to the Superintendents of Police (SPs) and Commissioners of Police, asked the RSS to allow the march based on the local law and order situation. Law and order concerns in Tamil Nadu were cited after the ban imposed on the Popular Front of India.
