Supreme Court orders not to make political statement on Muslim quota In Karnataka!

New Delhi May 9: The Supreme Court has taken seriously the fact that some people are making politically motivated statements on the issue of canceling the 4% reservation quota given to Muslims in Karnataka while the hearing is going on in the court.

The Supreme Court has objected to the statement of political leaders on the cancellation of 4 percent Muslim reservation in Karnataka while the case is pending in the court.

The court expressed this opinion while hearing a case related to the abolition of four percent Muslim quota in Karnataka. When there is a court order in a matter, some sanctity should be maintained, the court said.

The Supreme Court today adjourned the hearing on the Karnataka Muslim quota issue and extended its interim order staying the order to abolish the quota until further orders. The state government has assured the court that no admissions or appointments will be made till the next date of hearing.

Solicitor General Tushar Mehta, who appeared on behalf of the Karnataka government, requested the court to adjourn the hearing of the case as he had to appear before the Constitutional Bench, and the bench led by Justice KM Joseph ordered the adjournment of the hearing. Now the court has postponed the hearing of the case to July 25.

While Solicitor General Mehta sought an adjournment of the hearing, the petitioners challenging the cancellation of reservation raised objections in the court over Home Minister Amit Shah’s remarks. While the hearing of the case is still pending in the court, Union Home Minister Amit Shah spoke about this and brought to the court’s attention that the 4 percent reservation given to Muslims was unconstitutional.

Intervening at this stage, the Solicitor General strongly objected to raising the matter in the court and said that the court was not a forum for political struggle. Although the Supreme Court bench expressed displeasure with the Home Minister’s statement, it did not put it in writing in its order and adjourned the case to July 25.
