SC asks Kerala govt to adhere to guidelines for observance Eid-al-Adha festival

The Supreme Court today asked Kerala Government to adhere to the same guidelines laid down by the court for the Kanwar Yatra in the wake of the Kerala Government’s decision to relax COVID-19 restrictions for the Eid-al-Adha festival. A bench comprising of Justices R.F. Nariman and B.R. Gavai directed the state to pay heed to Article 21 and its order in the Kanwar Yatra case. Last Friday, the Court had cited the fundamental right to life to order the Uttar Pradesh Government to stop the annual Kanwar Yatra.

 

The court was responding to a plea against Kerala Government’s move to ease lockdown restrictions ahead of Eid-al-Adha (Bakr-Id) at a time when the state is dealing with an alarming surge in COVID-19 cases.
