SDPI is a political party founded in 2009. It is the political offshoot of the Islamist organization PFI.
In response to the court’s unfavorable remarks against him, SDPI said it would file a petition seeking the annulment of those remarks.
“This is a very serious observation. So far no investigative agency has made such remarks against SDPI. On what grounds did the court make such an observation? The court’s observations must be reasonable. Here, this has not happened,” said the president. Muwattupuja Ashraf Mulavi on Friday.
Reiterating SDPI’s views, PFI said the court’s objections to it were unfounded.
In a Facebook post, PFI CA leader Rauf complained that they had not been heard by the court before making such unfavorable observations.
He said the PFI also plans to take legal action to erase those remarks.
“The main lesson in the administration of justice is to hear the parties concerned before making any comments against them. In this case, no such thing has happened. It is tantamount to a denial of natural justice,” he said.
in the meantime, Sang Parivar organizations welcomed the court’s remarks against the PFI and SDPI, arguing that there was evidence to prove the “inhuman anti-national activity” of these teams in the country.
KP Sasikala, leader of the Hindu Aikyavedi, said PFI and SDPI should be banned. Governments must also make sure they do not take any other form and engage in extremist activities after the country’s ban, she said.
RSS worker A Sanjith, 27, was hacked to death on November 15 last year while taking his wife to work. Police later arrested several people in the case, including a PFI officer.
In its May 5 ruling, the Supreme Court said that Investigating officer denied the involvement of state or national team leaders in the commission of the crime.
“Just because some of the perpetrators remain at large, the CBI cannot be asked to investigate. Here, the investigating agency does not seem to have much interest in the case or is interested in covering up the perpetrators. In other words, the partisan attitude cannot be brought out, “the court said.
Noting that the perpetrators involved in the crime have been identified and many have been arrested, the Supreme Court said that if the investigation is handed over to the CBI, it will further delay the proceedings.
“This is not in the public interest. This could also pave the way for the defendants to be released on bail,” the court order said.
