The Supreme Court on Tuesday gave the green signal to hear the petition of five Malaysian citizens who had joined the Marklaj of Tabliki Jamaat in Nizamuddin in March this year. All five have pleaded to dismiss the lawsuit filed by the Bihar government for violating the Foreigners Act for their involvement in Markaz.

Justices AM Khanwilkar, Justice BR Gavai and Justice Krishna Murari directed the petitioners to be given advance copy of the petition.

“Counsel for the petitioners is allowed to submit an advance copy of the petition to the Standing Counsel for the State of Bihar on-line or by email,” the bench said. The bench said, Bihar Council’s Standing Counsel Sahil Ravin agrees to accept the notice.

Along with this, the bench directed its registry to list the matter with the October 15 writ petition and other related matters.

Earlier, Advocate Fauzia Shakeel filed a petition on behalf of Malaysian citizens. Shakeel demanded from the bench that the action taken by the Central and Bihar governments against their clients be declared a violation of the fundamental rights given to foreign nationals in the Indian Constitution.

He demanded the Bihar government to withdraw the case filed against his clients and direct the Union Home Ministry to remove him from the black list and re-validate his visa so that they can all safely return to their homes.
