The government is facing pressure to make public the court decisions that have been blocked in the wake of a controversial judgement.
The Supreme Court on Wednesday refused to lift a ban on the prayer of all Muslim clerics in the capital Delhi.
A bench of Chief Justice Kailash Satyanarayana and Justice Rakesh Tiwari ruled that the ban on all Muslim prayers is unconstitutional.
The court said the Delhi government should make the decision on the matter.
The court’s decision came after a bench of Justices Rakeshi and S.V. Ramaswamy rejected the government’s plea for a stay on the judgment.
The order is likely to be challenged in the Supreme Court.
The government had earlier this year asked the court to lift the ban and asked the state government to get the government-appointed legal officer, the judge in the matter, to conduct an independent review of the judgment and submit its opinion to the court within five days.
The apex court, in its judgement, said the judgment is a fundamental right guaranteed under Article 21(1)(a) of the Constitution and Article 19(1) of Scheduled Caste (Prevention) Act, 1950, to be protected by law.
The bench also directed the Delhi Government to appoint a special advocate to ensure that all decisions are followed and not a single opinion can be taken in the case.
