The Supreme Court on Friday chided a counsel while rejecting his plea seeking a direction to the Centre to send Muslims living in India to Pakistan.
Yes, you read it right. The Islamophic rant often used during heated Facebook and Twitter debates today made it to the apex court. According to a PTI report, a petitioner today asked SC to direct the government to send Indian Muslims to Pakistan.
The plea, which also sought a direction to the government to bring Hindus living in Pakistan to India, came up for hearing before a bench of Justices RF Nariman and Vineet Saran.
"What is this? Do you seriously want to argue this? Are you sure? We will hear you but we will pass strictures against you," the bench told the counsel representing the petitioner.
When the lawyer replied in the negative, the bench dismissed the petition.
