Calcutta High Court has granted permission for the annual Ram Navami Shobha Yatra (processions) in Howrah district on April 17

The Calcutta High Court has granted permission for the annual Ram Navami Shobha Yatra (processions) in Howrah district on April 17 to two Hindu organizations, Anjani Putra Sena and the Vishwa Hindu Parishad.

Justice Jay Sengupta, allowed the organizations to follow the routes they’ve been using for the past 15 years for these processions.

Last year, violence erupted between Hindus and Muslims along this route toward Howrah Maidan, prompting the West Bengal government to propose an alternative route to prevent clashes. However, the organizations insisted on sticking to their traditional path and sought judicial intervention.

The Calcutta High Court’s permission comes with conditions, including a cap on the number of participants at 200 and a prohibition on provocative slogans against any community. Additionally, the court suggested the state consider involving Central Forces to maintain law and order during the event.

The State highlighted last year’s communal violence, which led to an ongoing investigation by the National Investigation Agency (NIA) and the arrest of over 11 individuals from the Howrah area where the procession is scheduled. Despite these concerns, the The Calcutta High Court upheld the organizations’ right to conduct the procession along their chosen route.
