The TN Sunnath Jamaath at Triplicane moved the Court seeking to restrain The Tamil Nadu Thawheed Jamaath

A petition has been filed in the Madras High Court seeking a direction to the State Home Secretary, the DGP and the Commissioner of Police not to grant permission to Tamil Nadu Thowheed Jamaath for holding a conference at Tiruchirappalli on January 31, claiming that it would create law and order problems.

The TN Sunnath Jamaath at Triplicane moved the Court seeking to restrain The Tamil Nadu Thawheed Jamaath of Armenian Street in the city from holding the conference.

The petitioner alleged that the conference was to condemn the practice of idol worship or photos of gods, among others, and claimed that it would create law and order problem and communal harmony would be badly affected if permission was granted for the conference.

As there was no response to an earlier representation to the authorities, the present plea was filed, the petitioner said.

When the matter came up before Justice R Mahadevan on January 22, Additional Government Pleader P Sanjay Gandhi took notice and the judge posted the matter for filing counter to January 27.
