The Supreme Court on Tuesday blamed lack of political will for the rise in hate crimes. Terming attacks on north Indians in Mumbai by Raj Thackeray’s Maharashtra Navnirnan Sena as a ‘serious matter,’ the Supreme Court said that the problem of regional chauvinism and hate attacks should be tackled by the government.
The court on November 10 will hear a PIL seeking direction to the government to deal with the violence against north Indians in Mumbai. The bench was initially not inclined to entertain the petition filed by businessman Salek Chand Jain, and said that it was for the Centre to invoke Article 355 for giving appropriate direction to the concerned state.
However, later it observed that the “issue was serious” and agreed to hear the matter directing for amending the petition. The petition was mentioned before the bench by counsel Sugriv Dubey.
