Filing Of Writ Petition Only For Directions To Create Awareness Regarding Certain Laws Is Not Proper: Allahabad High Court

The Allahabad High Court observed that the filing of Writ Petition, praying for directions to create awareness regarding certain laws is not proper and that “it appears that such petitions are filed only for the sake of popularity.” The Bench of Justice Pankaj Mithal and Justice Saurabh Lavania was hearing a Writ petition, filed by one Dr. Syed Rizwan Ahmed, seeking a direction upon the respondent Nos.1 (Union Of India Thru Secy. Ministry Of Home Affairs) and 2 to organize public awareness campaigns by way of hoardings and releasing informatory audio and visual programmes to educate the public regarding sexual violence and the laws on the issue related to crimes against women and laws of 13th Criminal Law Amendment Act. The petitioner had approached the Court after preferring the representation, on which the letter dated 04.09.2018 was issued to Joint Secretary (Judicial) C S Division, Ministry of Home Affairs thereby requesting to take appropriate steps in the matter in issue.
