The Supreme Court has issued notice on a plea for a re-examination of its January 6, 2020 judgment declaring that the State is well within its rights to regulate the appointment of teachers to minority-run institutions in “national interest.”

Appearing before a three-judge Bench led by Chief Justice of India Sharad A. Bobde, senior advocate Rajeev Dhavan, representing the Managing Committee, Contai High Madrasah, said the judgment “dismantles” the law laid down by an 11-judge Bench of the Supreme Court in the T.M.A. Pai case of 2002.

The 2002 judgment had held that minorities have a fundamental right under Article 30 of the Constitution to administer their institutions and appoint teachers.
