‘We direct..’: How SC granted visa relief to blacklisted Tablighi Jamaat members

Published on May 13, 2022 07:35 AM IST

Supreme Court has allowed the foreigners blacklisted by India for participating in the Talbligh Jamaat activities a fresh chance to apply for visa and directed the Centre to consider their applications uninfluenced by the blacklisting orders. The petitioners were aggrieved by the April 2, 2020, decision of the ministry of home affairs (MHA) to blacklist 960 foreigners of 35 countries. They were not allowed to travel to India for the next 10 years. Two months later, MHA directed lodging of criminal prosecution against 2,500 foreigners for their participation in Tablighi Jamaat event and directed states and Union Territories to register FIRs against them.
