Supreme Court Orders for Removal of “Masjid High Court” from Allahabad High Court Premises

Upholding the decision of the Allahabad High Court (‘AHC’) to remove the “Masjid High Court” from its premises, the Hon’ble Supreme Court (‘SC’) held that the mosque is present on government land on lease, canceled in 2002 and returned to the AHC for expansion purposes in 2004. The SC gave three months for execution of its order failing which the authorities of AHC were to take appropriate steps for removal or demolition.
