Demand for Tamil as official court language not illegal: Madras High Court allows Madurai lawyer to go on fast till demand is met

Justice N Anand Venkatesh permitted a lawyer to go on an ‘indefinite fast’ from February 24 till such demand is met.

The Court directed the Chennai Police Commissioner to permit lawyer G Bhagavath Singh to sit on an indefinite fast at the Rajarathinam Stadium in Egmore on the condition that there would be no law and order problems or instances of violence due to such fast.

“The petitioner wants to express himself strongly demanding Tamil to be used as official language in the proceedings in the High Court. There is nothing illegal in this objective. Hence, permission can be granted subject to the following conditions,” Justice Venkatesh said.
