Supreme court to hear petitions of foreign nationals on June 29

Supreme court has decided today to hear the plea on June 29 of the foreign nationals who were blacklisted by the Indian government.
The Thai women have challenged the order that came on April 2 and June 4.
According to it, the Government blacklisted 2500 foreign nationals from 35 countries because they were alleged to be involved in Tablighi jamaat activities. The bench of Justices A.M. Khanwilkar and Dinesh Maheshwari will hear the plea.
The foreign nationals argue that they have not been given a chance to be heard at any place and have been blacklisted. This has infringed their right of locomotion and they are unable to go back to their place of nationality. In addition to it, the petitioners say it has resulted in the violation of article 21 (protection of life and liberty) of the Constitution.
