Allahabad High Court on 1 September 2015 asked Uttar Pradesh government to ensure flag hoisting ceremony of National Flag on Independence Day and Republic Day in Madarsas and other schools all over the state.
A bench comprising Chief Justice DY Chandrachud and Justice Yashwant Verma passed the order on a Public Interest Litigation (PIL) filed by Arun Gaur, a resident of Aligarh.
The petitioner prayed the court to issue directions to ensure that the flag hoisting ceremony is held at madrassas on 15 August and 26 January in the same manner as done at the offices of various bodies controlled or assisted by the government.
The court directed the state government to issue necessary directions in this regard. It also asked the state government to file its counter-affidavit on the PIL and fixed 22 September 2015 as the next date of hearing.
