New Delhi, Jun 28 (ILNS) The Supreme Court today refused to hear a petition, seeking directions to protect the fundamental rights of people of district Mewat-Nuh, as they are being “forcefully converted to Islam,” saying that it will not entertain a PIL based on Newspaper reports.
A three-Judge Bench of Chief Justice NV Ramana and Justices AS Bopanna and Hrishikesh Roy refused to hear the PIL, filed by Advocate Ranjana Agnihotri and said, “We are sorry that we can’t entertain this PIL, based on newspaper reports.”

The petitioner demanded CBI inquiry into the rape of Hindu women and minor girls, the encroachment made on public land, the conditions of temples, religious places, and cremation grounds existing there, and the role of concerned officers and police and slackness committed by them in the discharge of their official duty.
The petitioner also sought deployment of paramilitary forces in District Nuh Mewat to protect life and liberty of citizens. Other issues raised by the petitioner is to rehabilitate the exodus Hindus at their respective properties, to nullify all sale deeds executed by Hindus in favour of Muslims in last 10 years under coercion and undue influence on them.
The PIL sought that all the temples, places of worship, and cremation grounds should be restored in their original forms in the area and to issue directions to investigate and take action on the FIR lodged by the Hindu community relating to murder, rape/ gang rapes, kidnapping, abduction, molestation, and House trespass. The investigation should be made in all the cases relating to murder, rape/gang rapes, kidnapping, abduction, molestation, and House trespass on the basis of the complaint being made by the victims.
The Supreme court dismissed the petition saying we will not entertain any petition on the basis of Newspaper Reports.ILNS/KR/SNG
