'Govt can't curtail rights of minority institutions'

A bench of Justices G S Singhvi and A K  Ganguly said: “It would be monstrous absurdity if in a well-organised government no remedy is provided to a person who has a clear and undeniable right. 

 “Where a man has a ‘jus ad rem’ (a right to a thing), it will be absurd, ridiculous and shame to the law, if courts have no remedy, and the only remedy he can have is by mandamus.”

The apex court was hearing the Cannanore District Muslim Educational Association’s plea against the Kerala High Court order in favour of the Kerala government decision not to permit the association to run higher secondary courses, post the 1997 enactment of Pre-Degree Courses (Abolition) Act.
