The Calcutta High Court Monday refused to grant an urgent hearing to a public interest litigation seeking orders against the use of drums during the celebration of Muharram festival. .A bench of Chief Justice TS Sivagnanam and Justice Hiranmay Bhattacharyya noted that as per the causelist of the High Court for the month of July, the petition was placed as item number 856. "From last few weeks we are only hearing election matters and we are unable to hear cases beyond serial number 5 of daily board. Your matter is at 856, we cannot upgrade the board (grant urgent hearing)," the bench said. .To this, the woman advocate, who mentioned the matter, urged the bench to consider upgrading the list so as to hear her case. "Milords, every year this has become unbearable. From morning till late night there is continuous drum beating owing to young boys and men. We can't even say anything to them. This happens every year at least 15 days prior to Muharram," the advocate highlighted. .The bench, however, did not accede to the request for urgent listing. "We can't grant an urgent hearing," the bench said. "But Muharram is on July 29. They will start noise pollution from July 10," it was submitted."Let's see. If we reach your matter (item no. 869) in the monthly list, will consider. Else we cannot upgrade the list," the Court said.
