Mumbai:  The Bombay High Court has granted conditional permission to Pakistani-born Canadian Islamic scholar Maulana Tahirul Qadri to hold public meetings in the city, an official said Thursday.

Justice VM Kanade and Justice PD Kode directed that the maulana must restrict his speeches only to spiritual and religious matters and not digress to any other controversial issue, said Imtiyaz Patel, counsel for Raza Academy, a group of Muslim scholars.

Raza Academy filed a Public Interest Litigation (PIL) in the court on Wednesday challenging Qadri's plans to address two major public meetings in Mumbai, contending that his speeches could pose law and order situation.

"The court has further directed the police to submit tape records, written and translated copies of Qadri's speech to the court tomorrow," Patel told IANS.
