On 13th July 2020, the Supreme Court rejected the plea to entertain the matter of Amarnath Yatra. A constitutional bench comprising Justice DY Chandrachud, Indu Malhotra, and KM Joseph are having the view that the belief filed to stop Amarnath Yatra under article 32 of the constitution of India is inappropriate. The bench left this matter for local administration to decide whether to stop the Amarnath Yatra due to the risk of COVID-19 or not and the court has also shown their regard for the principle of 'separation of power'. The petition was filed by an organization Shri Amarnath barfani langar organization (SABLO) old Amarnath Yatra am the COVID-19.
Albeit the senior advocate of petitioner Devadatt Kamat presented that following the norms such as physical distancing, wearing a mask and others would not be possible to prevent the transmission of COVID-19 during Yatra. He also said that the condition is not favorable for Yatra as India has about 9,00,000 active COVID cases. He also pointed out Article 25 of the Constitution of India which states that the person has the right to religion subject to health. So, he prayed that the Hon'ble Supreme court should intervene to stop Amarnath Yatra. But the court held that the matter of Amarnath Yatra should be decided by local administration but the decision should be based on the law. After this, Shri Amarnathji Shrine Board (SASB) is planning to undertake the Yatra for 15 days probably from the last week of July.
