New Delhi: The Supreme Court on Monday asked the Central Government to consider a plea seeking a ban on hoisting of green flags with crescent and star at buildings and religious places.

A bench headed by Justice AK Sikri requested Additional Solicitor General Tushar Mehta to seek instructions from the competent officials in the ministries concerned.

The Court will take up the petition after two weeks now.

The PIL has been filed by Syed Waseem Rizvi, the chairman of Uttar Pradesh Shia Central Board of Waqfs.

He has claimed that during his visit to Mumbai and other places in India, he saw flags on several buildings and religious structures which were allegedly a cause of tension between Hindu and Muslim communities.

The petition has sought a ban on hoisting of green flags with crescent and star terming it "un-Islamic" and claiming that it resembled the flag of the Pakistan Muslim League which belongs to the "enemy country".
