The Supreme Court Monday categorically said it cannot direct the state legislature of Jammu and Kashmir to legislate for formation of minority commission for the state and asked the Centre to “deliberate” on it, Livelaw.in reported.  
 
“How can we ask or direct the state legislature to legislate in a particular manner.The Centre says they will deliberate on it and get back to this court”, Chief Justice Dipak Misra heading a three judge bench told Ankur Sharma, the petitioner who is a Jammu-based lawyer. 
 
“We can’t issue any direction on a subject like this..it’s up to them”, the CJI said.
