The United States Supreme Court on Monday ruled in favour of President Donald Trump and reinstated his 90-day travel ban order for visitors coming from six Muslim majority countries. According to an AP report, the Court overruled earlier orders issued by lower courts blocking the ban.

Last week, Trump had said that the ban will come into effect in 72 hours after being cleared by the courts. If the ban comes into effect, Trump administration will be able to bar visitors from Iran, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria, and Yemen to enter United States for 90 days.

According to an AFP report, the ban will apply to those “who lack any bona fide relationship with a person or entity in the United States.”

The court will hear the case in next session which will take place in October. The order is being seen as a big victory for the Trump administration as it was earlier blocked by two Federal Courts. Trump had raised the issue of travel ban extensively during his presidential campaign linking it with the issue of terrorism.

    How could Syria, Afghanistan, Iraq, North Korea "ban" the biggest intruders from entering their country without permission. In the past Yugoslavia, Vietnam couldn't prevent getting their country ravaged..

      It is time that moderate, sane and educated Muslims started speaking out against all forms of Islamist terrorists. And this too loudly, rather than cower from murderers, otherwise they too will suffer needlessly.

          That will never happen because American administration is not a brainwashed monkey like you which has been taught a myopic view of the world by the Hindustani state.

            Alright you Pakistani. How come your own people are subject to terror daily. There is no rule of law in Pakistan. It is a failed state. The Army is in control. You have guts to voice your opinion in Indian Express but I con't do the same in Dawn.

              It's pure politics. I support Muslim ban, but why don't you block Pakistan which is biggest culprit. USA sided with SA to block Qatar, but every body knows SA is the biggest supporter and fund provider for radical Islamic ideology. Our fight against Islamic terrorism is being diverted.

                  US govt or Trump wants to fight with terrorism? Or want to use it to control oil from that region? There are 52 muslim countries so far and why not Pakistan in this list even if Osama found there? Why this is bias?

                    Muslims are second largest in ppulation in World. So banning some countries does not make any sense. People cannot live without communicating with Muslims.
