Unlawful Assembly

According to section 141 PPC

An unlawful assembly is a gathering of three or more people who have the intent to commit a crime or engage in violent or tumultuous behavior that puts others in fear of their safety or results in the destruction of property. This type of assembly is prohibited by law and is considered a criminal offense in many jurisdictions.

The specific laws regarding unlawful assembly vary by country and region, but generally, law enforcement authorities have the power to disperse an unlawful assembly and arrest its participants. In some cases, participants in an unlawful assembly may face charges such as disturbing the peace, inciting a riot, or conspiracy to commit a crime.

It is important to note that peaceful protests and demonstrations, as protected by the right to free speech and assembly, are not considered unlawful assemblies. However, if such events turn violent or destructive, they may be considered unlawful assemblies and participants may be subject to legal consequences.
