Break The Seal: Let us All Worship Lord Ayyappa

Sabrimala: Lord Ayyappa

Well even before starting with the Sabarimala case, let us be aware of the fact the Indian society is a gender biased society and there are many places or worship where still the entry of women is not allowed.

One such temple was of Lord Ayyappa, a shrine in Kerela. It is one of the most famous pilgrimage sites for the Hindus in India. There are thousands who frequent this holy shrine every year and for this, they need to do some rituals.

Women from the age group of 10 to 50 (menstruating age) are not allowed in the temple as they are considered as impure.

It is considered that Lord Ayyappa followed celibacy all throughout his life. Therefore ban in the entry of women in the menstruating age as it would disturb the celibacy of the Lord.

However in the year 2018, in a bench of five from the apex court of the country, the rule was passed whereby women from the age group of 10 to 50 were to be allowed in the temple. This issue was raised way back in 1991 when Kerela High Court ruled that entry of women in this temple was an immemorial tradition and it was not discrimination as per the Constitution.

The ban was again challenged in the year 2006 and the probation was considered a violation of the constitutional right, Right to Equality and religious freedom.

The apex court on October 2017 referred this issue to the constitution bench framing five ‘significant’ questions and whether the practice of banning the entry of women in the temple as discrimination and it violated the fundamental rights that have been bestowed on them by the constitution.

A bench of 5 judges headed by Chief Justice Dipak Misra was hearing the matter and in the last working week of the Chief Justice came the historic judgment whereby the age-old tradition of banning the entry of women in the temple was ruled out.

The state government has had been changing its views on the entry of women in the temple and has finally agreed to the entry of women in the temple.

The apex court while hearing the case made a statement as follows”   

When a man can enter, a woman can also go. What applies to a man, applies to a woman also,” the bench also comprising justices R F Nariman, A M Khanwilkar, D Y Chandrachud, and Indu Malhotra observed.

“The right to enter a temple is not dependent on legislation. It is the constitutional right,” it had said.

There was immense pleasure amongst the female devotees as they were granted the permission however the protestors left no stone unturned to let not the female devotees from entering the temple.

There have been attempts made by female devotees but in spite of their continuous effort of trying to just get blessings of the Lord, they could not succeed.

The state government has failed to let the female devotes in the temple due to the aggressive protests made by the protestors. 26 Wednesday the temple closes as it marks the end of the Mandalam festival and in spite of the apex court supporting the female entry it could not happen.

Satyamev Jayate: Six Judgments By Supreme Court in 2018 That Make us Believe That Law is Supreme

Six Judgments By Supreme Court in 2018 That Make us Believe That Law is Supreme

2018 was a dynamic year and has brought several dynamic changes in our life and for this, we cannot thank enough the esteemed learned judges of the country. It was a year that has seen the beginning of many new things and has set the society as a progressive one. The Aadhar system got clarity and a section of society that had no recognition got validity from the landmark judgment of Section 377.

Here are the six judgments from the Supreme Court that restores our firm belief in the judiciary system of the nation:

1. The Constitutional Validity of The Aadhaar Card

The Apex Court, on its Dember 6, the judgment said that Aadhar is constitutional but making it is mandatory for availing Government services was unconstitutional.

Telecom companies, banks cannot make it mandatory for the users to link their Aadhar with their mobile phones or bank accounts. Still, the linking of Pan card and Aadhar is compulsory.

2. Section 377 struck down

On September 6, the Supreme Court made a historic judgment and decriminalized homosexuality. The ruling again looked into the judgment of 2013 and upheld a colonial law known as Section 377 of the Indian Penal Court (IPC) as per this homosexuality was considered as an ‘unnatural law’.

This historic judgment now allows the homosexuals to live as equal citizens in India and no one can harass them on the ground of their sexual orientation. However, section 377 will still be valid in case of unnatural sex with children and animal.

3. Adultery is not a crime

In another historic judgment by the Supreme Court, it has scrapped Section 497(Adultery) of the IPC and had made adultery by men a punishable offense. The order has considered 158 years old law as unconstitutional as it was contradicting with Article 21( Right to life and personal liberty) and Article 14(Right to equality).

Also the other two sections 198(1) and 198(2) of the CrPC as unconstitutional for letting a husband to put charges on the man with whom his wife had committed adultery.

The Supreme Court also made it clear that adultery would be ground for civil issues including dissolution of marriage, it could not be a dissolution of marriage.

4. Women can enter Sabarimala

“Devotion cannot be subjected to gender discrimination”, Supreme Court. The Apex court in a 4-1 verdict has removed the ban from the woman between the age of 10 to 50 from entering Kerala’s Sabarimala temple.

Four out of five of the Bench were in support of women for entering the temple. However, the final verdict was in favor of women.

5. Passive Euthanasia Allowed

The court has made it legal that the terminally ill patients can deny the use of life support system and opts for euthanasia. The court has made the judgment taking into account the suffering of the patient and let the families of such patients in an incurable coma to withdraw such measures.

This is done to smoothen the process of death for the patients who are terminally ill and have no chances of recovery.

6. Live stream of the Court Proceedings

On the 26th of September, the Supreme Court made a diligent effort in making the legal proceeding very transparent and allowed live-streaming during the proceedings of the court.

The Supreme Court bench headed by Chief Justice Dipak Misra said, “Sunlight is the best disinfectant”. This will bring about more of accountability in the working of courts.

34 Years to The Bhopal Gas Tragedy and The Survivors Still Waiting For Justice

34 Year to Bhopal Gas Tragedy

The gas tragedy of Bhopal is still fresh in our minds like it happened just yesterday. The gas tragedy took us all by a storm and the people who were a part of this tragedy were shattered, for those who survived and for those who did not, we hope they are at peace. The tragedy shook the entire nation for it was one of the biggest humans caused disaster in the world and devastated the city like never before.

Not only the company was destroyed overall, but the people who worked there, or were there at that moment, were also left with nothing else.

The government promised a lot of compensation for the company as well as the people who suffered. However, even after a number of years, the remuneration and the compensation which was meant to be given by the government was not given at all.

They were not even delivered the remuneration that was promised. It has been thirty-four years, and people who have suffered and survived are still waiting for something to happen. The victims of the tragedy are even struggling for compensation and infrastructure and have got none.

Neither the state government of Madhya Pradesh and not even the contra government of the country provided any of the compensations that were promised by both of them to the victims. They have been waiting for almost 34 years and they have all that got is nothing. The scenario and the attitude the government shows towards such situations is beyond acceptance.

It has been a number of years and the promised remuneration and compensation does not get delivered to the pope who has nothing but the government to look forward to. It is not only highly disappointing but also makes us wonder as to what type of democracy is prevailing in the country what do we people think before electing government when all the governments are of this kind only.

Around three thousand people had died in this situation and there has been nothing done about their families and children. No compensation has yet come. Almost as more than one lakh, people had one and even of them, the government has done nothing.

The servers demanded money so that they could start living their life gain and building themselves again where they were left with nothing but all the government gave was sympathy.

The survivors have not recited anything. A lot of NGOs have been supporting this cause, Ut from the side of the government, not even a single penny has come for the poorly hurt. Even after a lot of o support, it was the duty of the governments both state and the central to provide compensation which they have not.

Are we choosing the right method and analogy to choose our government or are we going wrong anywhere? It has become impossible for a country like India to get government misunderstands the issue so far it’s people their own.
