It appears that for women in India, the modern judiciary is fading and in its place, the terrifying face of Brahmanical Dandaneethi is emerging.

    Lately the SC and other HCs are increasingly feeding to the hunger is obscurantist part of Indian population by :
    Ordering National anthem to be compulsorily played in tneatres( as if people will suddenly turn patriotic and the nation will forget divisions on the basis of caste, religion , region , language etc by just singing anthem;
    Denying solace to rape victims or allowing rapist to go on bail so that he can maimor buy or kill the witnesses,
    Not allowing a little girl, victim of rape, abortion or
    Not allowing an adult to go with her lover of her own will,
    Again this order mad observation that a girl needs parent is equally obscurantist in its tone.
    ARE THE ENTIRE INDIAN PUBLIC AND INSTITUTIONS GOING TO OTHER UNDEVELOPED SOCIETIES’ WAY IN MATTERS OF SOCIAL DEVELOPMENT AND INDIVIDUAL FREEDOMS?

    Judiciary and judicial system is falling a prey to the onslaught of brahminical manusmriti and verdicts are increasingly going against women, dalits, muslims and marginalised sections including tribals, adivasis, maoists and human rights activists. Judicial system is beginning to openly favour corporates, ruling class and ruling right wing. Unless drastic steps are taken, justice may be delayed and denied to large section of masses
