हिंदुस्तान में एक तरफ बाल विवाह जैसी पिछड़ी, थकी हुई पुरानी सोच को भी मुस्लिम पर्सनल ला के नाम पर चालू रखा गया है और दूसरी तरफ आप इतने खुले विचारों के हो गये हैं कि एक पुरुष भी अपने आप को एक महिला मान सकता है।

इस तरह की बातों का आधार क्या है…

भारत में दो अलग-अलग तरह (1/2)
के कानून क्यूँ?

मतलब एक फ़ैसले को देख कर लगता है कि हम तालिबान से भी पीछे हैं न्याय के मामले में और दूसरी तरफ का रिमार्क सुन कर लगता है कि हम यूरोप से भी आगे निकल गये हैं खुलेपन में…?

तय आप कीजिए…!!!

On Wednesday, I perused the proceedings in the Supreme Court, as regards Shiv Sena's matter..

I must say, I was shocked to observe #CJI J. Chandrachud's aggressive questioning against then Governor of Maharashtra..

He appeared to be more angrier on the Governor than Uddhav Thackrey himself, for fall of #MVA govt.

To me, it appeared as if, his sympathy rests with Uddhav Thackrey.

Through this thread wherein, I will post screen shots of court's proceedings and analysis.

*Background of the crisis*

From around 22nd June, Shiv Sainiks started destroying, properties of rebel MLAs as well as the independent MLAs who withdrew support to Uddhav Thackrey government..The instigation for this violence was made by Sanjay Raut, trouble shooter of UT.

Office held by constitutional

A division of Chief Justice Satish Chandra Sharma and Justice Subramonium Prasad says that while wishful thinking is not a prohibited activity, but when it forms part of the grounds of a petition before the court, it amounts to an abuse of the process of the court.
The PIL by one Sanjeev Kumar Tiwari, president of an organisation named Gram Uday Foundation had made several unsubstantiated allegations against Justice Chandrachud. The High had imposed a cost of Rs 1 lakh on the petitioner.
