Justice Gupta says, "I will also add Dissent in Judiciary... To have a strong democracy, a fearless judiciary is important"

Justice Gupta: Just because you hold a contrarian view, does not mean you are anti-national or disrespect the country. You may disagree with the government, may not go against the country. There is a difference between the country and its government

1. The three Judge Bench headed by the Hon’ble CJI Shri S A Bobde clarified that in view of the questions raised in the Review Verdict in the #Sabarimala case, the balance of convenience lies in favour of the practice of the Temple which has existed for over a 1000 years.
2. The CJI observed that while it could be argued that there is no stay of the 2018 verdict, the Court is exercising its discretion to not pass orders allowing entry until questions raised in the Review Verdict are finally decided by a larger Bench.
3. The CJI also observed that the majority view in the Review Verdict deemed it fit to entertain the Review Petitions as well as refer to a larger Bench since the 2018 verdict merits reconsideration.

If there is no ban on meat, ban on animal sacrifice is illogical.

It is ok to slaughter an animal callously for meat but not ok to do it reverentially?

The aim is clear—to kill a native practice while mass slaughter by the meat industry and on #Bakrid goes unchallenged.
The Tripura ban is simply one more Church attack on native traditions at par with #jallikattu and #Sabarimala. This must be reversed.

Hindu dharma has a diversity of practices. Enforcing one model is an Abrahamic commandment based idea. Respect different traditions.

1. I had heard about #Sabarimala and Ayappa Swami when I was in school. But never knew much, or cared, except that some people took some kind of vow, wear a black dress for a few days before going to Sabarimala on pilgrimage. #SaveOurSabarimala
2. Even though as I grew up, I came to know more about them, there was never any kind of affinity as such. It was in 2015, which marked a turning point in my life on many counts: personal and professional, & it was then that I truly became emotionally connected to Ayappa Swami.
3. It was a time when the Sabarimala issue was taken to the court and there were all kinds of media narratives. We had Right-to-bleed movements of feminists and in response, we got the Ready-to-wait movement by @IchBinGorg and team. #SaveOurSabarimala

As we are nearing the 1st anniversary of the great resistance put up by Hindus in #Sabarimala, I have decided to put out a thread to make people know abt the unsung heroes who had a greater role to play in defending the sanctity of Ayyappa's abode.
After the success of #ReadytoWait movement in social media, prominent members of the movement in @kuvalayamala and @shilpamdas decided to join the Supreme court case for showing the perspective of Ayyappa devotees
.@Kuvalayamala who was a good friend of mine for about a year at that point of time approached me for help in joining the case. As a result, @Ravilochanan86 and myself brought together a group of like minded indivduals and formed @People4Dharma

This we, in Kerala saw in run to last parliament elections. His book, 'Why I am a Hindu' and the @INCIndia projecting @RahulGandhi as Janeu-Dhari Hindu were not coincidental (3/n)
We have seen his flip-flops before. A good example was #Sabarimala Women Entry Issue. Note, what he said in 2010:…

He then said that "there is nothing sacrosanct about social practices...

📌#Thread about #Sabrimala and myths.
Real history of sabrimala.
Lord Shiva & Mohini had a child named Dharmashasta.
He ws born to fulfil the boon that Mahishi had acquired from Lord Brahma that only a son of both Shiva & Vishnu can kill her.
2. His name and the story of His birth is explained in detail in the Bhagavata Purana.
Dharmashasta manifested Himself in various forms - as Aiyyanar, as Ayyappan, and as Himself. Prince Manikantan of Pandalam (Sabarimala Ayyappan) was the specific avatar He took to kill Mahishi.
3. So while Dharmashasta finds a mention in the Puranas, it is unlikely that Ayyappa would also be mentioned as Ayyappa’s birth happened many years after the Puranas were composed.

Watched Schindler's List last night. Can't stop thinking abt the History & Litt prof who's called "not essential" at the Jews camp.
The maid who can't prevent being killed even by following rules.
Schindler's failed attempt at convincing a murderous Commander "mercy is power"
Can't stop thinking abt the initial disbelief, even among Jews in captivity, abt gas chambers.
Can't stop thinking abt our own disbelief that govts can orchestrate mass exclusions & racist murders - "they mean nothing to him" - even when we see it over and over across the world
It begins with 'small' discriminatory laws: XYZ can't own businesses, Rohingyas can't join army/be civil servants, Sri Lankan Tamils need to score more marks than Sinhalese to be doctors.
Those it doesn't affect shrug it off.

5 Million Hindus r supposed 2b caged4 their belief in Ayyappa Swamiye by anglo-jurisprudence of 'British sense of equality' using @BDUTT 2006 article as alibi & spurning religious belief of silent women majority is new normal for few "tukde-tukde" agents disguised as 'activists'
@BDUTT State is the biggest proselytizer misinterpreting 'Article 26' to every religious minorities who says 'I'm not a Hindu' & only Hindu educational Institutions r under state control misusing Article 15(5), 28(1) & 30(1). Borrowed anglo juris prudence of Thomas Babington Macaulay..

3. Mr. Parasaran submits that while Justice Chandrachud and Justice Nariman dealt with Article 15, the former Chief Justice and Justice Khanwilkar did not refer to Article 15. Therefore, he submits there is no majority opinion.

I got this complete list with names, phone numbers and addresses of 51 women aged 10-50 years who, #Kerala govt claims, entered #Sabarimala temple Friday afternoon. Two points on this: a) Why is the state's @cpimspeak govt leaking such details to the local media?... 1/n
2/n: Shouldn't the government be held responsible for such an act? Whether these women are 10-50 yrs old or actually even visited the temple is still a secondary issue. Leaking such lists puts them/ their everyday lives in danger.
3/n: I randomly called 2 phone numbers on the #Sabarimala women list leaked by #Kerala govt. In both the cases the individuals claimed they were over 50 years. In one case, 59 yrs and 50+yrs in the other - when both of them were listed in 40-50 yr age group. #electionsarecoming
