This #InternationalWomensDay2022 let’s revisit the progressive judgments of the Indian Courts reaffirming the rights of the women and providing them better protection of the law.

#ICLU celebrates 21 judgments of the #SupremeCourt on this #WomensDay
1. The Apex Court providing for detailed guidelines for safety of women at workplace in Vishakha & Ors. v. State of Rajasthan & Ors. (1997) directed employers to provide a mechanism for redressal of grievances of employees. (1/2)
These guidelines were eventually formalised as legislation with the passing of the Sexual Harrasment of Women at Workplace (Prevention, Prohibition and Redressal) Act, 2013. (2/2)

It’s #MakarSankranti! Everywhere in India, Jaggery or sesame is the theme. 😊

It’s believed— if you eat til(sesame) and gud(Jaggery) now, you will not suffer from arthritis later in life.

In Kerala, it’s time for the auspicious Makara-vilakku at #Sabrimala. 🙏
2/4
Makar is sign of Capricorn, sankranti means transmigration of sun from 1 sign to another, in this case Capricorn.

This sign is ruled by Sun’s bette-noire Saturn. Both the heavenly bodies oppose each other. Hence you must go out and bask in sunshine.
Kite flying anyone? 😊

There are other Sankrantis too, for example Mesha Sankranti when Sun enters Aries, and is considered Hindu new year—April 14/15 each yr.
In Kerala we celebrate it as Vishu.

Ancient #Sanatani were aware that any change in our sky, impacted our lives.

Remember KP Yohanan?
Man behind #Sabrimala & whose NGO ws exposed in recent IT crackdown?
KP cld be connected to "killing" of Malayali journo, SV Pradeep--a man who hd crossed swords with Kerala CM & every Political party.
I hope central agency @NIA_India is aware of it.
2/8
SV Pradeep hd exposed a huge racket-- which he called the COFFIN racket (shava petti racket in malayalam). He apparently hd proof that KP's organisations wr running 20-25 crematories, and that the bodies turned into ashes in these places, wr UNACCOUNTED for.
But y?
3/8
SV pradeep ws killed in a hit & run case, on 15th Dec 2020.
This journo hd locked horns with almost every POLITICAL party in Kerala. He ws known for being one of the most brusque journalists in Kerala.
Bt he hd hurt commies & KP the most, with his reports.

Video of #Sabrimala, reopening.
~2018,Nov—v wr fought to protect Sabrimala.
~2019,Nov—#Ayodhya verdict happened.
~2020–ppl involved in desecrating the temple r incarcerated.

I’ve lots more to say bt we believe Sri Ayappa Swami controls Saturn/lord of #Karma so let it be. 😊
In Kerala, anyone with shani (Saturn) dasha is advised to visit Ayappa temples & consume sesame seeds (hs iron & calcium). Apparently, Saturn dasha impacts calcium level jn our body, that’s why its associated with Bones & Teeth. Interesting nooh?
Correction: v fought* to protect.

Sr adv CU Singh, Rajeev Dhavan, Karuna Nundy also appear for #HarshMander. SG Mehta objects to so many lawyers arguing for one client.

Dhavan says there can't be a suo motu contempt against Mander on a mere mentioning by someone.

He points out how #SupremeCourt, in 2 judgments on Right to Privacy & in Navtej Johar case, overruled the views of a 2-judge bench in a distinct case, Naz Foun
The #SupremeCourt is today dealing with the issue whether the issue could have been referred to the 9-judge bench while deciding a review petition.

Mehta says justice is important, not the technicalities & that this court has done it in the past as well.

#Faith Vs #RightToPray
Sr adv Fali S Nariman oppose order of reference in the #Sabrimala review case. He says scope of a review petition is very limited & that it can't mean continuation of the original proceedings. Nariman adds then #CJI Gogoi's order wasn't an administrative order but a judicial one

#Sabrimala women's entry matter in #SupremeCourt: #CJI observes that the 2018 judgment wasn't the last word and that since the matter has been referred to a larger bench, everyone should wait.
The bench further remarks that the balance of convenience is that no order on women's entry is passed today.

"Some issues in this country become explosive and this is one of those issues. Let us take a call when a larger bench sits..Police in a temple isn't out idea".
#Sabrimala
Sr adv Indira Jaising argues for Bindu, arguing the law is clear there has to be specific order of stay.

#CJI retorts that the law might be in her favour but the reality is that the subject is very emotive. "We are exercising our discretion not to pass any order today."

What happens when women defy patriarchy: Violent protests have paralysed southern Indian state of #Kerala after 2 women made history by entering a prominent Hindu temple.
One person was killed in clashes. Schools are closed & public transport suspended. bbc.com/news/world-asi…
The #Sabarimala temple was historically closed to women of "menstruating age" - defined as between 10 and 50.
The Supreme Court revoked the ban in September. On Wednesday, Bindu Ammini, 40, and Kanaka Durga, 39, entered the shrine around dawn and became the first women to do so.
The day before the two women made history by entering #Sabarimala temple, #Kerala had a historic protest for gender equality and against right-wing groups who oppose the Supreme Court’s lifting of the ban on women

Zainul Ansari, an 80 yr old non hindu, hacked to death, then burned in public by the #hindutvaterrorists.
Thread on that and on the role of Sitamadi's SP Vikas Burman:
19/20 October, 2018. Sitamani, Bihar.
The police laid out all routes for the procession of Durga Pooja. But it got hacked by the #Hindutva who forcefully took it through Madhuvan, a muslim dominated area.
After the 1992 riots, few areas of Sitamani are considered extremely sensitive, and hence, taking religious processions through them is not allowed by the police. Madhuvan is one of those areas. Still, the #hindutvaterrorists forced their way in.

Today I will try to explain to the best of my knowledge the conspiracy behind #Sabarimala. Before going into conspiracy some baics of Hindu religion, the importance of Deity, rules to follow.
👉Before Murti of any Deity is installed Pranpratista ritual is done. that is Avahan (requesting) the God to reside in the Murti. their is shashtra specified procedure for it.
👉How many Hindus knew the process by which Pranprista is complete n Devta has entered the Murti.
👉For confimation of success of Pranpritista a big mirror covering entire area over the entrance of Gribhagruha is installed. mirror placed in such a way that complete Murti will be visible in it.
