Counsel: Law commission has said that UCC is desired but not necessary.
CJI: To what extend can we utilise our writ jurisdiction and pass these kind of writs?
#UCC #SupremeCourtOfIndia Image
CJI: You are asking for a mandamus on a law to be enacted in a certain manner. We compliment you, this is good research but we cannot entertain this.
#UCC #SupremeCourtOfIndia
CJI: As an when the matters come up, we'll certainly consider it. But this we cannot. If you're writing your research and law commission is going in one direction and Narasu Appa Mali says something, the law commission's report is completely shaky.

Justice Maheshwari: Qualified to be an advocate is one thing, the right to practice is another, which follows the first.

Allowing girls to wear hijab to school may be viewed as an opportunity for children to learn about India's "diversity", the #SupremeCourtOfIndia says.

Do children of yesteryears (today's adults) have no idea of diversity, as they didn't witness this circus in their classrooms?
Foresee the cascading effect if this observation shapes the verdict. Different groups will demand their respective attires be accepted in school. The argument that their scriptures don't mandate it won't hold because that was not the basis in the #hijab case either.
The advocates of #hijab furthered frivolous arguments like ghoonghat, which no Hindu scripture demands.

If the SCI's own interjection, asking whether the right to dress included that to undress, was serious, will a Jarawa child be allowed to come to school naked?
