#Sabarimala: Kerala govt says I am not allowed into the temple, Colin Gonsalves tells SC on behalf of Rehna Fathima.

The practice has been going on for 1000s of years. Balance of convenience requires that such an order should not be passed in your favour today, CJ SA Bobde.
#Sabarimala: If matter is decided in your favour, then we will certainly pass an order, remarks CJI SA Bobde.
#Sabarimala: "We are all opposed to violence. We domt engender violence", responds Sr Counsel India Jaising to the remarks of the bench that there is possibility of violence.
#Sabarimala: "Law is in your favour. We know that", CJI SA Bobde.

"The order in review petitions does not operate as a stay", Jaising.

"Of course it does not. ", Bobde J agrees.

"But it is an emotive issue. Be a little patient", CJI Bobde adds.
#Sabarimala: Sr. Counsel Indira Jaising says then review petitions should be listed at the earliest.

CJI Bobde says he will endeavour to constitute a Bench at the earliest after the 7-judge bench decides the petitions on rights of Muslim and Parsi women.
#Sabarimala: The earlier order of SC granting police protection to Bindu will continue. Rehna Fathima will also be provided such protection if she applies. (This protection is not for entry to temple but a protection extended considering threat to the petitioners)
#Sabarimala: So CJI Bobde bench acknowledges there is no stay on Sept 2018 constitution bench judgment yet no coercive orders will be passed to allow entry of women.

Interesting that in another court justice Rohinton Nariman had pulled up govt for not implementing the judgment

Supreme Court raises grave concerns about the manner in which debates are conducted by certain television channels.

Justice KM Joseph says many times panellists are not allowed to speak and anchor takes up most of the time and panellists are also half-muted.
Supreme Court berates Sudarshan news.

Here is one anchor who says one particular community is trying to gain access to UPSC. Can anything be more insidious than such claims. Such allegations affect stability of country and also casts aspersions on credibility of exam.
In the UPSC exam, all are subject to same tests, interviews and are assessed by same persons. But the insinuation is one community is trying to infiltrate the UPSC. Can such allegations without factual basis be allowed, asks Justice DY Chandrachud?
