Recap To The Historic Judgments BY Supreme Court This Year That Changed Our Lives
Lifting Ban On Entry Of Women Inside Sabarimala Temple
Putting an end to a centuries-old tradition, the Supreme Court ruled that women, irrespective of age, can enter Kerala’s Sabarimala temple. A five-judge Constitution bench, headed by Chief Justice of India Dipak Misra, said that the provision in the Kerala Hindu Places of Public Worship (Authorisation of Entry) Rules, 1965, which authorized the restriction, violated the right of Hindu women to practice religion. It also said that patriarchy in religion cannot be allowed to trump the right to pray.
Section 377 – Decriminalization Of Gay Sex
The Supreme Court, in a landmark judgment which came out in early September, decriminalized gay sex holding that consensual sex between two adults was covered under the right to privacy.
A five-judge bench of the Supreme Court headed by CJI Dipak Misra partly struck down Section 377 of Indian Penal Code (IPC) holding it violative of the fundamental right to privacy. However, the Supreme Court said that Section 377 would continue to be in force in cases of unnatural sex with animals and children.
Adultery Is No More A Crime
The Supreme Court scrapped Section 497 (adultery) of the Indian Penal Code, which punished a married man only for having a consensual sexual relationship with a married woman without the consent or connivance of her husband. Here are the main highlights of the verdict.
CJI Misra said adultery can be a ground for divorce but not a criminal offence.
