Caste System Deep Rooted In Society; We Couldn’t Get Out Of The ‘Menace’ Even After 75 Yrs Of Freedom: Allahabad High Court

Bhuvana Iyer – Mumbai Uncensored, 24th January 2022 :

“Caste system in our society is deep-rooted, we boast ourselves as an educated society but we live our lives with double standards. Even after 75 years of ndependence, we are not able to get out with this social menace,” remarked Allahabad High Court recently as it granted bail to a murder accused in connection with an alleged Honour Killing case.

The Bench of Justice Rahul Chaturvedi also observed that it is the moral duty of those sane people, who are well-off, to protect the underprivileged and downtrodden so that they feel safe, secure and comfortable.

Background of the Case:

The Court was hearing an appeal filed by one Sanni Singh [booked under Sections 302, 307, 506, 120B IPC I.P.C] who had been denied bail by the lower court.

The informant who got registered the FIR, alleged that his younger brother (Anis Kumar/Deceased), who hailed from schedule caste community and was a Gram Panchayat Adhikari, was killed by a group of 17 men in broad daylight as during his training period, he had developed some amount of intimacy with his course-mate, who hail from upper caste and later on, he had married her.

It was further alleged that since the girl’s family could not come to terms with this marriage, they, after hatching the conspiracy, killed Anis Kumar in broad daylight.

The informant also alleged that Abhishek Tiwari Vivek Tiwari and Sanni Singh (applicant) on account of their previous enmity, actively participated in this offence and thus, facilitated them to commit this cold-blooded, daylight murder of Anis Kumar.

Arguments:

The Court perused the 161 Cr.P.C. statement of the wife of the deceased and noted that she had not even whispered a single word against the applicant.

The Court further found substance in the argument posed by the counsel for the applicant and noted that neither from the applicant, nor his pointing out, the police had recovered any incriminating material.

The Counsel for the applicant argued that his case is on a better footing than that of Nalin Mishra, Ajay Mishra Abhishek Tiwari etc. who are the blood relatives of the wife of the deceased and who have already been granted bail.

Referring to the above named person, the counsel argued that they might have some motive in the commission of offence but so far as the applicant is concerned he is rank outsiders having no concerns whatsoever in the commission of the offence.

Court’s Observations:

Against this backdrop, keeping in view the nature of the offence, evidence, complicity of the accused, submissions of the counsel for the parties, taking into account the manner and mode of the offence and the period of detention already undergone, and also without expressing any opinion on merits of the case, the Court concluded that the appellant had made out a case for bail. 

However, the Court was deeply saddened when the informant in the matter complained that the widow of the deceased and his other family members were in the sun and wanted to have a safe shelter.

the Court directed the S.S.P. Gorakhpur provides necessary security to the family members of the deceased and thereafter, having periodical assessment, deploy the requisite security during the trial and take stringent action against every person who wants to take the law in his hands.

National Girl Child Day 2022- Here’s the fearless history of Indian women who contributed to shaping India

Published

Women empowerment. Feminism. How many times have we heard this term? What does it mean and why is it important?

We live in modern India where women are doctors, engineers, technology geeks, writers, politicians and contributing to every field that was once considered male-dominated. But let us imagine the situation of India a hundred years back where women were subjected to everyday injustices and prejudices. Practices like Sati and female infanticide were common. It was a time they had no political, educational, social or suffrage rights. It took several decades of struggle, criticism and backlash to reach where women are today. 

Let us look at some of the greatest examples of women victory in India.

The first teacher

Savitribai Phule is considered the pioneer of feminism and the women’s rights movement. Ignoring conservative opposition and verbal abuse, Savitribai along with her husband opened a girls’ school in Pune. She became the first female teacher in India in 1848.

The first doctor

Anandi Gopal Joshi was one of the first female doctors of India alongside Kadambini Ganguly. She was the first to secure a two-year degree in western medicine in the US. Her husband always encouraged her to pursue her interest in medicine.

The first pilot

Women and aircrafts? Who would have appreciated that in 1930? It was when Sarla Thakral became the first woman in India to fly an aircraft. She got her license at the age of 21 in 1936. It is notable that she completed one thousand hours of flying the Lahore Flying Club’s aircraft. 

The first Mount Everest climber

In an era where sports and mountaineering were considered far-fetched for women, Bachendri Pal became the first Indian woman ever to touch the peak of Mount Everest in 1984. In 2019, she was awarded the Padma Bhushan award by the government of India.

The first Chief Minister

At a time when the contribution of women in politics was negligible, Sucheta Kriplani was the first woman to serve as a Chief Minister of the state of Uttar Pradesh. she headed the government from 1963 to 1967.

The first President

Even when women got a little representation in politics and the chairs o authority was booked mainly for men, Pratibha Patil became the first woman President of India in 2007 and served until 2012. She previously served as the Governor of Rajasthan in 2004.

The first Sena Medal for gallantry

Mitali Madhumita made the country proud when she became the first woman ever to win the gallantry award in 2011. She received the medal for showing extraordinary courage against the attacks on the Indian embassy by terrorists in Afghanistan.

The first solo fighter pilot

Hailing from the Rewa district of Madhya Pradesh, Avani Chaturvedi was declared the first woman combat pilot. She along with her two cohorts were inducted into the IAF fighter squadron in 2016. 

The first pilot for the Indian Navy

A resident of Bihar, Sub-Lieutenant Shivangi was the first female pilot of the Indian Navy.

It has been more than a hundred years since India got independent. Women empowerment has increased, their share in every field has been contributing to India’s development. The differences between men and women are blurring, but not entirely. 
Women have come a long way, but there is still a long way to go.

मद्रास उच्च न्यायालय ने सांस्कृतिक विरासत के संरक्षण के लिए तमिलनाडु में हिंदू मंदिरों की रक्षा के लिए दिशानिर्देश जारी किए।

Siddhant Mohite, Mumbai Uncensored, 20th June 2021:

जस्टिस आर महादेवन और पीडी ऑडिकेसवालु की मद्रास हाई कोर्ट की बेंच के 224 पन्नों के आदेश में, तमिलनाडु की सांस्कृतिक विरासत के संरक्षण के लिए स्मारकों और मंदिरों के संरक्षण के लिए दिशा-निर्देश राज्य सरकार के निर्देश के लिए जारी किए गए हैं। इन दिशानिर्देशों को तब जारी किया गया है जब उन्होंने उच्च राष्ट्रीय मूल्य के लोगों की रक्षा करने में अपने हिंदू धार्मिक और धर्मार्थ बंदोबस्ती विभाग (एचआर एंड सीई) के माध्यम से राज्य सरकार की विफलता को नोट किया और उसे अंतरराष्ट्रीय समुदाय द्वारा किंवदंतियों की स्वीकृति के माध्यम से उच्च खाते में रखा गया इसके साथ जुड़ा हुआ है।

आदेश ने युवा पीढ़ी को अपनी समृद्ध सांस्कृतिक विरासत के बारे में जानने की आवश्यकता पर बल दिया, कि विज्ञान के माध्यम से की गई खोजों और विकास की जड़ें “आध्यात्मिक क्षेत्र” और “भविष्य की पीढ़ियों के लिए ऐतिहासिक छाप” को संरक्षित करने के महत्व के माध्यम से थीं।

“इस भूमि के लोगों की बुद्धि, ज्ञान और कौशल उन क्षेत्रों में भी कहीं बेहतर और असामयिक हैं जिनका उत्तर विज्ञान को अभी तक नहीं मिला है। प्रमाण में, न केवल इस भूमि के आदिवासियों ने मानव समझ से परे सिद्धांतों को पीछे छोड़ दिया है, बल्कि यह भी आश्चर्यजनक और रोशन करने वाले स्मारक और ग्रंथ। इस तरह की रचना का उद्देश्य केवल एक व्यक्तिगत उपलब्धि नहीं थी, बल्कि भावी पीढ़ियों के लिए एक ऐतिहासिक छाप छोड़ने का एक सचेत प्रयास था”, पीठ ने कहा।

न्यायमूर्ति आर महादेवन द्वारा लिखा गया आदेश संस्कृति के बारे में अल्बर्ट कैमस और विक्टर ह्यूगो के उद्धरणों से शुरू होता है और तमिलनाडु की भव्य सांस्कृतिक विरासत का वर्णन करने के लिए एक महत्वपूर्ण हिस्सा समर्पित करता है। “तमिलनाडु की प्राचीन संस्कृति दुनिया के इतिहास में मौजूद सबसे गौरवशाली लोगों में से एक है, जो 2,000 से अधिक वर्षों से अधिक पुरानी है। देदीप्यमान स्थापत्य की इसकी अमर कृतियाँ, मंदिरों से लेकर मंदिरों तक के किलों का डिजाइन और निर्माण, भित्ति-चित्रों से लेकर चित्रों तक, मूर्तियों से लेकर शास्त्रों तक, चूने के गारे से लेकर मिट्टी की ईंटों तक, पत्थरों से लेकर चट्टानों तक, जड़ी-बूटियों से लेकर फलों तक, पराक्रम के युग में सही है। इस गौरवशाली भूमि को एकजुट करने पर तुला हुआ है।

तमिलनाडु अपने भव्य और प्राचीन मंदिरों के लिए पूरे विश्व में प्रसिद्ध है। यहां के स्मारक एक हजार से अधिक वर्षों के स्वर्णिम ऐतिहासिक युग के जीवित गवाहों के स्मरण हैं। वे इस भूमि की वीरता का उदाहरण देते हैं और सांस्कृतिक अभिव्यक्तियों के प्रतीक हैं। विशेष रूप से, मंदिर, जिनमें से कई 2000 वर्ष से अधिक पुराने हैं, कला और वास्तुकला के ज्ञान और खजाने के भंडार हैं। वे निरंतर विरासत में हैं, जो वर्तमान को अतीत से जोड़ते हैं और इसके विपरीत और अद्वितीय संस्कृति के जीवित प्रतीक हैं; और वहां से जुड़े उत्सवों को जीवंत और रंगीन बनाने के लिए। हमारे लोगों की भी विरासत में गहरी जड़ें हैं।”

“पूरा राज्य प्राचीन तमिल वास्तुकला के महान उदाहरणों से पटा हुआ है जो दो हज़ार साल पहले तक चला जाता है। मंदिरों के अलावा, राज्य मध्यकालीन विरासत से लेकर औपनिवेशिक इतिहास तक कई ऐतिहासिक किलों और अन्य आधुनिक वास्तुशिल्प चमत्कारों का भी घर है। इसमें दुनिया के सबसे पुराने निवासी शामिल हैं, क्योंकि यह दुनिया की सबसे पुरानी भाषा, तमिल की मातृभूमि है। राज्य प्राचीन काल से वाद-विवाद, कला, नवाचार, वास्तुकला, संगीत और वाणिज्य जैसी विभिन्न गतिविधियों के लिए एक सांस्कृतिक केंद्र बना हुआ है। संस्कृति, परंपरा और प्रथाएं धार्मिक मान्यताओं से जुड़ी हुई थीं। फैसले में कहा गया है कि मंदिरों और किलों, स्मारकों और विरासत स्थलों जैसे कई स्थानों में पाए जाने वाले वीरतापूर्ण और ऐतिहासिक घटनाओं का रिकॉर्ड लोगों की भाषा, विश्वास, परंपरा और संस्कृति की प्राचीनता के प्रति अदम्य दावे का उदाहरण है।

यह आदेश ‘पैरेंस पैट्रिया’ के अनुसार जारी किया गया है जो अदालत को माता-पिता की तरह व्यवहार करने देता है। राज्य सरकार को 17 सदस्यों वाली विरासत पर एक नया आयोग बनाने का निर्देश दिया गया है। केंद्र या राज्य अधिनियम के तहत आने वाली किसी भी संरचना या वस्तु को आयोग के अनुमोदन के बिना बदला या मरम्मत नहीं किया जाएगा। आयोग के पास महत्वपूर्ण स्मारकों, मंदिरों और प्राचीन वस्तुओं को पहचानने और सूचीबद्ध करने और उनके रखरखाव और मरम्मत में राज्य के हाथ का मार्गदर्शन करने की भी भूमिका है। प्राचीन वस्तुओं के बारे में विवरण एचआर एंड सीई वेबसाइट पर उपलब्ध होना चाहिए। उन्होंने केंद्र सरकार को प्राचीन स्मारक अधिनियम के अनुसार 100 वर्ष से अधिक पुरानी सभी संरचनाओं को राष्ट्रीय स्मारक घोषित करने का भी आदेश दिया।
