“If you want to marry, we can help you. If not, you lose your job and go to jail. You seduced the girl, raped her,” Without going into merits of the case, without following the due process of the law, how did CJI decide that the accused seduced the girl, raped her? How did CJI come to the conclusion that the alleged offense was committed? It did not take long when outraged feminist groups started bashing the CJI and the supreme court for those remarks. Under the feminist pressure, CJI Bobde released his press statement as reported by media:’Will you marry her’ remark taken out of context to tarnish image of Supreme Court, says CJI Bobde.
These statements of CJI that “Supreme court always has the highest respect for womanhood” do not sound favouring Human Rights & Equality. They sound more like towards pleasing a single gender while ignoring the other genders. What about Equality? What about Gender Neutrality? What about justice? Does Hon’ble Supreme Court not have respect for justice rather they have the highest respect for just one gender?
