India is going to face a lot of changes in the next ten days. The Supreme Court will be delivering four major and important judgments which may include controversial topics of all time. These decisions can potentially have an impact on the social, religious and political sphere of the country.
These are the four major cases to be taken by the Supreme Court:
The Ayodhya Case
The most controversial case in India is going to get its final verdict by the Supreme Court. A five-judge bench will be set up and the verdict on the dispute will be finally announced. The case started when a communal riot in Ayodhya had damaged the three domes of the Babri masjid in 1934. Ayodhya issue has been in the news for years.
Entry Of Women In Sabarimala Temple
A historic verdict by the Supreme Court lifted the old prohibition of women from entering the Sabarimala temple in Kerala. A five-judge bench said restriction on entry of women between ages 10 and 50 is not a part of the religion and must be removed.
The provision made by Kerala Hindu Places of Public Worship violates the rights of Hindu women and the degradation of their status. The petitioners had argued that since Lord Ayyappa at Sabarimala was a celibate, the court must not interfere with the tradition.
Clean Chits To Rafale Fighter Jets
The other high-voltage case pending decision before a three-judge bench headed by the CJI is giving clean chits to Rafale jets. The government gave a clean chit to the NDA government on the purchase of 36 fully-loaded Rafale fighter jets. This deal was made with France under an inter-governmental agreement.
Ambit Of RTI Act
A five-judge Constitution bench presided by Chief Justice Ranjan Gogoi was hearing a plea filed by the Supreme Court Secretary-General. The plea was against the January 2010 judgment of the Delhi High Court that declared the CJI’s office a “public authority” within the meaning of Section 2(h) of the RTI Act, 2005.
These are some of the pending cases on which the Supreme Court will be giving their verdict. Let us see how these cases will end and change the world.
