The Honourble Mr. Justice K Bhaktavatsala: Becoming Agent Of Change
On Sep.04, 2012, I signed a petition on change.org, seeking promotion of Justice Bhaktavatsala. Later, I got the usual thanks notification: Dear Arvind, Thanks for signing my petition, ‘Reward Justice Bhaktavatsala -Karnataka: Reward JusticeBhaktvatsala for fighting against misuse of section 498a.’
This petition stated: “In a feminist ruled country(feminocracy) like India Justice Bhaktvatsala is a great judge who against all odds is battling the feminist hegemony in courts. He has taken on the misandrist media and feminist ideology and is delivering great judgment . His recent efforts on stopping the misuse of the dreaded section 498a which has led to millions of husbands committing suicide is truly remarkable. India hails Justice Bhaktvatsala and wants more Judges like him to be elevated to the HC and Supreme court.”
And now on Sep.05, 2012, a prominentprestigious publication, Kafila,started a campaignfor removal of the same judge. The content of the petition states: “Justice Bhaktavatsala has shown grave disrespect towards the Indian Constitution, which he is sworn to protect, and which guarantees equal rights to all citizens, men and women. As such, he has revealed himself to be utterly unfit for his high office of responsibility.Sign the petition asking the Chief Justice of India, Hon’ble Mr. Justice S.H. Kapadia, to remove Justice K Bhaktavatsala from his post for these appalling statements.”
Well, all I can now say is that ball lies in the court of people. Right now, I feel happy for adding a new dimension in the creature called writer. And yes, million thanks to my haters!
