The Supreme Court Constitution bench, led by Chief Justice DY Chandrachud, is hearing challenges to the abrogation of Article 370 in J&K. Operating within the confines of the Constitution, would the Court be able to find a solution to this vexing issue?
With the Court hearing pleas seeking recognition of same-sex marriages, hopes have been raised for the LGBTQIA+ community. While consensual, private same-sex relationships are legal, marriages are not.
Justice DY Chandrachud the new helmsman of the justice system of the country, will have the unenviable task of having to cut to the system’s core with a hacksaw, and also be delicate while he handles the people he will help.
