Why These Kind Of Diktats Don’t invite Punishment

Against the spirit of constitution and the election laws, a group of Muslim Clerics have issued an order prohibiting Muslim women from contesting the local municipal election in Kolhapur, needless to say that no such order has been passed for Criminals, Communalist and Corrupt candidates.

 

It is about time that law prevented such kind of social orders or diktats, which on the face of it are against the grain of most fundamental rights enshrined in the Constitution. Taking cognizance suo moto of such diktats whether it emanates from religious quarters or social groups like Khaps etc. and punishing the people involved in it would be one step in right direction and a deterrent to all who can with impunity talk and force the society to do acts against the rights enshrined in the constitution, as such organisation or bodies are revered, respected or feared.
