Can judges of High Court participate in the conference of brahmins?
MPs should raise the matter in Parliament also for suitable action against the Judge
“Reservations in appointment and education is given on the basis of caste. This is not acceptable to me. This is my personal opinion. But I request you to think over about my opinion.
Let us discuss about the reservation to the higher caste people on economic criteria. A son of a Brahmin cook, even if he falls within the non-creamy layer zone, will not get any reservation. Whereas, a son of a timber merchant who belongs to other backward communities will get reservation if he is within the non-creamy layer zone.
A Brahmin is never communal, he is always considerate, he is an ahimsavadi (non-violent person). He loves people, he is one who liberally donates for any laudable cause. Such a person should always be at the helm of affairs for which this Tamil Brahmin meet will definitely be a turning point.
We were Brahmins even in our previous births and we are Brahmins even in this birth. Our kindness, good qualities and lives devoted to the God are the reasons for this.
Now who is a brahmin? A brahmin is dwijhanmana, twice born, because of poorvajan masuhridham (good deeds on the previous birth), he is twice born. He has got certain distinct characteristics: clean habits, lofty thinking, sterling character, mostly a vegetarian, a lover of Carnatic music.
All good qualities rolled into one is a brahmin.Our identification is our household and habitation.Our Agraharams, Brahmins’ colonies, are vanishing away speedily. Agraharam is our habitation.There are innumerable agraharams in Kerala, which needs to be preserved.But those places are being encroached upon. The people of inferior castes are entering into them and spoiling them.There is a rich cultural heritage.The agraharams have to be declared as heritage source and we shall not permit any flat to be built in between the agraharams – in between the houses in the agraharams.”
All these are not spoken either by the President of the Brahmin Association or of RSS or Hindu Munnani.These were spoken by Hon’ble Judge of the High Court of Kerala Justice V.Chitambaresh at Tamil Brahmin Global Meet held at Kochi on 19th July 2019.
Opinion of Justice K.Chandru former Judge of
Madras High Court
Hon’ble former Judge of High Court of Madras Justice K.Chandru has written in a detailed article in Junior Vikatan of 31-07-2019 (p.12-14) under the caption “Whether they are justices or casteists?”
“It is not proper on the part of Judges to attend caste conferences. There is an inherent danger of arising a situation in which the Courts will become forums giving judgments according to the castes the parties belong.
In the year 1999, Hon’ble Judges of the Supreme Court of India took an oath on the basis of virtues of justice, to lead their Judicial lives strictly following the values, principles and norms. In that, the 16th oath states that ‘a Judge should always view the problems of the general public only in the point of view of the public. He should guard against bringing a blot to the position he is occupying’. All the Hon’ble Judges of High Courts have taken an oath assuring that they will consider it as their sacred duty to follow these values, principles and norms.
There is no place for Manudharma
Not only the Hon’ble Judges of the High Courts and the Supreme Court, for that matter, but also anyone in the position of a Judge, can’t participate in any of the caste conferences. This country is being governed and led only by the Constitution of India. They should remember that there is no place for Manudharma in the Constitution.” (Justice Chandru)
What happened in Gujarat?
Justice Patidar of the High Court of Gujarat has expressed his opinion in a judgment delivered by him that “the principle of reservation alone is going to lead the country to chaos and therefore it has to be cancelled.” The Supreme Court has not taken any action against him. But some of the MPs of Lok Sabha gave an impeachment motion to the Speaker condemning the statement of the Judge and requested to initiate action for his impeachment. Only afterwards Judge Patidar removed the objectionable portions in his judgment, as recorded emphatically by Judge Chandru in his article.
The former Judge himself has written his views on the basis of evidences and legal propriety. The most important thing to be noted here is that even though the Brahmins have become Judges, they continue to be with the spirit of Brahminism and caste fanaticism. They may be having contradictory views on other subjects, but when it comes to the subject of Social Justice, they used to sing the same tune in chorus. This a very good example for this.
The attack of Brahmins on Judges S.Mohan and Narayanasamy
The Government of India released a special postage stamp in commemoration of Thanthai Periyar’ centenary year. A function was organised at Periyar Thidal, Chennai on 17-09-1978. Presiding over the function, the then Hon’ble Justice S.Mohan of the Madras High Court spoke that the temples in the platforms and pavements should be removed. What he said was legally correct. For a speech delivered on the basis of law, the Brahmins at that time condemned Justice Mohan vehemently. ‘Cho’ Ramasamy wrote in Thughlak stating what will be the judgment in a case referred to Justice Mohan?
In another function held at Dharmapuri on 09-06-1969 for unveiling the statue of Thanthai Periyar, then Hon’ble Justice Narayanasamy attended the function. He was seated in the function without delivering any speech. Even then the Brahmins and their newspapers expressed their condemnation in loud voice.
Not only speaking in a Brahmins’ Conference, calling himself a Brahmin, claiming that he is a Dvija (twice born), the Agraharams belong to Brahmins only and the Brahmins will ever be Brahmins, he has also spoken against the principle of Social Justice enshrined in the Constitution of India. What action the Central Government of India and the Supreme Court of India are going to take against him? This is an important issue for which the people are anxiously wish to have an answer. He has stated that people of ‘inferior caste’ have entered ‘agraharams’ and thus also used the word “inferior caste” while referring to them about their encroachment of Agraharams. How a Hon’ble Justice could stoop to such a low level?
For the attention of the Members of the Parliament
The MPs should raise this issue in the Parliament. They should meet the Hon’ble President of India and present a memorandum and insist on taking suitable action against the Judge by initiating impeachment proceedings. They should also meet the Hon’ble Chief Justice of India and appraise him to take suitable action against the Judge.
This is not the problem of any single party or a religious problem, but it is a legal problem. A problem related to the Constitution of India. If the law does not perform its duty in this case, as if the fence itself could be allowed to swallow the cultivated crop, a situation may arise that anybody can go to any extent and instigate caste fanaticism. It will lead to the wide opening of the gates for the anarchy of infringement of laws and values to take place.
Hon’ble Justice Anitha Sumanth, another Judge of the Madras High Court has also participated in the Brahmins’ Conference. Are there provisions in the law permitting a Judge to take part in a caste meeting? This is an important question. Taking into account this also, we demand for suitable action against the Judges concerned.
President, Dravidar Kazhagam
