Single-judge Justice Rahul Chatuverdi said that while on one hand, our society claims to be educated, it exhibits double standards by perpetuating caste.
“Caste system in our society is deep rooted, we boast ourselves as educated society but we live our lives with double standards. Even after 75 years of independence we are not able to get out with this social menace. This is pitiable and tragic,” the Court lamented.
While granting bail to one Sanni Singh in a murder case, the Court said that well-off persons have the duty to protect the under-privileged and downtrodden.
“It is the moral duty of those sane person, who are well-off, to protect the under-privileged and downtrodden, so that they feel themselves safe, secure and comfortable,” the single-Judge said.
It is high time for introspection in the larger interest of the country, the Court added.
