‘Protests amount to con­tempt of court’

Sunday Express - - TAMIL NADU / SOUTH -

Kot­tayam: The on­go­ing protests in streets in con­nec­tion with women’s en­try in Sabari­mala amount to con­tempt of court, said for­mer High Court judge Jus­tice B Ke­mal Pasha. He was speak­ing af­ter in­au­gu­rat­ing the an­nual meet­ing of the Ker­ala chap­ter of In­dian So­ci­ety of Anaes­the­si­ol­o­gists (ISA) here on Satur­day. “The po­lit­i­cal par­ties launched protests, without rais­ing the is­sue in the court at the right time. It is the women who should de­cide whether to move to Sabari­mala, break­ing cen­turies’ old cus­tom. And there is no point in mak­ing any hue and cry in streets against the court,” he said.
