Hmm, it is very difficult to take sides in Indian Politics!..Nobody is right.
Though I would have never bought the argument that there were no personal motives behind Jaya’s govt filing cases against the Kanchi seer, I expected that a fair trial would continue. But..here comes confirmation that all is not well with the way TN govt has handled the case. The seer had appealed for transfer of the case to some place outside TN and the SC agreed to it. Here are the reports from Express,Outlook ,Sify. All of them are extremely short reports that divulge very little. For ex, did the SC bench comprising the Chief Justice RC Lahoti cite reasons for this verdict ???. As expected, VHP is up in arms. And the media largely seems to have given the story a miss. I must confess that I noticed this only after I saw a bunch of letters in today’s Hindu. Given that the Media gave extensive coverage to the initial filing of cases phase, it isn’t fair to deny publicity to this judgement. Anybody has a more detailed post on this???
update 1 : I did find a couple of detailed posts on this. here and here . I guess both the blogs belong to the same author. The latter one is named “prajatantrasupplementary”..makes me curious.. this person might be working in the Parliament ?? 😕
update 2 : Frontline has an article on the issue. It is better that the articles that I quoted in my post.
