2021 was a good year for the Indian judiciary. Hon’ble NV Ramana became the 48th Chief Justice of India succeeding Bobde. Many progressive judgments were passed last year that paved way for gender and social equality.
While the list of such judgments is long, which is a matter of pride for us, we list five of them here in this video:
Apart from the ones mentioned, more landmark judgments were passed. If you remember the second wave of COVID-19 that claimed thousands of lives, the Supreme Court and the Delhi High Court reprimanded the central government passed stringent rules that the Center had to oblige by.
The Supreme Court also ruled that sex workers must be immediately issued their Voter ID card, ration card, and Aadhaar card. The judgment was taken keeping in mind that every citizen of this country should have fundamental rights irrespective of their profession.
Another one of the progressive judgments was that queerphobic terms should be removed from the MBBS textbooks. This ensures that every person, irrespective of their gender identity or sexual orientation, gets proper treatment without any discrimination.
Such rulings lay down a path for the upliftment of the marginalized section of society and help change the outlook of people towards them. We hope that the trend continues and 2022 witnesses more such progressive judgments and laws that shape society for the better.
