There is a lack of sensibility, that's why there is discrimination in educational institutions - CJI Chandrachud

Supreme Court Chief Justice DY Chandrachud has said a big thing about discrimination in educational institutions. He said that due to lack of sensitivity in institutions, discrimination happens.

The issue of discrimination is directly related to the lack of sensitivity in educational institutions. Judges have an important role in establishing communication with the society inside and outside the courts for social change. Chief Justice DY Chandrachud has said these things in a program in Hyderabad. He said, “I wonder where our institutions have made a mistake due to which students are being forced to end their lives.”

Referring to the recent incident of alleged suicide of a Dalit student at IIT Bombay, he said that such incidents against victims from marginalized communities are becoming common. Addressing the convocation ceremony at The National Academy of Legal Studies and Research (NALSAR) here, the CJI said that judges in India have an important role to play in interacting with the society both inside and outside the court to bring about social change.

Students are committing suicide, what is the reason – CJI

CJI Chandrachud said, “Recently I read about the suicide of a Dalit student in IIT Bombay. It reminded me of the suicide of a tribal student at the National Law University in Odisha last year." The Chief Justice said that my sympathies are with the families of these students, but I am also concerned about where our educational institutions are headed – where students are being pressurized to end their precious lives. A student named Darshan Solanki allegedly committed suicide on February 12 at IIT Bombay. He said that he appeals to lay emphasis on the mental health of the lawyers and the mental health of the students.

Constitution gives power to speak – CJI

In the same month, he reached the convocation ceremony at Maharashtra National Law University in Nagpur, where he said that the constitution is a document that gives homegrown, self-governance, dignity and independence and the power to speak. He had said that everyone has to understand the basic values ​​of the Constitution. It should not be forgotten that the constitution gives the responsibility of social, political and economic justice. We have to speak on these rights. It was Justice Chandrachud who had decriminalized homosexuality, referring to which he said that a lot has been achieved but a lot remains to be achieved.
