To my mind, the court's mandate is not to rule in the interest of peace. It is to rule in the interest of justice. Ensuring peace is the mandate of law enforcement.

@MitaliSaran Why didn't they apply the same mindset for Sabarimala?

@thescientist009 @MitaliSaran Circumstances, I guess. They thought it would be a law and order situation in the North. I apologise for being blunt, but us southern lot are not as violent as our northern sisters and brothers. Secondly, Kerala has a CM who is part of a movement / party which is pretty much against organized religion.

@thescientist009

You never know if the verdict was what the people in power really wanted. Kerala society was divided on the issue and BJP did benefit out of that judgement.

@MitaliSaran

@MitaliSaran These days judges are legislators, police and creepy uncles all rolled into one.

@MitaliSaran Absolutely. The courts must uphold the law and the fundamental rights of people - which they have failed at miserably with the Ayodhya verdict as well as with Kashmir.. there are other examples as well.

@MitaliSaran Peace vs Justice (and whether Justice has affected pursuit of an eventual Peace) has been studied in the context of War Crimes Tribunals.
