Article Title: Seal of justice

 

Article Summary

The article at hand focuses on the recent amendments made in the constitution regarding Hindu women’s right to inherit ancestral property. The author believes that this decision is a step in the right direction towards the removal of Indian laws of male-dominated prejudice. Soon after our independence, the founding fathers of our constitution took gender equality as a serious matter and despite fierce opposition, they went ahead with the idea. With the expansion of educational and other opportunities, what once seemed like a disgraceful idea to many conservatives soon turned into a matter of progress. The 174th law commission in the year 2000 specified the state of property law as being exclusively beneficial to men, which pushed for a change in the law that advocated the exclusion of women in the property division of a joint undivided Hindu family. Although there were some conflicts when the altered amendment came into practice, the supreme court ultimately put an end to the mix-up by clearly stating that it is the birthright of a Hindu woman to become a joint heir to the property. The author believes that gender justice is still a long shot in India, with many negative influences at play. However, recent developments are in sync with all the positive developments that we seek to accomplish soon.
