New Delhi: The Supreme Court will commence from February 17, the hearing on the issues relating to gender justice vis-a-vis essential religious practices.

Upholding the November 14, 2019, reference order by a five-judge constitution bench, Chief Justice S.A.Bobde heading a nine-judge constitution bench said, “We hold that this court can refer questions of law to a larger bench in a review plea.”

 

The issue focuses on the right of women under Article 14 and the essential religious practices under Article 25 and 16.

The hearing is likely to last for three weeks, as court has given seven days each to both the sides.
