Mr. Vaibhav Jain and his partner Mr. Parag Mehta were denied certificate of registration of their marriage by the Indian Consulate on the ground of sexual orientation alone while Dr. Kavita Arora and her partner Ms. Ankita Khanna were denied entry into the building of SDM, East Delhi when approached for seeking solemnization of their marriage under the Special Marriage Act. This petition was directed to be listed before the division bench by the single bench of Justice Navin Chawla on October 8, 2020. Pursuant to thatdirection, the matter was heard by the Division bench of the Delhi High Court on Wednesday and the High Court has ordered for filing of Counter Affidavits and Rejoinders by the parties and listed the matter for next hearing on January 8, 2021. Sr. Adv. Dr. Menaka Guruswamy, appearing on behalf of the petitioners, argued that in both the cases the authorities have acted in neglect of the Supreme Court’s judgement in Puttaswamy and Navtej Singh Johar which guarantees right to human dignity and privacy to same-sex couples. The act “amounts to disrobing the same-sex couples of their inherent dignity”. She pointed out to the bench that the judgement in Puttaswamy had categorically pointed out that privacy and sexual orientation are prohibited grounds of discrimination and in Navtej Singh Johar the LGBTQI people were held entitled to protection under Art. 14, 15, 19 and 21 of the Constitution of India. She argued that in the present matter the authorities in question had acted in a manner that had resulted in stripping off the petitioners of their rights which the Constitution of India and number of constitution benches of the Supreme Court have held “inheres in them an inherent dignity and an expectation of constitutional morality”. The bench had raised its concern pertaining to the issue of the concept of marriage having its origins in the customary laws and there being no definition of marriage under any existing law. Furthermore, it also pointed out to the availability of alternative remedy in the form of an appeal available to the petitioner under the Foreign Marriage Act. Replying to the queries Sr. Adv. Dr. Menaka Guruswamy read the communications received by the petitioner from the Indian consulate denying them certificate of registration on the ground of the same being prohibited under the Consulate Guidelines however, the same were not shown specifically to the petitioners. In response to the letter written by the petitioners to the Consulate General, they were told that the Supreme Court judgement in Navtej Singh Johar had only dealt with decriminalization of Sec. 377 of IPC and had not provided for a right to marriage. Guruswamy however contended that right to marriage was not customary but was entrenched as a statutory right. Sr. Adv. Dr. Guruswamy relied on the judgement of Osnat Alis v. UOI to argue that in this judgement the court had relied on Harbanslal Sahnia to hold that rule of exclusion of writ jurisdiction by availability of an alternative remedy is a rule of discretion and not one of compulsion. Secondly, the provision of appeal under Section 17 would only be available if there is an order by the Marriage Officer refusing to register a marriage and not in absence of such order. She pointed out that in the present matter there was no such order as petitioner were denied participation in the registration process itself and hence the question of appeal would not arise. She also argued that the Special Marriage act only provides the grounds on which marriage is prohibited and writ remedy lies as they are also challenging provisions of the Special Marriage Act. She argued that Puttaswamy and Navtej Singh Johar had indeed recognised right to marriage within the ambit of Article 21 and the petitioners in the present case were being denied the same quoting the paragraphs from the judgement authored by Jus. Nariman and Jus. Dipak Misra respectively. She concluded are submissions with an appeal that the petitioners were demanding to be recognised as equal citizens of this country. The counsel for UOI submitted that this situation demanded an analysis of the history of Sanatan Dharma to which the court pointed out that laws of this country are gender-neutral and this was a matter of rights of the citizens of the nation and this matter is not adversarial. The bench also enquired if there were any similar matters pending before other benches of this court to which Sr. Adv. Dr. Guruswamy replied in negative highlighting the difference between the PIL challenging the Hindu Marriage Act pending consideration where parties themselves were not affected but in this case the petitioners are themselves the affected parties. The Court will now hear this matter on January 8, 2021.UOI: This is a peculiar situation, we need to look at this history of Sanatan DharmaCourt: Please try to interpret the law in favour of the rights of the citizens of the ‘Sanatan Dharma’ country. The law is gender-neutral, don’t see this petition as adversarial— Live Law (@LiveLawIndia) October 14, 2020 The Petitioners in this case were represented by Senior Advocate Menaka Guruswamy, Ms. Arundhati Katju, Mr Govind Manoharan, and Ms Surabhi Dhar.

COUNCILMAN ELPERS RESPONDS TO HIS FACEBOOK POSTS ABOUT DRAG QUEEN READING TO CHILDRENDear Evansville Community,I disagree with the event that the EVPL wants to sponsor. I believe there are more suitable ways to teach diversity and tolerance that is related to the LGBTQ community. I voiced my opinion in a non-threatening way without name calling or cursing.However, others were so quick to spew “hate” and “intolerance” of my views. I wish everyone could voice their beliefs and opinions without fear. I don’t have evil in my heart. I care about my community, and I only want what’s best for it.Sincerely,Justin ElpersEvansville City Council 5th WardFOOTNOTE: Yesterday 5th Ward City Councilman Justin Elpers posted a comment on his Facebook concerning Evansville North Park Library allowing Drag Queens to participate in a story hour with children. We just received an e-mail from Mr. Elpers concerning his response to the people who strongly disagree with his statement on this issue. We have been told around 1,200 people have responded to Mr. Elpers post so far concerning his opinion about the Evansville North Park Library allowing Drag Queens to participate in a story hour with children.

Village Bakery managing director Robin Jones has said the business will be “stronger than ever” as it looks to rebuild following this week’s devastating blaze.Pictures taken by the North Wales Fire & Rescue Service have revealed the extent of the damage at the bakery on Wrexham Industrial Estate. A one-storey production area has been devastated by the blaze, which spread to the adjoining office block.The business said its emergency procedures had prevented injury to any of its 450 staff.Four fire service vehicles, one aerial ladder platform and an environmental protection unit were still at the site this morning (20 August), 24 hours after the alarm was raised.The business has rearranged production at its three other bakeries in order to minimise disruption to its customers.“We will bounce back and be stronger than ever, thanks to the fantastic team working here,” said Jones yesterday.In a new statement issued today, Jones said the business had been overwhelmed by the support received from customers.“It has been humbling for us to realise the high regard in which we are held by so many people. It has been particularly heart-warming to see the lovely supportive messages from staff, past and present, as well as the support from our customers and suppliers.“There is no time for us to feel sorry for ourselves and hard work to restore lost capacity starts today.”Jones paid tribute to his staff, whom he said were totally committed to ensuring the company overcame this blow.“We are proud of what we have achieved over the years in building the reputation of Village Bakery as a family-run firm with a mission to make the best-quality products, using our skills as craft bakers and investing in the latest in technology.“These principles will undoubtedly stand us in good stead as we strive to get back on track as soon as possible.”
Tags: dorm week, Student government Eric Richelsen Student government is celebrating the University’s unique dorm system with the inaugural Dorm Week, which features events, movies and games on each of the campus’ four residential quads. The week’s activities began Sunday with dorm dinners in the dining halls, according to senior Casey Skevington, student government director for the department of residence life. “This week is a way for the halls to share traditions with the entire campus and to give students the opportunity to explore other dorms. If you haven’t been inside many halls — now is your chance,” Skevington said. The week will showcase a wide variety of events, ranging from previews of signature events to other monthly traditions hosted by the halls, Skevington said. According to a student government press release, the quads themselves will be featured during a quad carnival each day, with the dorms in those areas hosting unique activities from 3 p.m. to 5 p.m. Monday evening highlighted South Quad dorms, with milkshakes from Dillon Hall, a Badin Hall-sponsored fitness class and a slip-and-slide from Sorin College. A 10 p.m. Mass in Morrissey Manor capped off the day. Tuesday is set to include ice cream from the women of Breen-Phillips Hall, pancakes from Lewis and Farley Halls and a barbecue hosted by Zahm House on North Quad, followed by a screening of the movie “Rudy” in the Stanford Hall basement at 7 p.m. Mod Quad will be featured on Wednesday, and the week of festivities wraps up on West Quad on Thursday with SUB-sponsored Acousticafe on the patio of Reckers Cafe.“I’m excited for campus to learn about Dorm Week,” Skevington said.“Hopefully this will encourage residents of other halls to take part in each other’s signature events, and to feel more comfortable when visiting a hall you don’t spend a lot of time in.”In addition to quad carnivals, students have the opportunity to participate in the campus-wide Dorm Passport Challenge, she said. “A stamp is located in each 24-hour space (of each dorm). Students are encouraged to visit each hall at any point this week, stamp their passport and turn in a completed passport by 5 p.m. Friday outside of the student government office. There are individual prizes as well as a prize for the hall with the highest percentage of participation,” Skevington said. “Nowhere else is like Notre Dame, it’s time we celebrated all of our dorms under the Dome!”Student body vice president Nidia Ruelas said Dorm Week is a new initiative brought to campus this year to celebrate the unique and diverse identities that make up Notre Dame’s student body. “We believe that it is important to celebrate all the different attributes that dorms bring to make our community one of strong spirit and belonging,” Ruelas said. “In this spirit, we wanted to encourage everyone in a fun and interactive way to learn more about each and everyone of the dorms and to reach out beyond their own dorm.”
