Two judges of the Madras High Court lamented the near absence of judges belonging to SC/STs, MBCs in the Supreme Court as well as various High Courts. Justices P.R. Shivakumar and D. Hariparanthaman of Madurai High Courtsay that all those who oppose reservation are scoundrels. Those people ask how long can the reservations continue and I would say as long as Hinduism does not change its principles. It is a shame that even today the body of a Dalit cannot be taken through a route dominated by caste Hindus in Vazhvur near Mayiladuthurai despite a specific order passed by the High Court against such opposition Sharing the dais along with me in a meeting in Chennai recently, Viduthalai Chiruthaigal Katchi leader Thol Thirumavalavan had rightly said that the order of the High Court was also buried along with the body of the Dalit in the pit,” he said. As on today, the sanctioned strength of High Court judges in the country was over 1,200. Just around 18 of them belong to the Scheduled Castes… This is elite untouchability. It can be eradicated only if the Supreme Court and High Court collegiums, which select candidates for judgeship, also consist of judges from minority and backward communities.
