If the Supreme Court order on National Anthem, with all due respect, appears problematic, so do some of the liberal reactions to it. #India #Supreme Court #InMyOpinion #Law #Indian judiciary #liberals #India's Liberals #Indian law #Patriotism #National Anthem #constitutional #personal liberty

The fundamental right to livelihood enshrined under the Indian Constitution has been reaffirmed by the Apex Court and in what appears to be a morality versus livelihood debate, livelihood has won #TheLongView #Supreme Court #Law #Prostitution #Maharashtra #Sexuality #dance bars #Desire #Apex Court #Sex work #Dance bar licenses #Right to Livelihood
