Removal of Manu’s statue from HC: SC dismissed PIL

A bench of Justices Sanjiv Khanna and MM Sundresh of the Supreme Court on Friday 24th Feb 2023 dismissed a public interest litigation petition that sought the removal of the statue of ancient Hindu law giver Manu, installed in the premises of the Jaipur bench of the Rajasthan High Court.

The bench opined that this court could not hear the issue when the same is already pending before the Rajasthan High Court.

Justice Khanna instantly remarked, “Why should the Supreme Court entertain this when the matter is already pending before the High Court? You should approach the High Court”.

The plea contended that the statue was installed secretly in 1989 as Manu was not a popular figure, but rather someone who propagated the caste system of social hierarchy. Subsequently, there was a full-court meeting that very year where it was resolved to have the statue removed but still the same exists at the very same place.
