An Apex Court bench headed by Chief Justice TS Thakur said that it is for Parliament to take a call on the issue and it was not in the realm of the Apex Court to issue a direction on this.

Chief Justice Thakur, in a disapproving note, told senior counsel Gopal Subramaniam that if such petitions were filed without regard to the law, the court will come down very heavily.

The court asked why none of those who are being allegedly discriminated against have come forward for redressal. Advocate Ashwini Kumar Upadhyay had filed the PIL.
