  5. Rescue, relief and renewal Ways to read the Constitution s to read the Constitution 'Sabarimala' is a test case for freedom of religion, women's rights and also constitutional interpretation S. UBHODEEP

  6. The arguments before the Supreme Court around the entry of women ofa certain age to the Sabarimala temple in Kerala raise issues about religious freedom, gender equality and the right of women to worship The petitioners have argued that discrimination based on biological reasons is not permissible going by the constitutional scheme ...due to the current exclusion, the right of women to worship the deity, Ayyappa, is violated. On the other side, the Devaswom Board and others in support of the ban have cited it as an age-old custom. It forms a part of 'essential religious practice' of worshippers under Article 25 of the Constitution. UBHODEEP

  7. A specific argument made in the court, based on Article 17, triggers interesting thoughts on constitutional interpretation. In support of the petitioners, it was argued that the exclusion is a form of 'untouchability since the exclusion is solely based on notions of purity and impurity But this argument was resisted on the contention that the prohibition of untouchability was historically intended only to protect the interests of the backward classes The claim is that the makers of the Constitution never envisioned including women within the ambit of untouchability. UBHODEEP

  8. Two approaches O'original intent' approach based on the intent of the framers of the Constitution when they drafted the text. Eg. the right to same-sex relationships under the right to liberty promised under Article 21 only if she is convinced that the drafters intended that. She may argue that the framers never thought of such a situation and, therefore, a same-sex couple cannot have a constitutional right under Article 21. Wide criticism Charter in effect become frozen in time to the moment of adoption with little or no possibility of growth, development and adjustment to changing societal needs." and nt to changing societal UBHODEEP

  9. Oliving tree' doctrine It involves understanding the Constitution to be an evolving and organic instrument. For the living tree theorists, it matters little what the intentions were at the time of Constitution making What matters the most is how the Constitution can be interpreted to contain rights in their broadest realm UBHODEEP

  10. Therefore, in essence, the Sabarimala case is a test case not only for freedom of religion and women's rights but also for constitutional interpretation It presents to the court an exemplary opportunity for an alternative reading of the Constitution. If the court indeed reads Article 17 to have a wider meaning, it will signal a new era of transformative constitutionalism in Indian jurisprudence. UBHODEEP
