The NLS Public Lecture Series invites you to a talk on “Gender and the “Faith” in Law: Equality, Secularism, and the Rise of the Hindu Nation” by Prof. Ratna Kapur
About the talk:
This session was chaired by Prof. Ratna Kapur, International Law, Queen Mary University of London, who analysed how concepts of gender, gender equality, and secularism have been addressed by the higher judiciary in India in cases dealing with matters of religion. The discussion focuses on three landmark decisions of the Indian Supreme Court on gender equality. The cases involve challenges to discriminatory religious practices that target women in the Muslim-minority and Hindu-majority communities.
