Justice MM Kumar, former Chief Justice of Jammu and Kashmir High Court, National Company Law Tribunal’s former president, and presently a member of National Human Rights Commission, on Sunday released ‘Sex Laws in India’.
The book- a critical assessment of sex laws for common man, is co-authored by father-son duo of retired Additional District and Sessions Judge and District Consumer Disputes Redressal Commission’s president Sanjeev Jindal and an advocate in Punjab and Haryana High Court Abhishek Jindal (Batch of 2014
The book enlightens the common man with respect to their constitutional, fundamental, and human rights so as to save them from unnecessary harassment at the hands of the statutory law enforcement authorities, especially certain unscrupulous police authorities during distressing times. The book is published by Unistar Books Private Limited.
Talking about the book, Sanjeev Jindal said the critical assessment of the sex laws also enables the common man to shape their views and to smoothen their behaviour vis-a-vis other members of society.
Abhishek says that the book has not been written to get any critical acclaims from legal luminaries or legal technical experts or legal scholars in the field of law but is solely for the benefit of the people in the street, the ordinary man who does not know much about the laws, especially about the sex laws.
Moreover, the topics are such with respect to whom the common man comes across in his routine life and which affects them in their daily life.
For example couples living in live-in relationship and adultery, run-away couples, rape, prostitution, members of third gender community i.e. gays, lesbians, bisexuals and transgender people vis-a-vis Section 377 of the IPC, molestation and sexual harassment of women and public obscenity, etc.
The BluePencil congratulates them on this huge achievement and wishes them the best of luck for all future endeavours!
