Actor’s voice against the test triggers one more row in TN



Chennai, September 14 (PTI) Tamil Nadu witnessed another NEET-related dispute on Monday. Actor Surya said the court was functioning virtually, but asked students to appear for a test, prompting a Madras High Court judge to sue for contempt against him, while six former judges took a stand against it. While the Tamil Nadu Advocates Association backed the judge and requested a lawsuit for contempt of cinema personality, a section of prominent lawyers also opposed such a ruling. It all started with the renowned “Singam” actor who launched a united voice of Tamil society against NEET, who “ignited the dream” of students from ordinary families of becoming doctors. Highlighting the alleged suicide of three students in one day on September 12, he said: “If we are not vigilant enough, it will happen again and again. We must not be silent spectators of the deaths of innocent students. . ” The government, which should guarantee equal opportunities for all, has however enacted a law for an education system that creates inequalities, he said. Those who did not understand the realities of the lives of the poor and ordinary students drew up educational policies, he said. “… the court, which delivered justice by videoconference, ordered the students to take an exam without fear,” the actor said. Justice SM Subramaniam, in a letter to Chief Justice AP Sahi, said the declaration “amounts to contempt of court because the integrity and dedication of the honorable judges as well as the judicial system of our great nation are not only undermined but criticized in poor condition. form, where public confidence in the justice system is threatened. “Surya has” committed contempt, justifying contempt proceedings to uphold the majesty of our Indian justice system, “said the judge. Six former Madras High Court judges, in a letter to the chief justice, said contempt action, as requested by the judge, was not necessary. When “four students committed suicide, unable to meet the NEET requirement and in a crowded atmosphere, the overreaction of an artistic person should not be taken seriously and out of context,” Judge K Chandru and five others, including Judge KN Basha and Judge T Sudanthiram, said. Tamil Nadu Advocates Association chairman S Prabakaran said the actor’s statement did not fall under the category of free speech and had led to debate. The actor’s words are “highly condemnable, degrading the judiciary, defaming honorable judges cannot be accepted and he must be treated appropriately and he must face contempt proceedings,” said the head of the TNAA. Surya’s remarks were nothing more than hate speech and the actor must withdraw his statement, Prabakaran said. Meanwhile, a section of lawyers, headed by renowned lawyers N GR Prasad and Sudha Ramalingam, wrote to the chief justice against the contempt proceedings. They said: “The question of whether the courts should function physically or not is for the committee of judges, chaired by the chief justice, to decide. However, the actor’s statement is only an expression of an opinion and cannot constitute a contempt. ” If a request is made, also by a judge of the High Court, for the opening of contempt proceedings, no one can express their opinion. Lately, any criticism of the judiciary is seen as contemptuous. As practicing lawyers, we believe that if the expression of an opinion is considered contempt, it would amount to stifling freedom of speech and expression. This would have a chilling effect on fundamental constitutional guarantees. “No less than four MBBS aspirants from Madurai, Ariyalur, Dharmapuri and Namakkal districts reportedly committed suicide last week.
