Clearly, that shunning is an act of Canonical Terrorism, whose sole purpose is to strike fear in peoples’ heart that they will be next, and to cast that net of fear as widely as possible, by choosing the victim whom you make an example of very carefully. I appreciate the thoughtful comments of those who posted before me, and their words echo in my mind as I read this–both Canadians and Americans. As always, whenever this topic comes up, there is the dissenting voice of some, who in their zeal for preserving and defending Biblical teachings, forget that we are Christians, not Biblicans, and that Christ Jesus charged us to accept the New Covenant that he bought for us with his passion, death, and Resurrection, and that New Covenant excluded none, including (and especially) those who had been shunned by the Jewish tradition which came before the Christian Era. Christ taught us to hold ourselves to a higher standard, and made each of us personally responsible for our brothers’ and sisters’ welfare, without judging, as we are all subject to sin, even the most self-righteous among us.I think in particular of the thoughtful comments about the Rainbow flag displayed at the Cathedral in Montreal, and of the comment by my American brother about our Presiding Bishop. So that our Canadian brothers and sisters may be clear on the reality of the situation: the ECUSA has left the acceptance of shunning of same-sex relationships and marriage up to the discretion of each Diocesan Bishop, so even though our Canon law permits the practice, it is most certainly not universally practiced, within the USA. Our Bishop of SW Florida is one of those who does not permit it, and this decision affects the lives of several million Episcopalians in Southwest Florida, for if even one is denied, we are all diminished.I continue to pray for all my Brothers and Sisters in Christ, regardless of which side of this issue they find themselves, because that is how Christ taught us to pray.+ Virtual Celebration of the Jerusalem Princess Basma Center Zoom Conversation June 19 @ 12 p.m. ET March 18, 2016 at 12:42 pm Probably proctology is now a good area for physicans to specialize in . Richmond Parker Rector Hopkinsville, KY Priest Associate or Director of Adult Ministries Greenville, SC Rector Pittsburgh, PA Steven Colburn says: [Anglican Journal] A resolution before General Synod this summer to change the Anglican Church of Canada’s marriage canon to allow same-sex marriage is “not likely” to get the number of votes it needs from bishops, according to a statement sent by the House of Bishops to Council of General Synod (CoGS), and released publicly Feb. 29.In the course of their special meeting in Niagara Falls, Ontario, last week, the bishops said “it became clear to us that the draft resolution to change the Marriage Canon to accommodate the marriage of same-sex partners is not likely to pass in the Order of Bishops by the canonical requirement of a two-thirds majority in each Order.”The bishops said they felt obliged to share this information, given that CoGS, which meets March 10-13, expects to be considering the process for handling July’s vote.“We have grappled with this issue for three meetings of the House, and we feel a responsibility to convey our inability to come to a common mind in discerning what the Spirit is saying to the Church,” the bishops said. “We share this out of respect for the considerable work that the Church has invested in preparing to debate this motion at General Synod.” They added, “We continue to wonder whether a legislative procedure is the most helpful way of dealing with these matters.”Archdeacon Michael Thompson, general secretary of the Anglican Church of Canada, said that it will be up to CoGS to decide how best to respond to the House of Bishops’ message when it meets this spring.Regarding the uncertainty expressed by bishops about “whether a legislative procedure is the most helpful way of dealing with these matters,” Thompson said this should not be read as an attempt to undercut or circumvent General Synod’s established processes.“The bishops understand that there is an obligation for the Council of General Synod to put a resolution before the General Synod,” he said in an interview. “I don’t imagine that they think that can be avoided.”The bishops said discussion of the marriage canon had not been easy.“Some of us talked of being mortified and devastated by this decision,” the statement said.The bishops also said they recognized that the issue had brought “distress” to many people, and that their own statement would cause “deep pain…both within and beyond the Church.” They admitted to feeling “saddened that we do not seem capable of unity on this issue.”But, they said, “We are committed to work toward the deeper unity for which Christ died, and we pray daily that God would mend our divisions,” adding they hoped to “witness the miracle of our healing.”The bishops said they also continued to question whether the question of same-sex marriage is best handled by making changes to church laws.“There is a desire among us to explore other options for honouring and fully embracing committed, faithful same-sex relationships,” the statement said.“In our deliberations, we affirmed a commitment to continuing conversations and engagement with the Report of the Commission on the Marriage Canon, and to achieving the greatest pastoral generosity possible.”The bishops said they will also “engage Indigenous and minority cultural perspectives in our Anglican family in our understanding of marriage.”The bishops said they intended to continue “conversations and engagement” with “This Holy Estate,” the report of the Commission on the Marriage Canon released September 2015.During last week’s meeting, the statement said, the bishops spent much time discussing the theology of marriage, as well as “our episcopal role and responsibilities as chief pastors, and as guardians of the Church’s faith, order and unity.”One focus, the bishops said, was the relationship of bishops to the church “locally, nationally and with our Anglican Communion partners, and alongside and within synods.“These conversations led into considerations about the nature of our relationships within the House in light of the deep differences we have on the matter of changing the Church’s teaching on marriage.”Last week’s meeting began, according to the bishops’ statement, with a “moving and intimate” account by Archbishop Fred Hiltz, primate of the Anglican Church of Canada, of his experience at the meeting of world Anglican primates in Canterbury, England, this January.“In reliving these moments with him, we grew in our understanding of the complexity of relationships in the Communion, and were filled with gratitude and pride by the grace, humility and leadership provided by our Primate,” the statement said.The bishops also said they regretted the lack of engagement across the church with the marriage canon commission’s report.“We felt that we needed to recommit ourselves to promoting the document for study, and especially among our synod delegates,” the bishops said.The bishops said they entered into the meeting aware that many in the church were praying for them. The meeting, they said, included daily Eucharist and Bible study using an Indigenous method.The statement concluded with an affirmation by the bishops that they are intent on achieving a deeper unity for the church beyond the division created by debate around the marriage canon.“Despite the pain and distress we feel at our own differences, yet we strongly affirm that we are united in striving for the highest degree of communion possible in the spirit of St Paul’s teaching of the nature of the body of Christ and our need for one another in Christ, where no one can say, ‘I have no need of you’ (1 Corinthians 12.21),” it said.Meanwhile, a General Synod Communications story published shortly after the statement from the House of Bishops was released noted that Dean Peter Wall, planning and agenda team co-chair for General Synod, has asked members of the team to prepare a process by which CoGS will “engage” the House of Bishops’ message.Wall also stressed that the House of Bishops’ statement does not put an end to the marriage canon process.“I do not believe that the work of the General Synod can be pre-empted by a meeting of the House of Bishops alone,” Wall said in the statement. “It is when they meet as the Order of Bishops, in conversation with the Orders of Clergy and Laity, that bishops participate in the shared responsibility of all members of the General Synod to take a decision on this matter.” Submit a Press Release March 1, 2016 at 10:28 am Canada’s House of Bishops is running scared after Canterbury Director of Music Morristown, NJ Episcopal Charities of the Diocese of New York Hires Reverend Kevin W.

Division is indicative of the powers of darkness. Sometimes God calls prophets, and grants them a true message which the community of faith disregards… to their peril. Think Jeremiah down the well; think Micaiah eating bread and water for the rest of his life (1 Kings 22:13-28). But until there is Unity, one cannot tell for certain who is the true prophet and who is the false. As Zedekiah said to Micaiah: “How did the Spirit of the Lord go from me to speak to you?”The Episcopal church endorsed same-sex matrimony only at the cost of losing the clergy and people of ACNA. That is schism, and neither ECUSA nor ACNA reeks of holiness in this matter. Any more than do GAFCON and the Southern Cone. The primates’ meeting was a step towards unity – albeit a faltering one. The Canadian House of bishops is to be commended for their caution, in the face of guaranteed outrage by those who are very sure of their own righteousness. Outrage is, of course, certain from either side of the controversy: for if the Bishops move forward on same sex matrimony, they will be damned by conservatives, and if they wait they will be damned by liberals.But schism is just so *wrong*! It is in defiance of Jesus’ prayer in John 17 “that they may be one as we are one.” The hard work of Christianity is to love ALL – even those with whom you profoundly disagree – and to wait, and listen, and speak prayerfully, working for the day when ALL can come to one mind – which is the mind of Christ.

After just seven days of President Donald Trump’s administration, a host of measures have been ordered threatening a myriad of constituencies throughout the country and internationally.Executive orders and presidential memoranda have been announced relating to the resumption of construction on the Dakota Access Pipeline (DAPL); the building of a wall or fence on the border between the U.S. and Mexico; a ban on people from targeted nations seeking visas and refugee status; muzzling communications from government agencies; threats of withholding federal assistance to municipalities that refuse to turn over people designated as “illegal” by the state; and other actions.Mexican President Enrique Peña Nieto was scheduled to travel to the White House for a meeting with Trump to discuss bilateral relations. On Jan. 26, Mexico announced that the meeting was cancelled.The administration’s insistence that a wall be built on the southern border and that Mexico pay for it has created tensions between the two nations. The Mexican government has repeatedly rejected Trump’s assertion that Mexico will finance the project, eliminating the basis for any normal relations.The Mexican leader issued the following tweet: “This morning we have informed the White House that I will not attend the meeting scheduled for next Tuesday with the @POTUS.”Worsening national and political repressionPeople of Latin American descent have been designated as the largest national minority in the U.S. From an historical perspective, the Southwest and West Coast of the U.S. were seized from Mexico during a war of annexation in the mid-19th century. Many Mexicans, even those with U.S. citizenship, face systematic discrimination and national oppression.Another major executive order would resume construction of the Keystone XL and Dakota Access pipelines. The DAPL is slated to run through lands still controlled by Native people. A massive solidarity movement sprang up in 2016 involving millions across the country and the world. Thousands of people traveled to the Standing Rock Sioux lands to serve as “human shields” against attacks carried out by law enforcement, the military and private security personnel working on behalf of the corporations spearheading the pipeline, which would transport 500,000 barrels of oil per day.Trump noted that 93 percent of the project has been completed and that it would create jobs for American workers. Yet the total number of positions is only a few thousand, and these purported benefits ignore the legitimate concerns of the Indigenous people, who say their water supply and other sacred possessions are threatened by the pipeline.According to Eurasia Review, “A lawyer for the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe said the decision was made ‘hastily and irresponsibly.’ The tribe said it intended to pursue legal action against Trump’s order, adding that the pipeline posed a risk not just for their water supply but also for millions of Americans living downstream. One of the leading organizations in the Standing Rock protests, the Indigenous Environmental Network, called Trump’s actions ‘insane and extreme, and nothing short of attacks on our ancestral homelands.’”In contrast to the views of Native people and their legal representatives, the president of the North Dakota Petroleum Council, Ron Ness, who heads the trade group representing oil firms, championed Trump’s decision, saying it was “a great step forward for energy security in America.”Two additional statements from the Trump administration have significance for African-American people. The president tweeted on Jan. 24, “If Chicago doesn’t fix the horrible ‘carnage’ going on, 228 shootings in 2017 with 42 killings (up 24% from 2016), I will send in the Feds!”It was not clear if Trump was referring to federal civilian employees or military personnel. The National Guard for the state of Illinois could be federalized or regular units of the Army could be deployed in such a threat.No mention was made of the horrendous socioeconomic conditions prevailing among African Americans in Chicago and the state of Illinois, where they suffer the highest unemployment rate in the country. Drastic cuts in education, social and municipal services have been implemented while the leading corporations in the U.S. announce regular increases in their profits.Precedents for such military deployments extend back decades. In Detroit, Newark, Chicago, Washington, D.C., Los Angeles and other cities in the 1960s, both National Guard and Airborne Divisions were sent to put down urban rebellions led by African Americans. Just over the last two years, National Guard forces have been sent to Ferguson, Mo. (2014), Baltimore (2015), Milwaukee and Charlotte, N.C. (2016), in the aftermath of African-American rebellions sparked by the police killings of civilians.Local police agencies have been supplied with military equipment such as armored personnel carriers, long-range acoustical devices, chemical agents, helicopters and sophisticated intelligence technology by the federal government. Under the present regime it is inevitable that the transfer of this hardware will increase.Moreover, Trump is maintaining that his loss of the popular vote in the November election is a direct result of voter fraud. Trump won in the Electoral College but received nearly 3 million fewer popular votes than Hillary Clinton.Allegations of massive voter fraud are often utilized to further suppress the electoral weight of African Americans and other nationally oppressed groups. Rev. Edward Pinkney of Berrien County, Mich., in 2014 was falsely accused of altering five dates on recall petitions aimed at removing a mayor who was perceived as a functionary of the Whirlpool Corp., based in Benton Harbor. Rev. Pinkney was charged with felony forgery, tried by an all-white jury and judge, and given a 30- to 120-months sentence in state prison.The removal of the enforcement provisions of the Voting Rights Act of 1965 by the U.S. Supreme Court in its infamous Shelby County v. Holder ruling in 2013 has effectively weakened one of the gains resulting from the Civil Rights movement of the 1960s. Such an investigation by Trump is clearly politically motivated, since statistical studies have not indicated this level of voter irregularities.Neofascism and capitalismSince the election of Donald Trump to the White House, the New York Stock Exchange has risen by hundreds of points, surpassing 20,000 on Jan. 25. This of course does not translate into an improved standard of living for working people.Poverty and deprivation are increasing in the U.S. and internationally wherever capitalism is the dominant economic system. The megaprofits of the banks, manufacturing firms and oil conglomerates have brought greater misery to the workers, farmers and youth. Since 2007-08, when the worst financial downturn since the Great Depression began, there have been repeated announcements of a “recovery” and “prosperity.”The previous administration of President Barack Obama many times declared the end of the financial crisis. Nevertheless, millions remain jobless, underemployed and poor in the U.S despite an “official” unemployment rate of less than 5 percent. The labor participation rate, a more accurate measurement of the state of the working class and nationally oppressed, remains at an abysmal 62.7 percent. (Business Insider, Jan. 6)Nonetheless, the rising stock market indicates Wall Street is satisfied that the Trump program of far-right domestic and foreign policy imperatives is compatible with the unbridled quest for maximum profits by international finance capital. Most neofascist movements are led by representatives of the bourgeoisie who pander to the fears of key sections of the working class and middle strata.The Trump cabinet and other leading appointees represent numerous financial and defense corporations. None of the members of his team have any identifiable history of concern with the plight of the workers and oppressed.Toward a united front in present periodTrump’s approach to electoral and administration politics has prompted mass demonstrations and disaffections from the system. Millions of women protested throughout the U.S. and the world on Jan. 21.On Inauguration Day itself, thousands demonstrated in the streets surrounding the White House and beyond, where over 200 people were arrested, including six journalists. These media workers, along with activists, are being charged with felony riot. The cellphones of the activists and journalists were confiscated by the Metropolitan D.C. police, placing their professional contacts and personal acquaintances in jeopardy of law enforcement targeting.The ascendancy of Trump provides an important opportunity for building a broad-based united front of democratic forces, including African Americans, Latin Americans, Native peoples, immigrants, women, LGBTQ communities, environmentalists and other working-class constituencies.However, this alliance, which represents the majority of the population in the U.S., must be based on sound political principles and not opportunism. The rights and demands of the oppressed must be upheld, including foreign policy questions such as dismantling the military-industrial complex, the liberation of Palestine and the elimination of racist violence and institutionalized discrimination against people-of-color communities.This coalition of genuine popular forces should be organized outside the framework of the Democratic Party, which represents the same ruling-class elements as Trumpist Republicans and their Wall Street and Pentagon supporters. Some spokespeople at the global Women’s March on Jan. 21 seemed to be suggesting that the Democratic Party can be reconstituted under different leadership, which can provide a way forward for the masses. Such illusions could not be further from the reality in which the capitalist U.S. and the world are entangled.A revolutionary mass party of the working class and the oppressed is the only solution to the current political and economic crises. The capitalists and the imperialist system led by Washington and Wall Street have nothing to offer the peoples of the globe except further impoverishment and imperialist war.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare this

As the Bible exhibit for the Pasadena library took shape the Reading Room staff gave serious thought to what would be an appropriate way for the Reading Room to celebrate this anniversary. The result of these deliberations was an exhibit, which spotlights Mary Baker Eddyâ€™s deep love for, and long term study of the Bible, and illustrates the interconnectedness of the King James Bible and the Christian Science textbook, Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures, by Mary Baker Eddy.In the exhibit you will read of the â€œgracious preparationâ€ Mrs. Eddy experienced, as â€œhunger[ing] and thirst[ing] after righteousnessâ€ she was led to the discovery of Christian Science. In the first five chapters of Science and Health, Mrs. Eddy leads the spiritual seeker through the preparation she herself experienced, and the exhibit shows how everything she learned and wrote about in these first five chapters, she learned from her study of the Bible.Click here to view the online exhibit.First Church of Christ, Scientist, 80 Oakland St., Pasadena, (626) 793-5151 or visit www.christiansciencepasadena.com.

Morton was a National Hispanic Scholar; she was on the sophomore, junior and senior board, Congressional Youth Advisory Council for the 11th District, National Honor Society president, senate in her junior and senior year, treasurer of Students in Philanthropy and Texas Scholars.Morton, 18, also has been a classical pianist the last 13 years.Martinez, 17, was the vice president of the National Honor Society, historian of Students in Philanthropy, a member of the senior board, a member of the senate, a member of Phi Theta Kappa and National Society of Leadership and Success at Odessa College where he took dual credit classes, a member of the Congressional Youth Advisory Council for District 11 and academic decathlon.“I’ve held on to the No. 1 rank since sophomore year and I kind of just made it a goal of mine to keep doing it,” Morton said. “It was always my first priority just to do my best, not necessarily to be at the top spot and doing my best just got me there.”As soon as she found out for sure she would be No. 1, Morton said she felt relieved.“I could stop stressing about it and it’s really fulfilling to have done it,” Morton said.But she also admires Martinez.“He’s actually a really good friend of mine since kindergarten. I just think the world of him. He’s so smart and so awesome, so there was definitely a little bit of competition. But it was always friendly competition, so if it would have been the other way and he would have beat me it would have been just fine,” she said.Having Martinez as her chief competition, she said, made the whole process a lot less stressful.“I know that in another situation … really the competition could have been really not pretty, but with Marco it was really nice. We were really supportive of one another the whole way, so it was great,” Morton said.Morton said she is excited to find out what the future holds, move on and do something new.“I’ve enjoyed my time in high school, but I’m also excited to see what’s coming. I give a lot of credit for that to my teachers. I’ve had some wonderful, wonderful teachers. I’m really blessed to be able to say that. I think they’ve prepared me more than I could ever ask for,” Morton said.Morton’s brother, Ryan, was the valedictorian at Odessa High School. But she said her parents didn’t pressure her to be the same.“They definitely did a good job of nudging me in the right direction, but they never once said, ‘You have to do this.’ They always just said you need to do your best just try your best and I think that’s why I didn’t feel pressured to get where I am. I didn’t have to be valedictorian. It’s just doing my best got me to that point,” Morton said.Martinez intends to study biology and go into the pre-medicine program at Texas A&M to become a physician or surgeon.“I tried my best,” he said. “That’s basically all I really have to say. It was a long run. I’m very proud of Kristin. She did a great job. She deserved everything that she got.”Martinez said they had a little bit of a rivalry, but it was “all fun and games.”“We’d tease each other about it. Everyone at school knew we were close, so they’d make a little game out of it. It was a friendly competition; very friendly,” he said.He agreed with Morton that Permian has prepared him well for college and it will help him financially.Martinez said his family supported him tremendously. He has two little brothers, who he said are a thorn in his side, but also the “light of my heart.”“If it wasn’t for them, I don’t know where I’d be. Mom homeschooled me when I was little. I didn’t go to preschool,” he said.“I try to be the best example I can for them. I just want to teach them never give up, always try your best in everything that you do and never let anything knock you down,” he added.If You Go

Neither Maharashtra Area Development Authority nor the builder can have any further legal obligation to rehouse her, the bench observed.A bench comprising Justices Deepak Gupta and Aniruddha Bose was deciding the appeal filed by a woman, seeking right to reside in the homes allotted to her husband under the Maharashtra Housing and Area Development Act 1976.Facts of the case The appellant was having a strained relationship with her husband and in-laws. The building, which housed the matrimonial home in question, was demolished and redeveloped by a firm of builders under the Maharashtra Housing and Area Development Act, 1976. Under a scheme approved under the provisions of the said Act, during the period of redevelopment, the occupants were required to shift to transit or temporary accommodations. The appellant’s contention is that such exercise of redevelopment had been undertaken in pursuance of a statutory scheme framed under Section 79 of the 1976 Act which has provisions for rehabilitation of dishoused occupiers. The members of the family of the appellant after her marriage, comprising her husband and mother-in-law had shifted to the transit accommodation. The appellant-writ petitioner remained in the original building with her two minor sons. As the appellant had continued to reside in the old building, the MHADA authorities issued a notice upon her under Section 95-A of the 1976 Act, which stipulates that where the owner of a building submits a proposal for reconstruction of the building, it shall be binding on all the occupiers to vacate the premises.Following the notice of eviction, she shifted to another place. Later, she approached the Bombay High Court under writ petition seeking directions for residing in the houses allotted to her husband by MHADA after area re-development. The HC dismissed the plea stating that the rights cannot be enforced under Article 226.Conclusions of SCChallenging the Bombay HC verdict, the appellant came before the SC, as party-in-person.Her case was that since she was de-housed by MHADA by eviction notice in 2000, it was incumbent upon them to re-house her in the newly allotted matrimonial house.Disagreeing with this, the bench observed :”But in our opinion, when a builder has discharged his obligation by accommodating the original owners in the redeveloped portion as per such a scheme, a lady married into that family would not be entitled to invoke the writ jurisdiction of the High Court to enforce her right to matrimonial home citing the provisions of the said statute, if her husband does not permit her to reside in the allocated portion” “She does not have any independent claim on title or interest to that property having its genesis in that statute. Her claim of right to reside in her matrimonial home is sought to be projected by her as collateral to the statutory right of her husband to be rehoused or rehabilitated in the new building. But her right to reside in her matrimonial home stands detached from and is independent of the statutory scheme under the said Act”, observed a bench of Justices Deepak Gupta and Aniruddha Bose.The Court said that her right to reside in matrimonial house was not flowing from the 1976 Act; such rights ought to be enforced through other processes of law.”Neither MHADA, nor the builder can have any further legal obligation to rehouse her.. She is staking her claim as a constructive beneficiary of the redevelopment scheme. But our opinion is that the right she is seeking to enforce, though flows from a set of events on the basis of which her husband can claim rehabilitation, is actually anchored to an independent legal principle under the Family Law. We accept that she was an occupier under Section 2 (25) of the 1976 Act, but such occupier status was dependent upon her husband’s independent right as part owner of the property. Her right flowing from her matrimonial status cannot get diffused with her right of rehousing or rehabilitation under the statutory scheme. Her right to reside in her matrimonial home does not flow from the 1976 Act” The Apex Court opined that though she was dishoused as an occupier, claim of her rehousing is based on her status as wife. Accordingly, such claim has to be adjudicated upon by the Civil Court or the Family Court or any other forum the law may prescribe. Such right of the appellant cannot be diffused with the right of her husband under the building reforms and reconstruction law, whose family property, part of which he is the owner, has been reconstructed, articulated the Court. The top court recognised that a married woman is entitled to live, subsequent to her marriage, with rest of her family members on the husband’s side, in case it is a joint-property. If she resides in an accommodation as an independent family unit with her husband and children, the matrimonial home would be that residential unit. This right is embedded in her right as a wife. It is implicit under the provisions of Section 18 of the Hindu Adoption and Maintenance Act, 1956 in situations that statute is applicable. The Protection of Women from Domestic Violence Act, 2005 has recognised the concept of “shared household” in terms of Section 2(s) of this statute. Alienating an immovable asset to defeat the right of a victim lady under the said Act can constitute domestic violence, coming, inter-alia, within the ambit of the expression “economic abuse” under Section 3(iv) of 2005 Act. A Magistrate having jurisdiction under Section 19 of the said Act is empowered to pass a residence order to protect a victim of domestic violence from being removed from her shared household. But for a husband to compel his wife to live in a separate household, which is not her matrimonial home, an order from appropriate legal forum would be necessary. There cannot be forcible dishousing of a wife from her matrimonial home. However, these remedies are to be availed in other legal proceedings, and not in a writ petition against a builder.However, the Court passed some directions under Article 142 of the Constitution of India to secure her demand for alternate housing, and granted liberty to the appellant to initiate appropriate legal proceedings to establish her right to reside in her matrimonial home with her husband.Case DetailsTitle : Aishwarya Atul Pusalkar vs Maharashtra Housing and Area Development AuthorityCase No : Civil Appeal No. 7231/2012Click Here To Download Judgment[Read Judgment] Subscribe to LiveLaw, enjoy Ad free version and other unlimited features, just INR 599 Click here to Subscribe.
