E Lawyer Thoughts Enduku Ila Unnayi?

Recommended Posts


ML Sharma and AK Singh are defence lawyers for the four men on death row for brutally gang-raping and killing a 23-year-old medical student in a moving bus in Delhi in December 2012.

In the film 'India's Daughter' - banned in India and telecast by the BBC,  Mr Sharma has at one point said that there is no place for women in Indian culture. Both AK Singh and he make other outrageous comments too.

Reportedly, advocate M L Sharma, has reportedly given a statement reflecting gender bias.

“If you keep sweets on the street then dogs will come and eat them. Why did Nirbhaya’s parents send her with anyone that late at night? He was not her boyfriend. Is it not the parents’ responsibility to keep an eye on where she goes and with whom?” he was quoted as saying. Sharma also reportedly said that such incidents are bound to happen if girls go out without proper security.

While defence lawyers are duty bound to defend clients in court,he should not  justify his client’s conduct outside court.

In a news report published in the Indian Express, Bar Council of India Chairman Manan Kumar Mishra has said the lawyers’ body cannot initiate action on its own without any complaint , He is quoted to say “Unless and until the council gets a complaint in writing, we cannot initiate any action. Until now, we have not received any complaint in this regard."“Once the complaint comes, we will examine that and only then we can do anything. Comments against women appear to be unwarranted, but we cannot do anything unless we get some complaint in this regard"
