Justice Bhaktavatsala’s remarks in the High Court legitimizing the
criminal act of domestic violence have horrified the city and indeed the
entire country.

To protest such absolutely misogynistic mindset reflecting the dominant
attitudes of society that sanction violence against women, we are
gathering in protest on Monday September 10, 2012 from 12.30 pm onwards.
_/If you wish to join us in the protest, kindly email us in advance so
we can inform you (later) about the site of the protest./_

*Please come dressed in black and we will stand in silence with placards
to express our outrage over Justice Bhaktavatsala’s actions. (If you
prefer to bring your own messages, please note that displaying them will
be subject to review by Vimochana and other organisers).*

Following the protest we will present the attached memorandum to the
Chief Justice. If you wish to endorse the memorandum, please email us
your name, affiliation and contact details no later than Sunday night
(9th September).

We look forward to your endorsement and/or your presence in the protest.

All of us from Vimochana.
