SC should take sue-motto cognizance of strange verdict of Ranchi court directing distribution of Quran as pre-condition of bail

Dear Editor,
It refers to strange-most decision of a Ranchi-court wherein the concerned judge granted bail to a young Hindu girl on pre-condition of distributing five copies of Islamic Quran. Such a decision is not only a forced court-attack on religious freedom of Hindu girl, but even has unnecessarily developed a religious disturbance when several Hindu organizations have stood in full support of the girl who has boldly decided not to abide with the court-order and to challenge the verdict in higher court. But big question is who will be responsible for mental torture and cost involved in challenging such a religiously-designed court-order.
Judges are also human-beings and should be treated like others for giving such disturbing verdicts not only hurting religious sentiments of the ordered person but also causing religious outrage. Supreme Court should take sue-motto cognizance of the unprecedented court-verdict and take steps that no judge may be giving such verdicts affecting religious freedom.
