CHENNAI (New York) – Tamil Nadu Chief Minister M K Stalin reiterated his calls for a Supreme Court bench in Chennai and a Madras high court for Tamil.Stalin said that at the 25th anniversary celebrations of the State Human Rights Commission (SHRC), I made these demands earlier at an event where the Chief Justice of India was present.As a reminder to people and attorneys here, I repeat the same demands at this meeting, where justices have been invited as guests.The CM said there will be positions in the SHRC.He noted that the SHRC was established in Tamil Nadu in 1997 as Chief Minister Kalaignar (M Karunanidhi), though it had been discussed since 1993.We have always been extremely vigilant when it comes to defending human rights.The Constitution's fundamental points are those related to human rights, such as the right to expression and expression, the right to gather, the right to employment, religious rights, education, and the right to be treated with dignity.It is up to the governments to ensure that these rights are respected, and I promise that these aspects will never be compromised. Educational has been a significant tool of empowerment, according to Supreme Court Judge Sanjay Kishan Kaul.Education is the first thing that can empower women by itself, followed by equal ownership of family assets, in light of the laws concerning the rights of women.These initiatives together will empower women.One-third of all judicial officers are women, not because of any disability but because of their own educational qualifications. Tamil Nadu had started empowering the dalit community earlier than other states, according to the judge.He said that the SHRC stands between the individual and the state and is able to do things that the judiciary would not be able to do.It is in a unique position to work with civil society.It will take suo motu cognition of human rights abuses, he said. In today's world of human rights, we are blessed to stand on the shoulders of giants like Vallalar and Periyar, who taught us the greatest love for others by example, he said.At the reception, National Human Rights Commission chairman Arun Mishra and Madras high court Chief Justice Munishwar Nath Bhandari were also present.
