Euthanasia: A 360 degree analysis

Euthanasia: A 360 degree analysis

Euthanasia literally means good death and is derived from two ancient Greek words – ‘Eu’ meaning good and ‘thantos’ meaning death. According to the House of Lords Select Committee on Medical Ethics, euthanasia is ‘a deliberate intervention undertaken with the express intention of ending life to relieve intractable suffering’.

Pre Sentence Hearing

Pre Sentence Hearing

The object of the criminal trial is to determine whether the accused person is guilty of the offence he is charged with or not. Guilt once established the sentencing dilemma begins. A wide discretion is given to the judges in sentencing the offenders.-

Doctrine of proportionality

The doctrine of proportionality is emerging as another new ground of judicial review of administrative action. It is very well entrenched in the continental system of administrative law. Initially common law countries including India adopted the doctrine of wednesbury reasonableness to review administrative action.

But subsequently under influence of civil law systems and Strasburg jurisprudence the doctrine of proportionality is being gradually accepted as the standard of judicial review by the common law countries. It is claimed that this doctrine is capable to control arbitrariness in the administrative action effectively. The principle of judicial review that court cannot go into the merit of the decision and the doctrine of proportionality that allows the reviewing court to probe some aspect of the merits of the case is the matter of reconciliation.

The Indian Supreme Court accepted the doctrine of proportionality in the year 2000. Yet even today the Indian legal system has not come to terms with the doctrine. There is hardly any case where the doctrine has been practically applied. The need of the hour is to increasingly apply the doctrine of proportionality to review administrative action in India.

Pakistan court annuls Zia-era change to Christian divorce law

The Lahore High Court on Monday restored Section 7 of the Christian Divorce Act, 1869, enabling Christian men to adopt a ’dignified way’ to divorce their wives.



Taking a cue from India, a Pakistani court has restored a law that was expunged by former military ruler Gen. Ziaul Haq, enabling Christian men to divorce their wives honourably without framing adultery charges.



The Lahore High Court on Monday restored Section 7 of the Christian Divorce Act, 1869, enabling Christian men to adopt a ’dignified way’ to divorce their wives.



The section had been expunged through an ordinance by Gen. Zia in 1981, leaving no ground for Christian men to divorce their wives except on adultery charges.



Admitting the petitioner’s plea and the federal government counsel’s arguments that India has changed this Act too, Justice Syed Mansoor Ali Shah restored the law and declared the Zia-era ordinance null and void.



Federal government’s counsel Hina Hafeezullah said India has also changed the law to facilitate Christian community.



She argued that the language used in the section was “very offensive”.



Petitioner Amin Masih, who wanted to divorce his wife but not on adultery charges, had requested the court to restore the provision undone by the military ruler 35 years ago.



Mr. Masih said he did not want to level the “false allegation” of adultery against his wife.



He said the condition of accusing wife of adultery for divorce should be abolished for being unconstitutional and inhuman.



“There are just and reasonable grounds, other than adultery, to divorce a Christian woman,” he said.



Punjab government’s Assistant Advocate-General Anwar Hussain said the provincial government wanted to amend this controversial law, but it was not possible because of lack of consensus among the Christian community leadership.



He said several countries had started the process to amend the Christian divorce law since 1918.



The court was also told that in the past many Christian men and women changed their religion to divorce each other honourably. The existing law was detrimental to the dignity of Christian women.
