In particular, Justices S.K. Kaul and Pushpa Sathyanarayana for their clear-eyed verdict in the Perumal Murugan case. In unequivocally stating that “if you do not like a book, throw it away” and “all writings unpalatable for one section of the ­society cannot be labelled as obscene, vulgar, depraving, prurient and immo­ral”, the two judges have ­spoken for liberals across the country who are increasingly being held at ­ransom by hoodlums and lynch mobs acting on behalf of partisans and vested interests. Literature, art, films, music...there is not a sphere of modern life ­unsullied by the exertions of the philistines. Hopefully, this judgement will serve as a warning bell against the doors of liberal thought being slammed shut.
