Right to reputation

A good reputation is an element of personal security and is protected by the Constitution equally with the right to the enjoyment of life, liberty and property

We often read newspaper reports of judges allegedly commenting on the work and conduct of the executive and its members. Very recently, my wife, Nutan, and I found ourselves in a somewhat similar situation when the Lucknow bench of the Allahabad High Court made certain statements about both of us in separate Public Interest Litigations (PILs). Both the cases are still under judicial process and hence I cannot and shall not make any comment on them except to quote them and academically discuss some of the issues that naturally arise out of them.
