Parasaran: The 92-year old man who was lawyer for ‘Ram Lalla Virajman’

If you had been a part of legal procedures or even observed them, you would realize that lawyers stand up when they put forth their arguments. In the 40-day hearing that occurred in Supreme Court Parasaran was contending for Ram Lalla Virajman. There were many cases where he set forth the arguments before the Muslim gatherings.

During the hearing, one day the Chief Justice of India (CJI) asked Parasaran, “Might you want to sit and argue?” But he stated, “My Lord, you are very kind. But it has been a tradition that one must get up and put forth the arguments. I hold this tradition very dear.” The reason why the CJI posed this inquiry was Parasaran’s age. The man who spent hours arguing in the court was 92 years of age.


About Parasaran

During the Emergency imposed by former Prime Minister Indira Gandhi, Parasaran was the Advocate General of Tamil Nadu and in 1980 he was designated Solicitor General of India. Between 1983 to 1989, he filled in as the Attorney General of India.

At the point when he began his argument in the Supreme Court, he portrayed the criticalness of Ram Janmabhoomi for Hindus thus: “Janani Janma-bhoomi-scha swargadapi gariyasi (mother and homeland are more greater than the heaven above).”

He had argued in the Sabarimala case also. He is viewed as a specialist Hindutva. Parasaran, who was a Rajya Sabha Member of Parliament from 2012 to 2018 has been a most loved lawyer for some state governments. He has such a great amount of knowledge about religious books that he refers to them in any event, during his arguments in the court. Sanjay Kishan Kaul, former Chief Justice of Madras High Court called him ‘Pitamah’ of Indian laws who contributed a great deal without settling on the religion.

During Sabarimala case, he had argued against allowing entry of women of menstruating age from entering the temple complex. He put forth the arguments on behalf of the devotees. On account of Ram Setu, the two sides attempted to have him contend for their benefit. Although consistent with religion and remaining loyal to it, he contended for the benefit of the Ram Setu. He did this to save the SetuSamudram project. “This is the least I could accomplish for my Lord Ram,” he had said. He used to say, “It is my last wish before I die that I take this case to its logical end.”

Parasaran and his long residency as a lawyer has been of extraordinary enthusiasm among understudies. Indeed, three college understudies also authored a book on him, titled, Law and Dharma: A tribute to the Pitamaha of the Indian Bar, in 2016.
