Abstract

India has recently witnessed violent outbursts over trivial incidents ranging from kissing in public, to holding hands or dancing in bars. The law and justice machinery has been put in motion in almost all cases. The author has tried to examine this rising trend in light of the eternal law and morality conflicts. It has been argued that the over-pervasiveness of morality in legal domain is the predominant factor behind such unfortunate occurrences. Infact, law and morality must remain, so far as practicable, exclusive of each other.

Keywords: Law, Morality, Criminal Law
