Showing affection – A crime or not?

 

A recent case in Kerala state upheld and gradually supported the power of school authorities to suspend someone out of the school on the basis of taking out their privacy. Article 21 of Indian constitution says that right to life and personal liberty must be given to every individual, also they cannot suspend these rights whatsoever.

A 16-year-old boy showing affection to opposite-sex of the same age is not a crime rather tells the world that humanity is alive despite all the suffering world is facing. Kerala high court restricting the powers and functions of KSCR organization and giving the power to various schools for adolescent behavior processes and such cases as to which students were punished for something or did wrong.

Being a private school, they must be having internal policies which every student must follow else school authorities may take any action against the same for non-compliance of the same. The question comes whether private schools have the power to take into account students online profile like Facebook, Instagram and various other social sites in which they post their private pictures?

In my view, right to privacy is violated here by the school authorities and this case must be filed above for appeal. Life of a student must not be deprived of taking its personal liberty from him.
