Some Writ Warriors

For a person who wants to bring a change in society, a writ petition is a very important legal privilege. In Nepal, over the years, many writ warriors have risen and brought revolutionary changes to the legal system. For instance, we might all know that many years ago, the LGBTQ+ community’s rights were not guaranteed in practice properly. They had to go through lots of societal pressures and exploitations.

The gender identity and sexual orientation of these community people were rejected and claimed to be unnatural in many instances. They couldn’t live their life with dignity. To overcome this issue and make sure that the country looks after the protection of the rights of the LGBTQ+ community, Sunil Babu Panta filed a Public Interest Litigation (PIL) in the Supreme Court.

Another writ warrior of Nepal is Pun Devi Maharjan, who filed a writ petition for social security and the protection of Kumari’s child rights, the living goddess of Nepal.

This is how several common citizens of the country challenge the system of government and bring the desired significant change in the society. So, do you think you are ready to be the next writ warrior?
