Hundreds of young people die in India due to dishonour killings merely because they love someone or marry outside their caste or against their family's wishes, Chief Justice of India (CJI) DY Chandrachud said on Saturday, in a speech on "Law and Morality", according to legal news website Bar and Bench. Referring to several cases linked to morality, like the 'breast tax', Section 377 that criminalised homosexuality, ban on bar dances in Mumbai, and striking down adultery, he said the dominant groups decide the code of conduct and morality, overpowering the weaker groups.
