I hate to have to say this but equality is a mirage in any society. Justice itself does not denote equality, we must pay attention to the peculiarities of all circumstances. That is why young persons cannot be imprisoned with adults, why pregnant women cannot be sentenced to death and why bigamy is a dead crime. The Courts do their best to interprete and apply the law to every situation.

Justice is flexible and Judges have tough decisions to make. Let us visit a court room on a free day and listen to proceedings, it will give a clearer understanding
