Bengaluru: According to sources, the Karnataka High Court disagreeing with the arguments of a petitioners’ counsel for equating the woman to a category has said that women is not a category, but a gender.

Justice M. Nagaprasanna made the remark while dismissing a petition filed by Abdulla Khan and five others, who questioned a State Government notification announcing Sira City Municipal Council reservation dated November 25, 2021.

The court informed that the petitioners’ argument that Ward No. 19 was reserved for the woman category in 2013 and will be reserved for the woman category again in 2021 amounts to a repetition of reservation is unacceptable.

It further said that, “What was reserved qua Ward No.19 in earlier elections was General (Woman), but now it is BCA (Woman). If the woman is not a category, the reserved categories were General and ‘BCA’ (Woman), which are different.”
