Victoria Gowri Career:

Victoria Gowri’s family has long been associated with the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP). She has been involved with Seva Bharati, a Sangh Parivar affiliate, since her undergraduate days. Gowri was selected to lead the party’s Women’s Wing in Kerala in October 2010. She was appointed National Secretary of the women’s wing in 2016.

Gowri began practicing in 1995 and formed her own firm two years later. The union government, led by the BJP, engaged her as their senior standing counsel at the Madras High Court in 2015; five years later, she was hired as the union government’s assistant solicitor general.

The Collegium of the Supreme Court of India approved her appointment as a judge of the Madras High Court on January 17, 2023. About a fortnight later, it was stated that she had made hate speeches against religious minorities — Christians and Muslims; Gowri was documented to have pushed the Islamophobic conspiratorial notion of Love jihad and described Christians as “white terrorists”. On February 1, some lawyers petitioned the President of India to remove her appointment, and then filed a case in the Supreme Court of India, requesting similar relief.

The Chief Justice of India, who chairs the Collegium, convened a two-judge court to hear the case about a week later on 6 February 2023; in oral remarks, he appeared to accept ignorance of Gowri’s speeches. However, minutes after the judgment, the Government approved the Collegium’s proposal, and the Chief Justice of the Madras High Court asked her to take the oath the following day. The hearing was postponed and heard on the morning of 7 January before a bench comprising Bhushan Ramkrishna Gavai and Sanjay Kishan Kaul; they dismissed the plea after an oral hearing, declining to dispute the collegium’s wisdom by adjudicating the “suitability” of a judge.

Gowri was sworn in simultaneously with the hearings, and she took an oath before the arguments before the Supreme Court had completed; the procedures would have been functionally infructuous even if the result had been adverse.
