Sri Aurobindo Ashram Trust and Ors. v. R. Ramanathan and Ors. - (Supreme Court) (05 Jan 2016)

Sri Aurobindo Ashram trustees granted reprieve



The Supreme Court des[s]erted the Respondents in their quest to chastise Sri Aurobindo Ashram and its administrators for not condemning a book purporting to be a biography on Sri Aurobindo – variously a spiritualist, philosopher and writer. The book was deemed objectionable by followers of Sri Aurobindo, who demanded the Ashram take a proactive stand against its publishing and dissemination. Trustees of the organisation had steadfastly declined criticizing the book, choosing instead “dissociation”. The Court held that such an action did not warrant a removal of the trustees of the group, who were entitled to wide discretion in setting the administrative scheme. “A disagreement with the exercise of the discretion does not lead to a conclusion of maladministration”, the Supreme Court held.
