This chapter discusses the different reactions towards Pinhey’s judgment on the Dadaji Bhikaji v. Rukhmabai case. It presents the background of the sharp, and at times passionate, division over the issues involved in the case. The Times of India described the judgment as ‘the embodiment of righteousness and common sense’, while the Pioneer saw it as a simple argument that ended the evils of Hindu womanhood.

Keywords:   Pinhey, judgment, Dadaji Bhikaji v. Rukhmabai, issues, Times of India, Pioneer, Hindu womanhood
