Chennai: The Madras high court set aside an order of a single judge directing the state government to impose a dress code devotees worshipping in Tamil Nadu temples.

Allowing an appeal from the state government, a division bench comprising Justices V. Ramasubramanian and K. Ravichandrabaabu said, “Courts are not expected to adjudicate any matter academically in the absence of any real lis between parties. Courts are not entitled to create a controversy and adjudicate upon the same.

Therefore we respectfully disagree with the directions issued by the single judge and we are constrained to set aside the same and reserve it for an occasion, when a real litigation comes before us”.
