What is the duty of the court while reading and interpretating any judgment?

 A judgment, as is well known, is not to be read as a statute. A judgment, it is trite, must be construed upon reading the same as a whole. For the said purpose the attendant circumstances may also be taken into consideration. [Islamic Academy of Education and Anr. v. State of Karnataka and Ors. MANU/SC/0580/2003 : AIR2003SC3724 , Zee Telefilms Ltd. and Anr. v. Union of India and Ors. MANU/SC/0074/2005 : AIR2005SC2677 and P.S. Sathappan v. Andhra Bank Ltd. - MANU/SC/0873/2004 : AIR2004SC5152 ].
