In many countries, defamation is no longer a criminal offence. It’s high time India changed a law used most of the time to harass and intimidate.

Life is also mentioned in Article 21 and would Government argument extend to it also?

Hans Raj Khanna (Judge)

The Constitution and the laws of India do not permit life and liberty to be at the mercy of the absolute power of the Executive. What is at stake is the rule of law.

Hans Raj Khanna (Judge)

The question is whether the law speaking through the authority of the court shall be absolutely silenced and rendered mute detention without trial is an anathema to all those who love personal liberty.

Hans Raj Khanna (Judge)

(Mentioned to his sister) I have prepared my judgment, which is going to cost me the Chief Justice-ship of India.

Hans Raj Khanna (Judge)

If the Indian constitution is our heritage bequeathed to us by our founding fathers, no less are we, the people of India, the trustees and custodians of the values which pulsate within its provisions! 

Hans Raj Khanna (Judge)

A constitution is not a parchment of paper, it is a way of life and has to be lived up to. 

Hans Raj Khanna (Judge)

Eternal vigilance is the price of liberty and in the final analysis, its only keepers are the people. Imbecility of men, history teaches us, always invites the impudence of power.

Hans Raj Khanna (Judge)

In Kanhaiya’s and the other students’ case, it is clear that the prosecution is throwing the book at them. They are using standard delaying tactics and opposing his bail.

Well, in our days, choosing a career in law, was not a matter of choice but circumstance. Often one did not set out to become a lawyer, but did drift into the profession after exhausting most other avenues. 

Sanjay Hegde (Advocate)

Practice simple things like public speaking and elocution. You would be surprised to see how badly some people express themselves in court, and how judges are grateful to any lawyer who can clearly state the problem, before attempting to persuade them to his side.

Sanjay Hegde (Advocate)

Eternal vigilance is the price of liberty. Institutions must zealously guard against being undermined from within.

In the West, where free speech is protected as almost an absolute fundamental right, these protests could only be token in nature.

Sanjay Hegde (Advocate)

Outraging religious sensibilities in the US does not warrant criminal prosecution. Realising the West was not to be won, the battle to bury the book was shifted to India.

Sanjay Hegde (Advocate)

The Juvenile Justice Bill has been passed in the Rajya Sabha and there isn't much that we can do about it except lament this terrible harsh punishment designed to stop a problem by creating another.
