The whole process of impeachment is political

To call it a revenge petition is the craziest thing I have heard

When there is arbitrariness, the other Judges cannot be silent spectators

All Is Not Well Within the SC & This Needs Correction

Kasab’s execution was a different case. Kasab did not have family here. (Afzal Guru hailed from Sopore in North Kashmir). The least they could have done was inform his family, his wife.

I am totally against the death penalty. How can a state take a life? It’s a myth that it acts as a deterrent. How can it act as a deterrent, particularly in cases such as this one?

If this doesn't happen, if the appointment does not go through, I would say that would be the blackest day for the judiciary of India. Justice Gogoi is one of our finest judges. He has come out openly on principle. It is true that an outgoing judge recommends the new CJI (Chief Justice of India) that's the reality. But I am sure that the wiser counsel will prevail and there would not be such adventure

It is a purely political issue. I'm not sure of the purpose for this impeachment. The opposition doesn't have the numbers. There is a possibility that the Speaker may or may not accept the motion. Then the matter will have to be taken to Supreme Court and in that process the Chief Justice would retire by that time.

It is necessary that the chief justice of the high court or the Chief Justice of India himself should look into this material and decide whether to order an enquiry, because if these allegations are not investigated it causes serious stigma on the judiciary

Not enquiring into the allegations made by the family would send a very wrong signal to the judiciary, particularly the lower cadre.

There is no need for me to be cryptic about why I choose to speak on this subject. All of you are well aware of what it is that I am referring to. But it is worth recapturing just briefly, if only to re-emphasise the importance and gravity of the incident, which I worry that perhaps we have not fully grasped.

The judiciary in India is unarguably an institution that enjoys the trust of the people. It is perhaps one of the most powerful institutions in the country, and is highly regarded for having upheld constitutional principles time and again over the past decades.

When the four judges held this press conference, some commentators speculated that this amounted to gross impropriety on their part, and their actions smacked of judicial misconduct. While they have not attempted to defend their actions thereafter, it seems unlikely that they would not have assessed the implications of these events.

Today, in India, we do not talk of inclusive nationalism. What we have is a situation of enforced cultural nationalism. It is a culture of hate that is being perpetrated in the name of nationalism.

As Tagore said, when the nation becomes powerful at the cost of the harmony of social life, that day is an evil day for humanity. What do we have today instead? People speak of removing the thoughts of Tagore from textbooks!
