judiciary not acceptable
By Balbir Singh Sooch,

What to talk of the liking of any dictator for independent judiciary
even such judiciary is not the choice of politicians in India? Here
the majority of the lawyers if asked to give their opinion about
judiciary off the record, the net result would be very disappointing
except a few lawyers who have monopoly in the system, may opt to
keep quite or express differently.
The judiciary in India framed in such a manner that it shall never
be normally active and entertain any arguments on record against
government policies may be expressed or implied. Let these might be
adverse or harmful for masses especially minorities to any extent
like killing of Muslims in Gujarat and the genocide of Sikhs in
1984, though it all happened under the unwritten policies framed,
intentionally and deliberately, by the respective governments. No
body can deny to the prevailing discriminatory judicial system in
The Hon’ble court concerned may verbally utter harsh language in the
matter against the functionaries of government for newspaper
headlines only otherwise the net result would never be against the
unlawful and inhuman actions of the State machinery.
For the reason, every criminal and bad character likes to pose as a
politician considering himself fully protected as a part of State.
The rich and influenced is also always has upper hand in this
judicial system. The judges are working under the very tight
position and unable to hear or entertain such cases for justice
except verbal consolation.
