India standing ‘with Pride’ on ‘caste DYNAMITE’
In an interview with Shekhar Gupta for an Indian National Newspaper, Indias leading constitutional expert observes Indian courts are not ruled by ‘rule of law’ but by ‘judice of caste-connections’.
Fali Sam Narimanhas been President of the Bar Association of India, President of International Council for Commercial Arbitration (ICCA), VP- ICC (International Chamber of Commerce), Member of the International Commission of Jurists (ICJ), , Padma Bhushan, President of LAWASIA (Law Association for Asia and the Pacific),on Advisory Board of the United Nations Conference on Trade and Development (UNCTAD).
Following are his views:
“…the greatest problem with our courts, high courts particularly, is the problem of caste. If you are a lawyer belonging to a particular caste appearing before a judge of such and such caste, you will either lose or win depending upon your caste”.
He goes on to push the idea of a judicial ombudsman as a check built into the system to “inquire into the complaints against High Court judges and Supreme Court judges. Keep it to himself, quietly consult the Chief Justice, take his views and move in a particular direction”.
But the Dinakaran case, has surely taken out serious lacunae in the Indian judicial system portraying a dynamite in the form of caste mindsets. Such caste tendencies are inflicting atrocities on oppressed lower castes especially Dalits. India is standing on caste dynamite, for sure, that would blow up nation in no time !
Naxals getting easy fuel! What you say readers?
