The Supreme Court of India has been held in very high esteem, but now a growing number of observers and citizens feel that the court needs major reforms and transparency in its dealings. Recently, 4 of the senior most judges after the CJI publicly rebelled against the  Chief Justice.

The list of issues raised in recent months and past years include:

  • senior judges are kept of of constitution bench cases;
  • cases are randomly assigned or forum shopping where cases are assigned to judges based on the hope of a verdict;
  • in 2010 it was alleged that 9 out 16 judges were corrupt at one time, no written procedures or documentation on who are nominated to be next judges on selection of new judges;
  • judges and their family member not being required to make public their assets that other public officials are required to;
  • unexpected judgements, overuling good judgements of lower courts; and
  • even objecting to the setup of a National Judicial Oversight Committee.

Something needs to be done fast to fix the rot and restore the court’s stature.

In 1989-90, with Rajiv Gandhi as PM and Farooq Abdullah as CM, 400,000 Kashmiri Pandits, Sikhs & Others FACED GENOCIDE - were slaughtered or forced to leave Kashmir overnight. "The Kashmir Files" shows only a small part of this. Should a Kashmir Genocide Law be made and the atrocities be fully investigated?

आपकी राय

1989-90 में, राजीव गांधी के प्रधान मंत्री और फारूक अब्दुल्ला के मुख्यमंत्री के रूप में, 400,000 कश्मीरी पंडितों, सिखों और अन्य लोगों को नरसंहार का सामना करना पड़ा - या तो रातों-रात कश्मीर छोड़ने के लिए मजबूर होना पड़ा । "द कश्मीर फाइल्स" इसका एक छोटा सा हिस्सा ही दिखाता है। क्या कश्मीर में हुए नरसंहार पर कानून बनाया जाना चाहिए और अत्याचारों की पूरी जांच होनी चाहिए?
