For the first time in our country’s history, a Supreme Court came in front of media for a press conference that has never happened to date. 4 senior-most judges of SC – Justice Gogoi, Justice Lokur, Justice Joseph & Justice Chelameshwar What was their compulsion/helplessness to do something in front of media which has never happened in Indian history & a propaganda campaign has been started against them, they are calumniated & defamed. What’s the reason behind the same. Come, let’s understand. These 4 judges stated in the press conference that the country’s democracy is in danger since Judiciary is an Independent pillar of democracy & attempts are being made to pitch & seize it.
They have accused Chief justice of India(CJI) Deepak Mishra of bench fixing. i.e. whichever politically controversial case comes under them, he selectively passes them to such judges repeatedly who shall give favorable judgment This has happened multiple times & not once & judges stated that Justice Loya’s case was tipping point i.e. over the top or limits crossed & they were compelled to call a press conference. They tried plenty of other methods like speaking to CJI, writing letters to him but no satisfactory reply was received which forced them to do so. So, which were politically controversial cases that led them to do this. Let me tell you.
The first case was of the death of Justice Loya in which Amit Shah is accused, a very high profile case For those who don’t know about the case, let me not go into details and give you summarized form In 2010, Amit Shah went to jail for fake encounter case after which he got bail. In 2014, hearing for the same matter was pending in the CBI court. The first judge into the matter was transferred, the second judge was Justice Loya Ji. He put up plenty of hearing dates but Amit Shah never appeared. It repeatedly happened & finally, he put up a date- Dec.20th, 2014 for which Amit Shah had to definitely come. but coincidentally, Justice Loya died on 30th November 2014.
The report stated that he died of a heart attack, a sudden heart attack. which was all the more surprising because no one in their family history died due to heart attack cases. His parents’ age around 85years & both of them are alive, not a victim of a heart attack. He himself was fit and healthy & suddenly, a heart attack raised plenty of questions. The third judge who came to continue the proceeding discharged/cleared charges against Amit Shah within 1 month So Justice Loya’s death was declared natural death & public believed it for days till in 2017, Caravan magazine interviewed Justice Loya’s family in which they stated that they do not believe that his death was due to natural causes.
They also said that he was offered a bribe of 100 Crore if he has given a favorable judgment. justice Loya himself stated that he is under pressure to give favorable judgment Caravan’s story led to many questions on his death after which Tehseen Poonawalla filed a petition in Supreme Court for investigation on Loya’s death & Supreme Court was supposed to make a decision on the same on 12th January 2018. after which these 4 judges held a press conference and told that CJI Deepak Mishra has transferred this case to such bench which’ll give a favorable judgment and not a neutral judgment.
Such a bench is of lower order. Senior judges should have been given such a case but this didn’t happen. So, who are the judges to whom Justice Loya’s case has been passed? He is Justice Arun Mishra. His name is not specifically taken by 4 judges in a press conference but his name was given by Dushyant Dev, senior advocate on TV interview All political controversial cases/matters are given to Arun Mishra & he has links with plenty of top BJP leaders, In fact, he said that he is not openly accusing him since everyone knows that Arun Mishra is a man of BJP.
Hear it yourself. you have to understand that justice Arun Mishra to whom the bench/matter is assigned is known to have very clear political relations with BJP leadership. I have seen it with my own eyes. it is not an accusation. It is a fact. Everyone knows about it & judge. I was present myself. and as I said that this was not the only case that was given to selective judges Another high profile case was Sahara Birla Diaries which directly accused Prime Minister Narendra Modiji of corruption charges The accusation was that he took bribe worth crores directly himself when he was Gujarat’s, Chief Minister.
Prashant Bhushan filed an appeal in this matter for the conduct of investigation but our CJI transferred this case to Arun Mishra where he said that no investigation is needed since we do not feel it to be worthy. After this, another case in which CJI himself was accused of inquiry & this case was also given to Arun Mishra where he denied. Now you can think that the moment, the press conference of judges ended why the propaganda against the judges started after a few hours. and who all were participating?
Certainly, BJP IT cell paid Bhakts online, online troll army Times Now, Republic TV, our Godi media, all acted blatantly against our judges These 4 judges were subject to mudslinging, defamation in whatsoever manner to show somehow that they are backed by some political party and later on tried to portray that this ain’t big controversy but an internal rift between judges & within 1 day, WhatsApp forward arrived depicting that these 4 judges are guilty, working inappropriately anti-national, left, liberal, media, communist congress, Pakistani agent, CIA Agent all are funding them to do so. Our 70-year-old Congress was planning to somehow get back in power so they are making judges say so through press conference Don’t know where do these people get such logic?
Through all WhatsApp forward, Godi media TV channels, social media & arguments were made that since it is an internal rift, it should be solved internally & shouldn’t be told to public since it is “Internal matter” Since propaganda campaign has started against these judges, I would like to tell you truth about them. Justice Chelameshwar, one of the 4 judges is the same judge who declared Right to Privacy as a fundamental right for every Indian For us(as citizens), he ruled Right to privacy as Fundamental right while Govt. was fighting in against motion stating that Citizens shouldn’t have Right to privacy he is the same judge who said that Aadhar card shouldn’t be imposed on public not to be made mandatory and it should people’s choice for choosing Aadhar.
He is the same judge who declared section 66A of IT Act as unconstitutional if you don’t know about IT Act, then this is the same act through which if you wrote humorously on Facebook, twitter about rich, powerful people, police can put you behind bars that too according to this act & Justice Chelameshwar declared such act as unconstitutional. While on the other side, WhatsApp forward is trying to portray CJI Deepak Mishra as hero They state that he was the one who gave death sentence to Afzal guru & Nirbhaya’s rapists which is correct, but it forgot to state that he is the same judge who made National Anthem mandatory in cinema halls. & whomsoever I meet, all agree that cinema hall is not a place for national Anthem Here, standing before watching item numbers such as Sheila ki jawani to show patriotism since it’s not the right place.
If it had been imposed in Parliament or before the court’s hearing, it might have worked. Even Deepak Mishra gave another judgment which I believe is wrong since he declared criminal defamation as constitutionally valid. Criminal defamation is the same law that is misused in today’s time. that you cannot write, talk about big politician else defamation suits of 100 Cr, 1000 Cr shall be lodged. A common man cannot raise voice against them since we do not have enough money to fight defamation suits propagandists are targeting Justice Gogoi by spreading that his family, relatives were in Congress while they won’t tell you that CJI Deepak Mishra’s uncle himself was in Congress somehow trying to create personality fight among judges which is NOT True.
They won’t even tell you that Narendra Modi Ji’s principal secretary Nipendra Mishra was seen outside CJI Deepak Mishra’s residence in his car, one day after the press conference when he was asked about what was he doing, he said that he went to give New year greetings i.e. 13 days after New Year, he went to give greetings(Slow Claps) So, friends important fact is not to distract from the main issue Somewhere the biggest issue is that Govt. is trying to pitch pillar of the judiciary.
We have 4 pillars of democracy: legislature, executive, Judiciary, Free Media Media has gone silent since it has nothing left & Govt. is trying its level best to get its influence on judiciary & this is not first attempt to do so. Earlier in 2016, CJI TS Thakur started crying while delivering a speech in front of Modiji to save the judiciary since the appointment of judges is reducing. Then afterward, Arvind Kejriwal, Delhi’s Chief Minister while giving a speech in front of judges said that attempts are being made to tap Judges’ phone calls to undermine the judiciary. Afterward, Govt. tried to bring in such law through which it can increase its influence on the judiciary. The law was NJAC which gave power to Govt. that Govt.
