Open Letter to Chief Justice of India – Jagdish Singh Kheha – MOCKERY OF JUSTICE IN INDIA

My Lord,
As a former Advocate and an 88 years old Indian, I have witnessed very closely the happenings in our country since independence,  on the political, economic, social and judicial sectors.   In my view, all sectors have deteriorated very badly to a level where the Nation commands less respect.   I am frustrated that this should happen to our great nation, hence this letter to you.   You may dispose of it in any way you like, I am doing my duty as a responsible citizen to bring my concern to your kind notice’
I blame the Indian judiciary for being a willing contributory to this deterioration.   Over the last few years, people are beginning to suspect the effectiveness of judicial pronouncements at all levels of adjudication, more so of the High Courts and the Supreme Court.   You sentence a Sasikala from Chennai to four years imprisonment on proved corruption charges.   She is in jail, but is being treated as an erstwhile Maharani.   She can have any number of visitors, can hold political conferences with them, convey messages and instructions at will, has a special kitchen to cook her meals, lives a posh life style there.   Is she being punished or rewarded, is my question.   When we see visuals of her life in jail and what actually goes on there, we do envy her lot.   A Sanjay Dutt sentenced for unlicenced arms-keep was similarly treated and prematurely released.   A Sahabuddin is treated as a VIP in jail as a convict.   The grant or denial of bail would appear to vary ‘with the foot of the chancellor’.   Can we not standardise the procedures somewhat, at least to prevent flagrant distortions across the country?   The prevailing impression among people is that, if one has money or influence, almost any purpose can be served.
What kind of impression do these convey to the general public?   Is a court judgment so flimsy as to be negated by the bureaucracy?   Is the Court not feeling a hurt pride to its Majesty, and its motto of ” yatho dharma thathao jayah”?
When the mythological Hanuman was doubting if he had the ability to jump across the waters to Lanka and discover Sita, a Jambavan reminded him of his prowess and Hanuman felt empowered, achieved his task, effortlessly.   Like Jambavan, I am reminding you, you have the power and authority to correct the distortions, just find the will to do it.   The Nation will be grateful, you will be remembered as a redeemer, the Indian Legal System would stand tall and in all its ancient Majesty.
Most respectably.
Advocate (Retd.)
