Is it only me who feels that Congress party has managed to subvert the Supreme Court too? It is well known that many ex-judges sit in commissions and enquiry committees, and deliver tailor-made reports to further the political interests of the Congress and other “secularists.”
But the sitting judges too? I am quite troubled by many of the recent Supreme Court judgements, such as the one on gay ruling. It is amazing how casually that ruling was delivered without any sensitivity to the prevailing social and cultural norms of India. Now, look at how quickly and without any review petition being filed, the supreme court judges edited their judgement to remove references to forcible converions of poor Hindus to Christianity. Something doesn’t seem right nowadays with India’s higher judiciary.
