Outgoing-Retiring Chief Justices of India, express their anguish about the hundreds of thousands of cases piling up in Indian Judicial System, owing to shortage of Judges, Court Rooms. Justice Thakur was one among them. He emotion filled appeals also did not melt the hearts of our National Rulers, both of the UPA, and the NDA. Shri Narendra Modi, Hon. Prime Minister of India, is reported to have remarked, about the functioning of Indian Judicial System:--
|Hon. Prime Minister's alleged Remark||ybrao a donkey's personal view, not intended to be imposed on others|
|“...It is never too difficult to deliver justice within the boundaries of the law and Constitution. But it is very difficult to find the truth between perception and reality. It must be pondered over whether five-star activists are driving the judiciary today… if havoc is created to drive the judiciary. It has become difficult to deliver justice in an atmosphere of perception...”||Hon. Narendra Modi may be pointing out his finger towards NGOs and Activists such as Ms. Teesta Setalvad, an Indian civil rights activist and journalist, reported to be the secretary of Citizens for Justice and Peace (CJP), an organisation formed for fighting for justice for the victims of communal violence in the state of Gujarat in 2002. CJP is a co-petitioner seeking a criminal trial of Narendra Modi, the then Chief Minister of Gujarat and the current Prime minister of India and sixty-two other politicians and government officials for complicity in the Gujarat violence of 2002 and whose names did not figure in any of the FIRs /charge sheets that formed the subject matter of the various Session Trials regarding the riots at that point of time. |
No. of such Foreign-Aided litigations may be few in number. They need not be treated as nuissance. Ultimately when they are disposed off by the Judiciary as appropriate on merits, the Foreign Donors will get a message that their Finances were futile. On the other hand, if the Indian Government, or the Indian Courts shun such litigations, the Foreign Donors may use such as instances as their Publicity Material.
Problems of Law and Order in Indian States are essentially India's domestic internal issue, about which Foreign Organisations, and their branches-subsidiaries in India cannot have any locus standi. Their trying to interfere into India's internal affairs, that will not only be against Geneva Convention, but also, other priorities of Global Organisations will get neglected.
The Sufferings of the Indian Judicial System, and the activities of Foreign Contribution Beneficiary Human Rights Activists, may have to be dealt with separately. The Indian Judiciary can effectively deal with frivolous/vexatious litigation promoted by Groups receiving Foreign Contributions. Indian Judicial System does not need any prodding in this respect.
The problems of the Indian Judicial System are more serious, if we consider that Rule of Law is the backbone of our Democratic System. Indian Political Rulers cannot use Foreign-Promoted-Litigations pending in Courts, as a Lever to make Indian Judiciary subservant to Indian Politicians.
