A Judge of the Gujarat High Court Faces Impeachment By Parliament:
A distinguished Parsi judge of the Gujarat High Court, Justice J B Pardiwala made the following remarks in his recent judgement in Hardik Patel case on Reservations. Unfortunately, our law makers are going to impeach him for this para. Let’s see what he said and decide:
“If I am asked by anyone to name two things, which has destroyed this country or rather, has not allowed the country, to progress in the right direction, then the same is, (i) Reservation and (ii) Corruption. It is very shameful for any citizen of this country to ask for reservation after 65 years of independence. When our Constitution was framed, it was understood that the reservation would remain for a period of 10 years, but unfortunately, it has continued even after 65 years of independence. The biggest threats, today, for the country is corruption. The countrymen should rise and fight against corruption at all levels, rather than shedding blood and indulging in violence for the reservation. The reservation has only played the role of an amoeboid monster sowing seeds of discord amongst the people. The importance of merit, in any society, cannot be understated.”
One has to wonder why is he going to be impeached by MPs (mostly Congress MPs).
(The MPs who signed the petition include Anand Sharma, Digvijay Singh, Ashwani Kumar, P L Punia, Rajeev Shukla, Oscar Fernandes, Ambika Soni, B K Hariprasad (all Congress), D Raja (CPI), K N Balagopal (CPI-M), Sharad Yadav (JD-U), S C Misra and Narinder Kumar Kashyap (BSP), Tiruchi Siva (DMK) and D P Tripathi (NCP)).
YOU DON’T HAVE TO CANDLE MARCH to SUPPORT THE JUDGE. Just SPREAD THE WORD BY SHARING THIS WITH YOUR WHATSAPP FRIENDS, IF YOU CAN. That’s minimum we can do to SUPPORT the OUTSPOKEN JUDGE.
