A case of “justice denied”

The Supreme Court of India, in July 2017, declined to entertain a petition seeking investigation into the alleged mass murder of Kashmiri Pandits in the valley in 1989-90, during the heights of militancy.

“How can there be a probe into a matter that happened 27 years ago?” a Bench led by the Chief Justice of India J.S. Khehar, the first Sikh CJI, asked the counsel representing an organisation called the Roots In Kashmir, which had filed the said petition. The court in its order explained that the instances of alleged crime referred to were of 27 years ago and any evidence regarding then was unlikely to surface at that point of time (2017).

The larger question was if the Highest Court of the country could take any decision on such a large-scale, sensitive and violent issue just by ordering that evidence was unlikely to surface after 27 years? In other words, the Supreme Court’s said order was devoid of objectivity. The Supreme Court was not sure beyond all doubts in its order. Then, why did it not explore the ‘likeliness’ of surfacing of the evidence? The ‘benefit of doubt’ was to go in favour of the petitioner representing the Hindu victims of Kashmir valley.

The counsel of Roots In Kashmir argued that the events affected 40,000 families and 700 lost their lives. The Chief Justice Mr. Khehar then asked why they had to wait for 27 years to seek justice. To this, the counsel replied that the community had banked on the “legitimate expectation” that successive governments would bring them justice. “But theirs was only lip service,” the counsel submitted. However, the Supreme Court of India declined to hear the case.

If the wisdom of the Chief Justice of India in declining to give justice to the victims of Islamic Jihad in Kashmir valley, for appealing before the Supreme Court after a long gap of 27 years, was so sacrosanct, then how an Additional Director General of Police of Uttar Pradesh could file FIRs in the cases of two Acid Attack Victim women after 20 and 22 years of occurrence of crime respectively and initiated investigations to give justice to the two unfortunate women? The link below gives details of the two cases.


While Pandits in Kashmir were being killed, raped and uprooted in tens of thousands by Islamic Jihadis, Indians in the other parts of the country were immersed in the aftermath of Srinagar’s Dal Lake based peace loving familial TV drama Gul Gulshan Gulfaam of Doordarshan. Islamist-Leftist gang of India today cries against Central government for banning the malignant propaganda of BBC on Gujarat riots 2002, but in 1990s both Central and Jammu-Kashmir governments were systematically banning all the news of the continued genocide of Pandits in Kashmir. Even Milords of the Supreme Court of India, who had access to their own intelligence, forgot taking suo motu cognizance of that genocide.

Wokeism has infiltrated Indian Judiciary at the height level. Considering the physical, material, emotional and life loss of 40,000 Hindu families in Kashmir, the Supreme Court of India was morally and legally bound to give a sincere try for collection of evidence by the investigating agencies. But instead, it surrendered before the agenda of Woke-Islamist ecosystem and left the Kashmiri Pandit sufferers high and dry in a civilized country. This was a clear case of Justice Denied.

While examining the career of Justice Khehar in the Supreme Court of India, it is found that in the high voltage Instant Triple Talaq case, the then Chief Justice Mr. Khehar supported it as an integral part of Islamic faith. But in the split-verdict of 3:2, Instant Triple Talaq became illegal in India. Justice Khehar led a five-Judge Constitutional Bench in 2015 also, which quashed National Judicial Appointments Commission (NJAC) Act 2014 calling that unconstitutional and upheld the continuation of the much controversial Collegium System
