"Justice cannot be taken to street". SC warned over behavior of a leader.

"Justice cannot be taken to street. It is not acceptable. These things should stop. These are not good things. We are the upholders of the laws" the Division Bench of the Hon. justices Mr. R M Lodha and Mr. H L Gokhale, while granting a stay against a Kerala High Court order of a sentence of imprisonment, recently expressed serious concern, in the aforesaid words over the behaviour of CPI-M leader M V Jayarajan, who had allegedly ridiculed the performance of two high court judges in public and making derogatory remarks. The bench also showed displeasure over the High Court decision for immediate implementation of its order leading to his arrest and not granting the politician time to approach the apex court. Taking a strong view of offensive remarks made against judges and the judiciary by Jayarajan, the High Court had on November 8 sentenced him to six months imprisonment for contempt of court, upon a suo moto proceedings.

  1. The Hon Apex Court has rightly defined how and where the Justice should be admeasured in a democratic country like India, but it is still unfortunate that Justice is taken frequently to the street.. and the same is so done by our politicians, who believe that Justice is to be made by the public and that in the street... Recently it is widely reported today in media that the President of BJP Mr. Nitin Gadakari stated in a press conference in public at Nagpur that the release of BJP MP Mr. Sudhir Kiukarni and others on bail in highly debated "Cash-For-Vote" case by High Court has allegedly proved that it was a political conspiracy to throw these BJP leaders in jail. Now the vital Question of laws , at this juncture, is only that whether such a responsible leader of BJP can prejudge about the innocence of their party persons involved in such serious criminal case, before the matter is subjudice before appropriate forum of court. Release on Bail is not the final judgment and Justice is still not finally adjudicated. But such our leaders do take justice to the street every day in every such other instances... Is there any preventive remedy available in our system, in the large interest of justice ?
