न्यायमूर्ति काटजू! साल में 2-3 बार लंदन जाने का मौका क्या ऊंचा ओहदा नहीं है?

द प्रिंट की खबर पर न्यायमूर्ति काटजू का एतराज सहमत होने लायक नहीं है… न्यायमूर्ति मार्कंडेय काटजू ने न्यायमूर्ति सीकरी मामले में अंग्रेजी में फेसबुक पर एक पोस्ट लिखा है। इसका शीर्षक अगर हिन्दी में लिखा जाए तो ये होगा- ‘क्या भारतीय मीडिया को शर्म नहीं है?’ इस पोस्ट में उन्होंने कहा है न्यायमूर्ति सीकरी …

अमेरिका से काटजू ने मोदी को लिखा पत्र- ‘न विकास हुआ, न अच्छे दिन आए’

To

The Hon’ble Shri Narendra Modi

Prime Minister of India

Dear Modiji,

I would have liked to personally deliver this letter to you, but unfortunately ( or fortunately ) I am presently in America, and likely to be here for some time. So I am posting it on fb, with the hope that someone will forward it to you.

दर्जन भर से ज्यादा छोटे बड़े एंकर्स को ग्रुप मेल भेजकर जस्टिस काटजू ने यह दी सलाह

अपनी बेबाक टिप्पणियों के लिए चर्चित जस्टिस मार्कंडेय काटजू ने दर्जन भर से ज्यादा छोटे बड़े न्यूज चैनल एंकर्स Ravish Kumar, Barkha, Arnab Goswami, Rahul Kanwal, Bhupendra Chaubey, Nidhi Razdan, Karan Thapar, Rajdeep Sardesai, Sagarika Ghose आदि को ग्रुप मेल भेज कर यह सलाह दी है-

यूपी चुनाव में अखिलेश को पूर्ण बहुमत, भाजपा थर्ड नंबर पर होगी : जस्टिस काटजू

By Justice Markandey Katju

The U.P. Assembly Elections :  U.P. is the largest state in India, and so what happens in the forthcoming U.P. Assembly Elections. will be extremely important for the whole of India. Some Opinion Polls have predicted a BJP victory in the forthcoming U.P. elections. I do not agree.

Punjab Assembly Elections : त्रिशंकु विधानसभा के आसार

By Justice Katju

I was asked in some comments on my previous post about the U.P. Elections to write my opinion about the forthcoming Punjab Assembly elections. I had visited Punjab several times between December 2015 and February 2016, and at that time I heard from many persons there that AAP is doing remarkably well.

Pakistan has more fools than India

By Justice Katju

I spoke to a Pakistani friend on skype recently. I told him that while 90% Indians are fools, 95% Pakistanis are fools. The 5% extra marks I gave to Pakistanis is because Pakistan declared itself an Islamic state, while India declared itself a secular state. So there are more fools in Pakistan than in India.

जस्टिस काटजू का मोदी के नाम खुला खत- 500 और 1000 के नोट रद्द करने वाले पागलपन भरे आदेश को निरस्त करें

My appeal to the Central Govt. regarding demonetization of Rs. 500 and 1000 notes.

Dear Mr. Modi,

Please immediately revoke this harebrained, asinine, madcap and reckless order of yours.

जस्टिस काटजू को एक बिहारी का खुला पत्र

Mr Justice Katju

I am a lawyer hailing from Bihar and practicing in Delhi High Court, Supreme Court of India. I have been closely following your musings earlier in the courts now on social media. I am piqued to write this open letter in response to your offer to Pakistan to take Bihar alongwith Kashmir as a package deal. Sir, you have not only undermined the sovereignty of our nation but also committed the offense of Sedition attracting punishment. May I reproduce the Section of IPC dealing with Sedition for your ready reference :

A full blown guerilla war is developing in Kashmir

I think the people of India, the Govt. of India, and the Indian army must now be told the truth : a full blown guerilla war, still in its nascent stage , is fast developing in Kashmir, and we are being misled by our jingoistic media having anchors whom I call Don Quixote, Lord Haw Haw, and Dr. Goebbels. The truth is that most of the Kashmiri youth have been thoroughly alienated, and are intensely hostile to India.

सुप्रीम कोर्ट जजों के बौद्धिक स्तर पर जस्टिस मार्कंडेय काटजू का सवालिया निशान!

I think the time has come to tell Indians about the intellectual level and background of most Indian Supreme Court judges.  While some of them have high intellectual level and character, like Justice Chalameshwar and Justice Nariman, the vast majority of the present Supreme Court Judges are people of very low intellectual level.   I can say this because …

The true nature of Kejriwal

That buffoon Anna Hazare was used by that cunning,crafty & over ambitious ‘artful dodger ( see Dicken’s ‘ Oiver Twist ‘ ) Kejriwal to hoodwink the gullible people of Delhi. Now he is trying the same in Punjab and Goa. Kejriwal has no scientific ideas about how to solve the Indian people’s massive problems of poverty, unemployment, malnutrition, healthcare and good education. In his book ‘ Swaraj ‘ he writes that our problems can be solved by handing over power to village panchayats and mohalla panchayats. Anyone who has an idea of the realities of such panchayats knows that they are centres and hotbeds of casteism and corruption. So Kejriwal’s idea is reactionary and stupid.

मुख्य न्यायाधीश जस्टिस ठाकुर से जस्टिस काटजू ने पूछा- ‘यह किस किस्म की भाषा है?’

Justice Thakur, like Queen Gertrude in Shakespeare’s ‘ Hamlet ‘, ” doth protest too much “. He has complained of the large number of vacancies in the High Courts. Why does he not also talk of the huge corruption in the judiciary, and the inordinate time the judiciary takes in deciding cases ? Mr. Shanti Bhushan, the former Union Law Minister and a very senior lawyer of Supreme Court, filed an affidavit many years back in the Court stating that half of the previous 16 Chief Justices of India were definitely corrupt ( he named them ), and there was some doubt about 2 more.

The Prime Minister’s historic speech : Justice Katju

The Prime Minister’s reference to Balochistan and POK in his Independence Day Speech at Red Fort in Delhi has come not a moment too soon. In fact it should have come in some speech much earlier, and also by earlier Prime Ministers, and it should also have referred to the demand for independence by people of Sind and NWFP. The speech reminds me of Nehru’s speech ‘ A Tryst with Destiny ‘. Now we are going to have another tryst with our destiny.

An eye for an eye

by Justice Markandey Katju
former Judge
Supreme Court

The Prime Minister’s reference to Balochistan and POK in his Independence Day Speech has come not a moment too soon. In fact it should have come in some speech much earlier, and also by earlier Prime Ministers.. How long must we tolerate the Pakistani leaders castigating  and condemning us over Kashmir, and how long must we tolerate their incitement, encouragement and support of the Kashmiri agitations and militancy ? It is time now to pay them back in the same coin. Just as Pakistan is giving training, weapons and supplies to militants in Kashmir, we too must start organizing, training and supplying weapons etc to Sindhis, Balochis, and the NWFP people who have been suppressed by Punjabis in the Pakistan security services for long, and want independence. Pakistanis must be told frankly : if you want to support azadi, it cannot be limited to Kashmiris alone.

The Indian Revolution is coming

By Justice Katju

I had said in my earlier posts that our national aim must be to make India a modern, highly industrialized, prosperous country in which all our citizens, not just a small minority, are getting decent lives and enjoying a high standard of living ( see my two articles ‘ Our National Aim ‘ on my blog justicekatju.blogspot.in ). I also said that this is only possible by a revolution, not reforms. Our state institutions ( Parliament, the judiciary,… bureaucracy, etc ) have largely become hollow and empty shells, and the Constitution, which did serve a useful purpose for some time, has now exhausted itself ( see my article ‘ A French Revolution is coming in India’ on my blog ).. No amount of tinkering with the present system in India will do. The solution to our massive problems lie outside the system, not within it.

मोदी सरकार यानि एक पूरी तरह फेल सरकार : जस्टिस काटजू

After 2 years of BJP rule, the time has now come to make a truthful assessment about Mr. Modi and his government.. I accuse the present BJP Govt. of failure on every front, and of resorting to fraudulent manipulation of facts and figures and ‘jumlas’ to cover up its failures, and of stoking the communal fires in many places for its own nefarious ends, while the country is sliding rapidly downhill, like an aircraft which has spun out of control, and is heading nose downwards towards the earth for an inevitable fatal crash..

पत्रकारिता दिवस पर हिंदी की दुर्दशा के बारे में अंग्रेजी में विस्तार से समझा रहे हैं जस्टिस मार्कंडेय काटजू

Today is Hindi Patrikarita Diwas. In this connection I wish to say that the language of the common man in large parts of India is khariboli or Hindustani, not Hindi. Hindi is an artificially created language, created by some bigots. To illustrate the difference between Hindi and Hindustani ( or khariboli ), let me give an example. In Khariboli we say ‘ udhar dekhiye ‘. In Hindi we will say ‘ udhar avlokan keejiye ‘, or ‘udhar drishtipaat keejiye ‘.

Like a ponzi scheme, Kejriwal bubble will burst sooner or later

The Aam Admi Party (AAP) won a landslide victory in Delhi in 2015 because people were disgusted with the other parties and wanted a radical change. Its leader Arvind Kejriwal projected himself as an epitome of honesty, a modern Moses, a Superman who will lead Delhi into a land of milk and honey. But his popularity started to rapidly decline as people started seeing the reality. He has no solutions to the problems facing the people — massive poverty, unemployment, lack of healthcare and good education, etc.

The Truth about the Odd Even Scheme

By Justice Katju

AAP had won a landslide victory in the Delhi elections in Februaary, 2015, because people were disgusted with the other parties, and wanted a radical change. Kejriwal had projected himself as an epitome of honesty, a modern Moses, a Superman (as Modi had done earlier) who will lead Delhi into a land of milk and honey. Later, his popularity started to rapidly decline as people started seeing the reality. There is really nothing in the man, he has no solutions to the real problems facing the people— massive poverty, unemployment, malnourishment, lack of healthcare and good education, farmers suicides, etc.

भाजपा और कांग्रेस दोनों अपराधी पार्टियां : जस्टिस काटजू

Markandey Katju : Criminal Organizations… I regard the Congress and the BJP as criminal organizations. In 1984 that criminal gangster Indira Gandhi, who imposed a fake ‘ Emergency’ in 1975 in India in order to hold on to power after she had been declared guilty of corrupt election practices by the Allahabad High Court, an ‘ Emergency in which even the right to life was suspended, and lacs of Indians were falsely imprisoned, was assassinated.

भारत में क्रांति के लिए माहौल तैयार… वजह गिना रहे हैं जस्टिस काटजू

जस्टिस मार्कंडेय काटजू

मैं कह चुका हूं कि भारत एक तरह की फ्रेंच क्रांति की ओर बढ़ रहा है। कई इतिहासकार फ्रेंच नेशनल असेम्बली के टेनिस कोर्ट ओथ को (इस्टेट्स जनरल में तीसरा इस्टेट) जो 20 जून 1789 को लिया गया था, फ्रेंच क्रांति की शुरुआत मानते हैं। मेरा मानना है कि राजेन्द्र कुमार के दफ्तर पर छापा, जिसे दिल्ली के मुख्यमंत्री के दफ्तर पर छापा माना जा रहा है, और इसपर उनकी प्रतिक्रिया (प्रधानमंत्री मोदी को मनोरोगी कहना) भारतीय क्रांति का अग्रदूत है क्योंकि अब सरकारी संस्थाएं (दिल्ली सरकार और केंद्र सरकार) ने एक-दूसरे से लड़ना शुरू कर दिया है। किसी क्रांति के लिए सिर्फ लोगों का व्यथित होना पर्याप्त नहीं है। यह भी आवश्यक है कि शासक एक दूसरे से लड़ने लगें।

इन तथ्यों पर विचार करें…

आईपीएस संजीव भट्ट प्रकरण में जस्टिस मार्कंडेय काटजू ने सुप्रीम कोर्ट पर सवालिया निशान लगाते हुए हल्ला बोला

The decision of the Supreme Court in Sanjiv Bhatt’s case violates its own earlier verdicts

Markandey Katju : The Supreme Court has flouted its own earlier verdicts.. The decision of the Supreme Court in Sanjiv Bhatt’s case violates its own earlier verdicts. An upright police officer who bravely took on the crooked Establishment and exposed its misdeeds, has been castigated by the Court in sweeping language which seems calculated to please the ruling party. The Court observed that Sanjiv Bhatt had not come with clean hands, had not acted bona fide, and described him as ‘a tool in the hands of rival parties, activists and vested interests’.

आई-नेक्स्ट अखबार की मारी प्रतिमा भार्गव के लिए न्याय पाने का कोई न्यायसम्मत मार्ग नहीं सुझा पाए जस्टिस काटजू

: सॉरी जस्टिस! आपको सुनकर निराश हुआ : नई दिल्ली। दैनिक जागरण समूह के आई-नेक्स्ट अखबार की प्रताड़ना झेल रहीं आगरा की समाजसेविका श्रीमती प्रतिमा भार्गव के समर्थन में बुधवार को भड़ास4मीडिया की ओर से आयोजित कार्यक्रम में जस्टिस मार्कंटेय काटजू को सामने से सुनने का मौका लगा। इससे पहले उनकी शोहरत से दूर से वाकिफ था। उनको घंटों सुनना उनकी सोच और समझ की बनावट को समझने के लिए फायदेमंद रहा। इसके लिए भड़ास4मीडिया के ओजस्वी संचालक भाई यशवंत को आभार। मुझे यह समझने में मदद मिली कि किसी समाज और सभ्यता के स्थापित प्रतिमानों को छेड़ते जाओ, तो विवाद पैदा होगा। फिर इस तरह विवादास्पद रहकर दबंगता से जी लेना जस्टिस काटजू के अलावा किसी और के बस की बात नहीं है।

काटजू ने ऐलान किया- बिहार में होगी महागठबंधन की एकतरफा जीत

Sweep in favour of the Mahagathbandhan in Bihar

Markandey Katju : I predict not just a bare victory but a sweep in favour of the Lalu-Nitish alliance in the coming Bihar elections. This is based on simple mathematics. As I had said in an earlier post, voting in most states in India, including Bihar, is on the basis of caste and religion. The exception to this rule is when there is a wave.
