Be a citizen, not a super citizen. Eminent Constitutional jurist Fali S Nariman advised Justice(retd) Markandey Katju while arguing against his petition seeking quashing of resolution passed by Rajya Sabha and Lok Sabha, condemning him for his remarks against Mahatma Gandhi and Netaji Subhash Chandra Bose.
Nariman, who is also amicus for the Parliament submitted to the bench of Chief Justice of India and Justices R Banumathi and UU Lalit that the House never intended to call upon or censor. “The main reason behind objecting to the blog was that it was written by a former Supreme Court judge. Had the opinions been penned by a common man, the Parliament would have not bothered,” argued Nariman.
The matter was adjourned to Thursday since the Attorney General was not present.
