ICJ Snubs Pakistan And Stays Kulbhushan Jadhav’s Execution

Coming straight to the core issue, let me begin first and foremost by pointing out that in a major boost to India and a huge relief to the family of Kulbhushan Jadhav who had been waiting very anxiously all along for the judgment to come, the International Court of Justice (ICJ) on May 18, 2017 very rightly stayed the execution of former Indian Navy officer Jadhav who had been sentenced to death by a Pakistan military court on charges of espionage and  subversive activities. Pakistan had no strong evidence to prove that Kulbhushan Jadhav was a terrorist. Its specious arguments were thrown aside by the ICJ and India’s convincing arguments presently flawlessly and most elegantly by one of the best and most learned lawyers of India – Harish Salve won the day for India!                                         Let me also pen down that no law on earth can justify Kulbhushan Jadhav’s hanging on “whimsical, arbitrary and illogical” grounds. Pakistan is just using a retired naval officer who w…

Lawyers of West UP Are Very Happy With Rajnath’s Assurances

To start with, it gives me immense pleasure and satisfaction to inform all my esteemed readers that after 70 years of relentless struggle by lawyers of West UP for a high court bench it seems that finally their tireless efforts are beginning to pay off! None other than the Union Home Minister of India Rajanth Singh who earlier also in his capacity as UP CM had supported the creation of a bench in West UP has categorically assured the lawyers of West UP that they would hear good news about creation of a high court bench in West UP very soon!                                                   This assurance came when a delegation of senior lawyers of West UP comprising of Gajender Pal Singh who was the then President of Meerut Bar, Ajay Sharma who was the then General Secretary of Meerut Bar, Rohitashwa Kumar Aggarwal who has just won the elections for post of President of Meerut Bar for 5th time and who is also former Chairman of UP Bar Council and also presently member of UP Bar Council…

UP Must Have At Least 10 High Court Benches

Let me begin on a very bitter note by pointing out that crime against women are multiplying most rapidly in UP and this is most felt in West UP which is the worst affected of all the regions of UP. Throwing of acid on woman or rape, gang rape, molestation and all other forms of crimes against women and girls are openly being perpetrated in West UP especially as also in UP which is certainly most concerning!                                    Why talk about women alone? Even men are not safe here! Policemen themselves are not safe here! Criminals are killing whomever they want with impunity and then we see how they easily manage to get bail and the criminal cases keep pending interminably!  This must stop forthwith if a semblance of law and order is to be restored in UP! But how? By ensuring that cases against criminals are decided at the earliest.                                       How can this be ensured that cases are decided at the earliest against criminals? By setting up at leas…

President From West UP Still No High Court Bench Here

Coming straight to the centre-stage, let me begin by voicing my utmost happiness to learn that for the first time in the history of independent India a President has been elected from not just UP but also West UP which is among the most neglected regions even though it contributes maximum by way of revenue and earnings. Ram Nath Kovind who was the NDA’s candidate and former Bihar Governor will become India’s 14th President and first RSS member to become Indian President. His being elected as President is the biggest slap on those who foolishly term RSS as a “terror organization”. Will our President join a terror organization?                                               Kovindji was elected India’s 14th President on July 20 winning two-thirds (65.65 percent) of the total votes polled in the fight against the Opposition candidate Meira Kumar. He will take oath on July 25. He will be the second Dalit President after late President KR Narayanan but more significantly the first from not j…
