Chairman of the Press council of India Markandey Katju has called for an amendment to India’s Contempt of Courts Act, 1971.

“There is an urgent need to amend the law because the judiciary should not be above suspicion”. Katju says, “In the olden days, the King was the master and the people were the subjects. Since judges used to be delegates of the King, they had authority and dignity. But in a democracy, this relationship has been reversed. It’s the people who are the masters now and the state authorities, including judges are their servants.”

Katju is a retired Supreme Court judge. He says that times have changed and today every state functionary should be questioned.

    I disagree. There are two kinds of contempt under the Act. Civil contempt and Criminal Contempt. Civil Contempt is an act of violation of the Order of the Court or disregard such orders. Whereas criminal contempt is to scandalise the court. In a democracy every one has the right and opportunity to go to court for any -any grievance even against the Honourable Appex Court – even against Full Bench of the Supreme Court. I think the Act should remain in force with all its sections. We now find that the other two of the three pillars of the Government viz Parliament and executive fail to protect the Constitutional rights of the citizen. The Judiciary is their last resort. I do not know what specific amendment is intended by Hon”ble Justice Kartzu , Being a commoner I do not find any reason to amend the Act. It is necessary to explain more vividly why and what amendmets should be made. The honour of the Court should never be allowed to ruin.
