  3. The fear of executive courts page 8 GS2 judiciary organisation, funtion and structure Judge of Meghalaya HC passed some politically enthused remarks - India should have been a hindu nation, fear of Islamic Nation, Modi should strive for a Hindu state. The author criticised this as against judicial independence. Judicial independence not only means independence from executive, but also a judge's judgement should not fall refuge to his/her political view. It also requires that judges perform their constitutional role independent of personal biases, political and moral beliefs, and partisan ideologies .Due to weak Judicial accountabiity( judges accountable mostly to self) risk of such misadventures rose Accountability only to oneself, however, is a very weak form of constraint. The temptation to overstep is always immense, more so when such immense power has been placed in one's own hands. It is here that legal culture plays a critical role in establishing judicial accountability. By legal culture, I refer to a set of unwritten, but clearly established, norms that determine what is or is not acceptable in the process of adjudication. And a legal culture does not spring up out of a vacuum: it must be created and nurtured by judges, lawyers, legal academics, the press and the citizenry Judgments like the national anthem order, the Tirukkural order, the NRC process, and Justice Sen's recent foray raise an altogether more frightening prospect: that of an

For over a century, stealing attracted the death penalty in England, where spectators at public hangings often had their pockets picked Error ridden-SC admitted that it erred in 25% death penalty cases between 200- 2015 . *It targets the poor and marginalised-those with legal aid gets most of the death penalty Difficult to administer it rationally- SC itself admitted that it depends on personal biases and views of the Judge.Some judge administer it more than others Should the killing of a human being depend on the philosophy of a particular individual Punishment should not imitate crime. We do not rape rapists . Taking away a life itself violates UNDHR No evidence to show that Death penalty acted as successful deterrence. Difficulty in Extraditions. NO he sacredness of life can only be seen to be protected if those who take it away are proportionately punished


  6. Even US, which is seen as a liberal country has not abolished it Bachan Singh case- rarestof rare doctrine Law commission also upholded it in 262nd report Gandhi statue removed in Ghana page 12 GS1, GS4 .Some passage by gandhiji has been quoted as racist where it is claimed that he looked down upon Black africans. Such incidents and such quotes of Gandhi raises question in an intellectual mind that was Gandhiji truly a Good human?? This is where mortality comes in..Everyone is a human. Just like human evolve, a person's views also evolve. A murderer might become a saint later in his/her life.
