‘Y’-category security to HC Judges who delivered Hijab verdict

Editorial Comment

When people do not get ‘justice’ according to their wishes, they take to various means to express their opposition. But, this is obnoxious ! Religious fanatics are hell bent on destroying this Institution too ! So-called secularists are as usual mum on the death threats to the Judges !

Following death threats to the three Karnataka High Court Judges, including the Chief Justice, who delivered the Hijab verdict, and arrest of a person in Tamil Nadu in this regard, Karnataka Chief Minister Basavaraj Bommai on 20th March said his Government has decided to provide ‘Y category’ security to them.

Stating that his Government has taken the matter seriously, he has ordered the Director General of Police to look into the case and take the person arrested in Tamil Nadu into custody for investigation.

Speaking to reporters in Bengaluru, Bommai said everyone should obey the verdict of the judiciary and there is every opportunity in the system for appeal. Yet, some forces are trying to incite people against the system, which will not be tolerated and will be suppressed.

Further, questioning the silence of ‘pseudo-seculars’ on the matter, Bommai said, “Death threat is being given to Judges against the orders passed by them. Also, hints have been given about the possible threats, like an accident and other things.

“You guys (pseudo secularists) raise your voice on other issues. Appeasing a section of society is not secularism, it is real communalism. I condemn it. Break your silence. We should all be together on this issue. It is because of the judiciary that the law and order is maintained to a large extent today. If it is being challenged, it is a threat to our Democracy”, he said, adding that the Government will take strict action.

According to official sources, Tamil Nadu Police have arrested an office-bearer of an organisation called Tamil Nadu Thowheed Jamaat in Madurai for allegedly issuing death threats to Judges.

The person identified as Rahamathulla, in a veiled threat, has referred to a District Judge in Jharkhand being mowed down by a vehicle during his morning walk last year, they said.

A 3-Judge Bench consisting of Chief Justice Ritu Raj Awasthi, Justice Krishna S Dixit and Justice JM Khazi had on 15th March dismissed petitions filed by a section of Muslim girl students, seeking permission to wear Hijab inside the classroom.
