Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Saturday stated that around 1.3 billion Indians have accepted the recent judicial verdicts wholeheartedly. During the International Judicial Conference in Delhi, PM Modi said that “Respected Mahatma Gandhi Ji’s life was devoted to the truth and service, which were considered the foundation of any judiciary. He himself was a barrister. He has written in great detail in his autobiography about the first case that he fought.”
Adding, PM Modi said, “Recently, there had been some important judicial judgements which were subject to global discussions. Before these judgements, several concerns were being expressed about the consequences, but 1.3 billion Indians accepted these judicial verdicts wholeheartedly.”
Meanwhile, Chief Justice of India Sharad Arvind Bobde said that “India is a melting pot of various cultures and traditions, this is equally true of its judicial system and institutions. We have assimilated the legal cultures of all the civilisations who have come to our shores.
Likewise, Union Law Minister Ravi Shankar Prasad said that “This is a time for global challenges. How do we seek resolution? It remains an important question. I am very clear that the only answer is to fall back on the conventional regulatory mechanism of being governed by the rule of law.”
Also, the Supreme Court Justice Arun Mishra stated that “India is a responsible and most friendly member of international community under stewardship of internationally acclaimed, visionary PM Narendra Modi. “To strengthen the judicial system is a call of the day as it is the backbone of our democracy, whereas legislature is the heart and the executive is the brain,” he added.
