Recapitulate. What happened on 4th-5th June, 2011 at Ramlila Ground? RAVAN LILA by Anti Hindu CONGRESS and UPA Govt.
Half hearted Indian judiciary is not doing justice to the Hindus under pressure.
Ramlila incident: SC slams Police, Ramdev in a row.
Ramlila Ground crackdown: Jethmalani slams P Chidambaram.
New Delhi: HE News Desk: 23-02-2012:: If the justice delayed, everybody say Justice is denied. But when the justice is delivered in an ambit of satisfying both the oppressors and the sufferers, it is nothing but a rape of jurisprudence. The Supreme Court on Thursday castigated the Delhi Police and yoga guru Ramdev for the midnight violent incident at the Ramlila Maidan last year and said it was a “glaring example of trust deficit” between the people and the government.
A bench of justices B S Chauhan and Swatanter Kumar said that incident showed might of the state which struck at the foundation of democracy.
The bench further observed that the police and the state could have avoided that tragic incident in which one person died and several others were injured.
In this connection, senior lawyer Ram Jethmalani attacked Home Minister P Chidambaram on Thursday holding him responsible for the police attack on Baba Ramdev on June 4 last year.
Jethmalani, Ramdev’s lawyer in the case held a joint press conference with Baba Ramdev on Thursday after the SC verdict where both Ramdev and Delhi police were held responsible for the Ramlila Grounds crackdown. The senior Supreme Court lawyer questioned why the home minister was not held responsible for the crackdown.
The lawyer for Bharat Swabhimaan Trust further said we did not approach the SC but had presented our case in front of the public. However, he added that he considered the SC verdict as a victory for Baba Ramdev.
Jethmalani said the home minister has no right to decide who qualifies to stage protest and who does not.
Ramdev said he had urged his followers to refrain from any form of violence after the SC held him responsible for the crackdown. The yog guru, too, blamed Chidambaram for the June crackdown in Delhi.
SC verdict on Ramlila crackdown
The Supreme Court has slammed Delhi Police and Ramdev on the midnight crackdown on Ramdev’s followers at Ramlila Maidan on June 4-5 2011 during his anti-corruption agitation.
Taking suo motu cognisance of media reports, purportedly showing brutality of police action against Ramdev’s sleeping followers, including women and children, the Apex Court said it was a “glaring example of trust deficit” between the people and the government.
According to reports, the SC also pulled up Ramdev for his negligence. The court said that Ramdev was wrong in defying orders. “Ramdev should have left venue when it was asked to do so by Delhi Police,” SC said.
The SC also announced joint compensation of Rs 5 lakhs to Rajbala family, Rs 50 thousand to injured and Rs 25 thousand to people getting simple injuries, to be given by Ramdev and Delhi Police. Ramdev’s trust will have to pay 25 per cent of the compensation amount to Rajbala’s family.
It is obvious that the Delhi Police and Central Govt. led by Congress hatched the conspiracy and attack on peaceful Ramdev Supporters. Then WHY BABA RAMDEV have to pay the compensation to the deceased and injured under a justice obviously bad in law?
