Bollywood Music Composer Vishal Dadlani, who is known for making controversial statements on social media, landed in the soup for taking a jibe at Chief Justice of India, Ranjan Gogoi, after the latter's retirement from office.
Sharing an article by journalist Gautam Bhatia, Dadlani captioned the post, "Goodbye, ex-CJI Gogoi, and I hope you can stomach the disgraceful and cowardly legacy you have left this august Office".
Soon after, Vishal Dadlani was criticized on Twitter by netizens. One user wrote, "Ohh yes, the legacy that involves solving one of the most complex and long outstanding issues we had !!", while another said, "Shame on you for being such a cry baby.. If you cannot respect our judicial system then at least don't try to make a fool of yourselves by calling names for people who occupy the august office as you rightly said .."
Ranjan Gogoi, who was sworn in as the CJI on October 3, 2018, retired on Sunday. He will perhaps be best remembered for giving landmark judgements in some of the most iconic cases in Indian history like the Ayodhya Land Dispute case, Sabrimala Temple and Rafale Deal.
