Guwahati, December 15, 2018:

The CPI-M has urged Chief Justice of India (CJI) Ranjan Gogoi to remove Justice Sudip Ranjan Sen of Meghalaya High Court from judicial duties. The party alleged that Sen’s utterances on Monday made in a judgment were against the basic structure of the Constitution.

In an unusual judgement, Justice Sen observed that India should have long been declared a Hindu nation. He had urged Prime Minister Narendra Modi to enact laws to allow non-Muslims living in Pakistan, Bangladesh and Afghanistan, to come to India and be given Indian citizenship instantaneously.

The CPI-M said it would consult other political parties to move an impeachment motion seeking the removal of the judge. The party alleged that Sen behaved in a manner which reflected his political faith that was similar to the RSS ideology of Hindu Rashtra.

Meanwhile, Justice Sen has clarified that his order was misinterpreted. He said secularism is one of the basic structures of the Indian Constitution and it should not be divided based on religion, caste, creed, community or language.
