Chief Justice of India (CJI) NV Ramana has been approached by Former judges of the Supreme Court and High Courts and senior lawyers in a hope that Supreme Court will rise to the occasion and not let the citizens and the Constitution down at this critical juncture, urging the court to take suo motu cognizance of the demolition of houses of protesters by the Uttar Pradesh State authorities and detention of many such protesters.The letter has been signed by 12 former judges and senior lawyers. The signatories to the letter are:

1. Justice B. Sudarshan Reddy (Former judge of Supreme Court);

2. Justice V. Gopala Gowda (Former judge of Supreme Court);

3. Justice A.K. Ganguly, (Former judge of Supreme Court);

4. Justice AP Shah (Former Chief Justice of Delhi High Court and former Chairperson of Law Commission of India);

10. Sriram Panchu (Senior Advocate, Madras High Court);

11. Prashant Bhushan (Advocate, Supreme Court);

12. Anand Grover (Senior Advocate, Supreme Court).

The letter emphasised how the Chief Minister’s words have empowered police to mercilessly and unlawfully torture demonstrators, and how remarks by specific BJP spokespersons about the Prophet Mohammed have sparked protests across the country, notably in Uttar Pradesh.It was further stated that such a ruthless crackdown by a ruling administration is an intolerable perversion of the rule of law and a violation of citizens’ rights, and that it makes a mockery of the Constitution and fundamental rights granted by the State.
