Judge alleges "caste discrimination" - my question to judge...


Ref:The Hindu/NEW DELHI, November 3, 2011, News Item: 

Judge alleges “caste discrimination”

My Question to Justice C.S. Karnan
Whether the complaint of Justice C.S.Karnan of "caste discrimination" by his brother judges is true or false one is a debatable question. However, whatever it might be, would definitely disqualify one or the other Person from holding the constitutional office such as the office of the High Court Judge. Therefore, He should reveal the identity of the so called wrong-doing Judges to the public immediately so that the citizens of India may be vigilant of getting their matters relating to caste claim or similar matters posted before the Bench of other Judges of the same High Court to secure  unbiased orders. Otherwise, Lawyers and litigants who have already lost their faith and confidence to some extent in the Indian Judiciary which is working under a diluted justice delivery system, would have least regards therefor, thanks to the dirty politics within the Judiciary.
Will Justice C.S.Karnan disclose the names of the so called wrong-doing judges of the Madras High Court ?. (OR)
Will the Chief Justice direct him to do the same in the interests of Justice?

Justice Karnan should disclose publicaly the name of such black sheep.


Assuming that there is a genuine case out here a Judge should first exhaust inhouse remedies before going public. Such things are neither allowed nor are they legal and go against the code of conduct of such judges. Just wondering who made him a judge? Maybe he was a politician earlier.


This judge would be better off with Mayawati.

The context is not clear.  I am unable to agree or disagree with experts above.


It appears that as an employee one judge is aggrieved against behaviour of another judge

 Is this the case?
