PARYAGRAJ – The Allahabad High Court recently became embroiled in a heated debate stemming from remarks made by Judge Jitendra Tyagi during a hearing related to the film “Ram Ki Janmabhoomi.”

The contentious comments, touching upon sensitive religious sentiments, ignited a firestorm of criticism and raised questions about judicial impartiality and cultural sensitivity in the country.

The controversy unfolded during a hearing on the film’s portrayal of historical events surrounding the construction of the Ram temple in Ayodhya. Judge Tyagi’s remarks, while addressing the representation of Sunni Muslims in the film, sparked immediate backlash from several quarters. Critics argue that the judge’s comments not only strayed beyond the purview of the case but also risked inflaming communal tensions in an already polarised society.

In his remarks, Judge Tyagi allegedly questioned the portrayal of Sunni Muslims in the film, suggesting that it could potentially stoke communal discord. While the judge’s intentions remain subject to interpretation, his comments have been widely condemned as insensitive and prejudicial. Legal experts assert that judges must exercise caution when addressing matters of religious or communal significance, emphasising the importance of upholding the principles of secularism and impartiality.

The controversy surrounding Judge Tyagi’s remarks underscores broader concerns regarding judicial activism and the judiciary’s role in shaping societal narratives. Critics argue that judges should refrain from making statements that could be perceived as biased or inflammatory, especially in cases involving religious sensitivities. The incident has reignited discussions about the need for judicial restraint and preservation of judicial independence.

In response to the outcry, the Allahabad High Court issued a statement reaffirming its commitment to upholding the principles of justice and impartiality. The court emphasised that Judge Tyagi’s comments were made in a personal capacity and did not reflect the official stance of the judiciary. However, the statement stopped short of addressing the concerns raised regarding judicial conduct and accountability.
