Constitution of India forms the supreme rule of law. The power to protect the sanctity of it is imposed on the judiciary. That implies, while the judiciary has to ensure the rights and freedom of the citizens by administering justice, it also has to ensure that no external force is influencing its decisions and causing hindrance in such administration of justice. This is why the provisions of contempt of court act are significant. Herein, the case comment of Re: Prashant Bhusan and Anr, we will discuss the threat that independence of judiciary causes over the citizens' freedom to criticize and vice versa while analysing the affect of media trials and the ambiguity of the contempt laws.
