There are basically four parts of the system working as per the Constitution of India. Amongst them, first is the Legislative who makes the law for the benefit of the greater part of the society second is the executive, which makes sure that whatever law is passed by the Legislature in the Parliament is being executed third being the judiciary the most important where according to the law if a person’s rights have been infringed he or she knocks at the door of the judiciary for providing justice to the person’s in order for them to live their lives in peace. Judiciary in recent times, in contrast to the earlier times, have been infested with various attacks in the hands of the people. The most important part being is providing justice for the benefit of the people, which definitely hurts the sentiments of the other group in the eyes of whom the justice to them has not been given. Though in the past, there have been no such attacks in recent times, there has been an increase in attacks which leads us to think that the sanctity of the judgment is being questioned. On the occasion of Constitution Day, Chief Justice of India N V Ramana expressed concern over the “increasing” attacks “on the judiciary in the media, particularly social media”. He said these attacks appeared to be “sponsored, synchronised… motivated and targeted”, and central agencies should “effectively” deal with them. He also expressed that “An area of grave concern for the judiciary is the increasing attacks on judges. Physical attacks on judicial officers are on the rise. Then there are attacks on the judiciary in the media, particularly social media. These attacks appear to be sponsored and synchronised. The law enforcement agencies, particularly the central agencies, need to deal with such malicious attacks effectively.
