Independence Of Judiciary

Bhumi Reddy Sai Srinivas Reddy, Alliance University, Bangalore.

“The bedrock of our democracy is the rule of law and that means we have to have an independent judiciary, judges who can make decisions independent of the political winds that are blowing.”

-Caroline Kennedy

One cannot bind himself to the donkey he's riding, an executive action can only be judged by an impartial judge isn't bind to the body it's called upon to judge. The forefathers of our great nation gifted us with a democracy which by its very definition assumes a judiciary and an independent one too. Democracy isn't functional if there's not an impartial body to review the state’s action as the state can’t be the judge in its own cause.

It is very interesting to note that though our founding fathers borrowed heavily from the parliamentary kind of government within the United Kingdom, they very consciously overlooked the judicial structure prevalent within the United Kingdom then. Until 2009, the House of Lords was the absolute best appellate body, not a supreme court.
