Judicial independence is the bulwark of the system. It gives life to the words in the constitution.Douglas Abrams
The Judiciary is considered as one of the pillars which upholds democratic systems in a country. It is the ultimate check on absolute executive power and is the guardian of constitutional values. Without the judiciary, there will be no one left to truly protect the interests of the people of a country.
“Some people’s idea of free speech is that they are free to say what they like, but if anyone says anything back, that is an outrage.”Winston Churchill
Countless times, I have written about freedom of speech on this website. Every single time I have said that freedom of speech is a pillar of the democratic world we live in. For centuries, people fought against oppressors to attain the right to speak their minds. All of the revolutions or movements which have taken place in history, whether it be the English Revolution, the French Revolution or the Indian independence movement; all of them shared the same objective: to get freedom.
