On the other side of the spectrum are people like lawyer Yasser Latif Hamdani, who believes that the greatest South Asian achievement over the last 500 years is the Indian Constitution of 1950. “This constitution — and the fierce independence of Indian judiciary — is largely responsible for making India a credible world economic power. Give it enough time and India will shake off the dust of lethargy and become a first rate world power but this will require patience and complete faith in the Indian Constitution and judicial process.”
[I]t is not well thought out, and by taking over the independence of courts and the investigating authorities, leaving no scheme of appeal, and the ambiguous treatment of the right to be heard, the bill is absolutely unconstitutional and should not be implemented at any cost—fast-unto-death or not. The possible implications of its enactment far outweigh the obviously good intentions that it was drafted with.
