EDITORIAL

Dear readers,

Justice is always a sensitive nerve. The impression that justice is not being done or is being inadequately delivered must not be allowed to reach the people unless it happens to be doubtlessly true. And the media is dutybound to serve unadulterated truth to the people. When it comes to legal issues, court cases, sub judice matters and the judgments of the courts, the responsibility is heightened because the public perception of a 'just society' is deeply influenced by how they think they are treated by the law and the courts.

Inaccurate reports of the courtroom occurrences can deeply damage the faith of the people in the justice delivery mechanism, which can be disastrous in the long and short run both. All that the Supreme Court of India seems to intend is make the press reports 'dependable', which currently they are not. And in that sense the Apex Court is actually serving the cause of responsible journalism.

It must not be lost sight of that the Supreme Court has been the most ferocious defender of the Free Speech and Free Press. But greater the freedom, the greater the responsibility. It's time to shoulder the responsibility. And the Apex Court is not wrong in suggesting that.

(Manish Arora)
