Pearls of wisdom from Justice Katju

Biology claims that about 60% of human brain consists of fat, Geography claims that about 70% of the earth is covered with water, WHO claims that 80% of the current polio cases are associated with Pakistan, but importantly, statistical claims leapt to another level when honourable Justice Markandey Katju, in 2012, claimed that “90 per cent of Indians are idiots” and “80 per cent Hindus and 80 per cent Muslims are communal”.

By the time, humans could have collected data to verify his claims about 90 per cent of the Indians, the former Chairman of Press Council of India and erstwhile Judge at the Supreme Court of India bombarded the universe with a series of jaw-dropping arguments. In one of his latest Facebook posts, written on 13 January 2015, Markandey Katju recommends Indians to elect beautiful women for all positions.

Grabar-Kitarovic, Katju
Kolinda Grabar-Kitarović, who will become the President of Croatia in February 2015.

After quoting an example of the Croatian President, he expresses his concerns about the reality of promises made by politicians and then posts a link which directs to this photo (on the right) of the Croatian President.

The next section of this Facebook post ends with his usual last words, “Hari Om!”, but Justice Katju further spread his wings of wisdom, and in his blog, he suggests Katrina Kaif to be made the next President of India, with the condition that she sings ‘ Sheela ki Jawaani’ on her Inaugural.

If you are not convinced by his pictorial arguments just because you are troubled by his claims that 90% of Indians are idiots, you must calm your nerves. Not all idiots are bad people. Even though our dignified Justice Markandey Katju believes that 90% of Indians are idiots, he also stated that 99% of people are good. In a Facebook post written on 8 Jan 2015, Katju went beyond boundaries and quantified that 99% Pakistanis are good people, and so are 99% Indians and 99% Bangladeshis, Nepalese, Sri Lankans, Burmese, Americans, Europeans, Chinese, Arabs, Africans, etc.

On 25 December 2014, when Indians were joking and outraging on “Ghar Wapasi” and “Religion Conversion”, Justice  Katju left millions dumbstruck by a single post which insinuates sexism, misogyny, patriarchy, orthodoxy and dogmatism. In his Facebook post titled Gay Relationships and Gay Marriages, Justice Katju throws cosmic enlightenment on gay marriages, responsibilities of women, relationships, George Bernard Shaw, and suggests that ‘gay marriages serve no social purpose‘.


Apart from discussing the purposefulness of gay marriages to serve nature’s requirement for continuing human species, he infuriates women by saying, “To fulfill this role of nature, a woman has to get hold of a man, not merely to make her pregnant, but also to look after her and provide for her financially while she is performing this role.”

He further fuels the anger by adding, “it is not men who pursue women, but women who pursue men. It is the Life Force which drives women to pursue and catch a mate, who will then look after her while she is performing nature’s serious and vital function of continuing the species”.

Long before delving into politics, culture and morality, Justice Katju also displayed his poetry lover avatar. In a series of tweets to Rajdeep Sardesai, Sagarika Ghose and Barkha Dutt, he appeals journos to tweet Urdu Shayari. Before deleting these tweets, he expressed his grief about lack of poetry sense in people:

One can’t ignore his role in legalizing passive euthanasia, a death sentence for fake encounters, justice in the case of land-grabbing of village community land and many other landmark judgments, but then we can also not neglect his cosmic enlightening Gyan.

Hari Om!
