If the most esteemed institution of a country is not lucid, it speaks volume about the governance of the country.

It is an open secret that the judiciary system has been in shambles. It not only practises political and party affiliation, it also takes order from the very powerful.

Judges are supposed to be above politics, people of integrity and virtuous personality, yet they are playing cronyism at the lowest level.

The status of a nation is often judged by the limpidity and competence of the judges. Failing which, it can only imply the beginning of the era of decadence of the nation.
