Ashamed to be born in India: Madras HC judge

Says he prefers 'some other country' without caste system

Ashamed to be born in India: Madras HC judge

Madras High Court judge Justice Karnan on Monday said that he was ashamed that he was born in a country where caste system still exists.

  He said: “It (caste discrimination) is there. I am ashamed to have been born in India. I would like to migrate to some other country where caste system is not there”. “I am totally innocent. I was a victim of caste discrimination since I raised questioned against certain judges,” he told reporters outside the court complex.

Alleging that the Supreme Court had transferred him without hearing his arguments, Justice Karnan said the order is against the Constitution. The judge said that he will order FIR against the SC judges. 

“Since I am a Dalit, the order has been issued against me,” he said. “Instead of addressing the issues, they (judges) have targeted me,” he added.

   To a question, he said in case a defamation case is filed against media personnel for reporting his outbursts, he would pass appropriate judicial order directing the courts against initiating proceedings against media.

In December last year, Justice Karanan levelled charges against the the Madras High Court, Chief Justice Sanjay Kaul, of harassment and belittlement and also threatened to file a case against him.
