Marakandey Katju, the former Supreme Court judge and ex-chairman of Press Council of India, who is celebrating his 73rd birthday on Sunday is a fascinating figure. The retired judge is currently the head of the IRA, which despite sounding like the terror organisation Irish Republic Army actually stands for Indian Reunification Association.
He is also quite active on social media where he is known for sending inappropriate messages from time to time, asking everyone to read his blog and threatening people with his ‘impatient danda’.
A liberal gadfly who likes irking people, Justice Katju goes out of his way to vex people.

Nehru deserves praise for supporting secularism& modernising India, but he can never be forgiven for agreeing to Partition, which was the greatest crime against India in its 5000 yr known history and caused enormous suffering. He agreed only to retain his PM chair— Markandey Katju (@mkatju) November 14, 2018
1 of dozens of YouTube videos of @RanaAyyub. This âchampionâ of secularism denounces Hindu fundamentalism but never denounces sharia,burqa,madarsas&maulanas which keep Muslims backward&were abolished by Mustafa Kemal.Secularismhas2be a2way traffic,not1wayhttps://t.co/Kk9QHe4y1m— Markandey Katju (@mkatju) August 8, 2020
Indian Constitution professes to be secular. But secularism is feature of industrial society. India is still semi-feudal as evident from rampant casteism&communalism still prevalent & rise of BJP to power. So our secularism is a fig leaf&only on paper.— Markandey Katju (@mkatju) November 11, 2018
When I condemnHindu fundamentalism Muslims praise me,but when I condemnMuslim fundamentalism&feudal practices like burqa,sharia,madarsas&maulanas mostMuslims call me communal.This wonât do.Secularism has2be a2way traffic,not 1way.Muslimsshud follow path of Mustafa Kemal&modernise— Markandey Katju (@mkatju) August 8, 2020

This fool does not know that India greatly prospered during Mughal rule, with a massive handicraft industry&about 30% of the worldâs trade ( which dropped to 2% under British rule ). See my article âDinner at the German Embassyâ on my blog Satyam Bruyat— Markandey Katju (@mkatju) February 7, 2020
