    Is the verdict in MV Jayarajan case sensible ?

    The CPI(M) leader M V Jayarajan has been sentenced to an imprisonment of 6 months and slapped with a fine of Rs. 2000 by the Kerala High Court in the contempt of court case. It is the maximum range of punishment that can be given in a contempt of court case. The issue has been boilling ever since he made the controversial remarks against the judges in last year. His 'shumban' usage against judges had produced heated debates. Today, the court pronounced its verdict and directly sent him to the jail. He was denied the time to go for an appeal in the Supreme Court against the verdict. Do you think the court's verdict is right ? Does Jayarajan deserve it ? Was the court more emotional than sensible ?

    Insulting judiciary should not be a promotive attitude. So I think a punishment or warning is necessary to M. V. Jayaragan.
    The High court punished him for 6 months imprisonment with a fine of Rs. 2000, and the court instructed to imprison Mr. Jayaraj on today itself. A division bench of justices V. Ram Kumar and P. Q. Barkat Ali passed the judgement. Pinarai Vijayan already commended that the court's instruction for imprison Mr. Jayarajan today itself is not a right decision.
    Anyways everyone be careful while making any remarks against Judiciary.

    I think this is right punishment to MV Jayarajan in court case. Because judiciary is apex level our country not under polictics. So we must provide much respect to judiciary.
    With regards

    The punishment is right. Since it happened to judiciary it was possible. Others will have to swallow whatever insults are showered upon. To go to court will be time consuming & expensive.

    But the court denied Jayarajan the time to go for an appeal in the Supreme Court. Many personalities including leading advocates pointed out that as an unacceptable decision from the court's side.

    Yes, that decision of High Court is a little unacceptable. Though he is an Indian citizen, he has the write to go for appeal. Maybe the judiciary have their own reasons to commend like that.

    The decision of Hon'ble High Court sending Jayarajan to jail immediately without giving time to file an appeal petition in the Higher Court was not right. This has been criticised by the Hon'ble Supreme court, in its pronouncements allowing bail to Jayarajan. So Courts also have to be little more humane in judgement.
