Here below is his opinion over Yakub Memon's hanging. Markandey Katju shared his opinion over his official account of Facebook, below is the post he posted today 26th July 2015. "My opinion :Yakub Memon has been convicted on very weak evidence. Begunahon ka lahu piyo, izn-e-aam hai I believe there has been gross travesty of justice in the case of Yakub Memon. I have carefully studied the judgment of the Court. The evidence on which he has been found guilty is very weak. This evidence is (1) retracted confession of the co-accused, and (2) alleged recoveries. As regards the first, everyone knows how 'confessions' are obtained by the police in our country--by torture. And torture is such a terrible thing that one will confess to anything under torture. Joan of Arc confessed to be a witch under t

Here is what Markandey Katju had to say on his symbolic 'Roza' and 'Vrat' initiative. Why do I keep one-day Roza? 4.7.2015, Fremont, California It is 3.40 a.m. and I am about to do my Sehri ( breakfast during Ramzan ).
