Politics has started regarding the transfer of Delhi High Court Judge S. Muralidhar. Reacting to the transfer of Delhi High Court Judge S. Muralidhar to the Punjab and Haryana High Court, Congress General Secretary Priyanka Gandhi Vadra on Thursday said that it is sad and shameful that the Centre is attempting to muzzle justice.

Congress general secretary Priyanka Gandhi Vadra tweeted, “The midnight transfer of Justice Muralidhar isn’t shocking given the current dispensation, but it is certianly sad & shameful. Millions of Indians have faith in a resilient & upright judiciary, the government’s attempts to muzzle justice & break their faith are deplorable.”

In a press briefing held on February 27, Congress spokesperson Randeep Surjewala said the urgency of the transfer had “exposed the BJP’s politics of revenge.” Surjewala Twitted, “Instant justice! As Bench headed by J. S. Murlidhar holds the BJP leaders & Govt accountable for the #Delhi violence, he is overnight transferred from Delhi High Court.Wish the rioters had been dealt with the same speed & alacrity!”

Justice S. Muralidhar transferred just hours after his remarks about registering an FIR against BJP leaders for hate speech and not allowing Delhi to be pushed back into a situation like the 1984 riots. Muralidhar, who heard the petitions on Delhi violence on Wednesday and slammed Delhi Police over continuous violence over 3 days, has been transferred to the Punjab and Haryana High Court. President Kovind has ordered the transfer following the recommendation by SC.
