Ayodhya case update: CJI replaces Justice Kumar with Justice Alam

September 29, 2010 Showing how sensitive the Ayodhya case is proving to be, the Chief Justice of India (CJI), Justice S.H. Kapadia is leaving no stone unturned to convince the country of the apex court’s secular and fair credentials.

The CJI has gone ahead and replaced Justice Swatanter Kumar with Justice Aftab Alam. CJI appears to have put into practice the oft-recited adage - "Justice should not only be done, but also appear to be done”. The move is to maintain the Hindu-Muslim equation before the next date of hearing.
