      For those who are bend upon wilfully violating the
      judgements of the highest court of the land, (whether
      it is SM Krishna, AK Antony or Mar Deevanyasose) the following
      strictures passed by the SC recently against the Govt.
      of Karnataka can be an eye opener.

      ====================================
      A Bench, comprising Chief Justice B N Kirpal, Justice
      Y K Sabharwal and Justice Arijit Pasayat, drew a
      parallel between the demolition of the mosque in
      Ayodhya despite the court's directive to protect it
      and the recent violation of the directives to release
      water to parched TN.

      "If the state governments played to the emotions of
      the people and violated court orders, then God help
      this country," an anguished Bench said.
      "There are lots of cases where emotions can be
      aroused, but it will be unfortunate if the states come
      and say that they cannot implement the court orders
      because of emotions," the court said.

      As Karnataka's counsel Anil B Divan said the state had
      released as much water as it could but the suicide by
      a farmer and riots prevented it from implementing the
      apex court's order, the Bench remarked:

      "If an elected government says because of a law and
      order problem, it cannot comply with the SC's order,
      let it go. You (Karnataka) have come to that."
      The judges further said: "These man-made situations to
      flaunt the court order should stop. You get political
      mileage out of it."

      "What happened to Article 144?" the court asked Divan.
      Article 144 says that all authorities, civil and
      judicial shall act in aid of the Supreme Court.

      "We dare say that the Union government has not covered
      itself with glory. It was their duty as well to see
      the orders were complied with. They had sufficient
      powers to do so. No one has covered itself with
      glory," it said.
      "You (Karnataka) have no regard for SC orders. We are
      of the view that there is a wilful non-compliance of
      the order and it is deliberate," the court said.

      Rejecting his argument, the Bench said: "The plea of
      bandhs and agitations have unfortunately been raised
      by other CMs as well. We cannot accept it. It has to
      be deprecated in the strongest terms."

        "Zeal is not reckoned among men to be a form of wisdom, but one of the illnesses of the soul, namely narrow-mindedness and deep ignorance. The beginning of divine wisdom is clemency and gentleness, which arise from greatness of soul and the bearing of infirmities of men. For, he [the Apostle Paul] says, "let the strong bear the infirmities of the weak', and 'Restore him that has fallen in the spirit of meekness.' The Apostle numbers peace and patience among the fruits of the Spirit."
