Need Journalists More Than Ever To Document The Unseen and Expose Fault Lines In Society: Justice Chandrachud

Judge D. Y. Chandrachud said, “In the age of fake news and disinformation, we need journalists more than ever to see the unseen things in documents and expose the shortcomings of our society.” 

The Supreme Court judge delivered his speech at the 11th Convocation and Founder’s Day Ceremony held at the O.P. Jindal Global University.

Justice D.Y. Chandrachud said that  India has made progress in all areas to achieve its constitutional ideals and values. Still, Independence Day should not be just a ceremonial celebration of our celebration of freedom. Instead, it should be a place for critical self-examination of our progress and realisation of the values ​​that both female and male constituents sought to achieve.

But many communities in India, due to their hierarchical social and economic structure are waiting to test the fruits of our democratic heritage. Many of our citizens are deprived of equal rights in social and economic spheres.

Doctor B.R. Ambedkar warned that political democratic structures are unstable until they are underpinned by social democracy. He defined social democracy as a way of life that recognizes liberty, equality, and fraternity as principles of life.

But promoting social democracy and social justice is not just the job of governments and the judiciary. The state branch to which D.Y. Chandrachud belongs, the Judiciary, plays an important role in promoting social democratic values. But the search for constitutional culture is not limited to courts and legal surpluses. It exists in all of us.

Social justice ensures that all people in our society have equal social and economic opportunities regardless of religion, race, caste, sex, gender, place of birth, or sexual orientation increases. Our law provides for equal opportunity.

The judge clarified, “In today’s social media age, we are trapped in an information bubble that leads to intellectual isolation. I encourage you to break free from the shackles of algorithms and reach out to those on the other end of the spectrum to understand their perspectives. 

India needs the services of well-trained and equipped manpower to achieve economic and social transformation. Independence not only marked liberation from colonial rule, but independence was a turning point in the social transformations that our society was trying to achieve.”
