Justice Markandey Katju of the Supreme Court on Saturday said 95 per cent of the people in the country are immigrants and are being cemented by the Constitution. “India is a country of migrants and 95 per cent of the people in the country are immigrants and are being cemented by the Constitution which ensures that the country of diversified cultures, traditions and religion are bound together,” he said, while speaking at the Diamond Jubilee celebration of the Shillong Bench of the Gauhati High Court, here. Justice Katju said as the Constitution provides secularism, freedom and other democratic values, people should not be forced to accept laws and customs which are outside the purview of the Constitution. He said that the tribal customary laws in the North Eastern states should not be abolished which follows federalism as enshrined by the Constitution of India. Stating that the Constitution has made India into a modern industrialized country, he urged people to uphold its spirit and honour the founding fathers of the Constitution. Gauhati High Court chief justice Jasti Chelameswar informed that the process for separating the judiciary from the executive in Meghalaya has started. He also underlined the need for qualified people to become judicial officers if separation of power takes place.
