Hari Om.”

Justice Markandey Katju is not happy with reports that Times Now Editor-in-Chief will be provided Y-category security by the government. According to a report, Goswami will get 20 guards, including two personal security officers, who will protect him 24×7. “Goswami is being given security on the basis of a threat-perception analysis by the IB. We will go by the IB recommendation. He faces threats from Pakistan-based terrorist groups due to his comments against them on Times Now,” a Union Home Ministry official, who did not want to be identified as he is not authorised to speak to the media, told the Hindustan Times.

However, Justice Katju was not amused with the news. “This joker who has nothing in his head except his arrogance will get 20 guards night and day by the Govt. for his security. Hari Om,” he said in a Facebook post.

In another post, he wrote: “Why should Arnab Goswamy be provided Govt. security, and that too of the Y category, which means 20 guards will be with him day and night. Who will pay the salaries of these guards ? It will be the government, which really means the public, because these salaries come from the taxes we pay. So we will have to pay for Arnab’s security.

Arnab is surely getting a huge salary from his employer. Why should he not pay for his security from his own pocket?”

He further said: “There are many private security agencies which provide armed guards. Why did Arnab not hire them ? Or else his employer, which is a very affluent business house, could have done so I believe some other mediapersons who toe the govt.line have also been provided similar security by the government. Is this not deplorable ? Must the public for these hired ‘tattoos’ and buffoons?”

    I agree. If he learns to control himself sensibly he can live a safe life like the rest of us & the world will be a happier place without his public display of arrogance.

          Kaju - the Congi should research on why Teesta is given 1.4 cr for writing text book, Why Barkha gets the Padmasree, How the Neheruvian intellectuals lived in Govt. Bungalow in Delhi. And lastly why crores of rupees wasted for Safety of Robert Vadra and his families?

            Having been a CJI if Katju does not even know that the Consution of India guarantees as a fundamental right , the Right to Life and Liberty, to any citizen of India, and can be protected even under Z-Category, then Katju is the REAL JOKER...

              Mr. Katju please make up your mind please. You called Sant Bhindranwale that Bhindranwale was a feudal bigoted village and according to you every religious person is an . Now you are calling Arnab Goswamy a joker. In my opinion Goswami is a bigger than a joker but he is an educated Joker planted by big corporate. You said only science can help India progress. Tell me what science is going to do when India is run by jokers like Mr. Modi, who only want Hindu, Hindi and Hindustan.

                        Mr.Katju, Read fully....On one hand you cannot indulge in slander, libel,...et al and on the other hand you cannot claim to hail from the judiciary. It is CONTRA LEGEM. I mean, such words as JOKER,...etc and then the BIHAR and KASHMIR,...etc have put you in low light, with your own actions. The same individual who ped judgements in this ancient and sacred land of India, slowly but steadily lost respect among the general public. I sincerely suggest you AGE WITH GRACE and uphold the SANCY of the JUDICIAL POSITION that God graced you with in such a huge democracy. Let the Boys and the Men fight it out. But You should maintain a healthy distance from the bickerings of human society of which post-retirement you are NO LONGER AN ACTIVE PARTINT. True to your name, as the great sage Markandeya, WITHDRAW from this society and it's bickerings and devote more time to DIVINITY.

                            This man has behaved like a clown all the time and has rightly been pulled up by the Supreme Court. The retion of judiciary has been brought down by him. He deserves to be shunned by the civil society of India

                              If useless Raul Vinci and Bianca can have Z or Z security why not a patriotic Indian journalist is secured with Y security?

                                        Katju's Vs Arnab. Fight between two fools (Chu.. Hindi). Both are hogging lime light by making villains and that what sell well in India. I agree, Times Now should pay for the security expenses.
