About Justice Rajindar Sachar:
- Justice Rajindar Sachar was a socialist, an egalitarian, a defender of civil liberties, a deeply engaged citizen of India, and, above all, a humanist.
- A man who believed in standing for the last man in the line, he was ‘armed’ with a moral compass that never wavered.
- He joined the Delhi High Court in 1970 but was transferred out of Delhi for voicing his opposition to the Emergency.
- During those dark days, he shared a close bond with justice H.R. Khanna, the lone voice of dissent in a Supreme Court that chose to side with Indira Gandhi.
- Brought back to Delhi after the Emergency, he rose to become the Chief Justice of the Delhi High Court.
