Who is supreme?

This refers to the news item ‘Judiciary can’t scrap law made by parliament, says Kaira’ (July 9). What if the present National Assembly passes a law allowing the Indian Army to cross the border to protect its members from the wrath of the public or for any other reason?

This is something which our MNAs are perfectly capable of doing – judging from the kind of bills they are going to table in the next few days. Wouldn’t the judiciary still be allowed to scrap such a law?
