  1. To prove repeated( twice in 8 days,non-recovery circumstantially proves use in blasts) acceptance of hand granades and ammunition after listening that Anees Ibrahim Kaskar (friend of jewellery designer daughter,due to whom she didn't allegedly marry,owning 3 Cr flat even when father not alive )brother of Dawood sent explosives for bomb blasts,checking by opening bag by Bugum Kazi in presence of confessional statement of A-40 Hanif Kandawala,A-139-then absconder Abu Salem,A-119 Begum Zaibunnisa Kazi,A-117 Sanjay Dutt, all corroborating

    Dear Mr Justice,
    Mostrespectfully ,let me quote page 40-41 of Judgment in appeal by A-117 no 1060 of 2007-
    Quote"Confessional Statement of Manzoor Ahmed Sayyed
    Ahmed (A-89)
    Confessional statement of A-89 under Section 15 of
    TADA was duly recorded on 24.05.1993 (11:15 hrs.) and
    26.05.1993 (17:30 hrs.) by Shri Krishan Lal Bishnoi (PW-193)
    the then DCP, Zone III, Bombay. The said confession reveals
    as under:
    i) A-89 was a good friend of Abu Salem.
    ii) He owns a Maruti 1000 bearing No. MP 23 B-9264.
    iii) On 22/23rd January, 1993, A-89 met A-139. A-139 gave
    the keys of his car to A-41 who kept a black bag of
    weapons in it.
    iv) A-139 and A-89 then went to the first floor of 22 Mount
    Mary, Vidhyanchal Apts. They gave the bag to an oldlady, viz., Zaibunisa Anwar Kazi (A-119) and told her
    that the arms were for the purpose of causing riots, and
    were sent by Anees Ibrahim - brother of Dawood
    v) A-119 looked at the contents of the bag and then kept
    it at her residence.
    vi) After 8 days, A-139 called A-89 again and together with
    A-40, they went to the residence of A-117 where he
    gave them a blue rexin bag and a carton.
    vii) Abu Salem and A-89 then went to the house of A-119
    and gave the carton and the bag to her. Abu Salem
    told A-119 to keep those weapons safely as they were
    to be used for orchestrating bomb blasts..."unquote
    May kindly like to peruse for curative petition soas to pray for life imprisonment to Begum Kazi and also investigating role of her daughter living beyond means due to popularly alleged friendship with the prime conspirator Annes Bhai brother of Dawood Bhai..,

  2. sir, one of the justice of your panel in S.C. said that with increase in age crime does not 83 yrs old grandmother,suffering from cancer and treated with a severe cancer operation on 14 sept.2001 and other ailments was not given any relief who was indirectly involved in a personal case under 498A and 304B but this 70 yrs old lady zabunissa kazi who was involved in a national level case of destruction along with sanjay dutt is offered with pardon even after being sentenced to jail for 5 yrs by the S.C. under TADA act who according to you cannot live for long which was similarly applicable for my not that inequality and against the constitution of India?

  3. Dear Katju ji,
    In your previous blog you convicted Narendra Modi-ji for 2002 riots even though there is no proof, no court has held him criminal.

    SIT monitored by SC has given him a clean-chit, due to a decade of witch-hunt against Modi-ji people have a wrong image of Modi-ji. Unfortunately you also accused him, that is not fair on your part.

    Going by your own ideology, please post a news article or a blog to pardon Modi-ji and ask other people also to pardon him.

    Why I think Modi-ji should be pardoned by secular media and ex-congress people like yourself -
    1. He is not held guilty by any law in India
    2. He has suffered a lot in these 10 years, he couldn't go to US/Europe
    3. His carrier went down and he had to work hard to revive it
    4. He spread message of shri Vivekananda and shri Vallabh Bhai Patel
    5. There are lot of eminent lawyers, cricketers, film stars, business men who support him
    6. His way of repenting is a bit different, you can observe that there is not a single incident of communal violence after 2002, even though Gujarat always was a communally sensitive state.

    1. Hello brother. I am sure you must be a normal common man of this proud country. All I would like to say is that "Law needs proofs beyond reasonable doubt to convict but for your understanding, your sense is enough". So how about you try checking out the mysterious death of Harren Pandey and Malicious Prosecution of Sanjeev Bhatt. For your ease I am attaching the Wikipedia link kindly go through and decide the statement of Katju sir.
      A lot of controversy followed his murder and top BJP Leaders such as Chief Minister Narendra Modi and the then Deputy Prime Minister of India Lal Krishna Advani were under intense criticism from within the Sangh Pariwar and General Public for sidelining Haren Pandya and not providing him proper security despite threats to his life and his request for security cover. Pandya and Bhatt claim to know what happened in the meeting on February 27, 2002 at the Modi's residence. Pandya had a life threat from the same time. His close associate IPS officer Sanjiv Bhatt had discussed about the meeting with him. Bhatt had ever alerted Pandya about a threat to his life. Bhatt even spoke out about Pandya to SIT probing Godhra riots.[5]
      On August 29, 2011 all the 12 people accused of murdering Pandya were acquitted of the murder charges by the Gujarat high court, but other charges including criminal conspiracy and attempt to murder were retained.[6][7]

    2. If only wiki was considered a proof in any case, I would have considered the links. There may be many doubts against numerous people in this country. As Mr. Katju has himself raised an issue where people from muslim community are suspected and put in jail. Now I am just trying to point out the double speak that is going on here. The law says innocent till proven guilty and it applies to Modi also. Even if Modi was guilty he had the right to pardon. Now I consider Modi innocent cause I have some trust on the SC monitored SIT.
      BTW I would be really interested in knowing your thoughts about Rajiv Gandhi, under whom 8000 sikhs were butchered across India.

  4. Ref inappropriate appeal for Pardon dtd 28/3/13,by Retd Justice Katju ignoring ammunition including 25 hand granades thrown on poors in Machhimar Jhoparpatti being recd by Sanjay Dutt(33 then and educated in best schools thus exposed to law reading regularly newspapers) in full active discussion as per enclosed confessions in
    Dear Mr President/Mr Prime Minister/Mr Home Minister
    Mostrespectfully ,I have to bring on record that 2 fit cases of life imprisonment has been benevolently turned into few years of detention by Hon'ble Supreme Court.In full knowledge of handgranades recorded as under by SC ,Justice Katju is belittling SC by saying Self-defence when Dutts already had 3 licences of weapons.
    Begum Kaji receives ammunitions twice in 8 days,after checking the bag,both times being told that they will be used in Bombay blasts.Retracted statement when taken under TADA act with due procedure giving 48 hrs of time is still admissible.Justice Katju misleading President and PM by writing "a Prohibited weapon"while Sanjay Dutt kept handgranades which were later barbarically thown on SCHEDULED CASTES of Machhimar colony.If educated men of 34 years could not understand 25 handgranades brought by gangsters to Mumbai and accepts those on phone call by Annes Ibrahim Kaskar,brother of Dawwod,only J Katju can recommend him pardon to become political executive soon.
    In case of Bugum Zaibunissa Anwar Kazi,who received handgranades etc with due checking by her twice in 8 days with full declaration of purpose of use in Bombay blasts,Life sentence is a fit case and CBI must be advised to file Curative petition for greater punishment to her.
    J Katju is doing OB van politics like Arvind Kejriwal by taking only cases which will bring him media attention.Letters of mine citing relevant confessions recorded in SC Judgments is chosen to be ignored by J Katju.Which is similarly unfortunate as he rushed to appeal to Governor ,who does not have powers in Arms Act.Now writing to President and to feign his ignorance of law sending copies to PM and HM and not to Governor.On lighter note,J Katju is danger to employment of similar politician practicing appeasement like Digvijay Singh.
    Letters written to J Katju follow with the request to dismiss him from salaried post for misleading President and PM by selective citations and causing instability in state by belittling SC sitting in salaried position and hurting sentiments of majority community thus demanding the impossible to cause rift between 2 communities.
    high regards,

  5. Sir it was disappointing to note that you entered into this legal debate without being fully prepared for it. Dr. Swamy's request to you to quote relevant judgements should have been met with, especially since you yourself must have researched the whole case and found solid leal grounds to support your appeal for 'pardon'. As an admirer or your intellect, we hope to see a better legal presentation in future debates.

    257 people were reduced to a heap of mangled limbs and charred torsos.
    2007-03-24 ,

    Maria told Sanjay to tell his father the truth, and Sanjay conceded that he had been in possession of an assault rifle and some ammunition that he had got from Anees Ibrahim. Sunil Dutt wanted to know the reason why. He was not prepared for the answer: “Because I have Muslim blood in my veins. I could not bear what was happening in the city.” A crestfallen Sunil Dutt left the police headquarters. It was a moment almost worse than the shock of the previous day.

  7. It seems to be your strong supporter of terrorist organization from Pakistan. Because don’t forget this 1993 blast were planned by ISI chief and they took help of Dauood Ibrahim Kaskar. And Sanjay Dutt was close friend of Dauood Ibrahim. They met in Dubai and Sanjay gave his possible help for Mumbai Bomb Blast. These stories were known by every citizen of our country and you don’t know that it is more shocking and unbelievable. You are not only insulting my country but you are insulting Supreme Court and people of this country.
    It is shameful that you were the Supreme court Judge. I would like to put question in front of you “why don’t you feel the pain of our countryman’s. Someone who lost their families “.
    I lost my village friend in the 1993 Bomb Blast. If anybody kills your family member then only you will feel the real pain.
    Please stop all Non- Sense. Country and Patriotism is more important than our law. Why we create law to protect the peoples not criminals.
