Retired High Court judge M F Saldanha retired from service in 2004. But, continues to use the emblems of Karnataka and Bombay High Courts in the letters, e-mails and his other written communication.
If Mr Justice Saldanha suspects misappropriation of money collected as relief fund for victims of rains and floods in Coorg by the Bishop of Mysuru and Archbishop of Bengaluru, why isn’t he moving the court is a question that begs an answer. Instead of crying himself hoarse over imagined irregularities by the Bishop of Mysuru and Archbishop of Bengaluru, Mr Saldanha’s intentions would appear honest if he knocks on the courts of justice. By repeatedly levelling allegations without any documentary evidence, Mr Saldanha clearly shows that he wants both the Bishop of Mysuru and Archbishop of Bengaluru replaced by persons, who are pliable by him.
Also, the language used by Mr Saldanha against the venerable Bishop and Archbishop while seeking a clarification on the relief fund is not harsh, but also prejudiced. How can he expect a reply to the clarification when the language he has used is harsh and prejudiced when the persons he is addressing are respected by not only the Christians, but also the general public.
