The Supreme Court of India, while taking up the submission of some advocates that  the decisions of the governors are not open to judicial review (in connection with the dismissal of the Arunachal Pradesh government), strongly reacted by stating that it can not be a mute spectator when democracy is being slaughtered.

The observation of the apex court is most welcome. Most of the dismissals of  state governments have been based on political consideration of the ruling party at Centre. Such dismissals of electric governments are a threat to the democratic fabric of the Nation.
