The Indian Supreme Court has deplored the tendency of its courts to rule on petty issues such as rickshaw overcharging and unauthorised schools, saying that the judges should not try to run the government.

Dawn News reported on Monday that a two-member bench said during a judgement that it had come across cases where judges are trying to perform executive or legislative functions. The bench said judges cannot cross their limits and try to take over functions belonging to other organs of state in the name of judicial activism.

Now isn’t that interesting… comments?
