New Delhi: The Chief Justice of India T.S. Thakur on Sunday brushed aside the debate on intolerance and said it may have political dimensions, but as long as there is rule of law in this country, judiciary is capable of protecting the rights of all people guaranteed under the Constitution.

In an interaction with journalists at his residence a few days after assuming office as the 43rd CJI, Justice Thakur said, “This {intolerance} is a political issue. I am heading an institution which protects constitutional rights of all citizens and some times also non-citizens. So long as rule of law is there and Judiciary is functioning, no one should feel threatened.”
