Odisha Governor Inaugurates Museum of Justice At Barabati Quila In Cuttack

Cuttack: Odisha Governor Ganeshi Lal on Saturday inaugurated the refurbished Museum of Justice inside the Barabati Quila in Cuttack in the presence of Chief Justice S Muralidhar and Judges of the Orissa High Court.

Speaking on the occasion, the Governor said the Museum of Justice is a matter of pride for the entire country. He stressed on the awareness in every action for upholding righteousness and complimented the judiciary for upholding righteousness in true sense.

Chief Justice Muralidhar said history has not only been honoured but also been created through the Museum of Justice. The Record Rooms of the High Court and District Courts containing old records dating back to 19th century were the real trigger behind the thought to rejuvenate the High Court Museum as the Museum of Justice.

“The glorious history of Odisha including the stories of freedom fighters, famous personalities and events lay hidden in these records and the High Court has decided to showcase them in the Museum of Justice. The Museum will reflect not only the legal system of Odisha but also that of the entire country because Odisha mirrors what is happening elsewhere,” he added.

Justice Debabrata Dash said Odisha has a rich heritage of justice delivery system and the Museum of Justice showcases its glorious history from ancient period. Justice Sashikanta Mishra said the Museum reflects the deep sense of commitment of Chief Justice S Muralidhar towards the State of Odisha and its people.

The first publication of the Museum of Justice was released in the inaugural function which contains information on the rejuvenation of the Museum.

Former Chief Justice of India Justice GB Patnaik, former Judges of the High Court, Advocate General, Bar members and senior government officials attended the inaugural function.
