Ever Wondered Why Judges Break The Nib Of Their Pen After Passing A Death Sentence?
A death sentence is a very rare occurrence in any democracy. And it is a very known fact that after a death sentence is passed, judges break the nib. Since the time of the British Raj, the custom of breaking the nib after awarding a death sentence has been followed by Indian judges.
A death sentence, in principle, is a last resort action in dealing with extremely anti-social acts that cannot be resolved in any other way.
#3 The Reason?
Everything has a reason behind it. Frankly speaking, there are couple of reasons behind breaking the nib.
Keep reading ahead to know that reason.
#2 The First Reason
The first reason behind breaking the nib is:
It is broken in order to do away with the 'tainted' pen (having ordered the death of a person). Perhaps it is done by the judge as a way of distancing himself/herself from the judgement and the guilt of the same.
#1 The Second Reason
Also, Judges have no powers to review/revoke the judgement or order once it has been written and signed. Therefore the nib is also broken so that the judge may not think of reviewing his own judgement (no second, third thoughts).
