H. R. Khanna
Hans Raj Khanna (3 July 1912 – 25 February 2008) was a judge of the Supreme Court of India (1971–1977). Two of his judgments form the basis of modern Constitutional Law, decades after they were delivered. In the Habeas Corpus case during the Indian Emergency, four other judges agreed with the government view that even fundamental rights like the right to life stood abrogated during Emergency. Khannas dissenting opinion, claiming that the Constitution did not permit right to life and liberty to be subject to executive decree, is widely regarded as a landmark in Indian democracy. Khanna had previously authored the Basic Structure Doctrine of the Constitution of India in Kesavanand Bharti v. State of Kerala which curtailed Parliament\'s amending power, restricting its scope of amendment in areas which were part of the Constitutions basic structure.
