New Delhi A strong and independent judiciary was capable of protecting people from attacks on the inclusive values of Indian society, Chief Justice TS Thakur said on Sunday.

“As the head of the institution that upholds the rule of law and protects the constitution, the right of all sections of people will be protected,” Chief Justice Thakur said in his first media meet after assuming charge of the Supreme Court.


“Our existence is itself based on tolerance,” he said, wondering how some political people can twist it to their advantage.

Assuring that judiciary was there to protect and safeguard their rights, the chief justice said: “We are capable of protecting the rights of all sections of the people. It is our responsibility. Rule of law and constitutional guarantees are enshrined (in the constitution).

“What to talk of citizens, rights of all the people will be protected. There is nothing to fear.” He added: “The rule of law is even for non-citizens.”

Chief Justice Thakur said: “Itna badha desh hai, kuchh awaaj to uththi hai” (It is such a big country. Some discordant notes will be there.)

So long there was the rule of law, constitutional guarantees and an independent judiciary, “tab tak kisi baat ka dar nahin hona chaiye” (till then one should not fear anything).

Pointing to the long, rich and all-inclusive traditions of India, he said: “This country has been a home for all religions of the world. People who were persecuted in other places have come here and flourished.”

Describing it as “our heritage”, Chief Justice Thakur gave the example of Parsis who came from Persia saying they gave India the best industrialists and “finest legal minds” — referring to Nani Palkiwala and Fali Nariman.

Signal's encrypted messaging app continues to be down on Monday after facing global outage on Sunday.

Signal's encrypted messaging app continues to be down on Monday after facing global outage on Sunday. The firm said it is working to fix it. "Hold tight, folks! Signal is currently down, due to a hosting outage affecting parts of our service. We're working on bringing it back up," the firm said in a tweet on Sunday.

The status website says the encrypted messaging app is "experiencing technical difficulties" and many people are also getting an in-app error message that says the same thing. Signal allows for secure and encrypted video, voice and text communication, but users are unable to send any messages.

According to Downdetector.com, users started reporting outages around 11:05 PM Eastern Standard Time and it appears to be affecting people around the world. Comments shared on Downdetector.com indicates that Signal was down for users from India, US, Germany, New Zealand, Netherlands, Australia, Brazil and many other countries.

"Down in Midwest USA. Signal was started by people connected to which secret 3-letter organization? (Look it up) Yep, that's right! An app disguised a privacy app to trick you into sharing more private information than you would with another messaging app," a user said. "I think Signal is having a rough day. Good luck, Team Signal. I'm sure you'll have it sorted out in a snap," said another. The encrypted messaging service has climbed to the top spot in the free apps category of the App Store in multiple countries, including India. (IANS/ MBI)

Apple has acknowledged an issue where the "unlock with Apple Watch" feature might not work with its new iPhone 13 devices and promised to fix this issue with an upcoming software update.

User Monzilla88 on Reddit first reported the issue to the subreddit r/AppleWatch. They stated that both their iPhone 13 Pro and Apple Watch SE are up to date with the newest iOS and watchOS updates.

"Whenever I try to enable unlock with Apple Watch on my phone I get an error saying "Unable to communicate with Apple Watch," they posted. Monzilla88 claimed that they had tried unpairing and repairing, hard resetting both devices, turning on and off passcodes, but not no avail, the report said. More than 20 other users self-reported the same problem, with others noting that the feature works fine on iOS 15 on older models of iPhone, including the iPhone 11 Pro Max and the iPhone X.
