N. Rau traveled abroad speaking to jurists. In Washington, Supreme Court Justice Frankfurter advised Rau not to include a due process clause in the Indian Constitution. Instead India should have a clause simply requiring that no one be charged with a crime but by the law of the land. That was the meaning of the Magna Carta in 1215 which said:</p><p>No freemen shall be taken or imprisoned &hellip; or in any way destroyed &hellip; except by the lawful judgment of his peers or by the law of the land.</p> Tue, 24 Apr 2012 19:28:51 +0000 37513 at http://wamc.org
