Agree with almost the entire statement except "It is our opinion that, due to the immense disparity in power and position, the Hon’ble Chief Justice of India cannot continue to hold office during the inquiry."
I do not think allegation/accusation is the stage at which someone must be forced to stop their profession. Whether they voluntarily choose to not continue till they are cleared is a different matter.

empowerment of women is very important for equality, so all pirates can do for this is a good cause and has reason.

I'd initially disagreed because it doesn't make sense to prevent someone from working just because they've been accused. But CJI has misused his position to thwart the accusation thereby implicating himself.
