“Ruling Governments, police and justice system must act fairly and equally to all the citizens.”
Over the years many times we have seen Double standards of Justice system in India. The Indian constitution in big letters say fair and equal justice to all citizens. And all ruling political leaders take oath to abide by and follow the constitution. But after coming into power the ruling political leaderships and Governments openly violate the constitution and follow double standards of justice.
There is one set of very tough laws to act against minorities. And then there is very soft, Dumb and Blind laws to act against the guilty pro Hindutava forces. The ruling Governments, police, Intelligence agencies, CBI etc. are quick to act against to charge, arrest and punish the accused belonging to minorities. But the same ruling Governments, police, Intelligence agencies, CBI etc. act Dumb, Deaf and Blind when they have to charge, arrest and punish the guilty right wing Hindutava persons.
Some people might find it very tough and too strong statement against the justice system in India. But over the years what we have seen being practiced then it’ll be seen as very justified. How many times we have seen ruling Governments accuse minorities of violence and terrorist activities. And then they act very tough against minorities to quickly charge, arrest and punish minorities. Not only that innocents belonging to minorities are killed in fake encounters, shootings and police atrocities. But on the other hand how many times we have seen right wing Hindutava forces burn properties, businesses belonging to minorities, attack and kill minorities.
The pro-Hindutava forces openly in the name of Cow protection, Love Jihaad, Valentine day etc. attack and kill innocents belonging to minorities. But the same ruling Governments, police, CBI etc. act Dumb and Blind. And totally fail to act against the guilty Hindutava forces killing innocents. Over the years ruling Governments under both Congress and BJP leaderships, thousands of innocents belonging to minorities Sikhs, Muslims, Christians, Dalits have been killed by the pro-Hindutava forces. But all those ruling Governments have failed to punish the guilty pro-Hindutava forces.
Very recently on 26th Jan. under the Indian flag hoisting excuse the pro-Hindutava forces attacked Muslim minority in a town in UP state. They attacked and burnt houses and businesses belonging to minorities. But unfortunately, one Hindu died that day. Guess against whom the government and police acted? Around 100 Muslims were charged and arrested for violence and killing. But the real guilty Hindutava leaders who created violence and attacked Muslims are walking around freely. Another big thing is that one Hindu got killed and Government arrested close to 100 Muslims. But strangely when thousands of innocent Sikhs and Muslims were killed in 1984 and 2002 then the ruling Governments, police failed to arrest and punish the guilty all these years. Doesn’t that sound like Double standards of justice system being followed by the ruling Governments and ruling political leaderships ?
Earlier in January some Judges from the Supreme Court of India have raised voice against irregularities in the Justice system. Therefore it is very important for every citizen and leader who believes in the Indian constitution to raise voice against such double standards of justice system. Why the Governments, police and justice system are quick to act against and punish to give death sentences to guilty belonging to minorities? Whereas the same ruling Governments have failed to punish the guilty Hindutava forces involved in killing thousands of innocents belonging to minorities.
All the ruling Governments, police and justice system must act fairly and equally to all the citizens. And make sure to provide fair and equal justice to all citizens. The ruling Governments must not openly follow the double standards of justice and violate the constitution of India.
