Cops shouldn't take law into their hands

Law has its own course of action. Any authority or any person should wait up to that extent. The Telangana police should not take law into their hands. It would send wrong signals to the society.

In view of friendly policing, the duty of police is only to protect lives of people from criminals. Encounter of accused in Disha rape and murder case is not all solution to end of criminal activities.

It is only temporary relief to victims. No one will support the brutal rape and murder case of Disha. The criminals deserve severe punishment like hanging. Justice delayed is justice denied. Everybody will accept it. But it is the course of judicial system.

The police cannot get back their lives. Their lives are also important just like Disha. We should never forget that right to live is one of the basic human rights. Article 21 of the Constitution guarantees everyone right to live and liberty. The encounter raises so many serious questions against the police department.

The encounter indicates that police department has no faith on judicial system. It reflects that there is no difference between Maoists and the police. Morally, from here onwards, the police had lost their authority to question the acts of Naxalites.

They are also giving Judgements according to the people wish in people's court. Shall we support the Naxalites? Shall we praise and honour Naxalites? The government should understand the root cause of things happening like this. Poverty and internet culture are main reasons.

Let the Ministry of Law & Social Justice initiate awareness classes on safety of women. The judiciary department should open more number of courts to clear pending cases and at same time it should open fast track courts. Every criminal is punishable as per law. People and media should cooperate with the police department.

CAB will make India another Pakistan

The Citizen Amendment Bill that was tabled in the Lok Sabha will greatly strain the pluralistic fabric of the country. The idea of India that emerged from the independence movement, and as enshrined in our Constitution, is that of a country that aspires to treat people of all faiths equally.

The use of religion as a criterion for citizenship in the proposed Bill would mark a radical break with this history and would be inconsistent with the basic structure of the Constitution.

It prohibits the government from denying to any person equality before the law or the equal protection of the laws within the territory of India. The Bill should be immediately withdrawn and replaced with appropriate legislation that will address the concerns of refugees and minorities in a non-discriminatory manner.

The proposed law was approved by the 16th Lok Sabha but it lapsed after not being introduced in the Rajya Sabha. This time too, its passage in the Lower House is expected to be easy, where the BJP-led National Democratic Alliance has majority. However, the government may find it difficult to push it through the Upper House.

Protests have been going on against the draft law in the North East and cities such as Delhi and Bengaluru. Opposition parties such as the Congress, the Samajwadi Party, the All India Majlis-e-Ittehadul Muslimeen, the Trinamool Congress, and the Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam are against the amendments.

The passage of the Bill will mark the definitive victory of Muhammad Ali Jinnah's politics over that of Mahatma Gandhi's and reduce India to a Hindutva version of Pakistan.
