Apex Court’s ruling against the centre’s review petition serves as strong deterrent to rioters

Published

on

The supreme court of India has made it amply clear that it will never be bogged down by the increasing spate of violence in various parts of the country and has stuck to its earlier decision ensuring that while the interests of the SC/ ST communities would be fully protected it will under no circumstances allow the innocents to be victimised on false, fabricated, flimsy or biased grounds under the Prevention of Actrocities against the SC, ST Act.

The honourable apex court has very specifically and unambiguously stated that judiciary can’t be blackmailed through violence and killings as there is nothing wrong in ensuring the safety and security of innocents who unfortunately become the targets of vindictiveness and conspiracies under such acts though the lowest sections and the oppressed classes of the society has every right and privilege to safeguard themselves under such acts, which is also the need of the hour.

The most unfortunate part of the whole episode is that people of various communities get influenced by the political motives of parties who use such occassions and opportunities to divide them for polarisong votes on caste and communal lines. This needs to be curbed in the wider national interest. After the judgement of the apex court on this act the way our country witnessed horrible riots killing several persons all over the country and leading to collosal loss of hundreds of crores unambiguously speaks of the fact that caste and communal oriented political parties n leaders exploit such situations to their full advantage by propating rumours through the social networking sites and other means thus allowing the law of the land go to winds.

This is the greatest tragedy of our country. Riots are no solution to any problem as in democratic polity courts are there to give justice and if one has any grudge against any judgement he or she can go for review justice by approaching higher courts or channels entertaining review petitions. While there have been hundreds of thousands of examples of misuse of such acts enacted to protect the oppressed classes there is no denying the fact that even today, after seven decades of independence the inhabitants of the oppressed classes in the rural areas and illeterate sections of the society are tortuous victims of forward classes, the rich, affluent and the influential, who need to be protected and safeguarded at all costs and acts like prevention of atrocities against the SC n ST work as their legal and judicial safeguards.

It may be recalled that during the hearing the apex court has put forward the statistics of such cases saying that out of total 15000 cases registered under the SC, ST prevention of atrocities Act, 1989, more than 11 thousands accused have been freed, whereas about five thousand cases were found to be concocted, fabricated, frivolous and biased.

We sincerely hope that the better sense will prevail amongst the leaders and political parties including those involved in such deadly riots by realising their past blunders and ulterior motives of politically capitalising such situations for petty interests and instead pay heed in future to respect and honour the sentiments and judgements of the judiciary. After all political morality and ethical considerations demand such decency. What’s your take friend?
