Gang Rape in the Capital of India
Legal-action as per the present law is not acceptable to the people of India. People want stronger punishment. It is possible to change the law. Then, what is the problem now? This is a new trend. General-public is not part of govt. of India in practice. But, they are the fourth-piller as per the constitution of India. So, Govt., is unable to change quickly. What happens, if Govt., follows the public-demand/advice ?
Public will keep asking and making the govt., work for them. That is the only concern of the politicians now.
Ofcourse, second demand of the public is instance justice. Criminals need to be punished in less than a couple of months of time. This is common sense. But, there are a lot of beneficiaries of present system where several cases are pending in the courts of India for more than 10 years. Beneficiaries not only include, the criminals, their families and friends but also the legal professionals, brokers, politicians, so on and so forth.
What happends when govt. of India starts several new fast-track courts, where, courts will try to decide with-in a month and strict dead-line should be 3 months. If the case is pending for more than 3 months, Govt. court needs to close the case and such pending cases should be transferred to people-courts.
This is not going to happen over night.
But, very good to see the nation outraged.
I advise the media to take these 2 demands of the public to politicians in power and make sure, their response is validated on (1) stronger punishment and (2) instance justice.
Summary: It is a very good begining in India, but, helps the nation ONLY if media does the follow-up after people forget this incident. People have other things to do and hence, it is normal for them to move-on. Politicians are taking advantage of this sutuation.
Please respond with better suggestions.
Your written response helps our nation.
