Laws Swinging Cradle to Grave : Gallows to Pillows

Laws Swinging Cradle to Grave : Gallows to Pillows

The Year 2015 has been noted for an addition to its stereotype judgments; embarked and enshrined as ‘crude decision of the apex court’,for deciding the fate of a terrorist-cum-human for gallows. It has been decided after a prolonged wait of 20 years that 257 victims of 12th march 1993 Bombay Bomb Blast~Black Friday~, have perceived justice and the same appeals to them as incomplete, turning out into a National catharsis. With myriads of expectations and eyes lurking for justice, the cause of justice innocuously turned into rage of revenge and thirst of avenging the victims of bomb blast. The onus rested on the incumbency of 20 years of governance and the question of justice was brought up, at the beginning of each term, but with the glimpse, government could have taken a positive step towardsignominious efforts of predecessors; the demos prudential were left with a hope gripped in hands and painted in shades of saffron. The current scenario contemplates eyes of the common that the unprecedented issue is finished within a span of 2 weeks and still there are masses whostill believes that the justice is not served and questioned the technicality of law. The heartfelt condolences through empathy towards the terrorist-cum-human screamed louder than the shredded souls and bombed bodies. The questions raised by the rudimentary section of society left the “ignited Minds”to hover into the correctness of the actual issue at hand and left the righteousness of illicit actions to decide the fate of ‘’he who to be hanged’’. The 21st century has also stepped as a growth of Media and evolution of chivalrous mindset of scrupulous people, now they have actually learnt to raise a question and curb the dominating HAND. But eventually with time the power to raise question was capriciously confused with raising an issue rhetorically, they only wanted solution as the one they had decided while raising the issue. Thus this ideology and methodology turned the principle of ‘’Due Diligence’’ futile and connoisseur of law was vehemently questioned. The renaissance of conscious awakening, filtered people with a power in form of a right to fight for justice, rights and welfare, but consequently the same power left surreptitiously, a...

Jargon of Killing Oneself: Injustice in law?

The concept of suicide has been developed since ages long. Historically, Suicide was considered as a serious offense. But modern society has changed the perspective of many westernized country. But many Asian countries like India still criminalize even attempt to suicide. People are penalize and imprison after their failed attempt. Tragedy doesn’t ends there their family who are already grief stricken after the death are made to follow legal consequences. In India section 309 of the IPC criminalizes attempt to suicide. Suicidal tendency is an unhealthy condition arising of an abnormality.   Circumstances leading   them behind   the legal bar  will surely worsen the condition. If the law enforcement bodies are shifting their focus from legal sanctions to medical sanctions it will create positive frequency around to get more vocal for this cause. There are three different kinds of attempt to suicide depending on the way people attempt it and the manner in which it gets legal sanctions.  Sometimes people   are deliberately reporting the matter to the police as accidental so as not to get into penal actions and even hospital are frequently denying to admit suicide attempters in case not to get into trauma or stigma. So at last   patients lacks the even only emotional support they can get. Recent cases of   suicide during the last few years has revealed that there has been significant increase in attempt   to suicide.  So the government has decided to repeal the section 309 of the IPC by   passing Medical health care bill 2013 which can be stepping stone towards decriminalization of attempt to suicide. Suicide has been crime since ages long. Historically law against suicide and mercy killing has been developed from religious doctrine –“One(god) who gave should only take”. And external manifestation of the act done by the person by ending life was so against the natural law of the land.

What if Rumi would have been a politician and a Law-maker? – Siddharth Acharya

What if Rumi would have been a politician and a Law-maker? – Siddharth Acharya

The article has been written as a tribute to sufi saint  Jalāl ad-Dīn Muhammad Rūmī and analyzing  the idea of presence of someone like Rumi in heated sphere of conflict between two warring nations India and Pakistan. “Be like the sun for grace and mercy. Be like the night to cover others’ faults. Be like running water for generosity. Be like death for rage and anger. Be like the Earth for modesty. Appear as you are. Be as you appear.” – Rumi Rath-yatra by Lal-Krishna Advani in 1990, Exodus of Kashmiri Hindu pundits, demolition of Babri Masjid, Godhra riots, Malegaon Bomb blasts, controversial 26/11 attacks and surreptious killing of Hemant Karkare, Vijay Salaskar and Ashok Kamte on the night of 26/11 somewhere has involvement of element of religion into politics, Assam riots and the latest one being AkbaruddinOwaisi’sferocious and hard hitting speeches in Nizamabads brought series of religious outrages back in our country. Evidently, elections are not far and every political party be it Congress or BJP and new stalwarts like Maharashtra NavnirmanSena and Majilis-i-Itihaad will not loose even a single opportunity to champion the cause of there regions and religions. Few of them will gain power out of this and others like always keep mum about everything in order to save there traditional vote banks. Communal politics laid its foundation long back during British regimeand still persists in Great Indian Political Theatre. The eminent jurist and reknowned lawyer in sub-continent like Mohammed Ali Jinnah and great laureate Mohammed Iqbal in search of own political identity diverged from Hindu-Muslim unity and still after sixty five years of Independence religion still remains an inevitable ingredient of political campaigns. Rumi had always spoken about the introspection of soul and by seeing all this he would have been shedding tears and regretting of even giving it a thought. Rumi said “People of the world don’t look at themselves, and so they blame one another.” Need of a Philanthropist Watchdog: In the subcontinent, the Sufis made untiring, selfless and incessant struggle for the spread of Islam. They devoted their lives and gave up their homes to champion the cause of Islam in a miraculous way. Neither did they resort to...
