As a proud Indian, one thing strokes in my mind that, I should celebrate,
Constitutional day or week (Samvidhan Diwas) marked every year on 26th NOVEMBER
or Vijay Diwas celebrated as Victory day marked on 16th DECEMBER but on the
contrary, we’re ending up looking, our Nation in terrified shock with such news
which are making us shattered and breathless.
Can we ask ourselves that, is our Fundamental Rights are not available to us on
a certain dates, particularly on that date when the Constitution was adopted and
provided to us ? And who are responsible for turning our celebrations into
Having asked that, let’s consider some important dates, firstly On 26th of
November, the most petrified day for Mumbaikars and for Nation, when the series
of terrorist attacks took place in Mumbai which lasted for four days.
Ironically, On that same date, Our Constitution Assembly of India adopted our
Secondly, the day of 16th of December, the most terrifying gang raped which
shook the entire nation and known & marked as “NIRBHAYA CASE” and unfortunately
on the same date, we celebrates as Vijay Diwas in the memory of Indo-Pak war of
Coming onto the same analogies of dates, recently on 26th November 2019, while
the Nation was celebrating Samvidhan Diwas or Constitutional week, there were 5
terrified rape cases reported from across the country within one week.
- First case: Dr.Priyanka Reddy, A 27 year old girl gang-raped and
burnt alive in Hyderabad.
- Second case: A widow women from Tamil Nadu was gang-raped by 5 men where
one of the accused died by another rapist as they got in fight on their turn
to rape the victim.
- Third case: 11 year old girl abducted and raped by an Auto-rickshaw
driver in Chandigarh.
- Fourth Case: 14 year old girl was raped by 2 men in Vadodara.
- Fifth case: 25 Year old law student was abducted and gang-raped by 12
men at gunpoint in Ranchi.
Thus, Isn’t all those Rapist must be hanged immediately rather providing them
the chance to get acquit?
Can’t we ensure the Right to life of those victims by immediately punishing
those criminal rapist who have no humanity or can we just shot them?
Unfortunately, the answer is big NO. Now question arises, who is coming in our
way? who is stopping us from not taking a law in our hands to kill such culprits
who are curse on their mother’s womb? You will be Shocked to know that, the same
Constitution is coming our way to give instant justice because it says that
every individual have a right to defend themselves. So, what shall we do now?
As a legal professional, I don’t posses any answer to this but as a Human and
Citizen of India, I do have a right to choose a lives of those innocent victims
over the lives of those Inhumans and criminals.
Are we making priorities by choosing which crime is more heinous and who should
be hanged instantly? If the Justice is equal to all, then why is it so, that the
protesters only fight and do candle marching for those lives of victim which
media puts in lime light? What about other victims? What about those minors?
What about those, whose life has just began? Do you still think that justice to
one will be justice to all? No.
Whether the prevailing legal position our enough to provide justice to those
victims? As per the prevailing law, all such heinous crimes impose a punishment
of death penalty. Even a juvenile would be treated as major if he commits such
So, What’s the issue now?
Is Fundamental rights of accused is overriding the Fundamental rights of Victim?
Our main issue is INSTANT JUSTICE and JUSTICE FOR ALL and not only to those
victims, we are aware of, but also for those unheard.
Above all, coming back to the question, Who is reminding us that our fundamental
rights are not available on certain dates?
It’s upon all of us to think on this because I heard about Cartelisation in
business, not in heinous crimes such as rapes.
