Alien System is Alien to Indian Ethos | Amba Charan Vashishtha

    • In Ruchika case our system of justice is the criminal
    • The culprit definitely is Rathore, but more than that is the system of criminal jurisprudence which we have inherited from the British and earlier invading regimes. Our further crime was to blindly adopt and accept this system which has nothing to do with the Indian ethos. It protects the criminal and punishes the victim. The alien governments imposed this system as it suited them the most to dig their feet deep in power to keep the country a slave of them. The judicial system we are continuing with today does not in any way suit the Indian way of life, her culture, traditions and ethos. It helps the criminal to get off with his crime with boldness and honour and leaves the aggrieved crying for justice which normally gets inordinately delayed and in a majority of cases ends up in denial of justice.

      The latest instance is the way the lone Pakistani terrorist caught red-handed in killing dozens of innocent men and women in the 26/11 Mumbai attack is exploiting the present judicial system in India and making a fun of it. It is this strange system that is giving life to the Parliament attack case convict Afzal Guru sentenced to death by the highest court of the country about five years back.
