HC ‘raps’ ex-judge for order on Punjab fake encounters
goes the title of one of the stories on the front page of The Tribune dated 27th November 2013. While this judgement itself needs to be challenged in the Supreme Court by some one, chances of the same are very remote. Who can take the cudgels against the state government, the omnipotent Punjab Police (so far as common man is concerned) and infallible judicial system of this ancient nation–all together? Nevertheless this quote from the judgement needs a closer scrutiny………The honorable bench , inter-alia , observes: ” The fact that Punjab Police went through a period of difficult times requiring special efforts to maintain law and order is well known and the police played a salutary role”. It goes on to add ” In this some excess may have been possible, but that does not make it a rule”
Bravo! My dear lords basking in the reflected glory of the achievements of the Police for telling us that human life is so cheap that no rules need to be followed for snuffing out the life of innocent people. It is hard to believe the members of this worthy bench were not aware of 25000 corpses that were disposed as unclaimed and rewards and promotions were given and accepted for those brave acts! Nor can they be so dumb as not to know that the person who uncovered the killing of 25000 innocent young boys himself became a victim of the insignificant “excesses” pardoned by the worthy judges! This judgement is going to embolden the already brutal police force and vendetta seeking politicians to break the law with even more impunity!
ABOVE ALL THIS JUDGEMENT IS AN EVIDENCE THAT MINORITIES CANNOT DREAM OF JUSTICE IN THIS NATION.
