How we improve Legal System in India?

There are many laws for women and even if a lady fights for her rights, justice is delayed or women are further harrassed during the process. At times, even the lawyers give wrong advice to their own client and see the ways as how to delay the case further to earn more money or at times, lawyer help the other party and take money from them and harrass you in front of others to earn more money from the other party. Do you think legal system will change only when their own daughters or sisters will suffer dowry death or when their own relatives suffer due to corruption in the legal system? We all know why Nithari Case happened. If corruption would'nt have been there, those parents who lost their children, would'nt have been suffering in pain? Or those officers who take bribe would they understand the pain of others only when such bad vibes hit their own family? In India has everyone got used to ignore corruption/injustice and accept as it is and see their own benefit only?

At the moment there are no hopes of any substantial improvement. The whole system needs overhauling. There should be drastic changes in the procedural as well as substantive laws.

Dear friends education of law is very important now-a-days in rural areas because people are not aware of thier rights and duties. Even though the Legal Services Authority is working hard to educate but is not sufficient government as to take steps to educate people with related to new bills and laws and peole as to participate in giving suggestions related to bills. According to me by educating people we can improve our legal system.

Dear Friends,

With due respect, its very easy to sit back and criticise the Country and its system. when ever i read or heard such negative views of young people towards country, it make me remember the statement of Kennedy " think not what country has given u but think what u have given to the country".

compare the situation prevailing before 5-10 yrs with present u may find improvement in life of individuals. such things are not overnite process its a gradual process and may take some time. till then just sit back and watch the changes and atleast apprechiate. :-)

 We should not lose hope. Live on hope till you are old and die. They your son will live on hope. He too will become old and die. The chain continues. This chain has been continuing since Muslims started ruling India 1200 years ago. Then the chain continued when English ruled more than 200 years ago. Congress started ruling in 1947 and our hope continues. The only problem is that the Chief Justice of India has lately come out berating corruption in judidicary and laws like 498A. But hope must continue.

 Reform and corruption go together.

 How many ills that face this country is due to Mahatma Gandhi or he is the holy cow and we should not speak ill of him because he is Mahatma and Father of the Nation? Don't we see Congressmen wearing designer suits, riding mercedes, living in palatial bungalows and always surrounded by henchmen and hangerson? Read Godse's statement at his trial.

 Rousseau said that he agreed to disagree. That was centuries ago. There may be many who disagree with what Godse said. Yes, you have every right to disagree with his views. But, you can't afford to ignore his speech at his trial which I reproduce below. 

Nathu ram godse's speech at the trial

DO read it fully Full text of Godse's speech at his trial.....

" On January 13, 1948, I learnt that Gandhiji had decided to go on fast unto death. The reason given was that he wanted an assurance of Hindu-Muslim Unity... But I and many others could easily see that the real motive... [was] to compel the Dominion Government to pay the sum of Rs 55 crores to Pakistan, the payment of which was emphatically refused by the Government.... But this decision of the people's Government was reversed to suit the tune of Gandhiji's fast. It was evident to my mind that the force of public opinion was nothing but a trifle when compared with the leanings of Gandhiji favourable to Pakistan.

....In 1946 or thereabout, Muslim atrocities perpetrated on Hindus under the Government patronage of Surhawardy in Noakhali made our blood boil. Our shame and indignation knew no bounds when we saw that Gandhiji had come forward to shield that very Surhawardy and began to style him as 'Shaheed Saheb' - a martyr - even in his prayer meetings...

....Gandhiji's influence in the Congress first increased and then became supreme. His activities for public awakening were phenomenal in their intensity and were reinforced by the slogans of truth and non-violence which he ostentatiously paraded before the country... I could never conceive that an armed resistance to the aggressor is unjust...

... Ram killed Ravan in a tumultuous fight... Krishna killed Kansa to end his wickedness... In condemning Shivaji, Rana Pratap and Guru Govind as 'misguided patriots,' Gandhiji has merely exposed his self-conceit... Gandhiji was, paradoxically, a violent pacifist who brought untold calamities on the country in the name of truth and nonviolence, while Rana Pratap, Shivaji and the Guru will remain enshrined in the hearts of their countrymen forever...

....By 1919, Gandhiji had become desperate in his endeavors to get the Muslims to trust him and went from one absurd promise to another... He backed the Khilafat movement in this country and was able to enlist the full support of the National Congress in that policy... very soon the Moplah Rebellion showed that the Muslims had not the slightest idea of national unity... There followed a huge slaughter of Hindus... The British Government, entirely unmoved by the rebellion, suppressed it in a few months and left to Gandhiji the joy of his Hindu-Muslim Unity... British Imperialism emerged stronger, the Muslims became more fanatical, and the consequences were visited on the Hindus...

The accumulating provocation of 32 years, culminating in his last pro-Muslim fast, at last goaded me to the conclusion that the existence of Gandhiji should be brought to an end immediately... he developed a subjective mentality under which he alone was the final judge of what was right or wrong... Either Congress had to surrender its will to him and play second fiddle to all his eccentricity, whimsicality... or it had to carry on without him... He was the master brain guiding the civil disobedience movement... The movement may succeed or fail; it may bring untold disasters and political reverses, but that could make no difference to the Mahatma's infallibility... These childish inanities and obstinacies, coupled with a most severe austerity of life, ceaseless work and lofty character, made Gandhiji formidable and irresistible... In a position of such absolute irresponsibility, Gandhiji was guilty of blunder after blunder...

....The Mahatma even supported the separation of Sindh from the Bombay Presidency and threw the Hindus of Sindh to the communal wolves. Numerous riots took place in Karachi, Sukkur, Shikarpur and other places in which the Hindus were the only sufferers...

....From August 1946 onwards, the private armies of the Muslim League began a massacre of the Hindus... Hindu blood began to flow from Bengal to Karachi with mild reactions in the Deccan... The Interim government formed in September was sabotaged by its Muslim League members, but the more they became disloyal and treasonable to the government of which they were a part, the greater was Gandhi's infatuation for them...

....The Congress, which had boasted of its nationalism and socialism, secretly accepted Pakistan and abjectly surrendered to Jinnah. India was vivisected and one-third of the Indian territory became foreign land to us... This is what Gandhiji had achieved after 30 years of undisputed dictatorship, and this is what Congress party calls 'freedom'...

....One of the conditions imposed by Gandhiji for his breaking of the fast unto death related to the mosques in Delhi occupied by Hindu refugees. But when Hindus in Pakistan were subjected to violent attacks he did not so much as utter a single word to protest and censure the Pakistan government...

Gandhi is being referred to as the Father of the Nation. But if that is so, he had failed his paternal duty inasmuch as he has acted very treacherously to the nation by his consenting to the partitioning of it... The people of this country were eager and vehement in their opposition to Pakistan. But Gandhiji played false with the people...

....I shall be totally ruined, and the only thing I could expect from the people would be nothing but hatred... if I were to kill Gandhiji. But at the same time, I felt that Indian politics in the absence of Gandhiji would surely be proved practical, able to retaliate, and be powerful with armed forces. No doubt, my own future would be totally ruined, but the nation would be saved from the inroads of Pakistan...

....I do say that my shots were fired at the person whose policy and action had brought rack and ruin and destruction to millions of Hindus... There was no legal machinery by which such an offender could be brought to book, and for this reason I fired those fatal shots...

....I do not desire any mercy to be shown to me... I did fire shots at Gandhiji in open daylight. I did not make any attempt to run away; in fact I never entertained any idea of running away. I did not try to shoot myself... for, it was my ardent desire to give vent to my thoughts in an open Court. My confidence about the moral side of my action has not been shaken even by the criticism leveled of against it on all sides. I have no doubt, honest writers of history will weigh my act and find the true value thereof.
