Who’s afraid of the law?

Has our approach towards justice stopped taking any other factor into account except the need to immediately replicate the rallying cry of lynch mobs? Just like in the Nirbhaya incident, lynching too has emerged as another dark area representing the failure of governance that Justice Verma had alluded to. We cannot assume that making laws that strike fear will save us all from further collapse.

It is about the bankrolling of hate-mongering political parties by the business class, unmindful of the fact that business, to grow, must have social harmony and peace as a given.
