Fundamental Rights and the Posters of Hooligans

High court has asked the UP state government to take down the posters of hooligans, declaring it undemocratic. Mind it, they have referred them as anti-CAA protestors and not hooligans involved in vandalism. The court has declared that the law of laws cannot take away their rights to protest.

The idea of court is very noble and idealistic. However, the same court often fail to protect the commoner's fundamental rights. And also the safety and security of masses.

In this case also, the vandalism has caused inconvenience to masses, instilled fear in them, put extra burden on tax payers. What about the fundamental rights of those, civilized citizens?

Coming to the naming and shaming of the hooligans. The orders were given to put posters after initial investigation and by orders of magistrates. This is normal process, if the crime accused won't surrender.  Guilty or not guilty are proven in the courts later.

The posters can defame the person locally. What about news channels? News channels, the powerful visual media is the strongest medium. Has the courts of India, guts to question the nonsense of the news channels, who start defaming the person almost immediately after an incident or news breaks out?

One of the real name and shame examples is the false rape charges on mr. Roopkishore Agarwal, who was so upset with the defamation of media, that he committed suicide. But then courts fail to protect individual's fundamental rights.  Here is the News Archive.

On another incident, the young boy Sarabjit Singh was defamed by Jasleen Kaur and the boy suffered defamation by media, lost job, went through mental trauma. The courts of India failed to show any seriousness in the false defamation of the boy. Here is the News Link.

The Rohtak Sisters, falsely beating and accusing boys, did courts cared about the fundamental rights of the accused? The same courts, which opens up for providing justice to terror accused, rightly thou, failed to provide the right to dignity to the accused in this case. News Link

These were incidents of heinous crimes, which brings shame upto the extent, that one of the accused committed suicide. 

The hooliganism has costed more than 50 lives in Delhi, which started with similar hooliganism and converted into riots.

There are fundamental riots on either sides and courts must protect the fundamental rights of the innocents first. The commoner getting hurt, killed or getting disabled, without being guilty should be the first priority of the courts.

Since I came to know about the case of Umakant Mishra, I often use it as an example of apathetic behaviour of our justice system. A man losing 29 years of his prime, because of the apathy of the courts. Where was the fundamental rights, human rights or any basic rights protected? Here is the Link to the case.

The courts have failed to protect the individual's fundamental rights, their dignity, its own dignity for several cases. A common man and not guilty fear have fear of the courts, instead of having faith in them.

It is high time, the courts behave in a manner, where the commoners have faith and culprits have fear.
