Is Modi's promise of decriminalising politics , mere lip service or word of a Gentleman? “People never lie so much as after a hunt, during a war or before an election” said Otto Von Bismarck. In 2014 election campaign, Narendra Modi made an explicit promise that if he became the PM, “ No accused (with criminal charges) will dare to fight polls. Who says this cleansing is not possible?” Mr Modi has delivered enough and more lectures on the issue of eliminating political crime BUT one is bound to be suspicious when his actions do not match his words and the same was seen in the appointment of Keshav Prasad Maurya ( facing about a dozen criminal charges) as the president of BJP in UP. ‘Politics' is often called a 'dirty game' where there are no permanent friends/enemies, only permanent interests. Way back in June 2002, the political watchdog (election commission), on the direction of Supreme Court, issued an order that each candidate must submit an affidavit regarding the information on his/her criminal antecedents. But interestingly , at an ‘all-party meeting' reps of 21 political parties decided that the said order should not be allowed to be implemented, clearly upholding the Gospel truth ‘birds of a feather flock together' . Coming back to Mr Modi’s promise, in a recent report, Additional Solicitor General has said that recommendations of the ECI and the law commission, favouring lifetime disqualification of politicians with criminal cases against them, was under ‘ active consideration’ by the Centre. Also, the Centre has agreed to special courts to deal with cases against MPs and MLAs. With these special courts, an end is in sight to the inordinate delay in prosecuting politicians who have been sitting pretty in their positions for far too long. It’s time for the near and dear ones of such politicians (with criminal background/cases) to brace up and not die of shock like Lalu's sister who couldn’t bear the shock of his 3& 1/2 years jail sentence in a fodder scam case.
A 2 days old baby girl is flushed down the toilet by her own parents. A man in UP hangs up his wife, beats her, makes a video of the same and sends to her parents for demanding dowry. A daughter is denied a share in her father's self acquired property. A girl is raped. Such incidents and even more gruesome crimes are committed against the women in our country but why is it that rapes get more attention as compared to other forms of crimes like female infanticide, acid attacks, sexual harassment/exploitation, dowry deaths, cheating, murder, wife battering, maltreatment at home, honour killings? Is it because'sex sells' even in crimes? The rape crisis is just one facet of the multitude of problems that reflect the gender discrimination scenario in our country which are seen right through'womb to tomb'. It's quite interesting to see how in the wake of brutal rapes and murders, the whole country takes a 'holier- than- thou' stand, passes quick judgements on the accused, without analysing their own conduct and contribution in crimes against women. Popular media is rife with news of rapes which appear to be the most rampant and high profile of all the crimes against women. This hype in the media compels us to believe that rapes are on a dramatic rise. However, studies have shown that rapes have, more or less, followed a flat trend while the most dramatic rise has been seen in number of cases registered under cruelty by husband and his relatives. Cruelty by husband and his relatives, domestic violence and dowry related crimes account for more than half of the crimes against women. However, these are not considered worthy of our attention since the very powerful media is busy covering certain brutal and violent incidents having political undertones. India is traditionally a male dominated society where masculinity is about men acting tough, freely exercising their privilege to lay down the rules in personal relationships and above all, controlling women by making them limited and obedient to perform different functions of daily life. There are many laws but 'brutalisation of women 'seems to be on the rise and becoming too broad. Thousands of girls are becoming victims of this evil on a daily basis, which reduces their self respect, dignity and status, thereby hindering the social, economical, political and cultural progress of our country. Male dominated societal norms, economic dependence, overall lower status of women further exacerbates these crimes . Politicians are only as good as the people. Beastial masculinity and inefficiency of judicial and political system is a daunting challenge. We as a society need to modify our mindset regarding women and get our act together to accept them as human beings with equal rights, deserving equal respect and status. There is an urgent need for stricter laws, faster convictions, larger representation of women in judiciary and law enforcement. However, these are also symptomatic measures. Our society needs deeper surgery and extensive treatment, starting at home and continuing through years of schooling and beyond, which is undoubtedly a generational effort which must be collectively made by HRD and law ministry. As the journey of a thousand miles begins with one step, we should let these incidents be the trigger which forces our society to take this first step. Let's start now.
Legislation against Self proclaimed Godmen(& women) India has a flourishing market for self styled Godmen(& women) who make millions by fooling and deceiving illiterate and ill-informed people in the name of spirituality.A close nexus between power, politics and money creates a perfect business model which enjoys political patronage. These self proclaimed Godmen are nothing but ambitious con artists and perverts hiding behind masks and deceptive garbs. They are minting money, abusing innocents, ruining multiple lives by deception, falsehood and religiosity in the name of God. They are emotionally, physically and financially exploiting people by manipulating their frailties. However, now in the wake of violent incidents and illegal activities in the name of spirituality all over the country, there's a need to curb these Godmen and save people from becoming their victims. Though one feels that education and literacy is a solution to many a problems, it is not enough when it comes to these Godmen as a large number of their followers come from well educated people, politicians, filmstars, business tycoons, who endorse them for their own vested interests. India's obsession with these Godmen can only be cured with a qualitative change in the social consciousness, which may take a long time and keeping this in view, there is a need for legislation against such Godmen who con people in the name of God by taking advantage of their fears and insecurities. They gain power over minds of gullible people who seek instant and magical solutions to their various problems, not realising that the power to save themselves lies within each one of them. Without any further delay, Govt.should enact a law and protect its people from becoming victims of these impostors who call themselves'spiritually evolved'.
