FILLING THE UNJUST CRACKS: A CRITICAL VIEW OF SOCIAL JUSTICE
Main Article Content
Indian society has evolved out of various paradoxes and imperfections. Indian communities are so diverse in their origin and experiences, that, we don’t find a common picture of marginalization, exclusion, injustice, discrimination, assertion, etc. from all sides. It is very difficult for our largest democracy to assemblage all these varied questions into one common rule or national umbrella. Even the various efforts of upliftment and empowerment from the side of Indian polity, has created a differentiated hierarchical zone of power which further divides the lower sections into haves and have-nots. The path of social justice and its various mechanism through Indian Constitution has resulted into a positive space for historically marginalized classes. Even the socio-legal advocacy for these weaker sections from the side of Human Rights activist or social welfare agencies through writs, petitions or PIL, has created a civil and democratic space of public means. But despite a long journey (74th) of independence and republic symbol, cases of unjust discrimination and inhuman practices used to appear every single day for varied sections of Indian society.
This paper will look out the possibilities of providing all the philosophical principles of social justice on the reality ground. It will also critically examine most of the legal statements and decisions in the way through secondary data.
