Ensuring Social Justice – Journal


THIS is in reference to the editorial “Missing girls” (February 24). It is such a disappointment that despite the registration of FIRs by the families of the missing girls, recovery has been so lax and the police only began to pursue these cases after the court issued orders to that effect. .

It has been stated that the missing girls and women generally belong to disadvantaged families. Since they were not among the elite and their families were unable to grease adequate palms, if at all, the safety and well-being of the underprivileged did not receive the attention of our police.

If this is how the police service works, how would we be able to get justice? It is because the lower class people know that justice in this society requires a lot of money and many innocent people suffer just because of this one element.

Isn’t this a question to think about deeply to find the root cause of the problem so that our society can benefit from justice at all levels? Just because the families of the missing girls are not part of the privileged class, shouldn’t FIR in this case be taken seriously? The life of every human being is important, whether they belong to the elite or the lower class. Why do competent authorities always need an “order” from a higher authority to act? The issue of missing girls should have been considered before the court order as there were already a number of registered FIRs.
