Justice and not Hypocrisy Please.

It looks like a cruel joke when Administrators of this country give advice to other countries (Australia, in the Haneef case) that Haneef should get justice, he cannot be detained for long etc.

A big BIG Joke. It is common for undertrails in India to be lodged in jails for months together without even being charged! What if Haneef was arrested in Bangalore on similar charges? Invariably, a few politicians would have exhibited foot-in-mouth disease immediately by announcing a 'catch'. Policemen would not hesitate to give interviews. Investigations be damned! "It's a diplomatic success..." says a senior govt. officer. Sir we don't know whether to laugh at your silly statement, or thank Aus. justice system for being at least fair, if not perfect.

Why is Sri Krishna Committee Report on Mumabi Riots not being pursued with zeal? Why is it that hardly anyone been punished for Gujarat Riots? Why is anti-sikh riots of 1984 regarded as a forgotten chapter with almost no convictions?

When justice is not meted out in the same manner to ALL citizens, or it is sought to be applied to select cases - we no longer have 'justice', we simply have 'laws', and a 'legal' system. And a lot of Hypocrisy.

Am glad that Haneef is free (I am assuming that is not guilty) and that the australian justice system has let him go free even though his visa stands revoked.
The sad part as you rightly said is that the same would not have happened in India, and definetely in not in less than a month :(

What surprised me in Haneef case is the statement of our PM, as he claimed that he could not sleep for few days because of the innocent Muslims. Every move in this country is motivated by political issues, democracy is killing the country.

Sajith, Raghu, Pijush> thx for your comments. As someone said.. democracy is meaningful only to educated societies. In all other societies the rogue and the most popular get elected, not the most deserving.

Why are laws being applied to select cases? A case of Selective Justice??
