Is this justice
After 26 years the verdict has been given on Bhopal Gas Tragedy.
26 years for the Judiciary to take the matter on board, to decide what punishment should be given to the accused. And I feel like laughing at the justice done by our judiciary. 2 years imprisonment for all the accused (one accused is absconding and other is no more in this world)
I was surprised to hear the interview of one of the victims (a small child at that time) this man looked about 50 years old and when asked his present age he informed that he is just 30 years but due to the after effects of the Gas Leak he has aged and started looking double his age, with most of his hair gone, with lots of allergies all over his body
There’s a whole new generation, the offspring of the gas-hit, who are suffering the horrendous side effects of the disaster, from deep psychiatric disorders to stunted growth.
Will 2 years imprisonment to the accused that too after 26 years of the actual accident compensate for the damaged done?
Why did the judiciary take so long to bring the matter on board and finish all the investigations, enquiry and arrive at a judgment?
I was told today that now the accused will move Sessions court, High Court and then Supreme Court against this order
That means another round of few years for the court proceedings and the final verdict and then what will happen? the accused will get relief from the high authorities and will go scot free with no feeling of guilt on their faces only pride on their faces and the proud feeling of fooling the public and making a mockery of the whole judicial system.
The financial compensation given to the victims seems like peanuts when compared to the agony which the gas tragedy had caused.
I am sure the advocates, the mediators, the bureaucrats involved must have minted money like anything without giving any thought to the actual victims, the actual sufferers
This only proves one thing that Human life has no value; the future of so many children is of no worth to our administration to our judiciary.
Why the Human rights activists are not raising their voice against this mockery of the whole system?
This reminds of the famous dialogue of Suuny Deol “Tarik pe Tarik “
And in the end nothing comes out of the long wait
And our media has the audacity to shout “ Justice done “
Is it called as justice done?
