The Gujjar issue needs baby scrutiny
I am back after a break. I was stunned at the stand of the Supreme Court that it will not get involved in strict scrutiny of legislative action. I thought this pretty much settles hope for rational debate on pretty much any subject.
Issue : The state just killed 35 Gujjars who were protesting against a system that denies them the same rights that other groups in similar situations took for granted.
The complete freedom of the various entitlement and caste based programs from any data or accountability is going to cost the country dearly.
You really cannot blame Bainsala for asking : “Why cant we have what the Meenas have ? ” He has been asking this legitimate question for a peacefully long time now. Coming to think of it, most of us are probably wondering the same thing.
Any answers ?
Hint : Dont try too hard.
