Mr Tytler, will still have hope, despite you
With the news of the Delhi court decision to reopen the case against Jagdish Tytler spreads, there has come a glimmer of hope for thousands of victims of1984 pogrom. Some kind of hope in the judicial system of India…After so many years of blood,sweat and tears this might not even be enough but hope, even if it is miniscule, can make a lot of difference to the perception of the way the judiciary functions here.
While its a common knowledge that the high and mighty have always twisted the law to save their skin,I feel a sense of relief that all may not be lost. May be not just yet.
For any such case to drag along so much there is much to be learnt. Those who run the system must learn to sense the anguish and frustration of the victims. Empathy and sympathy should be part of the judicial process alongwith the hardcore technicalities of the law. The lawyers need to realise that they have a duty to fight for justice in the true sense.
The judges and the jury too must realise the power they have to affect the lives of the victims, which in such cases can be in extremely large numbers.
Once, I was talking to a lawyer friend and asked him about the fate of such cases and he candidly said, Rabb rakha.
