Today I was reading news on Jamia Millia Islamia university vice-chancellor offering legal aid to two JMI students arrested by authorities for alleged role in Delhi serial blasts. Further to this HRD minister Arjun Singh, came out with a statement that this is in national interest.
This is definately a noble cause which Mr. Minister is backing for whatsoever reasons and JMI VC is absolutely right in doing this??? I fail to understand when India has fair judiciary with provisions to provide legal aid to people in need; why this extra mile by two responsible people from society? Don’t they believe in processes what India has in place? If they feel the measures provided by Indian government are not up to the mark then why didn’t they came out with similar philanthropic motives in past where probably people might have needed it most.
I don’t see this much more than trying take out political mileage out of the a situation which is completely under investigation and Indian judiciary. It is must that such selective actions by people in position should be condoned to last possible extent. Mr. Singh, in your tenure as HRD minister you have already created many menance for the society and people who deserve but don’t fit in certain class; please refrain from dividing our society any further and commit yourself to as Indian…nothing more, nothing less.
