On August 22, our apex court announced the judgement on triple talaq. After two days, a nine-judge bench announced Right to Privacy as a fundamental right. Both the judgements were historic and praise-worthy. All political parties, including PM Modi and Union Minister Ravi Shankar Prasad, embraced both the judgements.
Today, Punjab-Haryana CBI court also gave its verdict against the evilness of our society, but none of the ministers are praising this judgement. Why? Are they are not happy with the decision or it will hamper their electoral trust? Neither minister will not answer this question because its answer is “YES”.
Supremo of Dera Sacha Sauda, Baba Ram Rahim has a nexus with all the political parties. This is the reason why in 2002, the then incumbent government allegedly tried to save him from CBI inquiry. All the political parties and their senior leaders went to the dera of spiritual leader to take the blessing. In the backdrop of blessing, political parties also requested to Baba to give them political support. The list of political leaders who took the blessing of Baba includes Amit Shah, Kailash Vijaywargiya, Sushma Swaraj, Randeep Surjewala and many others. After winning the Haryana assembly elections, Manohar Lal Khattar, along with his cabinet of ministers, had visited Gurmeet Ram Rahim. This will now help you to understand why followers of Baba were not removed after the implementation of Section 144, why the violence in Panchkula resulted in the death of at least 30 people despite precautions supposedly being taken. For most people, this is a head scratching situation but for the politician, it is crystal clear and that is selfishness of votes.
Apart, from this today our media also played a step-mother role with the two sadhvis and the journalist who died because he exposed this case. Unlike the recent two judgements, where petitioners and judges were applauded, nothing has happened like that here. A very rare person knows the name of the judge who announced this judgement against the spiritual leaders who can create a havoc in five states.
For your information, the name of the judge is Justice Jagdeep Singh. A name also missed today is of journalist Ram Chandra Chattrapati who published the two anonymous letter in Newspaper “Poora Sach”. In these letters, all the misdeeds of Ram Rahim were mentioned. After some months of this, he was shot dead outside his house. Today is the day when he is praised by the whole nation and politicians like Shayara Bano and KS Puttaswamy. But, this is the misfortune of our society is that not all fingers can be equal.
