Restoration of Justice in India


American Politics | Political Science


Justice means giving all persons their due. Justice is the quality of being fair and reasonable. India has the largest democracy in the world. It has become noticed globally by most other countries, on the one hand, for its significant economic growth during the past two decades; and on the other hand, for its domestic unrest among people of different religions and castes. Under the rule of the present political party, India’s economic growth has experienced a sudden decline during the past three years. This drew my attention to find out the reasons for such a decline. A literature survey, analysis and review, reveal that religious persecution and social injustice seem to contribute to this economic decline. Considerations of the Biblical worldview, an evaluation of the judiciary system, and another relevant case study become supportive of my research. My hypothesis is that democracy and justice in India are failing the Indian people. By identifying the policy issues that are interlinking the decline in the economy and domestic unrest among the religious and caste minorities, the need for restoration of justice in the present government is highly recommended. Further research is proposed for implementing restorative procedures.
