Asifa, a beautiful and innocent 8-year-old girl from the district of Kathua, Jammu, and Kashmir, was allegedly drugged, barbarically gang-raped for days by grown men and if that did not satisfy their demonic urges, allegedly murdered and dumped on the streets for none.
Where did they carry out this crime? Allegedly inside a mandir(temple). Just let that settle for a second!
Two of the main accused are Special Officers from a Special Investigating Team, set up to investigate juvenile crimes.
Let that settle in for a second, too!
A group of rogue lawyers cum self-styled crusaders have in the name of Lord Ram, protested the arrest and charge-sheeting of the accused, while implicitly condoning these criminal acts.
Hey, because it is fine to carry out these heinous acts to establish and buttress our great Hindu dominion over other communities!
These men are not lawyers, they are the sole reason our Criminal Justice System is a sham. These men should never be allowed to represent anyone in Indian courts.
These men are the reason why Lawyers in India, such as myself, are frowned upon by the general public and categorised as professionals with tainted moral fabric.
A criminal complaint has been filed and FIR’s have been lodged against these rogue lawyers.
In the interim, we must urge the Bar Council of India to remove their names from the State Bar roll, under appropriate sections of the Advocates Act, 1961, pending the above criminal investigation.
Can you imagine reposing your trust and confidence in such men if you ever find yourself knocking the doors of our courts?
And what is frightening is they don’t exist only in small states like Jammu & Kashmir. They exist and practice in major cities and towns, all across India. Well, some in more than others !!
Setting a precedent for lawyers of such bent of mind is paramount.
If obstructing the course of justice in such a delicate matter does not amount to the most egregious form of professional misconduct, I do not know what does, as a member of the Bar?
Let’s give these thugs in robes what they deserve.
