Come elections and such provocative statements are common levelling charges and counter-charges to establish their stand in the eyes of public to create a vote bank.
The Apex Court has ordered for taking action on the provocative statements on an Public Interest Litigation (PIL). It is crime to give statements on the basis of caste, religion, race, community, language which divides us and hysterical spreading statements. Even the social media has been used as a tool for the purpose.
Despite all this, police, courts are not in a position to stop this non-sense. Will the new suggestions and new system be in a position to help in stopping this?
It has become ritual among the politicians to adopt this attitude to play with the sentiments of people to disturb the system by creating a violent atmosphere. There are number of such faces that have left an impact on public and law makers should not waste time, when there is dire need to formulate new laws but at the same time, strong political will is needed.
Those who support such provocative speeches should also be made a part of crime and it is responsibility of the administration besides raising voice against it by democratic institutions and intellectuals as well, so that cobweb of law may be made which may also catch hold of big flies.
