Who has really insulted our national flag? Explains Justice Katju

Who has really insulted our national flag ?

By Justice Markandey Katju

A great deal of hue and cry is being raised by some people about farmers insulting the Indian national flag.

But has it not been insulted a hundred times more by those who have polarised our society on communal and caste lines, and have incited communal and caste hatred and violence, for getting votes and winning elections ?

Has it not been insulted a hundred times more by those who got 5000 Sikhs brutally murdered in 1984, and 2000 Gujarati Muslims in 2002 ?

Has it not been insulted a hundred times more by those who have looted the country ?

Has it not been insulted a hundred times more by those who by their deeds have flagrantly flouted the Indian Constitution and torn it to pieces ( see my article ‘ Why I will not celebrate Republic Day ’ published in hastakshepnews.com )?

Has it not been insulted a hundred times more by those judges who having taken an oath to uphold the Constitution, and who are called the protectors of the rights of the people, turn a blind eye to the suppression of liberty, freedom of speech, and other fundamental rights by the executive ( see my articles ‘ All the times the Supreme Court turned a Nelson’s eye to injustice ‘, and ‘ The Ayodhya verdict is based on a strange feat of logic ‘ ) ?

Has it not been insulted a hundred times more by our political leaders whose policies have resulted in massive unemployment, appalling level of child malnourishment ( see Global Hunger Index ), over 3.5 lac farmers suicides, and almost total lack of proper healthcare and good education for the masses ?

So who has really insulted our national flag ?
