Social Justice in India

The constitution of our country has opened several gates for the delivery of social justice and making of provisions that are beneficial to the minorities. Government with the idea of empowering the citizen has made several provisions including reservation of the minorities in the public sector jobs and educational institutions. Considering that education plays a vital role in the betterment of the society the minorities are also aided for opening their own educational institutions. It is important to improve the idea of social justice because if we don’t get over the demons of caste, creed, sex and religion we’ll never be able to become a developed nation. It is crucial for the prosperity and happiness of the citizens.

Social Justice India

It is commendable that how the new government is trying to empower the people by grooming skills and promoting the work in the unorganized sector and when they say that the real power of India lies in its villages. There is a great difference when everyone is treated equally and when equals are treated equally and social justice happens when the people who stand on the same footing are treated in the same manner, or otherwise the richer will carry on being richer and the poor will always remain poor. It is also necessary to take care of the cultural barriers of the society otherwise it might lead to miscarriage of social justice.
