‘Rang De Basanti’ in action

What happens when people take law unto their hands? What happens when citizens believe they are better at doling out punishments than the state? What happens when responsible citizens believe they have a right to choose what laws they will abide by and what they will violate?

Why do I think the example set by ‘Rang De Basanti’ is a bad one?

Here’s an incident, in which the infuriated mob take on a thief, punishing him. What’s the next step for India? People taking up a gun and killing a minister because they believe he is corrupt?
