There is a reason why the police force and judiciary is not under one body. If a police officer arrests you on false evidence, you can challenge it in the court. Imagine this - the police officer who arrested you turns out to be the judge deciding your case. Janlokpal believes that it will be able to dole out justice efficiently this way. If efficiency is the primary objective, then dictatorships happen to be the most effective.
Anyone in the right frame of mind would reject the Janlokpal Bill. It may be wiser to tolerate corruption in this country than have this Janlokpal. Using an innocent man who reminds us of Mahatma Gandhi as the mascot, these activists are pushing an autocratic bill into Indian democracy which portends to demolish all its cherished institutions.
It is clear that these activists do not have respect for the legal procedures; they do not believe that a suspect has certain rights; and they do not have the patience to go through the rigor of a judicial system. They want to bypass all the prescribed procedures to convict a corrupt official immediately, without giving the suspect the due legal recourse - looks like they are out to take some kind of revenge by punishing all the office holders in country. They want to create a utopia where ‘perfect justice’ is doled out in five minutes like in a fast-food restaurant.
As a step one, let’s debate.
