Law and Law Enforcement

Law and Law Enforcement are dependable on each other. According to me - A law must accommodate with the time, should be manageable, beneficial for the maximum, convenient to be understood and which is agreed to our conscience. Let’s see where India stands in law and law enforcement.
In India whether we look at the past or the present we will find out that Indians have a craze of making maximum laws which are followed irrelevantly. These laws don’t range with the time nor are they such that can help law enforcement. UN recommends approximately a minimum of about 222 police officers per 100,000 people. India has just 130. Our respected Democratic Secular representatives have the budget for religious subsidies but not for raising the number and quality of law enforcement. We need laws that could make a fear among the criminal minds that they can never think of doing the crime. Those who think capital punishment should be banned from India and the NHRC; I want to ask them do they take the responsibility of providing us a safe environment. NHRC is made up for humans not for these threats of the society. And why only just hanging we need to give them as rigorous punishment as possible because these inhumans are without any feelings, they would not have any difficulty in facing punishment. It’s high time now. We need to give a perfect reply to those merciless.
But it’s totally unfair to blame only the law and law enforcement. It’s not only the responsibility of the police to safeguard our society but we ourselves are also responsible for it. Police and judiciary needs cooperation from us. But we all don’t want to even talk to police, we can bare crimes but fear to report it, we fear to go to courts even as a witness because it could affect our self proclaimed reputation. I remember a quote during Nazi Germany- “When the Nazis came for the communists, I remained silent; I was not a communist. When they locked up the social democrats, I remained silent; I was not a social democrat. When they came for the trade unionists, I did not speak out; I was not a trade unionist. When they came for the Jews, I remained silent; I wasn't a Jew. When they came for me, there was no one left to speak out.” So if you don’t speak up for others, the next victim could be you yourself.
