India is a country suffers from lack of legal education and awareness among masses, coupled with a corrupt police force & bureaucracy, incompetent/manipulative lawyers as well as acute structural challenges in the judicial institution. As a result of these circumstances, the world is facing a very unique modern day human rights crisis of epic proportion. Various quotes have been coined over the years in context of the English law (a colonial legislative and judicial system followed by Republic of India) such as:
- Justice delayed is justice denied.
- Injustice anywhere is threat to justice everywhere.
- It is better that ten guilty persons escape than that one innocent suffer.
In spite of the above, India has several under-trials imprisoned without bail and several innocents trapped in false cases and malicious prosecutions. Here are case pendency statistics updated daily by Government of India. There are approximately 34 Million cases pending in Indian Judiciary, which has more than 100 million (10 crore) litigants in limbo any where from 2 years to 25 years; depending on the type of litigation. To call it a national epidemic for India would be generous, because it has no longer remained India’s national problem. The judicial delays and extortion rackets as a result of malicious prosecutions in India have been affecting long Non-Resident Indians as well as Foreign Nationals living outside India.
