Should political background be a means for you to escape justice?

One must ask themselves the question, why do we have law?

Common sense would suggest that we have laws or else there would be chaos all over the world.

As religion is declining, morals and values are becoming less in people , especially in the west, however, only the laws and its consequences prevent people from a certain action.

Most of the laws are obeyed and if not then the perpetrator crossing the lines should be facing some punishment to teach the lesson of right and wrong.

Unfortunately it saddens me to see that even the top people of society who are an asset to people such as doctors, teachers and so on suffer injustice, never mind the poor man.

An employee of a cardiology institute in Kashmir was injured badly and beaten after visitors to the institute were told by him that they must wait to see a cardiologist until the time for visitors starts. However they forced themselves in ending up in a scuffle beating the government employee, breaking the nose bone and injuring him badly.

However the  “Police is also not taking any action as Sheikh Khalid has a strong political background”.

Where is the justice? the Police who are meant to be a law enforcing rule and should be protecting the citizens came to this conclusion.

The Quran, the sacred scripture of Islam, considers justice to be a supreme virtue.  It is a basic objective of Islam to the degree that it stands next in order of priority to belief in God’s exclusive right to worship (Tawheed) and the truth of Muhammad’s prophethood.  God declares in the Quran:

“God commands justice and fair dealing…” (Quran 16:90)

And in another passage:

“O you who believe, be upright for God, and (be) bearers of witness with justice!…” (Quran 5:8)

Therefore, one may conclude that justice is an obligation of Islam and injustice is forbidden.  The centrality of justice to the Quranic value system is displayed by the following verse:

“We sent Our Messengers with clear signs and sent down with them the Book and the Measure in order to establish justice among the people…” (Quran 57:25)

The country established on the foundation of  “There is no god but Allah” has its justice system run on , money, power , greed , bribery and similar loopholes to escape the law.

We should at least have the decency to resolve the situation on our own through moral values such as a simple apology, which takes the effort of moving the lips and saying ” Sorry”.
