In this article (link given below) written even before the Army Chief went seeking justice to court, the author has raised some very significant questions. He has also hinted at some conspiracy having been hatched behind the closed doors. All said and done, it must be said that the aggrieved general has so far conducted himself with commendable restraint and dignity. Some eyebrows have been raised against the Army Chief' for his seeking the legal remedy. Why should a soldier's right to seek justice raise hackles? After all, he is going to the highly esteemed and honourable Supreme Court which will only uphold fairness of law. In what way is it demeaning? In fact not seeking such a recourse and lumping injustice would be highly demeaning for any upright soldier.
Corruption having made inroads even in the Armed Forces, some vested interests within OGs and Babus in the South Block may have personal grudge to paint such judicious actions as defiance and arrogance but far from being so, General VK Singh's action is absolutely within his legal and bonafide rights with no trace of defiance or arrogance against the Authority which, he feels, has erred in its judgement.
Even the Government and the President of India seek court's legal opinion to tackle various disputes including those involving Govt officials. Therefore, one hopes that the Government would be well advised to face the honourable Court with open mind welcoming its verdict with magnanimity. If it did so, it would be a message to the world that 'Rule of Law' has relevance and respect in an emerging India - world's largest Democracy which has a chance to become world's 'Best Democracy' too.
Why not raise our voice against corruption and injustice wherever we come across the malaise? May Truth alone prevail - but in corruption ridden Kaliyuga it needs your helping hand!
