The debate over justice and its deliverance is as old as human history. Among the standards to observe the social structure of any society, its justice system is one of indispensable phenomenon. Historically,

Ancient societies of even 400 BC were aware about the concept among the binding forces of their societies with the code subject of deliverance of justice. The book, “Republic written by Plato”, reflects the story about the punishment of Socrates to indicate the supremacy of law. To facilitate, provide and develop the infrastructure for quick and cheap justice to its inhabitants is one of the essential function and duty of any democratic state. The efficiency and accuracy of deliverance in of justice leads to a reduction in panic among the society and assures the progress of the social structure. Conditions of law and order are also deeply rooted in the deliverance of justice as many thinkers have enunciated, like John Locke, Thomas Hobbes, Thomas Jefferson, Roger William and others.

Turning towards our society, till now our system as a whole seems to be failing to provide the basic need of justice to its masses and the government has failed to protect the fundamental rights of the public because of unscrupulous behaviour and rapacious exploitation of national assets.

The Judiciary - as one of the most important and primary pillars of a state - has been crossing its moral and constitutional boundaries and as lower and upper judiciary have entangled themselves in corruption for many decades. Corruption is another main hindrance that has been impeding our country’s development since its emergence. Delay in justice ignites extra judicial decisions in the Jirga and Panchayat system, and extra judicial killings aggravate the law and order situation.

This system is providing opportunities by igniting criminal and anti-state groups like the Chotu gang, TTP and much more, that misuse the loopholes of our system and motivate others to join them.

According to many political philosophers, particularly John Locke, it is the basic and indispensable need of individuals to enjoy their fundamental rights by hook or by crook and state is a body that is set up to protect the rights and eradicate barriers in this way. He further opines that if the government fails to provide and protect the rights then public must overthrow the government replacing new with the guarantee of the rights’ protection. But in Pakistan, not only the government’s unscrupulous behavior but a weak judicial system allows people to adopt the short cut to enjoy the rights which lead individuals to organise themselves in militant groups.

Military campaigns or police actions against regional gangs are temporary solutions to crush these gangs but what are the driving forces and reasons as well as mental approach behind these gangs’ emergence? To organise themselves on such a massive level against state forces is clear message of disobedience of the justice and law and order system.

Question is not who is corrupt, whether rulers, opposition, lower-class, elite class, bureaucracy, judiciary or any other state institution but question is why till now have law forces and agencies not controlled and handled these non-sate actors? Why is the justice system not able to prove itself as a binding force for society? The only answer of the questions is the national attitude of our public and state departments that is devoid of common sense, work ethic, good governance as well as a national and collective approach about dealing state and public affairs.

Anarchy and restlessness in any society of the world indicates that the justice system and economic system are not making great strides and consequently, terrorism is prevailing globally in all societies of the world whose roots are directly associated with justice and economic systems of the world. So, the world powers are required to address the current scenario of the globe on these basis by ironing out poverty, illiteracy, unemployment and rapacious exploitation of natural resources.

Justice deliverance for the inhabitants of Pakistan has lost its moral and physical existence. Society is not ready to accept the easy providence of justice even after the oft cited slogan of an independent judiciary. The system is unable to protect them from cruelty of rulers, crossing over their legal boundaries and using constitutional authority. In the US and other developed countries, the constitution is used to resolve problems but in our country the situation is totally different particularly in case of the Panama leaks is one recent test case for our judicial system. Judicial reforms in all perspectives are required to fulfill the drawbacks of the system.
