A large number of people will gather at Jantar Mantar on August 8 to protest against British laws. The day has been chosen as the day marks the 79th anniversary of the Quit India Movement, to demand the removal of British laws and enactment of laws like those of the US, France, and Singapore.
People are going to initiate a new movement to boycott the 222 laws made during the British era. The event has been organized by Bharatiya Janata Party leader and lawyer by profession Ashwini Upadhyay. He said, “To abolish the laws made in the British era, we will burn the Holi of all English laws with the public. We have called upon people in large numbers to come to Delhi and reach Jantar Mantar.
Describing this movement, he said that just as Mahatma Gandhi gave the slogan of Quit British India to the public in 1942, similarly we are also giving the slogan of black English laws, Quit India. Years have passed for the British but these laws are still imposed on us. Whereas due to these laws neither Naxalism is being stopped nor Maoism, nor fundamentalism.
Because of these laws, be it the Commonwealth scam of 70 thousand crores or the 2G scam of 1 lakh 76 thousand crores, the corrupt people are roaming outside. Many of the existing laws are encouraging criminals and paving their way to Parliament and Vidhan Sabha.
Upadhyay told that after the revolution of 1857, the Indian Penal Code was enacted in 1860 and the Police Act in 1861 to suppress and intimidate the people. Due to these lousy black laws made by the British, atrocities continued on people in West Bengal, murders continued, people’s houses were burnt but the police did nothing. The result of this law is that separatists in Kashmir were giving a voice through loudspeakers to leave Kashmir, but the police did nothing. Had the police acted at that time, there would have been no migration from Kashmir.
Upadhyay says that due to the law of the British era, it takes years to come to the verdict of cases and people keep looking for justice. By changing the law, cases will be decided quickly, and if there is a case against any leader, then that too will be decided soon.
The BJP leader says that there should be laws in India like America, France, and Singapore, in which decisions are taken quickly, people get justice soon and they should not have to go to government departments. If there is a strict law, then many evils of society including profiteering, bribery, human trafficking will end. This law has been made so that the looting system should continue. The government should make new laws in the country soon after studying the laws of America, France, and Singapore. If the government wants, all these laws can be changed in just six months.
This movement will initiate the demand for Equality in Education law, Uniform Civil code, Intrusion Control law, Religious Conversion control law, and Population Control law.
