The Draconian Legislation of SC/ST (Prevention of Atrocities) Act 1989.

Abstract


This paper aims to examine the provisions of the SC/ST (Prevention of Atrocities) Act 1989 vis-à-vis Fundamental Rights enshrined in the Constitution of India in light of the controversial parliamentary amendment overturning the ruling of the Hon’ble Supreme Court of India diluting the Act. The paper further points out the blatant abuse of provisions under the Act and the arbitrariness of the amendment carried by the Parliament with utter disregard to the repercussions and the destruction of the sanctity of the Constitution of India along with undermining the independence of the judiciary for the sake of appeasement of the minority.
