A demand has been raised by the Muslim organisations that the Government presents the report as it is in front of the Parliament so that a detailed debate can be carried out on it and the world comes to know the result of seventeen long years of investigation. Precisely it can also be assessed as to who is involved in this evil deed and what is his share in it ? It is useless to wait for the action taken report and sheer waste of time. Some of the political parties are also supporting this demand. They also agree that there should be debate on the report and truth should come out in front of the world. In the same way it is also said that it is not right that the Government should censor any part of the report with the excuse that it might not be good from perspective of peace and that part comes under internal secret. But in the meantime Delhi High Court’s judgement regarding the abolishing of Article377 which was pending since last eight years, has come. The announcement of this verdict made the whole country mad with glee. The media is publicising it at such a large scale as if it has gained the happiness of the whole world and as if this was the most important and sensitive issue of the country. It seems as if it has attracted everyone’s attention towards it. Rest all the issues have taken a back seat. It is being told that the Central Government is also paying attention to it. The issue of judgement at this time is worth pondering, it has suppressed all the other important issues.
