Prove your charge

“Presumption of Innocence” is a widely accepted doctrine in Justice System applicable in many parts of the world, which says that “A person should be considered as Innocent unless proven Guilty”. The same doctrine also states that it is the duty of the prosecution to collect the evidences to prove his/her charges against the accused and if reasonable doubt remains, then the person must be acquitted. It is also a Human Right under United Nation’s Universal Declaration of Human Rights.

So, if someone accuses you and ask you to prove your innocence, just tell them to refer to this doctrine. 🙂

(P.S. Do you recall a scene from the Bahubali 2: The Conlusion, where Bhallal Dev asks Devsena exactly opposite to the stated theory? That is why she terms it as a barbaric and heinous law. Sometime Bollywood does make sense, oh! wait, it wasn’t a Bollywood movie though 😛 ).

  1. Well said Manyavar Abhay, but in reality, how often does it happen ? At least in Indian Judicial system. I have been trapped by a fraud builder bank nexus and the case is in court since 2011. Though I know and even God Knows that I am innocent, yet, i agonizingly live with a filthy judicial system. I have every proof to prove my innocence, the fraudsters are creating all false stories and circumstances to nail me down.

    1. Manyavar Abhay! Haha.. Achha lagta hai sun ke..😎
      I truly agree with you Rajesh ji, I can understand how the lethargic Indian Judicial System can be agonizingly indifferent to the people’s need. As famous cliché goes, justice delayed is justice denied, our judicial system is a textbook example of this.
      In SC alone, more than 50K cases are pending what to speak of lower Judiciary.
      Though, my writing was on theoretically consoling those who are constantly bashed for the things which they haven’t done and always deemed to prove their innocence.
      I think it touched your raw nerve 😉
