Bhubaneswar: Hon’ble Mrs. Justice Gyan Sudha Misra, Judge, Supreme Court of India delivered a seminar lecture on ‘Social Justice: Issues & Challenges’ at KIIT Law School on 22nd September 2012. “Education and character building is the only solution to social inequality and other social problems. One person cannot change the community, all have to be aware”, she said in her talk.
A healthy society can be set up only after eradication of all discriminations and inequalities, she stressed. Elaborating on different hurdles on the way to social justice, she said, social justice cannot be achieved only by legislation. In spite of various provisions of social justice in the Constitution, there is a lot of discrimination, she stated, adding that it is society’s responsibility to realize the dream of social justice as enshrined in our Constitution. Parents have a responsibility to mould the thought process of the children from the very beginning, she explained, elaborating that right type of education will go a long way in achieving social justice.
