EDITORIAL | Upholding our nation's integrity

FROM THE EDITOR's DESK:

As we celebrate our 72nd Republic Day today, let us not forget that despite all political upheavals and attempts to alter the Indian Constitution, the document that guides our country shall remain our greatest strength and witness.

Over the years, the country has witnessed major changes, new laws being implemented, motives sprung up with an attempt to change the Constitution and the abrogation of Article 370 is one such example.

Whether it was done for the overall welfare of the country or to fulfill someone's political ambitions, it does not change the fact that clauses and provisions were changed, replaced, and removed.

In 1950 when the Constitution came into existence, India became a sovereign nation and we owe our gratitude to all our great leaders who turned dreams into a reality with special reference to the Father of the Constitution, Dr. BR Ambedkar.

Decades later, it is sad to note that rights are being taken for granted, freedom of speech and expression is suppressed, freedom of movement is restricted.

Where are we heading? Are we abiding by the Constitution? Are we free from the chains of autocracy? We seem to be drifting away from the path, journey, and destination envisioned by our forefathers 71 years ago.

But hope prevails. Despite political motives to deviate from the truth and trying to find a way around it, our Constitution still upholds the nation's integrity and will continue to do so in the years to come.
