The Need For Tribal Justice

Tribal justice refers to the system of dispensing justice to the tribal group. On many occasions, we can see that tribal people are often met out injustice as they belong to a class of lesser privileged people. However, owing to the laws of equality, which states that all men are equal in the eyes of law, it is absolutely mandatory that tribal justice be met out to these underprivileged people as well. There is no reason to be unjust to such people purely on the basis of caste or creed. Hence, there are several tribal courts which can help in dispensing justice in such cases as they make sure that the tribal cases are dealt with equality between the tribal and non tribal people.

There is nothing more inhuman than making unfair calls and judgment with such people whose only fault is the fact that they belong to a tribal caste. Hence, we must applaud the services of tribal courts.
