The Relevance of Rawlsian Justice in India

Author(s) Dr Aman Mishra
Country India
Abstract Rawls defines justice as fairness, equality, and social justice. According to philosopher John Rawls, justice should be founded on fairness and equality, not what individuals believe or do. Rawlsian justice is crucial in India because rank, poverty, and inequality have produced unequal treatment. Original circumstance and veil of ignorance are key to Rawlsian justice. The initial idea was that individuals may not realize their social standing, class, or other distinguishing features. They would choose moral norms that benefit everyone. The wall of ignorance suggests individuals should judge fairness without understanding their experiences. This allows them determine what's best for everyone. Rawlsian justice can heal India's poverty, inequality, and bigotry. Laws that make sure everyone gets the same education and job opportunities could end racism and poverty. Scheduled Caste and Tribe rules might make people less prejudiced. India needs to make its society open, fair, and respectful of people's rights. Fairness laws based on Rawls might let this happen. Everyone can achieve and be happy in India if society is fair and equitable.
Keywords Rawlsian justice, India, social justice, equality, fairness.
