#The Legal Journey After Independence
India is going to celebrate its 74th Independence Day on 15th August 2020. Britishers left India divided among 565 Provinces and each Province had its language and culture. The King of every Province had a choice if they want to join Dominion of India or Pakistan. Though, most of the Provinces joined India by signing the Instrument of Accession. However, all the Provinces had the same question “Would they be allowed to practice their own language and culture?”
Struggle for freedom was tough but struggle to unite such a large and diverse Country was treacherous. Britishers had exercised numerous tactics to divide India, one such tactic used by them to divide the country was unfair legislation. Most of such obsolete legislations have been gradually repealed by the Parliament, post independence. On the contrary, there exist many legislations curated by Britishers which helped to uproot various existing devils from the society.
On this special occasion of Independence Day, Lex Repository invites opinion in the form of Article from people to throw light on the various legislations which have been repealed after independence and legislations which contributed towards the progress the Country.
