Fasting is one way of democratic protestAnswered by saranathan Narasimhan, 30 Jul '12 04:10 pm
Noncooperation and fasting are method of protest preached by Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi followed by the Congress and the maker of our constitution Dr. Ambedkar have an idea to that effect. So peaceful fasting is not unconstitutional for public cause. At present you can ventilate grievances of public cause under Public Interest Litigation before High court and Supreme court too.Answered by lalit mahata, 30 Jul '12 08:01 am
Dr. Ambedkar's second, and more important, warning in the present context related to the methods to achieve social and economic objectives. He urged the people to abandon bloody as well as coercive methods to bring about change. This means abandoning methods of civil disobedience, non-cooperation, coercive forms of satyagraha and fast. Referring to the use of these methods during the British period, Dr. Ambedkar observed: When there was no way left for the constitutional methods for achieving economic and social objectives, there was a great deal of justification for unconstitutional methods. But using them since that period, in his view, was nothing less than the Grammar of Anarchy. He advocated that the sooner they are abandoned, the better for us as a nation.Answered by Mrinalendra Banerjee, 30 Jul '12 07:09 am
