Q: Write ten lines on racial discrimination.

Discrimination means ‘distinction’. It means to observe the difference on some basis. The word ‘racial’ is from ‘race’, which means the division of human beings on the basis of color. In this way ‘racial discrimination’ is a political term which means considering differences on the basis of the color of the skin. In the U.S.A. the difference on the basis of the colors of the skin was in practice, particularly in the Southern States.

Q: What are the measures you can take to ensure justice with all sections of society?

If the machinery of the government is impartial, all the sections of the Society can enjoy justice and peace. When everyone gets his rights without trouble or delay, there will be peace in the society. Most of the criminals are not born criminals. They are, in fact, reactionaries. If they get their rights on the basis of merit, there will be no social unrest. Justice can only be maintained by marinating equality among the people. So equality is the key thing that ensures justice to the whole Society.
