The Idea of Social Justice

Dr Arvinder Singh


Social justice is the essential virtue of the civilized society. It lays down the foundation of liberal, egalitarian and democratic socio-political and economic order. It seeks to promote societal conditions in which all people, equal in dignity, enjoy proportionally equal access to participation in the social, economic, cultural, civil and political life of society. It emanates from the people’s will to have a harmonious and equitable social life. Social discriminations, gender inequalities, economic exploitation and violation of human rights and human dignity go against the spirit of the social justice. Social justice presupposes the elimination of class and caste based discriminations, promotion of social solidarity and protection of human dignity and interests of weaker sections of society.
