Conflict Within States And Justice

Relations between sectors of society fluctuate between poles of conflict and cooperation which are the structural and dynamic elements for creating tendencies in both directions such as conflict and cooperation. The lack of a strong central authority, the variety of political cultures and the huge sum of disparities of wealth in a country are among the most evident reasons for rise of a conflict. It is truism to say that states system is inherently competitive in nature. When organs within the state seek to preserve and increase their power and status relative to each other, rather then cooperate and coexist they turn up ending with conflicts. Many conflicts are therefore rooted in the states never ending environment.

Just like states, when rivals or competitor in a country obtains power than one’s principal competitor, the rival feels less secure and seeks some corresponding advantage. The democratic norms permit these conflicts to take place because the developmental tendencies are based on these conflicts as they give rise to competition and bringing out better results then the others.

These conflicts can be resolved by judicial methods because it has certain advantages over any diplomatic method. One of the most significant advantages is that with this method the conflict is almost entirely out of hand of disputing parties thus avoiding prestige problem that might impede a resolution. Freedom of judiciary is as important as is the survival of a sovereign state. In order to sort out the present turmoil which is working towards the worst fact of disintegration can only turn Pakistan back on the track with an independent free judiciary. As was said by Winston Churchill, at the time when the world war two began: is justice served in the courts of Britain, if yes nothing can make us lose the war.
