If 90% are violating a law, is the law wrong?

“The judiciary, the Election Commission and the president are all apolitical, non-partisan institutions that provide solidity, credibility and stability to our democracy. The three, with media on the side, also provide institutional strength when there is a weak government and a check on authoritarian tendencies if there is one with a brute majority. So why this rising anger with all of these? And why so much angry dismissal and confrontationist posturing from what was usually the most liberal section of our politicians?” asks Shekhar Gupta in today’s Indian Express.
