Today, proponents of diametrically opposed visions of society, secular and religious, march under the banner of social justice. As desirable social and political goals are depicted in starkly different forms, labels like “good” and “evil” become interchangeable and the meaning of social justice becomes obscured. As it has been for millennia, the concept of social justice is now used as a rationale for maintaining the status quo, promoting far-reaching social reforms, and justifying revolutionary action that have broad implications for social scientists investigating the origins, structures, and consequences of justice in human affairs. Social Justice is a revolutionary concept which provides meaning and significance to life and makes the rule of law dynamic. When Society seeks to meet the challenge of socio-economic inequality by its legislation and with the assistance of the rule of Law; it seeks to achieve economic Justice without any violent conflict. The Idea of welfare state is that the claims of social Justice must be treated as cardinal and paramount.
