First of all social ostracization should not be justified or rationalized at all. Nobody could predict the social ostracization would have occurred this way.
Second you are using a very wrong argument to justify social ostracization. The school should have received her as a hero. Instead she had to bounce around other schools.
We are not in Nikam's shoes to call him a nikamma while as a prosecutor he might be trying all options to make sure that Kasab gets death sentence. If a 9-year old can give evidence pointing out how heinous Kasab was and adds to the body of knowledge that ensures his death sentence, then yes it must be used.
As it is, media white washed Kasab's role and while his trial was underway, several urban naxals were circulating a campaign to "save kasab". The terrorists came prepared to tie the heinous crime on "Hindu terrorists" and the then pusillanimous government with effete shivraj patil was ready to indulge.
A 9-year old hero and a survivor of the terrorist attack gets socially ostracized and only now the media wakes up (after 10 years). Even now media and its political cohorts do daily rudaali on how Kasab was just a tool in the hands of the larger "terrorism" which has "no religion". Wasn't it Darkha Butt's coverage which gave further directions to the terrorists on countering the counter-terror ops? What happened to her? She got Padma Shri.
And another thing is late Tukaram Omble was an Asst Sub Inspector but all was armed with is a lathi.
What kind of a force cannot issue 9mm pistol to sub-inspector rank officers?
And who stopped the CM/HM of Mah & PM/HM of India to properly train & arm the police forces appropriately?
