The Oxford dictionary describes Zoolum as oppression.
In India today it carries a wider connotation. We understand it as denial of legitimate rights of individuals, suppression of any voice raised claiming a rightful place in the society, cruelty bordering on the extreme, oppression of the weak by the strong, delays and corruption in making avilable rightful dues, forceful deprivation of basic nessecities of life especially by the minions of the government excercising unlawful authority over a weak and helpless populace.
Legalities, dogma and fine words can never be a cover for Zoolum.
