Ok now I will admit that i have made a similar thread before ( the link to which is provided towards the end of this post) but there are certain things that still bug me a lot regarding our beloved HP world & weren't included in the previous thread , so i thought of making this one ( Twila & Jolly did suggest it in the previous thread itself when the discussion there went off-track but anyways better late than never )...please go through the following :-
1.I find the whole Judiciary System in the HP world , a bit of a joke really.. if u think about it, there isn't any need for a trial wherein they ask questions to the convicted & base the judgement upon answers & findings like us muggles..i mean in a world where there are things like "Truth telling potion", "Occlumency or Legelimency" , "Pansive to witness memories of the event" & what not, is it really THAT difficult to uncover the truth ????!!!... take the convicted death eaters after Voldy's first fall for example, some made an excuse that they were under the imperious curse & escaped Azkaban, how on earth was that even made possible?.. is it really THAT difficult for the magical folks to tell the truth from lies?..another example would be Harry's trial in OoTP !..
..i find it comical that even Dumbledore had to enter the trial with witnesses & all.. it actually should have been just a matter of seconds.. one more example would be, Serius Black's truth by the end of third book.. Dumbledore said that words of three thirteen year old students wouldnt be enough to convince anyone..again a poor excuse..this matter too could have been laid to rest sooner than later..
2.One more thing that I never understood is how come Dumbledore appointed a fraud like Lockhart as the Defence Against the Dark Arts teacher for his students ?..
.. again, it will be a poor excuse to say that Dumbledore wasnt able to find a teacher for this position so he hired a fraud
or Dumbledore wasnt aware of Lockhart's fraudulent activities bcoz if that is the case(which is highly unlikely since Dumbledore has a Knack to see through a person like an x-ray vision & it isnt easy to fool Dumbledore, Tom Riddle at Hogwarts is the best example to support this argument) then it means Dumbledore as Headmaster failed to do his research before hiring the fraud ..
3.Another major loophole was the Time-Turner which JKR herself admitted to, so it can be excused, but only upto certain extent.. she said that she got rid of time turners step by step & finally destroyed all of them in 5th book..but what about the events that took place before OoTP.. the time turners were very much present then & could have been used for various purposes..
4.Last but not the least, its time for my FRUSTRATION WITH DUMBLEDORE
( link- http://www.india-forums.com/forum_posts.asp?TID=4009345
).. why did he leave the unnecessary codes & puzzles for the three kids ??!!.. and i am strictly talking about Hallows & not Horcruxes..Dumbledore already told Harry everything he knew about Horcruxes but he hid the information about Hallows (& he knew EVERYTHING about Hallows)..he left it for Hermoine to decode the unnecessary puzzle who herself wasnt sure about it..Dumbledore's excuse was that "he feared that Harry's hot head might dominate his pure heart" but then if that is the case then y leave the unnecessary puzzles at all??..these puzzles were really more time consuming & distracting for the three teenagers who were fighting to save the world.. so far, the only justification put forth by supporters of Dumbledore is that he wanted Harry to prove his worth like always, he wanted Harry to live up to his title of Chosen one, which according me is a really really poor excuse..Harry had already proved his worth & loyalty on countless occasions & no more proving was required,it was the time to assist the three kids every which way possible & not the time for taking unnecessary tests..moreover,lets not forget that while the leading trio were heavily invested in saving the world at the age of just 17, Dumbledore at that age or around that age was obsessed with Deathly Hallows, so what right did he have to test the poor kids who had already proved their worth & loyalty countless times?
Now i would like to know the opinions of the fellow Potterheads regarding the same..if you want to present a counter argument to my opinions or add something more, i would very much appreciate it, Thank You !..
