    Re: Injustice is happening for me

    Context would be helpful. It is likely that you mean "An injustice is happening to me".

    Would the injustice be in the speaker's favour if 'to' was replaced with 'for', which was used in the OP's original sentence?

    Chakradhar, your clicking on the 'Thank' button has already obviated the need for your new post saying 'Thanks'.

    That sentence would be most unnatural.
