Every citizen of this nation, directly or indirectly, willingly or unwillingly have been prodded to be a part of the ongoing furore: ‘Beef Terrorsim!’ I would definitely not hesitate to tag it terrorism. I infact regret that my vocabulary couldn’t provide me a better word to describe the barbarianism.
Scores of people, irrespective of religion and caste have been a victim of this atrocious and unabashed act being carried out by some culturally and religiously ignorant brutes. They are so falsely labouring under the delusion that they are doing justice to their religion by lynching individuals who consume beef. They are in fact degrading our religion and are true insult to the nation. I do not know for sure whether they are a bunch of ignorants or people being driven by some political agenda. The latter may be even more malicious to the nation.
In many of the cases where poeple were lynched or physically assaulted after being accused of having possessed or consumed beef, it was proved that they neither possessed nor consumed beef. But that’s not important. Even if we consider that they either possessed or consumed beef, who on Earth are these self-declared moral police squads to take somebody to task? What rights have they got to investigate somebody? Do they own the cows? Do they by any chance represent our nation? This is a mere attention seeking gimmick.
Having promised the citizens ACHHE DIN, not taking a strong stand against this mob lynching reflects a very suspicious and malicious image of the PM. It’s truly poignant that even after so many appalling incidents and deaths, the murderers roam scot free. Does this reveal their surreptitious political support? The police too are turning a blind eye to this. All that they have done so far are a few apparent arrests and the public too tend to forget this soon. I strongly OPINE that those arrests are mere eye-washes.
All these happen because, the silent majority always tends to remain silent. It’s because of this silence that such groups assume that they are unquestionable. Until and unless the silent majority raises its voice against these tiny jobless groups who are in pursuit of some attention, they will keep doing all these hideous gimmicks, for that’s the only thing that they are fit for.
June 28, the tables turned. When a film maker started a campaign christened ‘Not In My Name’. Myriad of people got down on streets in various cities of India, expressing their wrath over these ignorant mobs and sending out a strong message to the mobs and the government, that the insanity is reaching its brink. This indirectly was an ultimatum, that the nation will not tolerate this anymore. An unequivocal message has been sent and if any such incident occurs, it’s our responsibility to make sure that such mobs reach an extinction in this nation. It’s a matter of self respect of our country.
Your silence on dire matters like this, may cost an innocent individual his/her life. Raise your voice, and be a part of the solution. Do not let a small group of ignorants define our nation.
