Inspector Sharma-India salutes you

Its a sad day for the nation as it bids the final farewell to Delhi police inspector Mohan Chand Sharma. He died on Friday in an encounter with the terrorists who were involved in the Delhi bomb blasts. The nation could've rejoiced today with the successful operation of killing 2 terrorists and nabbing one, if not for the painful loss of this brave soul. He was the first one to enter the building where the terrorists were said to be hiding. Just think of the courage displayed by this man in the hour of need. As he knocked on the door, he heard some commotion going on inside. So he went inside through another door and was shot at. His team members swung into action after this and it was all over in the blink of an eye. Though he was taken to the hospital, Sharma succumbed to his injuries soon. He was a tough cop who has taken part in many successful encounters and brought laurels to the Delhi police force, but sadly this one proved his last.

The terrorists who were killed were not mere gun-totting puppets. Atiq alias Bashir, one of the dead, is said to be the 'mastermind' behind last week's Delhi blasts. They were traced with the help of valuable intelligence inputs provided by Gujarat police. This is a much needed shot in the arm for the police force in India. They've been bearing the brunt of the blame game that heats up after every other blast in town. Officers like Sharmaji proves that the police force is not 100% corrupted afterall. Men like him are prepared to lay down their lives for the sake of the country in true police spirit. One thing I wonder is why these men were not given bullet proof vests, even when it was known that they were going for a high-risk encounter. I really doubt whether they have enough stock(or no stock at all?) of such safety equipments.

An issue that crops up related to yesterday's happenings is the question of human rights. If not for the policeman's death, we would've heard a huge outcry over the gunning down of the terrorists. Self-proclaimed human rights activists of the ilk of Arundathi Roy would be releasing statements such as "Its a blatant violation of human rights. In Pakistan, they won't shoot terrorists like this. But in Delhi, there's no value for the life of a terrorist. So the only solution is giving Delhi independence or gifting it to Pakistan". This hipocrisy in the name of human rights been going on for too long. The shining example being the parliament attack case in which many of our security personnel laid down their lives. But, in the end we had tears being shed for the convicted terrorist Afazal Guru. Petitions containing mercy pleas were flying around thick and fast. We had stories on his helpless family whereas the kith and kin of those who died defending our nation were conviniently forgotten. Politicians made sure that he'll continue to live luxuriously in the prison rather than be sent to the gallows. I really wish atleast the one terrorist whom they caught yesterday be blasted off the face of the earth after extracting all possible information from him. To hell with the idea of fair trail for a terrorist.

Lets all salute the brave man who died for all of us. Hope this incident serves as the starting point for India's fight against terrorism. The Government should get its act together with stringent laws and swift actions in this regard. Else, the soul of martyrs like Sharmaji would never forgive us.

PS-Home minister Shivraj Patil can now breath easy. Last week during the Delhi bomb blasts, we saw him changing his dress 3 times in a timespan of 1 hour. His fashion show had kicked up such a storm that at one point he was thinking of shedding his clothes forever and join the Digambaras of Jainism. Now that one of the main brains behind the attack is dead, he can breath easy for the time being. To celebrate this sudden turn of events, he is reported to have ordered for 100 new suits to be worn in the next 2 days.

Priya Joyce said...

yes it was a great sacrifice for the nation I surely salute that person. Jai Hind

but here I wud say just because they kill a lot of people why should we kill them are we the same as them.
should we not keep up our humanity and human values even if they have lost it.
It is difficult to think like this but once u think like this its something wrong really.

Richa said...

We all r proud of shramaji as much and mey his soul rest in peace and gives others the courage to fight against the wrong!!

@priya
do u really believe in that human rights rhetoric? Isn't it plain acting on the part of those who put out that theory of forgiving the attackers? Tell me, whats the use in having people like this alive in the society? what goodness does they contribute? Do u think that if they are spared, they'll mend their ways and become champions of peace? Or should we let them free so that they could do more damage? forgiving is good, but we should think on whom we r forgiving

Priya Joyce said...

hey praveen good points raised
out there.
I never said we should spere them I just want them to go thru the normal legal procedures.
then again forgiving is very difficult and those who conquer that difficulty is actually the master of all.
why do we always thing of taking the easier paths
then again who said I don't feel anger wen such things happen i also am a human na
but wen I think from my mind and go and see the both sides then I feel we never know and understand such people do u remember the story of the film maachis.....who made them terrorists the police only na.
human rights i believe in tat.
if I forgive someone doesn't mean I hav never felt the anger.
and I am happy that u raised such points which I could clear and express my views on.

Priya Joyce said...

hey sorry for wrong typos forgimme can u?

Praveen said...

@priya
I understand the way you are thinking about this whole issue. Its indeed a noble deed to forgive.
wtever the circumstances, how can anyone justify the killing of innocent people including kids. Is this they way they should retaliate for the bad things done to them(if ever such a thing happened)
lastly, about human rights..agreed..
but isn't it only for humans?

ps- y u saying forgive and all..we all r frends here just expressing our views and thr's no need for such formalities among us..cheers:)

Priya Joyce said...

ye I understand u now no more consider them humans. they do things like tat na.
after all fighting for God for land for political seat all this will end one day. but until tat feeling comes it'll be too late.
i am sure these people will go thru a very bad period a period of regret and then wat? nothing can't be done na.

descrying the shadows said...

@ priya ... a period of regret ????

he he ... he he i appreciate your views .. but i dis agree when u say there is no difference .. there is .. the difference lies in the reason the motto behind the act of killing dear ... and about maachis .. there is exploitation in every thing and every system .. even if we did take your way .. it will be exploited cause our law and order ain't impeccable ... its nt a simple issue .. u need to consider aspects other than humanity ... which btw is forgotten in this world ...
should it never be remembered and practiced again ?? well i don't say that .. i would love that .. but is it possible really .. practically is it ???
debate with me on this in form of a post dear .. would love it

Priya Joyce said...

@describing TS:)

hey Sid a good argument there!!
hey I don't say tat they r rite.
They are very very rong but if u think a li'l emotionally about wats happening these days.... the terrorists, the serial bombings, the corruption, the communal riots, the nuke deal arguments, the cash for vote scam, the Singur episode, the flood and many more... huh!
Got tired of this life actually.
