Morality a conundrum, i say!
I thought assault was a criminal offence and i also thought Lord Rama was a just and fair king who never deliberately imposed himself on others. So then why is this stupid party who call themselves Sri Rama Sena imposing themselves on others and attacking girls. In India we have a heritage of non-violence against girls. We have a heritage of respecting the female sex, protecting them and upholding their virue; then why are these right-wing fundamentalist parties doing the exact opposite?
Is Mr. Mutalik so insecure threatened that he goes out and attacks girls who only want some relaxation and enjoy time? He says girls drinking wine is not the culture of India, then Mr. Mutalik what is the culture of India? Let me answer that, India does not have a culture of her own. She has always adapted to the culture of the current times over the thousands of years she has existed. She adapted when the rajputs and Hindus ruled the country, she adapted towards Islam when the Mulsim kings ruled and had a separate culture when Akbar was king, she also adapted to the modern times when the British ruled the country. Freedom and right to live as how each Indian wants, is the culture of India. India never had a culture where rights were imposed on others. The current times dictate that every individual is free to choose how HE/SHE wants to live HIS/HER life. If HE/SHE wants to drink alcohol then HE/SHE has a right to go and drink alcohol. You "Sri Rama Sena Party" have no right to interfere in the lives of others.
Sri Rama Sena Party has also threatened dire consequences if lovers want to celebrate their love on the globally declared and accepted most romantic day of St. Valentines Day. Why have you done that? Is that not the culture of India? Let me tell you that it is. Lord Krishna celebrated his love for Radha. He had a girlfriend. You have named your party after Lord Rama, let me tell you he also had a girlfriend Lady Sita. He too was in love. So Mr. Mutalik don't go about saying its not in the culture of India. Why do you go about shouting that couples cant hang out together? well if they cant then you too cant; you should not be seen in public with your wife and this goes for all the parties including the people in J&K who say guys and girls should not hang out together. I dont understand why these parties want to kill humans so fast!! I fear the day when these parties become popular, the reproduction and propagation of Humans as a species will stop and we will simply die out! Sheesh talk about hypocrites!
These kind of people and parties are mostly looking for their 5 minutes of fame rather than achieving something good and constructive. They are destructive and can only offer destructive criticism rather than doing good for the people. Mr. Mutalik if you havent noticed India is still plagued by POVERTY and ILLITERACY which are REAL SOCIAL PROBLEMS and you should divert your resources towards correcting them rather than trying to stop the propagation of the species. Girls and boys in love is NOT a social problem in fact it is a good thing atleast it will ensure that more children will be born and hopefully children who can accept and celebrate individuality.
To the audience reading this: These parties and people are a black spot on democracy and are dictators worse than Hitler. They are tramping on our fundamental rights as individuals and should be shot dead like any other terrorist. We all stood up when the Mumbai attack took place and i call on everybody to organise another massive movement across the country to put a ban on the Moral Policing. These people have absolutely NO authority in saying how or how not we should live our lives. Let us young people gather and raise our voices against these people. We are the future and how our future turns out is in our hands. The oldies of these countries are becoming senile and now its time for us to rise and revolutionise this country into a model to be followed.
I call on everybody here and reading this to join hands and start a revolution to teach India to celebrate individuality and reinstate every person's, every dog's and every other animal's except the right wing people's fundamental right to live HIS/HER life in a way that HE/SHE wants to live.
I am tired of this moral policing. I'm tired of all the communal disharmony. I'm tired of everybody and anybody rising up and questioning how a person wants to live HIS/HER life.. It makes me think that Indians have become degenerate beasts.
On this blog we talk, talk and talk.. BUT WHAT DO WE DO? will talking and fussing amongst ourselves solve anything? No, its time we did something.. its time we became more proactive and raised our voices. Its time we stood up and tell the people of India to let the past be the past and to change according to the times.
suggest a course of action .. I am game .. these people who distort and twist religion to meet their own ends and justify their acts shud ideally be not allowed to live .. but then i am incapable of doing that .. so make a suggestion .. if feasible I am game
Hope you don't mind.
( Comment on this post, later :-) )
but still if I and some five or ten more speak about it..does that stop it...no...never..this will go on..
effective solution is what I stress on...that's all
yes i too say the same Sri Ram, who is also known as the Maryada Purushottam that means the best man who never crossed limits, is being badnamed and why is his name being used to hide the amoral activities of hitting, assualting women!!
this is real disgusting, in the name of religion, they are doing things, that our religion the Hinduism has never allowed them to do..
okay, u say, its time to do something, lets do it!! as Sid says, I too am game, suggest wat could be done..
@Priya - this actually preceeds the life and death matters in importance as this is a seed to the end of democracy and individualism. If we start moral policing like this and not stop it the only result will be in Talibanisation and a world of repression, hatred and suppression. The Effective solutions as i see it is to let people like Mutalik know that their actions are unwelcome.
@Sid & Ayushi - You ask me to suggest a course of action. Being a strict believer of non-violence the only action i can suggest is movement of the masses. There are probably more teenagers and youngsters in this country than people like Mutalik, we should now raise our voices and protest. After the Mumbai attacks people in every city and all the media channels rose up and shouted at the government for not doing its job properly, lets do something like that again. Lets gather somewhere, preferably Mangalore and let these people know that they are unwelcome and are Hypocrites and force the government at the centre to impede on state jurisdiction and come down heavily on parties such as this so that they know that any kind of extremist movement is unwelcome and will not be tolerated in this country.
This is a kind of terrorism for god's sake.
niway yes, today it reely has become much more that a life and death issue..
And yep, am game too. The other day, I was talking to Tushar and Richa abt wht cd be done. Though we haven't come to any plausible conclusion/solution... And yeah, SJ, you have a good point there.
taking fwd ur idea ... hw many authors in jagruti ?? atleast a 50 odd i would say and each one of us will be knowing 10 mutually exclusive bloggers right ? let each of us gather them and then let them gather somemore like a tree ... totally on digital media .. and then if and wen we have a large number .. all post the exact same thing on their blogs profiles professional networking websites etc ...
social networking and professional networking sites can help voice and highlight our idea... and for the ones de-motivated .. u don need to spend a penny !!
Kamal hai comment maine kiya nad reply is addressed to Ayushi :P
we are 56 auhtors, but all aint active u know and this is a good idea, elaborate some more of it, and lets c how actually we can implement this thing..
we are not looking forward to any kind of violence u know and since we are geographically so dispersed, it wont be easy and practical to gather at Manglore.
raising our voice isnt tht hard a job these days and specially wen we have access to the most powerful media- the internet and also, the media is free, they wont deny us any coverage or support for such causes. all we need is to bring to peoples attention tht we do care, and for tht a proper medium has to be found, blogging is not a solution, Sid's suggestion could be somewat helpful..
Sid's suggestion is actually a good idea but the only people who actually read my blog and i know them are u guys on mission jagruti.. i'm afraid i'm from a commerce background and my friends are not too much on the writing or reading side of things.. Yes the correct medium has to be found..
I dont think there is any real forum in this country which actually listens to the general public; this is something i deeply feel about and want to address..
the problem today cannot be addressed on the micro level.. it has to be macro level.. a level which can support many many people and not only a handful.. Another idea i was thinking about was a protest in the cities where you reside.. if we can come up with a single plan and implement it across india making us the point person in our respective cities then we can gather a crowd in our respective cities and make noise..
i'm also open to more ideas if you can up with.. also please note that they should be within the law and non-violent.
And Richa i'm terribly terribly sorry!!
