Right well I was going to start this post with a disclaimer but .. what the hell .. I am going write what I think, SO what do I say to this NEW fashion statements that are coming left right and centre in our “SHINING and DEVELOPING ” nation , India off course I mean. Every day there is some celebrity or some tom dick and harry who is either getting targeted for saying something the Public DO NOT WANT TO HEAR or for NOT SAYING what the public wants to hear.
End of the day this debate is basically what we want or NOT want to hear, and our hypocrisy has no boundaries , anything to make sure the public attention goes to STUPID or IDIOTIC issues rather than the ones that every INDIAN individual should pay attention to.
Recent melodrama or the fashion statement that is going around is brick bashing of Amir Khan, my view on the whole episode is that the people who are shouting hoarse and asking him to leave the country, making statements how he earns money in India and how his movie PK makes fun of “HINDU” gods and yet was a super hit movie.. right WELL to those people shouting obscenities at Amir Khan, well they are just proving his point, SAD BUT TRUE. Going on about one film what about films like RANG DE BASANTI, What about shows like Satayamev Jayate.. or the Movie Sarfarosh , or is it because Amir in Sarfarosh is bashing a Muslim and making those PRO HINDU patriotic dialogues it is ok .. just because PK is thought to be making fun of HINDU god it suddenly is talked about. – Can anyone see the Pattern of pick and choose ..
All those people where were you when a man was Killed because it was “THOUGHT” he had beef, Many of the people in the mob who killed this man belonged to ONE religion , also I can vouch many of them also EAT MEAT, if not all then at least a handful, they eat MEAT. So HOW is it OK to eat one animal and NOT The other one.
All those people where were you when a young girl was molested on the road of GUWAHATI. ( now I hope the reason for not helping the girl was NOT because she was of one religion)
All those people where were you when a young girl got raped in DELHI.
So what is wrong in saying that Intolerance is growing up IT DEFINITELY IS.
Moreover he says that his wife feels that way, whats wrong JUST BECAUSE HE IS A MUSLIM he is being targeted like that , The statement is actually a STRONG voice because If I have read it correctly ..
Mr. Khan told an audience that his wife, Kiran Rao, had suggested moving from the country.
“That’s a disastrous and very big statement for Kiran to make to me,” Mr. Khan said. “She fears for her child, she fears what this atmosphere around us will be, she feels scared to open the newspapers everyday.”
KIRAN RAO is a HINDU.. so a hindu is not feeling safe in the country , that is much more shameful than a Muslim saying and YET all the people who have gone on bashing Amir khan , have they even considered for ONE SECOND what that statement means. It puts me at SHAME, that a hindu is saying she is not safe , our country is HINDU DOMINATED.. instead like it always happens we are good at deviating from a core point and go on tangents, because we can target a MUSLIM now, yet this whole drama is on the question of TOLERANCE.
HECK I don’t feel SAFE when I come to visit my country, does that mean I am a traitor. I feel scared opening the on-line news papers I read every day to know about my country.
There are Millions of issues that need to be looked at , people don’t have DRINKING WATER in rural india, some have to walk hours to get fresh water (This they have to do EVERYDAY), so the people who are WASTING time and energy on harping over what AMIR KHAN said , PLEASE do something else , pick a WATER BOTTLE to give a drink to person who has to walk every day for WATER.
There are Millions who do not have a ROOF over their head, THINK about them and NOT WHAT AMIR KHAN SAID or DID, spend this rage , time on doing for those who are needy.
There are Millions who are dieing of HUNGER Go and FEED that many people as many tweets or statements you have made over one person’s statement, Imagine the Time that has been wasted over ONE PERSON’s STATEMENT, if only that much time was spent in the good of people maybe JUST MAYBE we will become a bit more TOLERANT.
I had a smile when I was reading a statement by SHIV SENA that the actor is speaking the language of Treachery, :) and what language do you speak sir when you say Maharashtra is for Maharashtrians, a few years back were you not the same who wanted the people migrating to Mumbai from other STATES OF INDIA, to leave the CITY. That I beleive is the Language of SOLIDARITY. TOUCHE’
I think the common man is too busy to make two ends meet, to make sure that there is roof over the head, that there is a bread on the table for his kids, I doubt if he has time for such idiocy, its only the so called EDUCATED, PATRIOTS etc etc who have all the free time for wasting time over a NON consequential statement. Do you think any-one of these characters would have made so much uproar if it was Not AMIR KHAN who made the statement.
Has anyone ever gone and seen the QUEUES outside foreign embassies in India, People QUEUE up to get that visa as early as 4am in morning, Millions if given a chance to leave WILL LEAVE, majority of those who are shouting Hoarse themselves would love to leave India and settle abroad, There are millions who probably say the same statement, who probably go through hell each day trying to make a living, yet NO ONE is interested in those poor.
A senior Leader in Indian Govt. (Giriraj Singh) openly said that “Those opposing Narendra Modi are looking at Pakistan, and such people will have place in Pakistan and not in India,” at a poll meeting at Mohanpur Haat Maidan near the temple town Deogarh, I guess the recent election in Bihar showed him what a common man thinks, hopefully he will learn. So those who take to TWITTER and go on a Rally at every statement WHERE ARE YOU PEOPLE. how come no outrage on the above statement.
What does that point to me it only shows that Not only are we getting more intolerant we ARE BECOMING CHOOSY INTOLERANT, we do so when it SUITS US.
Here is a Prayer that our literary master wrote , Rabindranath Tagore, BUT hey before you read it , please let me make myself CLEAR , this was written by a person of a DIFFERENT RELIGION than MINE..
Where the mind is without fear and the head is held high, Where knowledge is free, Where the world has not been broken up into fragments, by narrow domestic walls, Where words come out from the depth of truth, Where tireless striving stretches its arms towards perfection, Where the clear stream of reason has not lost its way, Into the dreary desert sand of dead habit, Where the mind is led forward by thee, Into ever-widening thought and action, Into that heaven of freedom, my father, let my country awake.
Indeed for the sake of GOD , which ever one it is you believe in WAKE UP.
On one of my posts I got the following comment
“Bikram, I sometimes wonder if I’ve punished my kid by bringing him into such a cruel world. I want him to have a beautiful life, but one can only be horrified imagining what kind of future this world is going to have. Whatever happened to ‘live and let live’!”..
HOW TRUE the statement is what sort of world are we leaving , or bringing them into.. Although I also feel that the above statement is what I have to SAY and what KIRAN RAO said above, but that she is married to AMIR KHAN :)
I think the time is to UNITE not further divide the nation , especially after what we have seen happen in PARIS, we should get together irrespective of color-caste-creed-religion Anything, and Stop going on and on .. on such silly issues..
Terrorist have struck again, Killing so many innocent people. Again this day freedom and everything else along with it came under attack from fanatic people. I am still wondering what religion teaches all this hatred and killing of people. Who is that person who is spreading these teachings. The people of Paris once again had to face an atrocity after the January attack.
Paris is known to be a Romantic city , a name that brings a feeling of Romance , But today they had to see the brunt of fanaticism. I do wish human beings where-ever they are get together and Join hands to get rid of this all and do a favour to mankind. I think time has come when ALL governments need to forget their petty issues and work on a bigger factor.
Everyone needs to be very clear who they support and not sounding arrogant but They need to pick up sides are they with the Terrorists or are they against them, if they are against them then they need to speak up , otherwise HOW is it possible that no one knows about the detailed planning that goes on for these acts. Someone somewhere knows and if they are quiet then they are with those who are killing innocent people.
What a cowardly act, shooting those who are unarmed and without any intimation. These are the same type of people who attacked humanity in Mumbai a few years back. I am not sure where will humanity get together to face these people and maybe stop them once and for all, It seems no one is safe anymore.
My heart goes out for those who have suffered, and those who have lost their loved ones to this madness, nothing ever can justify the murders. No doubt this act has been religiously motivated I can’t see any other reason behind it ,
Which GOD has ever preached that killing of innocent is right.
Which God has ever preached that shooting of people who are minding their own business , have a good time , sitting with friends and family at a restaurant having Food , is justifiable. Even for a minute if we consider these fanatics are fighting or retaliating because of the way foreign governments have treated them, STILL killing the innocent is not right, If they have an issue then target those who are making the decisions , those who are actually doing the damage.
The Gurudwara sahib at Smethwick In Birmingham put the lights on in Solidarity with FRANCE and people of Paris.
A terrible day for free world .. I hope and wish all bloggers speak against this evil that has happened. In today’s day and age one can die if they criticise one religion but killing of innocent people, hijacking , murdering innocent is STILL RIGHT… Such a barbaric attack which is a threat to the values and freedom of human beings.
Reminds me and brings memories of 26/11 in mumbai, the 7/7 attacks in London and the 9/11 in usa, this is nothing but ANTIHUMAN terrorism
I have a few requests that i want to make and ask first is kindly do let me know why are you people hell-bent on killing innocent humans, people whom you don’t know, people who you have never seen in your life , what in the world have they done to be treated by you like that, that you don’t give two hoots about them ..
I am sure you have your own reasons or whatever Evil thrill you guys get in killing an innocent human..
The recent events in Punjab (India) have been shocking and heart breaking. It is really sad to hear all the news that is going on. Why in their sane brains will Someone do what they are doing. There seems to be a very deep and meticulously planned conspiracy behind the sordid acts of blasphemy. Torn pages of Guru Granth Sahib ji, The holy book and Guru of Sikhs are being found daily.
It is Such a Shame for Each citizen of the country especially those who go around talking of equality and India rising that such incidents are still part and parcel of our country, How can any sane person say that India is shining.
I don’t care who is doing all this or which political party is behind this atrocity, All Separatists agencies have an agenda, The Government especially the one in Power has its own agenda, I guess they Both want Citizens to stay focus on everything other than economics, rights and prosperity. What is more painful is that the police is a mere spectator and does not seem to have a CLUE what is going on. I can understand that the BADAL government is probably not interested in sorting this because it helps them tremendously blaming all the events on to the opposition party, But then the Badal govt has never ever done anything for the good of the state or religion. They have always been interested in their own.
Chief Minister Parkash Singh Badal party is not only a political party but is also a religious party, So can a leader stay a leader on just MORAL grounds.
How can another religious faction desecrated the Sikh scripture and that too in Public, without the knowledge of Government, either the intelligence agencies in the state are a waste of space of the Govt itself is Highly Stupid. I dont see any other reason.
To make matters worse when a peaceful protests was organised they got marred with police opening fire on them, which left a couple dead and many injured and then to top it the Govt. Calls in the Indian Army and orders a media blackout, We are still in a Democratic Country HELLO.
This all brings back the memory of the dark days of terrorism, 1984. It seems to be history repeating itself and that too in a mere 30 year turnaround, exactly same scenarios took place then, the desecration and sacrilege of the Holy book. We all know what happened then and how NOT A SINGLE person has ever been sentenced for the atrocities committed inspite of knowing who they are, Which in itself is so SHAMEFUL and a Blot on Indian history.
The little media coverage that is out there further is more appalling and difficult to know what the true situation is , rumours are flying around like a bushfire, yet all the GOVT and OPPOSITION can do is blame each other for political mileage. I am sure IF the govt has nothing to hide then why a censorship on Media, Look what happened to minorities in the countries where censorship was imposed
I found the following lines so very true to my heart
|Hasenge hasayenge Jag ko hasaane waale
Baat ka batangad banalete hain zamaane waale
Sharm ki baat kahoon Yaan Dharam Ki baat kahoon
EK hi Jaise hain mandir aur Masjid Ko girane waale
|People will laugh At and With those who make you laugh
People make a mountain out of a molehill
If I talk of religion-culture-race anything
They are all the Same WHO bring down a Temple or a Mosque or a Gurudwara
