Being a Hindu and above all an Indian, I am saddened by the current state of affairs.
A statement made by a former Vice- President who demitted office recently is being made such a great issue.Instead of trying to understand what is being conveyed, we are attacking not only the person but his forefathers too.
Granted that the world is being terrorised by hardliners of a particular religion but is it ethical to paint everyone and everything with the same brush.
Granted there have been no communal riots in the country for some time now but we are facing an even more scary situation_ lynching.And there is no punishment for the perpetrators.Is it justified?
We are faced with the same problems as before—rising prices, unemployment, bad infrastructure, power and water shortages, corruption and so on.
Our laws need to be updated and new laws made in view of the rapidly changing economic structure. Nothing is being done about it.
We have suffered through terrorism in Punjab in the 80s and 90s but again the nation is falling into the same trap of being divided on the basis of religion.
I am sorry if my thinking has hurt anyone.
