Shame on me, Shame on you, Shame on everyone! For the life lost of someone’s mother, someone’s grandmother and a old lady. I intended not to write anything but got persuaded by the inhuman and heinous mock of death. If it would have even come from some anonymous I would have understood, but to my bloody surprise it came from journalists and politicians. Yes I am talking about the death of senior journalist GAURI LANKESH.
Let me make my stand clear first as I know that some morons will start to malign the argument by making idiotic assumptions. I am not a leftist, not a Naxali, neither an anti Hindu. I am a Hindu with his faith intact. I am more a supporter of BJP AND I hate congress to my core. I have no propaganda to sell and agenda to advertise. Among all above mentioned everything has remained same over the years apart from just one, that I use to be staunch supporter of BJP and believer in Modiji and now I am just a supporter getting circumspect as the deeds happening around have chalked the staunch out.
Many will argue that why I am questioning only when she died and why overlooked the deaths of Hindu community in Bengal or Kerala or something like that. I don’t need to explain, everyone knows what I am taking about. The crystal clear reason is that this write-up is not to mourn her death rather against the inhuman celebration that’s been going over a death. Everyone can choose not to respect someone but insulting someone’s death is heinous.
Now let’s get down to the real discussion. A senior journalist Gauri Lankesh was gunned down by 3 goons outside her home. This can happen to anyone as the society is filled with antisocial elements. But to praise it or justify it in some crude joking manner and that also by the same fraternity in which she worked is the most sickening act. Taking point from the journalist shukla, she can be anti hindutva, an atheist, supporting naxal ideology, but that doesn’t make her a deserving candidate of getting shot. She was an elderly lady and prized journalist. What happened to her is never justified and is a homicide according to the law that governs this country and thank God it doesn’t follow any ideology either left or right or else some people would have committed crime in its name, some justified it, some defended it and some blamed it. We have become so inhuman that we don’t see a life lost as a life lost. We have stooped so low that we are joking about the benefits and loss of a murder.
What the hell she did wrong. Was it her crime to have an independent thinking which questions the establishment and believes in change? If that’s it then every political opposition in this country and every man who is not with the contemporary establishment should be gunned down.
I know that whenever I will start this debate there are jerks who will try to dismiss the argument by lousy and same old dialogues, so I have come prepared to take everyone of you head on this time. The first cliché statement, I will get, is why didn’t you speak up when kashmiri pandits were killed and Exiled. My answer to all of them is, where the hell were you, who are now sympathizing so much after almost twenty years. My age was 5 years that time so leave writing on an issue, I may have been learning to write properly but, I will surely tell where everyone else was during this period i.e, early 90’s. BJP and RSS was busy in conducting RATH YATRA and demolishing BABRI MASJID and the CONGRESS was busy in doing BOFORS and several other scams along with pushing the country towards economic crisis. Another trump card of government is SIACHIN. The people who are so concerned about SIACHIN and our soldiers should have done some good for them rather than just babbling about their heroics and patting their own shoulders. If china can built a train route on Himalaya, then surely state of art facilities can be created in SIACHIN for our soldiers by using the best technology available. Our current prime minister went to so many countries hence should have brought some tech to make the life of soldiers easy, the people whose heroics, you say, are maligned by political propaganda. If anyone has some more question feel free to bring to my notice, I will answer all. But I do not want to divert from the topic as its government’s forte not mine, so let’s get back. Mr. Kalburgi was also killed in same manner as Gauri lankesh. So for how long this anarchy will prevail. Anyone, who opposes establishment or questions government, cannot be killed, its democracy not monarchy. Current government condemn the period of emergency for mass persecution, then what good are they if they are creating the same situation.
After the old lady was killed a journalist tweeted, she got what she deserved for her deeds, another man working in Ministry of Information Technology wrote ” Jaise karni wasi bharni” and there were others like this. What the hell she did wrong and even if she did something wrong how a planned murder can be justified on that argument. From 2013 till this date 16 journalists have been killed throughout the country for going against the establishment.
So as citizen of this country have we became so ferocious like animals that we will go on killing somebody who does’ not share our views or be happy that they get killed? So lastly, I just want to say, that if anyone is murdered, then it’s a grief not a celebration. Killing that old lady was a cowardly act and not some heroic and the people involved are all cowardly bastards. She was right or left that’s not the issue, she is hindutva or anti hindutva that’s not the issue, she is anti establishment or pro that’s not the issue. The issue is that how can someone be praised for murdering someone in a democracy and no reason is justified. The people who are praising, I just have a question for them. If some of their relative receives the same fate will then they will be high on euphoria as they are now? If anarchy is what these people think is going to solve the issue then they should know that once anarchy prevails it spreads all over.
