wake up india – wake up india call for sensible
wake up india – Abhay mokashi
The anti-Muslim agitation at Jantar Mantar and at Dwarka in Delhi is a wake up india call
for the sensible people in the country, even as the whole nation seems to be in a state of slumber.
The fanning of anti-Muslim sentiments is now being done openly with the Delhi Police,
which is under the control of Amit Shah, remaining a silent spectator. The
Bharatiya Janta Party (BJP) -led government at the Centre has failed on almost all
fronts and there are whimpers from the people belonging to different sections of the society,
across the country.
In Dwarka some fanatic Hindus protested against the proposed construction of Haj House,
while at Jantar Mantar, in an agitation supposedly against archaic laws, was clearly
against the Muslims, with slogans of killing the Muslims and all this in the name of Lord Ram.
The farmers and labourers have been raising their voice against laws which are anti-farmers
and anit-labour; the general public is badly hit by inflation, rising prices of fuel
and unemployment among other things. Gradually, some voices are being raised against
Modi, his party and his government. The BJP has already faced a crushing defeat in the
legislative assembly elections in West Bengal and has been facing major set-backs in local
elections in several states, especially Uttar Pradesh and Punjab and the party has realised
that it will find it difficult to retain power in Uttar Pradesh after the ensuing assembly elections.
As a result, the BJP has come out with the strongest weapon in its armory—the name of Lord Ram.
wake up india The slogans at Jantar Mantar, calling for lynching of the Muslims, were tagged with chants
of Jai Shri Ram. Nobody has insulted Hinduism and Lord Ram, the way the Hindutva gang has
been insulting since it launched the agitation for the construction of Ram Mandir in Ayodhya
at the place where once the Babri Mosque stood.
wake up india – The BJP and the other constituents of the Hindutva brigade are known to be anti-Communists,
but they have made a capital of Karl Marx’s statement that religion is opium of the people.
Whenever, the Hindutva gang lost its ground or popularity, it has fanned communal hatred,
knowing fully well that the majority of the people in the country will fall for it and will
forget all their problems. They have made religion work like a psychotropic substance and
have succeeded in that effort.
The communalisation of politics and the society is dangerous for the nation and the country
will pay a heavy price for it, unless the masses wake up to the situation.
It is shocking that the followers of Hinduism are allowing the use of the religion by these
parties and organisations for their political gains. Lord Ram is described as maryada
purushotttam (the most dignified or the follower of ethics). It is an irony that just the
opposite is being done in the name of Lord Ram and there are no protests against this.
The Jai Shri Ram slogan was also coined by the Hindutva gang and made popular in a
country where this slogan did not exist.
