Just have watched the news of the Managalore pub incident.
I just cannot control my rage at what was happening, all sorts of swear words were coming to my mouth, I simply am seething in anger and am really hurt when I was watching the events on TV. A young male belonging to Mangalore, was being interviewed in a Bangalore pub by the NDTV Correspondent about what he thought of the incident and he said I would like to ask only one thing, “ Are we free ?”
Incidentally, today is our Republic day, in the morning I received an email from IHM asking me to write about Republic day and what it means to us Indians, that I was tagged. I replied to IHM that I had guests and would need some time, but when I saw this event on news 10 mins back, I don’t know what to say.
Should I write about Republic Day or should I answer that young guy who is asking, “Are we free ?”
Are we actually free, I ask myself.
A few self proclaimed “Society servants” decide to take the law in their own hands, they will decide what to wear, whether to drink or not, whether to dance or not. They are the self proclaimed judges powered by their number and decide to beat up women and even men who try to protect the women. Freaking Democracy anyone ?Moral Police anyone ?
How the hell do you actually now write about Republic of India when something like just has happened that has left a foul stench in the mouth.
This event has already been tagged as the Talibanisation of India.
Now there is already a conspiracy angle being provided that there was drug trafficking happening in the pub. After all this is again a BJP run state.
I mean how the heck does any one decide to stop drug trafficking without informing the police ?? Where the f#$k do these self proclaimed morality saviours vanish when 26/11’s happen ???? Bashing up females without any consideration is moral policing ???? How the F#$k does the media even label this as moral policing ??
This is behaviour that puts me in utter shame and these are times when I feel not at all proud to claim that these bastards are also part of India.
Sorry but the whole mood, the spirit has been dampened and I cannot do anything better but sulk. I know this is not an oppurtune post, but it really hurts.
