Gauri Lakshmi assassinated!! What strikes you the most when you hear these words is how vulnerable our society has become. Living in a tolerant country, how intolerance has brought us on the brink of societal collapse. What amazes the most, is the fact that she was a right wing activist against the hard core Hindu hardliners who have taken upon themselves to promote crony nationalism and religion. It proves that our society has multiple enemies within and our country’s focus should now change to ‘ache mann’ from ‘ache din’. With PM Modi choosing to remain quite, it was upon our leader of opposition to voice his opinion on the brutual murder of democracy. Our politicians need to understand that issue like gau raksha , love Jihad has towed down the image of the largest democracy of the world. It’s high time that people who matter, take charge our else our society would exhume under the burns and burden of religionism. With incident like these, Brand India takes a hit and programs like Strat up India , Make in India start to loose their steam.
Weak opposition also plays a critial part here as it tells us the importance of stong opposing voice which should be heard at trying time like these. It’s time for an introspection for both the ruler and the prince before it becomes too late to cap the situation. With the expansion of Hindu hardliner base across the country, the present government should take a note of what our society is going through and why it is important for them to take charge right now.
