Let bygones be bygones

The scars still live on. A nation of over billion souls yet to come to terms on what happened in this country 15 years ago to this day. Of course what happened on 6th December 1992 was diabolic in every sense of the word. A time when mob frenzy clouded good judgement; a day when yet again men showed the scourge they had made religion in the name of Gods! 

 Public memory is often short or so they claim, but the demolition of Babri masjid goes down in the annals of Indian history as a black day. The day India woke up to face the demons that were waiting to confront her. 45 years of pseudo secularist’s who were at the helm of affairs of running a country purely by the virtue of their lineage and not any other qualification. The underbellies of the nation in the making were exposed.

 December 6th 1992 – March 13th 1993, the passage of time was swift. The fight was out in the open between those holding the saffron banners and those holding the green banners. Ironic as it may seem the country was torn between the colours of her own flag!

 March 13th 1993 sounded the death knell for every fantasy of Hindu-Muslim bhai bhai cliché that was immortalized on the silver screen and every pseudo secularist’s speech. The nation was rocked. The war within surfaced. My motherland stood raped beyond recognition, held at a ransom by the Machiavellian individuals with an evil lust for power. The nation stood divided between the extreme leftists and fanatical rightists.

I returned home and the security arrangements at the airport reminded me “and I was like “Oh! right, it’s that day of the year”. All the TV channels discussed it, some aired the demonstrations and some aired very tense moments between the warring communities. PEOPLE!!! 15 years damn it! It’s all over, get over it, and move on with life. No god’s going to come to defend your child! Whoever called you to be martyrs? Aaah! But seriously, don’t you folks have anything better to do, getting children to rally and demonstrate! Go home you nincompoops! You folks are an eyesore and apology to the God you believe in!

 Peace!

    Awesome thoughts,

    The Liberhan Commission, probing the circumstances leading to demolition of Babri Masjid, was recently granted its 42nd extension which will end by December 31. It is the way India’s legal system offer justice to minority Muslims. That 15-year old Commission has already cost the state exchequer about Rs 7.20 crore! This is what we call Republic of India. Period.

    Yep, saw the news recently. And well, how new is that to us really? We are so used to court cases extending beyond ones lifetime in any case…
