The Sins

Came across this post, as I was blog hopping. I was shocked!
No amount of contempt is enough to condemn the incident. Look at it closely:
A 17 year old girl is made to lie on the ground and beaten with a rod brutally all over her body as hundreds of people look on. After the 'punishment', the girl is taken away.
Sad. Very sad.
But I am against condemning a particular community for this, simply because, such incidents are common everywhere in all communities, the only common factors being illiteracy, poverty, frustration and primitive behavior and yes, a subtle criminal intent.
Here are a few examples:
  • Lynching is common across all races in all time lines. Check this link. It shocking, shameful and sad.
  • A 55 year old woman lynched in Bihar by 5 girls. Here is the link.
  • Check what the Maoists did here.
  • Remember Abu Ghraib prison cell? Check Wikipedia here.
  • And then the famous beheading by Taliban militants. I don't think there is a need to share the links.
  • Do you know about the SriLankan atrocities on either side?
So? My point is: It's the case of mass illiteracy, cruelty, lack of moral behavior and ethics and the biggest of all: THE LACK OF HUMANITY, OF UNIVERSAL BROTHERHOOD.

We typically like to group people based on Nationality, Race and what not! But as all Indians are not snake charmers, all .......s are not terrorists or brutal creatures who commit sins like what was described as the first incident of this post.

But, it goes without saying that all these fundamentalists, terrorists and .... need to be dealt with severely, if we want to make the world a safer place to live. All those people who think they are God (read Satan) and have the authority to give punishment to other people without the verdict coming through an established court of law deserve TO BE HANGED TILL DEATH.

But, please, let us not pin point a particular group! May common sense prevail.

It was just one incident I pointed out to, to talk about a larger picture, nowhere in my post have I mentioned anything about this being limited to people in a particular country or religion. I am aware of such things happening everywhere else as well... and I totally agree with what you say about mass illiteracy and cruelty. But when I think about it for long enough... subject of god and religion has caused more harm than any good ever... well.. actually that debate can go on forever!

anyway, you have a lovely blog btw.. :)

Chiranjib said...

yeah... you did mention that :(
"OK one person, I can call him retarded... an entire community? what can I call it?" -- you wrote.

and oh.. am so glad that you liked my blog.
keep visiting! :D

Lynching is certainly inhumane.. However, illiteracy is the root of all these problems.. Remove illiteracy and there wont be any such problems!!

@Simply Ridiculous

Yes, agreed... illiteracy is one of the root causes... wonder when common sense will take charge...
