It seems that India is flaunting its spirit of secularism in a telling manner by spreading the scourge of terrorism rather than by uniting its citizens. First, it was the Muslims who were identified for it; they were criticised by the Hindus; now Hindus have been identified for it and it has become the talk of the town. So, leaving the controversies behind, an outcome emerges crystal clear – culprits obtain in both the religions whose primary aim is to terrorise the Indians. Hindus blame the Muslims and Muslims blame the Hindus but the ultimate sufferer always is the home of both the communities, viz, India. What do you call this? Should it be called secularism of religion or the secularism of division, if it can be so called?
Ever since the Jaipur blasts, newspapers started highlighting the names of culprits who were involved in the crime; never did I see a person showing his disappointment over the deteriorating mindset of the Indians, though. The controversies always remained confined to a particular religion. A few days back, a finger was pointed at the tenets of Islam and even the newspapers published debates on the mindset of Muslims. Now everyone’s attention is riveted on the teachings of Hinduism. How dare we call such culprits humans? Yes, they are not humans who dare to snatch the most precious gift of the almighty to us, viz, our life.
Why don’t we join hands against terrorism instead of joining hands against Islam or Hinduism? Yes, those people don’t belong to any religion and the only thing they believe in or worship is terrorism.
Why do we blame each other? We find black sheep in every community so it is better that the spot is got rid of; it should not be allowed to pervade the entire community.
Whether one is a Hindu or a Muslim, the crime shouldn’t be associated with the religion the culprit belongs to since both don’t deserve to be included in any religion. The culprits only follow the religion of division and their aim is to terrorise and divide us Indians.
The need of the hour is to unite the Indians and not just any particular religion, against the web of terrorism. Our mother is the same; then how can we be different? We till the same soil and seek the same enlightenment but why should we differ when it comes to preserving and protecting the integrity of the nation? We are one community. Different are those who try to divide us and kill us. Rather than pointing fingers at each other, let’s outcast those who defame our existence. The spot of terrorism can’t be eliminated until we come together on a common platform and prove that before being Muslims or Hindus, we belong to the supreme community of Indians.
