It was utter blanch and disbelief apart from rage n fury,that was meted out to Ajmal kasab's brazen revelations and plea for guilty of charges on the 26/11.. What's the big deal about him revealing all those now, is something which i don't understand..He has been long accepted a convict with the adduced evidence more than enough for a layman,if not the court..Of course,the court has its own procedures,which i feel is shitty in this case becoz it's been about 8months since the catastrophe and the lone surviving culprit still enjoys the whiff of air..Indians,for sure,need to be proud of our tolerance and meticulousness in delivering justice to every human being.. But since it is 'Abalanam Balam Kshama', i fear if we are considered 'powerless' owing to its converse..
The fear is ratified when the racial attacks on Indians in Aus is taken into account,and is reinforced when the frisking of our ex-president at Delhi airport is pondered..I'm definitely of the opinion that every individual must be treated equally when human lives are at stake,and no VIP must be exempted from a security check..But the double standards of the western system deserves more than mere reproach..If they exempt Mr.Bush from a security check,then frisking of Kalam is nothing less than breach of diplomatic ties which needs to be dealt with strongly..But what was even more shameful was the reaction of some of our politicians,Yechuri's,if i need to quote one,who asked the govt to clarify if the frisking had something to do with his muslim identity!He must at least have given the past episodes a thought when George Fernandas and Somnath Chattergee had to undergo similar procedures..India is a secular nation and religious sentiments is one of the most fragile ones..When we are grappling with a state of affairs when many of the Indian muslims are replete with the feeling of insecurity in their homeland,such remarks would prove detrimental..People with public profile should at least be cautious of what they speak,if not act..
Speaking of detrimental and shameful speeches reminds me of Rita Bahuguna-Mayawati catfights..it was really stigmatic of these so called 'representatives of people' trying to gain mileage with filthy toungue on a rape victim's chagrin..And what was even more obnoxious is the aftermath when the congress almost extended full support to Ms.Bahuguna,and BSP allegedly reacted violently with an arson attack towards Ms.Bahuguna's residence..
Equally obtrusive is Mr.S.M.Krishna's statement on 'bargaining with the sovereignity of the state' ,in the context of the ENR trade with the US,which invited diatribes from every nook n corner..There has to be a minimum dignity of speech that must be maintained,especially when pertaining to matters of The State..
Speaking of dignity,i'm forced to mention Ms.Karat's remarks on the language of the CBI charge sheet against the accused,in the Sister Abahaya murder case,which has been an unsolved mystery for about 1.5 decades..She warns the CBI to mind the words,and maintain the minimum respect for a woman whosoever it be..I don't understand what kind of a 'respect' a woman,who was dangerously audacious to murder a nun, deserves..If it's the 'feminism' thats playing the tone of outrage,there are a plethora of more important matters to look into..
'..Who would have thought that there are people who think it is a sports body whose job is to organize the Commonwealth Games every few years! Or that it is headed by US President Barrack Obama(oh,the poor queen)!..
..Ignorance apparently runs deep with many Indians being under the impression that it is some sort of a UN outfit whose boss is Kofi Annan!'
I couldn't laugh more.. !!
