Unity, Gimme a break!

I was watching TV today and these were the pictures that were flashed on the screen. The place is Orissa and the religion of the victim (a 13 year old girl) was not mentioned. The 'occasion' was the attack on the churches, again. Have a close look at this picture and think. Does this child have a religion, belief and is a fundamentalist? Could she convert another person to any religion?

Since last Sunday churches in Orissa, Bangalore were attacked by armed fanatics who felt they stood for the true India. Innocent people of all ages have been attacked and hurt. All this in a country where Right to Freedom of Religion is enshrined in the constitution. A country that is considered to be home for many religions and claims to be Diverse yet United. United? Give me a break.

Godhra, Orissa, and how many more do we need. This could be your daughter tomorrow, for all I know. Its a shame.

Its a known fact that these kind of incidents are triggered by crooked politicians for their own benefits.the problem is these cases are not investigated enough to find the culprits and bring them to justice as it is done for terrorist activities.Because if a bomb explodes,police instantly deploy a search squad and do everything needed to trace out people connected to the bombings.But in case of a communal violence,police run & hide in order to survive as they cannot hit back because the culprits are "common people".A shooting order means next time the government there will fall. Most of these cases will rest in the files itself.Who is responsible for the death of this little girl? In a sense,we all are responsible.What should we do?
We have to cultivate good qualities in minds of children to view their fellow human beings without their religion,race, cast etc. Then we might see at least our kids are living in a better society than the present one.

Exactly MJ. You echoed my thoughts. Every one is made a fool of this game. Some individuals interests take a toll on innocents. How sad!
