Neither patriotism nor peace
Definition of peace, taxonomy of patriotism and constitutional obligations of politicians, bureaucrats and common masses needs revisiting to understand it properly to avoid mingling of religion, politics and democracy. Anarchical approach of dispensation, ignorant stance of masses, hatred, communalism, corruption and unruly race for materialistic achievements has become routine of life, thus, haunting principles of democracy unabatedly.
People in Jammu and Kashmir are tired of turmoil and trauma for last more than two decades and are still reeling under the similar situation. As per scheduled calendar of protests by separatists, protests by commoners and curfew restrictions by government in every month more than 15 days go waste and will continue to be so in future. Such atmosphere cannot be termed as peaceful. If peaceful why to restrict nationalistic activities, if not who is ruling whom?
Billion dollar question needed to be answered is that if situation is peaceful then why to restrict anybody from unfurling tri-color at anywhere in the country. If situation is not peaceful then how come so called elected government exists? Shouldn’t be there Central or Army rule? Government is running, people are dying and starving and law of the land is simply playing as prostitute.
Once upon a time there were stories telling that democracy is for the people, by the people and of the people but now whosoever speaks truth is a culprit and has to undergo police remand and judicial trail. Especially, minorities fled from valley had to experience humiliation, disrespect and torture in terms of mental, physical and social aspect for being peace loving and patriotic. In India and especially in Jammu and Kashmir neither peace loving nor patriotic people are required, because affairs are being run without these elements to please international community and fundamentalists.
