Recently three shameful incidents have once again left us grappling with the subhuman side of our society.
All three have been caught on camera or displayed on social media extensively...
(In all the three cases, the images/videos are too disturbing to show, which is why I have gone with a blurred out image of the first incident...)
Firstly, there is that awful molestation video wherein a pack of rabid subhumans attack a couple of hapless women, who, as in other sexual assault cases, find themselves in the wrong place at the wrong time in the wrong company.
If social media reports are to be believed, all the men involved in the attack belong to a certain religion, but the mainstream media placed the blame squarely at the Chief Minister's door for the incident, and did not name these vermin.
It is all very well to blame the government of the day, but why not also include the full details? What is stopping the media from naming and shaming the vermin? Isn't it the job of an impartial media house to present the whole story?
Anyway, let's hope that the government/police/courts take suitable action and bring the vermin to justice. I hope the authorities realise that it is the lack of appropriate response that encourages the vermin to carry out brazen attacks such as these.
Second; how about some beef, roadside? Courtesy, the peaceful denizens of 'god's own country'; those that are also the members of the 'grand old party of the country'.
This is just the problem with banning anything. It creates the ideal atmosphere for subaltern subhumans such as those that slaughtered the calf to come out of the woodwork and garner cheap publicity. Who knew about that youth leader - yes, the very same who is seen in some pictures with the 'youthful' scion of the dynasty - before this heinous act was carried out?
In all this, I feel for the innocent animal that was literally sacrificed at the altar of sinister political machinations. Veering as I am towards veganism, I would suggest that it is not just the cows/cattle that need our protection, but all living beings. This is also why I am not in favour of the 'beef ban' per se.
One also has to lament the state of affairs in the most literate and progressive southern state. By the looks of it, it is also being painted red - literally and politically - by the subhumans, and may well end up with the tag, 'devil's own country'.
I hope the animal rights activists overcome their selective blindness, and initiate action against these subhumans.
Third, but by no means the least uncouth: public humiliation of Hindu god.
You cannot conjure up a more ironical situation if you wanted to. Apparently members of a certain reservation-seeking group that is named after Bhima spat on a picture of Hanuman before hitting it with slippers. Both Bhima and Hanuman, in case you missed the point, are avataras of mukhyaprana - or Vayu, the Wind God.
Couple of quick points on this incident: here's an invitation to the subhuman group members to do the same to the pictures of a certain black stone belonging to a certain religion. Oh yes...they may decline the invite, because they are smart enough to realise that they will be beheaded before put on trial. Once again, the magnanimity and tolerance of Sanatana Dharma has been taken advantage of.
The other point is about the root cause for this evil display: caste and reservations. When we are looking at having a uniform civil code and a uniform tax policy for the entire country, why hold on to this outdated practice of favouring a less deserving candidate over a meritorious one?
Let's hope the present government gets rid of reservations altogether. And somebody, please file a PIL on this subhuman group.
I am also, in the meantime, waiting for the highly secular award-wapsi gang members to start returning their worthless awards in protest against these three subhuman incidents...
