The current issue of delivering hatred speech and chanting of anti-nation slogans in the campus of Jawahar Lal Nehru University (JNU), located in the heart and capital of our nation i.e. Delhi, has caught the wrong attention of the whole nation towards it. An anti-nation act in the centre of any country is quite dangerous and it’s even more alarming when people involved in such acts are from the educated lot. A lot of questions bang our mind every time such incident takes place in any part of our Motherland. In this blog, I have tried to touch upon the issue of different opinions that arise whenever any anti-nation activity takes place around us.
What is this issue all about? Why are the educated youth involved in anti-nation activities? Had the system done anything wrong against the common men, that made their hearts filled with hatred against the very nation in which they live in? Is it that all the people who are involved in such acts being a victim of the system or is it that a large number of them are being brainwashed to follow a certain ideology and purpose? Above all what is more striking is the question that could there be two opinions on anti-nation activities? Is there any room for favouring an anti-nation act?
Don’t know whether there is an another side of the story related to the incident or not, but after watching the video footage being telecasted, on national media, of the rally being organised in JNU, what is prima facie evident is that some of the slogans chanted in that rally tantamount to an anti-nation act. Indeed there is a place for differences of opinion in a democracy, but there is no place for anything that is anti-nation. If we do not love our nation then we have no right to live in that nation. I repeat that “the people who don’t love their nation should leave it right away”. We may not like a particular decision, policy or we may have a different stand on a particular issue as against the government, but in no way, we have a right to be Anti-Nation.
It is for the judiciary to decide what exactly happened in the matter concerned and who is responsible for the act. However, the point that I want to raise is that could there be two opinions on anti-nation activities or not. I know that there would be a unanimous reply to this question that there is no place for anything that is anti-nation, in any part of the world. Now the question that is troubling me is that how come some of the persons and political parties are standing by side of the people involved in such acts? On what basis are they supporting this incidence? Is there any other side to the incidence which we are unaware of? Is the video footage that is being telecasted on national media distorted one? Or is it that the support of the political parties to this incidence is simply politically motivated, just to take advantage of vote bank politics? At least they should make their stand clear that what exactly they are supporting and on what basis.
I do hope that the truth behind the incidence comes out in near future and the culprit gets punished for the same. But, above all what I do hope is that we all should be more thoughtful and act sensibly in our conducts. Do remember that a seed of hatred, in whatever form, is only capable of generating a destructive mindset. Hatred leads to destruction. There is no place for hatred in a peaceful world. The choice is ours what we want to breed for the generations to come. The sooner we all realise it, the better it will be for the mankind. I would like to end this blog with the thought that everyone loves thy nation and keep it above all the personal interests.
I wish that the almighty give good sense to each one of us.
God bless you all!
