Today, the front page of a leading newspaper displayed a picture of Firstpost journalist Tarique Anwar getting thrashed by the lawyers in Patiala House court premises in New Delhi. I really don’t know about other readers, but it deeply penetrated my heart with a sense of fear. The very first question that came up in my mind was like if the journalists are not safe in this country that too within the court premises, then what will happen to the common man whose only hope is judiciary in this country? The lawyers, who keeps the prime responsibilities of protecting the law in this nation should not be getting indulged in such acts. Because it will lead to a cascading effect and we as a citizens of this nation will loose our faiths in judiciary.
Just two days back to yesterday’s incidence, same set of lawyers were attacking the journalists and CPI activists. BJP MLA O P Sharma was also seen using his muscles to suppress the support for JNUSU president Kanhaiya Kumar. None of the policemen came forward to rescue them. I am literally surprised to see all this and couldn’t find a convincing reason from anyone, who can actually justify such acts from the educated lawyers and BJP MLA. In democracy, not answering a questions becomes an answer, which can be very bad in taste for the central government.
Few days back, I wrote an article against all those JNU students, who were raising anti-national slogans and were demanding for the freedom of Kashmir. They deserved to be punished, but who will punish them? The bunch of frustrated lawyers or the failed BJP MLAs from Delhi constituencies. If a person is not safe within the court premises in this country, which is considered to be the final ladder of justice for every citizen, then where are we supposed to go? Is our judiciary system getting hijacked by the members of ruling party in central government. I am writing all this under an immense pain to see my country navigating towards the hooliganism.
I am a strong supporter of BJP and specially Narendra Modi for the kind of love and compassion he always shows for the nation. His good deeds are highly appreciated, but time has come for him to take the charge over the uncontrolled hooligans in his party, who are ruining the legacy left by the great leaders of the party simply for getting the footage in media and proving their loyalty towards the party. And I truly understand that all the opposition parties specially leftists are trying to create a stir in the nation against BJP and RSS. But, it has to be dealt carefully specially when the party is in power, and those who stays in power are historically prone to the criticism from every directions. So, what is there to be disturbed about? Take the criticism and keep doing good work. The nation is keeping the track of your good works, but I appeal to you to please keep the idiots like O P Sharma in check, otherwise they will lead to a serious debacle of BJP in upcoming elections.
