Eat Beef and Get Murdered: Welcome to India

Man from Dadri, UP, was killed and women at his house were molested from his family for eating meal because some inhuman and uneducated mob supported by power hungry politician heard rumors of cow slaughtering by man? Later, which turned out to be false? The sample of meat was sent to the laboratory to check whether the meat is beef or not? It was a rumor of eating beef and when asked Ex- MLA of BJP, he came up with the statement, “those arrested for the killing are “innocent kids” who got “excited” by the grave crime of eating beef.” In other words MLA said Human life values nothing in front of our Agenda and vote bank. This didn’t stop here, later, BJP blamed the victim family for loose of life and murderers were called as “Innocent Kids” and justified the killing of deceased. The killing over the beef rumor lies in the ideology supporting “Hindutva”, where no other community can practice their beliefs, if did, than has to face remorse consequences like this. In other words Hindutva forces the death of “Secularism” and “Humanity”. The country with enormous number of religions, communities, linguistics has to follow one law and practice one religion i.e. The Hindutva.
These so called politicians value no one more than their power and vote bank. When Muslims fight or protest back they are referred as terrorists and called their protests and fights ulterior motives of terrorism. What different role VHP, Sanatan Sanstha, RSS, and other extremist organizations play in India than ISIS and other terrorist organizations, who kill innocent humans for their ulterior motives? The work is same but being Non-Muslims extremist organization, media and government will Label them differently “Innocent kids got excited, it’s not act of terrorism, its act of crime”. Why Dual Policy? Why Hypocrisy? Does the Nation only belong to only one community? Or it’s finally going in the direction what some extremist people and organizations wanted it to be? The Nation is of Hindus, Muslims, Christians, Sikhs, Jains, Buddhists and of many other people from different beliefs, not only of supporters of Hindutva. Even whole world belongs to different communities not only to one particular community, who goes for mass murder to claim the country or world. Different people have different beliefs, different Ideologies, different nature and different taste. But no one has the right to murder on bases of difference on Taste, Belief, Ideology or Religion.
The issue of Beef Ban or eating non-veg has long history and clash of opinions has been between vegetarians and Non-vegetarians from ages. That doesn’t give a particular community right to kill Human Being for eating what they like (killing pets are not supported). If eating Beef is problem for a particular community? Than Muslims have problem with Alcohol and Pork, than why aren’t they banned yet? Why cigarettes are not banned yet even after knowing these are also against the sentiments of Sikh community? Why they still in Market? The beef banning is not for Nation it is for one particular sect, as majority of votes belong to that sect. The Beef Ban is not for Nation, it is communal.
Why Muslims and other beef consuming communities had been target on this issue and killed mercilessly? When India is ranked the world’s largest exporter of Beef with 2,400,000tones (contribute 23.53% to total export of world) in 2015 followed by Brazil with 2,005,000 (19.66%). And most of prominent names and exporters of beef are Arabian Export of Deepak Tijori, Al Kabeer Exports now run by Atul Subberwal, Al-Noor Export of Ajay Sud, Mahesh Jagadale and Co, Sujata Bones of MK Deore, Dode Industries, Fine Exports, SK Leather, Ramesh Juneja & Sons, Bharat Leather, Woodland, Raymonds, Datta Soap, BS International, Sixth Sense, Natural Craft, Bounty Fashion Export, Kochhar Brothers, Ravi Exports, Kalia International, and Hindustan Unilever Ltd. – all engaged in beef and the business of associated raw materials and products. They why a poor Muslim old man was inhumanly killed? Why his daughters were molested? Son assaulted? Mother beaten? And was accused of hurting religious sentiments?
BJP’s Indore MLA Usha Thakur has stirred up a hornet’s nest when she advised “Muslim community to either sacrifice their sons or give up the practice of sacrificing innocent animals on the occasion of Eid al-Adha”.
Is this the sympathy for animals or provoking people to kill Muslims? Do they want to prove India does only belong to followers of Hindutva?
This is an act of terrorism, same as other International Terrorist Organizations. For Massacre whole Indian government is responsible.

Human being are not meant to be killed even if they belong to different religion, beliefs and ideologies.

Journey of a Boy- From the Land of War to the Heights of Rugby

Kashmir– the land known distinctively as the paradise on earth has been the Political Battle Field and reason for the lethal rivalry between India and Pakistan. The Valley of indelible beauty has witnessed some of the major tussles in the history (you can find an alternative to convey the same meaning-may be tussle or defeats) and many subdued stories that either stayed untold or died before they were born. Sabotaged by politics and timely war, this paradise has fuelled the zeal of many scholars, sports stars and other famous personalities. Lost in hope of peaceful mornings and bright future, some has kept ray of hope alive among people, who have seen intense destruction in the last few decades. This Valley has immense talents, great intellect and strong penchant for sports. Even amid these political turmoils people in this valley have never let their passion and love for sports die, and with their unwavering zeal have continued to produce top sports icons, some of them have even managed to carve a robust place in hall of fame at many set bar even at international and National levels.

Failure never disheartens this young player and instead he takes it in his pride to achieve new heights “On the last day of the camp, I injured my right hand finger in a trial game and needed 5 stitches on it. Even after making it so far they could not select me for national team squad, citing reasons of my injured hand”, he quoted. He didn’t allow his failure to make way to a life of dejection and continued to work hard. His efforts didn’t go unnoticed and many Rugby veterans accolade him for his striking performance and penchant for rugby. While playing in Delhi, he met Sir Alex Murphy, the privileged member of Rugby Football Union who got impressed with Sarib’s execution and introduced him to Ikram Butt- founder of British and Asian Rugby Association.

Mother – Who Didn’t Last

“I’m alone, why did you go? Didn’t you for even once thought about us? Why you left early when we needed you? The moment we started understanding the meaning of love, you took love away from us and a reason, and left! How your heart could let you do this?” and leave our hearts in ache.

She-the mother who didn’t last but her motherhood left aches, when for the first time took wee adorable creature gently in her hands and tenderly embraced to her bosom and she forgot her unbearable pain of giving birth. Looked at him and in her whimpering voice and sobbed eyes, she said, “you are my Father, I have never seen my father, not even had picture of his, and I guess he looked like you. Please never leave me like he did”. The wee creature may not be her first love but she loved this creature more than anything ever existed on earth, even she. The Girl turned mother dreamt every day of looking her wee creature growing up and turning into child to young boy in youth to man, seeing him having job, getting him married having kids and wife- whenever she use to think about this her eyes use to fill with tears. She fed him; every second of her life she use to notice him burgeoning, loved him, played with him, use to take his tender hands into her hands, pamper him, hug n kiss him- thousands of ways that no one other than mother could love her son. Going on days hunt over ridges, her mind was still with her wee adorable creature, who she called her son and adore him most; thinking about him her day use to pass. The evening always bought happiness to her, when she will be returning to her nest. The travel would look like voyage to her- motherhood of gone mother. After days hunt when she steps inside her nest, her eyes search for her son and the moment she see him a life becomes meaningful for her and she gets another reason to live. The Mother- who didn’t last gave later birth to two more wee adorable creatures that set reasons for her to live and fight against odds of family, work and world. When these three wee adorable creatures of her started growing, who were her children. She had her dreams come true, her pain never stayed when she use to see smile on small faces of her children. A small scratch on her children use to make her nights miserable and days restless, tears use to make her cheeks softer the soft.

Why she was born? For what day?. She use to see other young boys and girls and then use to count everyday, every hour when her children will grow of their age- young girl and boys. She tried every single possible way to save them from outside world and grow them- the thing in which she never really succeeded but yes she became their shield. When her children grew young, she was happy; she started making plans of her dreams, which were her children. Now she wanted them to grow in their youth and see them getting highest degrees, then earn and become successful, get good posts and see them getting married and see them becoming father and mother- Alas! Pearl dreams that broke into pieces.

For her elder son she always dreamt of seeing him ruling- ah! My mother, foolish in love, did you knew, you can see that day?, see him getting married. She even has searched names for her grand children. When her children grew of age where they were about to get settled in their life and give a little gift to their mother, which she dreamt from years for them till they grew as men and lady. Now the time was she watching them becoming successful, earn good, get married and have children. Now, their children were of the age where they had grown up looking at the beautiful piece of creation that god has ever created on earth, mother- a priceless emotional creature. Now they were ready to serve her what she always dreamt of. She always use to tell them, “do what you love to do, enjoy and what makes you happy, that will make me happy and feel loved”. When they were about to start, mother was diagnosed with cancer-how and what to write about it, what happened to dreams…!

They never cried because they had belief that mother can’t die though knowing she had cancer- last stage sarcoma. But we let her live like as if she never was diagnosed with cruelest disease. She never let cancer to win, she continued her work same way as she use to do before- A lady with armor, a lady with courage of warrior, a lady with elegance, a woman with class. She wanted to see her son getting married before she will return.

They found one girl for their son, which he like and introduced to her family and mother-who didn’t last. The talks between families started, preparation for marriage started etc. Against all odds marriage was finally fixed, listening to which mother got so happy as if more years of life were awarded to her- ah! Mother.

Now few days left for marriage of her wee adorable creatures that is grown as a young man. Now the date came close and mother was happy. Before she could say how she is feeling, God sent his angel to call her back. Mother couldn’t even see her first son getting married. Three days before the date fixed for her son’s marriage, she left him when he needed her most. She taught him meaning of first love and she taught him what separation means, how strong is first love and pain of separation. Three days mother couldn’t wait and see her son getting married. She is the mother who didn’t last for even few days to see first happiness entering their door which she dreamt of more than her son. A gardener, who throughout years watered, fertilized, fed, protected her garden from every storm, sun and bad days, when time came to enjoy the beauty of the garden, gardener is gone back leaving a hole in hearts of flowers.

I miss you and will miss you Mother-who didn’t last.
