When flags rule minds

This post is dedicated to all my brothers and sisters who lost their lives in communal and political riots.
This picture wouldn't have been out of your memories.Its one of the moments from the Gujarat riots where a person is seen to be pleading for his life.Its been almost 6 years now since the massacre and lets not dig it out,but its sad,really sad that people have still failed to learn lessons from what had happened.

The essence of humanity is not only constrained for the better living,but its the base of our existence and I fear the reverse process is much triggered now.Its sad that people forget everything when they take arms for flags and ideologies.Religion was for the betterment of humanity,for people to live in harmony,to follow their way of life to attain peace and find solace.But now its the most vigorous tool that can burn down a city,take 100s of lives and the wounds never heal.

Groups have been formed to put people with similar thoughts under a roof.Different groups are to work together to finally attain the goal of social equilibrium and harmony.Flags are to denote their ideology and their vision and to inspire people.But now groups find time to fight against each other.The one who needs to guard social justice happens to be the biggest terror.

Who is to be held responsible,no parties, no religious groups can ever be judged the sinner.Its the inertia within us that has bred this evil.We are happy within our homes,we are happy keeping mum;even if it happens to us,we dont know how to react Lets do something that can put our society back to track.Let our religions be no more an issue to trigger violence.Let our ideologies be never a tool to create conflicts.Let fraternity be not a word just printed in books.Let us put humanity far front of our ideologies and religions.Lets understand that we are first humans and then hindu or muslim.When someone is murdered out of this cause.lets not forget,we are not just killing a person,we are eradicating humanity.Hope it wont be too late before we open our eyes.
