The name,Anna Hazare, got popular with the same Lokpal Bill issue which he wanted to be passed by the government, to curb down corruption in India and the same Lokpal Bill made him head a team called ‘ Team Anna’ and then differences of opinion made Arvind Kejriwal, a prominent Team Anna member split and launch his political party- the Aam Aadmi Party-a political solution to fight corruption in India and all this paced down the India Against Corruption Movement led by Anna.Now it seems like another key member Kiran Bedi has a difference of opinion with Anna.Hopefully,she sticks around with Anna. 🙂
The government,on the other hand, has not only been quite successful in curbing down the much-hyped ‘India Against Corruption Movement’ but has also successfully reduced the strength and impact of Anna and his Team.Kudos to the art of silence of our Prime Minister ‘Maun'(means silence in Hindi)mohan Singh,the India Against Corruption Movement slowly and yet steadily lost its leadership,pace,goal and ultimately the interest and support of usually reluctant to react- ‘Aam Aadmi'(common man). Well,the mystery remains unsolved if it was Team Anna itself or a clever brain of the Govt behind the sabotage of a world renowned movement led by Anna. 🙂
Look who is talking ? Should Mr Malik rather not sort out his country’s security issues where bomb blasts are a daily business before asking India to give security to Shah Rukh ? And is Hafiz Saeed,a terrorist, also a Pakistani Minister to offer people relocation assistance in Pakistan ?
Well, is it not astonishing to hear Shah Rukh Khan complain ? Is he not the actor who tops the charts of Bollywood Heroes since over a decade now (thanks to his fans ,majority of whom are logically non-Muslims)? Do his fans give a second thought about whom he prays before being his mad fans ? When has he been questioned for being a Muslim , in India(American airport is not in India where he was held) ? And whenever and if ever he has been targeted by political parties for ‘being Muslim’ ,is he the only Bollywood Star who has been targeted for political mileage (publicity stunt)? Even Amitabh Bachchan has been targeted for being a North Indian .
There is no denying that artists have been soft targets for Indian Political Leaders but this is not restricted to any religion or caste. This happened to Salman Rushdie,Ashis Nandy,Deepa Mehta,Tasleema Nasreen, Amitabh and Aamir and so many more. Is he the only one who has been targeted ? Then why making a fuss about it ? Bollywood actors have been respected by the Indian society regardless what religion they follow and what caste they belong to and Shah Rukh Khan himself is one of the biggest example of such respect and love.
Interestingly, the government of the Center or States do not take strict steps against these few hardliners who become the self-proclaimed saviour of religion and take decisions on behalf of the community. Should not art and literature be left out of political and vested interest and an artist or a thinker be allowed to express ? Well, that’s a tricky question to answer when it comes to religion because most of us identify ourselves on the basis of religion , caste and birthplace than as human beings, first . 🙂
Well,more than the ‘Islam’ and ‘Saffron’ promoted terrorism it is the regular Price Hike terrorism which is slowly yet steadily killing us, the ‘Aam Aadmi’.All thanks to the UPA II camp which is backing the price-hike terror in India . 🙁
Not only did she take a dip at Maha Kumbh but also seeked blessings from Naga Sadhus-Twitter star,popular for posting bold pictures of herself , Poonam Pandey made it to the news sites again with her snaps at the Allahabad , Maha Kumbh 2013.
After two Indian soldiers were killed and one of them was beheaded,India and Pakistan conflict on the Line Of Control has started.Pakistan alleges that Indian army had entered in Pakistan-occupied-Kashmir and killed one of Pakistani soldiers prior to the incident of Indian soldiers being brutally murdered and also denied any involvement.Amid statements from ministers from both the countries,the firing from both sides of the LOC has continued.’Aman Ki Asha’ the phrase which defined a fresh attempt by both the countries to improve relations with each other after the Kargil War has again suffered a major set back.
Urban India may not be taking these hate speeches made by political leaders against other religion,caste and state too seriously but is it the same with rural India where the literacy level is comparatively very low. It is not only easy to play vote bank politics by giving hate-speeches against specific communities and groups but also readily possible to provoke violence between groups.
Be it Raj Thackeray making speeches against Biharis or Akbaruddin Owaisi making speeches against Hindus,is their sole motive not vote-bank politics? With law in one pocket and few goons in other,there are several political leaders throughout the country who dare the unity of India and yet roam about freely,unquestioned and never accounted for.
