MANDIR OR MASJID!

"Babri masjid" verdict is on cards and "communal harmony" is the buzzword that emanates in our surroundings.Newspapers, T.V. channels and all other sources of media are inundated by the slogans like....."INDIA IS A SECULAR COUNTRY"....."WE SHOULD MAINTAIN COMMUNAL HARMONY" and blah blah blah!!!But i guess we should try to find out answers of few simple question which goes....."WHATS GONNA CHANGE AFTER THE VERDICT"......"IS THE VERDICT GOING TO AFFECT OUR OWN LIFE".....

In theoretical sense nothing gonna change after the verdict and our life style would also remain the same...but in practical sense no Indian can deny the fact that the "babri masjid verdict" is in the back of his/her mind.why this paradox???And this is a million dollar question.

Even if you don't have a great idea about the Indian constitution then also you would remember the message of the preamble which goes as "WE, THE PEOPLE OF INDIA, having solemnly resolved to constitute India into a SOVEREIGN SOCIALIST SECULAR DEMOCRATIC REPUBLIC and to secure to all its citizens:

JUSTICE, social, economic and political;
LIBERTY of thought, expression, belief, faith and worship;
EQUALITY of status and of opportunity;
and to promote among them all
FRATERNITY assuring the dignity of the individual and the unity and integrity of the Nation;"

But then the question arises that in this SECULAR country how the babri masjid was demolished and till date no decision has come regarding the demolition??
AND THIS QUESTION IS ENOUGH TO SHOW HOW SECULAR INDIA IS????

So its better to leave this "secular rhetoric" for our politicians and try to find out the real solution to this grave problem.This time i am not going to point out at our politicians or policy makers.Its not their fault.Actually we have only elected them so its insane to criticize our own representatives.Still the question remains that who is responsible for this "NON SECULAR INDIA".......

And you may be surprised to note that the answer is the "educated Indians".....yeah really.....no doubt these days India has become a huge market and is boasting to become a super power in the near future....our G.D.P is going to touch a two digit mark and a great share of these credit goes to our "educated people".....but when it comes to communal harmony then there is hardly any difference between an educated citizen and a non-educated one....both behave in the same cynical manner.....

So after courts verdict how can we assume that there would be a communal harmony if its already absent there.....courts verdict is only an excuse, the fact is that we are going to fight anyway....

Today i read a piece of news on the front page of Times of India in which there was a story of a small village of karnataka where the Hindus donated for the renovation of an old Mosque.and this news gave me a spark that why cant we solve this babri masjid issue with mutual talk and it would be better that we Hindus should willingly build a mosque at the disputed land.Any way we are in majority in India with 80%of the population of Hindus so why cant we give a signal of real harmony to Muslims who are in minority and may be feeling unsecured in such sensitive scenario.In a family also its the responsibility of an elder brother to do a sacrifice(if you wish to call this a sacrifice).

thus this is the only way we can achieve the tag line of "SECULAR INDIA" and that word "COMMUNAL HARMONY" would prevail in true sense.otherwise posing for communal harmony is just a joke.....

hope this piece of writing might have ignited your mind......waiting for your comments/suggestions.....
