Shame on You, Naveen Patnaik!

I wake up today morning to read this shocking news on Times of India – 38 days on, Patnaik govt admits nun’s rape. I was under the impression that Naveen Patnaik was one of the better politicians India has had, until this headline that is. A young Christian nun in Orissa was raped and paraded on the streets by Hindu fundamentalists. And more than a month for the govt to acknowledge that something of such magnituda happened. It is disgusting to say the least. The police could only stand and stare as such a heinous crime was committed right in front of their eyes. Christians in the state are living in a state of fear. Sangh Parivar and Bajrang Dal activists are out on a witch hunt for them. The state govt has so far been only a mute spectator.

After 38 long days, Patnaik commented that the rape was “shameful” and a “savage” act and “stringent action” would be taken against the culprits. Wasn’t the crime shameful or stringent for the last 38 days. And I am sure even after 24 hours since his comments, not one person would have been arrested. And what about the Central govt? Dr. Manmohan Singh is worried about the country’s image being tarnished because of the communal violence in the country, not about the innocent Christians who are being persecuted for no mistake of theirs. If the UPA govt calls itself “secular”, they take appropriate action against the Orissa govt. Central forces should be sent the state to maintain peace.

Apparently, as the poor nun was paraded along the streets, the self claimed ‘protectors’ of India’s culture were shouting “Bharat Matha Ki Jay”!! Is this what Bharat Matha should be proud about? The monsters who committed the atrocity should not just be killed, but tortured and burned alive. And these fanatic bastards are protesting the bombings in the county. What is the difference between the terrorists and the Sangh Parivar. Both are propogating violence in the name of religion. But any sane individual would think that nether Allah nor Ram in no way favor such fundamentalism. Why are Christians being targetted? So afr, as long as I know, we have been only working towards the betterment of the society. The maximum number of educational and health insitutions in the country have been set up by Christian organizations. What wrong have we done to the country and its people apart from serving?
