There was a time when people were scared maybe of no one but god. Be it any religion. Accept it, everyone used visit temples, mosques, gurudwaras, churches, etc. to seek salvation and purify themselves for any wrong deed committed. But since couple of years, I don’t think we any longer have fear of God! Yes, many scriptures and text say that we should not fear god since he is our guide and our friend. I guess we have taken it too seriously. Every day we commit a wrong deed/crime and we seek salvation. We spend crores of money for our salvation but not once for the ones who need it. Similarly, every religion’s text says that we should love each other and live in harmony. Are we actually doing that? I ask!
Fucking no! Hell no! What the hell are we doing? Even animals are much more civilized than us. Every day we hear about the acid attacks on women. Majority of these cases are of people in love be it one sided or a failed love. I mean what is the definition of love? Should it be demanded or forced? There was a time when love meant care and compassion. If your mother loves you less than your brother, will you throw acid on her? There is no statistics or analysis which can show us the cases of acid attacks in India. Only thing which is there is the AFSI http://www.asfi.in/ which has posted recent data but since previous years data is not available it is hard to confirm on the numbers of cases. Durga Prasad Shukla, a member of NGO Chhanv, said “Government data shows that there were 60 cases of acid attacks in the last two years but, according to our own survey, we found the number to be close to 256,”
There was a report in TOI in January this year. Government data on acid attacks point to patriarchal societies such as UP, Delhi, Punjab and Haryana—among states with worst sex ratios—accounting for most number of victims while those with greater role for women, such as the Northeast, having negligible number of such attacks. The data, collected for 2010, 2011 and 2012, assume significance in the light of the December 3 Supreme Court order, directing all states and union territories to frame rules on acid sale by March this year. While a total of 57 cases with 65 victims were recorded in 2010, in 2012 the figure jumped to 85 cases with 101 victims. Delhi, UP, Punjab, Haryana and Bihar together accounted for 53% of all victims. In fact, Delhi (31 victims) and UP (39 victims) alone accounted for 27% of all victims (264) in the country between 2010 and 2012.
New laws, ban of sale of acid, etc can only reduce this number. Those who have lost their mental state will find a new way in future. One should realize that a failed relationship or a girl saying no is not a slap on your ego. It is just a fucking simple “No”. If you are not scared of law, be afraid of your god.
If as an atheist, I can understand the nature of this universe, you too can right? But you don’t want to accept anything. Power and Money are two main factors we are fighting for but we forget that compassion and love are bigger and valuable assets. I am not saying or asking you to live in poverty and succumb to someone’s power. I am just asking you to be wise and give a thought. If anyone says anything about your god, you are ready to burn down the whole town but at the end you are also ready to burn a face without thinking what your god will say once you are done in this world….
Stop being an ass and accept the truth!
Think about it!!
What are we becoming?
