India’s Backwards Needs A Better Avatar
(Maoists, Gandhi and Hollywood’s Avatar)
You are not in Hollywood’s Pandora . . . where James Cameron’s “Avatar” incarnated as a Na’vi to save the tribals from greed-driven brutal capitalists. You are in Mahatma Gandhi’s land of non-violence, where snakes and monkeys are gods and trees and women are goddesses, and yet where paramilitary forces can slice off a 25-year-old-woman’s breasts before butchering her and her elderly parents and chopping off three fingers from her 2-year-old toddler’s. Why?
Because, her parents were Maoist informers.
If so, why not present the case against them before a court?
Aren’t we a democracy, ruled by law?
Of course! We are the world’s largest democracy,
but who fights a war with democratic niceties?
What? . . . Is India at war?
Why else would anyone blast a bus carrying 12 Special Officers 20-feet up in the air with sophisticated explosives? Does that sound like a law-and-order problem to you? Don’t you know that enemy nations have already trained and equipped a standing army of 10,000 insurgents into becoming brutal beasts? At least one more lakh (100,000) trained rebels are living as “normal” people. Justice is for humans, not animals. The bus had twice as many civilians as paramilitary officers. Had these heartless terrorists allowed civilians to get off the bus before blowing it up, we could have considered treating them with civilized justice. The Prime Minister knows what he is talking about when he says that these Hindus-turned-Maoists are a much greater internal security threat to our nation than the few Muslims-turned-Jihadists.
