More equal justice for special few…

My dad told me two cases that happened in Nashik just a few days back. Not big ones, but so common that no one would even notice it.

Case 1 – A poor adivasi lady from some village was selling some tiny birds on the road for her bread and butter for the day. A police came, took her to the court, made her pay Rs. 200 fine.

Case 2 – Another villager was sitting in some government office, smoking bidi. It’s not allowed. He was taken to the court and made to pay fine!

Religious Integrity in India – Need of the Day

The other day I was reading about Savarkar.

When Savarkar wrote ‘Indian war of independence 1857’, he emphasized on Hindu-Muslim unity. He consciously accepted it, promoted it. He was 25 then. Later on when he was in Andaman, he studied Koran and found out fallacy about that thought (as per his thoughts. I’m not implying anything here).

One of the reasons is –

Islam does not allow its followers to accept the boundaries of Nation. It transcends beyond that. Their first and foremost faith lies towards their religion according to Koran. So true believers in Islam religion, naturally they put Islam before Nation. (Here Nation implies the Idea of Nation and not the actual Nation as such)
