Taliban ….Allah Allah 😦 ……….so goes the song fromthe movie Appu. But now we have to despair and call out to Allah ……cause the Taliban are slowly taking over Bangalore. A city which represents the most progressive values of India ………..is now crumbling. I never thought Bangalore would go the Kabul way.
In the last one week ……….in three seperate incidents across the city …women have been attacked in public places. These women were wearing western attire and were supposedly ‘outsiders’ (read non-Kannadigas). In one of these places the incident happened at a traffic signal and none of the other public reacted. The police did not lodge a complaint readily and the government is mum over these incidents.
It worries me to think that the government is hand in glove with it. I dread the day when Karnataka would go the Gujarat way and there would be wide spread violence and genocide against women, non-kannadigas, muslims, christians etc. Shouldn’t we vote the BJP government out of power? Yes we should. This is the simplest way we can ensure that the values which Karnataka has always represented of tolerance, progress, culture …..are retained and we don’t get Talibanised.
And we should get together more and more and represent a united force against these forces of conservatism and hooligany.
