November 17, 2012 has seen the day when one hate-monger breathed his last. It was certainly an indication of relief to the secular fabric of Indian democracy. This man was one of the few persons who had a pivotal role in demolition of Babri mosque of Ayodhya in the year 1992. But still, I owe to such persons that the more they propagate hatred, the more secular and resilient I had become.
In the year 1992 I was in class X, trying very hard to study and concentrate on my academic books and preparing for the Board Exams. But it was not easy to study those days, even in our most interior room of house, where I coped to study, it was just impossible because there was ear-deafening noise from nearby temple and mosques, although these were 2 km from our home and they were cursing in full volume of loudspeakers to opposite Gods and calling to their own Gods in the name of their religious fervour and to promise a brand new temple of Lord Ram in Ayodhya. Hindus started their bout of insanity from 5 am in morning to 11 pm in night and Musalmans held religious gatherings whole night, and they threw their each word to pierce one’s ear wholly.
I think religion is made for men and not for beast. Public at large should not fall prey to religious fanatics. Have you ever noticed that Allah never complained if His mosque is demolished, Hindu Gods never wept when their idols were crushed and laid down in the steps of mosques?
