Moberrism

Moberrism- Yes you heard that right! It is Mob+Terrorism.

1.

a large crowd of people, especially one that is disorderly and intent on causing trouble or violence.

“a mob of protesters”

2.

NORTH AMERICAN

the Mafia or a similar criminal organization.

“he gambled at a time when the Mob ran gaming”

We as a Nation condemn and fight terrorism every day, but little do we realize that we have let mobs become a part of expressing ourselves. Each time in switch on the news or pick up a newspaper for a quick read there are at least two incidents of mob lynching.

From cow sympathizers to angry parents, all we can think now is mob terror. But I ask you, is this the message we want our children to learn and see? To answer with violence, to be heard with violence!

We are a nation of Mahatma Gandhi. He preached non violence. Have we forgotten him? Are our national heroes restricted to the history books? Even our army does not attack unless it has to retaliation to a previous attack. Have we lost all ethics?

Do we need violence to solve our issues? Torching the public buses, parks, roads etc… Are we not hindering our own progression, our own development?

Some people do not agree with a movies script, get a mob together and slap the director. Some people do not eat beef, hey just get a mob and kill a few people, as simple as that. Your child is unsafe, all you have to do is retaliate with violence and that will keep the children safe. We don’t even spare the foreigners who come to our country to study or get medical treatment.

We create new laws, but are we abiding by the general human laws in the process? How does an eye for an eye create a better world? I just do not understand it.

For a secular nation, for a nation known for its “tolerance” this is way too overwhelming. Burning posters, killing innocent people, killing cops, I mean is this what we have come to now?

People coming together is good, Having a similar thought process for a better society is good, but do we need violence and blood for it?

I am happy I am not a mother, I don’t have a child and I don’t fear what this world is heading to. We as a nation are in reverse gear. I really do not know when we will drive off the cliff. I just hope with time this is changed and it’s a better place for the young Indians.

  1. It’s futile to ask people who use “majboori ka naam Mahatma Gandhi” as a proverb of sorts, to give up violence in his name. Gandhi in our time serves only two purposes, either he is used by those at the helm to make sanctimonious jabbering about values & ideologies they themselves don’t believe in, or he is vilified by the hip youngsters who see Gandhi as an epitome of cowardice. Good article btw!
