Peace in the subcontinent... By Masood

30 December, 2013

I do not know for how long the ghosts of the Subcontinent's partition in 1947 will continue to haunt the poor and left out sections of Indian society. Whether it is the human tragedy of Bhagalpur of the 1980s, Bombay of the 90s, Gujarat of 2002 or Muzaffarnagar of 2013, one would find the same hatred to systematically attack and physically and economically destroy the Muslims. I wonder where the liberals, intellectuals and media have all disappeared? Earlier, they had all joined hands to protest against the gang rapes last December in Delhi. Can they not see what is happening in the so-called relief camps set up around Muzaffarnagar after the worst riots UP state has witnessed in decades? Thousands of families are staying in tents under open skies fighting the bitter cold winter.

The crude behaviour of political leaders and the ignorance of the media towards these unfortunate souls have played a major role in there being no effective effort made to settle the homeless people in their villages. It is time to bury the ghosts of the partition still haunting and targeting Indian Muslims. Pakistan, which was separated from British India based on the two-nation theory, could not hold as one country and was soon further divided. This division of Pakistan proved that no country can ever survive on religious hatred. This region needs to understand that the sooner we find peace the faster we can all move ahead in the world.
