Once more there is an end to the violence. It is hoped that, this is a serious commitment to peace from the part of the political parties.
Politics of murder in Kannur: Until few days back rage and revenge reigned Kannur!! In a land were non-violence brought freedom from British Power, Politics has taken such a violent turn that people lost all sense of society. Traditionally people of this part of Malabar, are renowned for their hospitality. Have all those good manners died for good?
Don’t you see the mother’s tears? : How can one kill another human being for the reason that the other does not belong to his political following? In recent times nowhere else in India you can find so much political violence. Don’t you hear the cry of the dead man’s mother? Don’t you hear the cries of his destitute children? siblings?
It’s the Government’s responsibility : The state administration, due to clear political alignment with one of the political party’s does not demonstrate the political will to crush the violence. While the responsible chief minister of the state has embarked on a foreign tour, incessant political killing has destroyed many lives in this district of Kerala.
These were politicians too!! : Mahata Gandhi, Pandit Javarharlal Nehru, Sardar Vallabhai Patel, Maulana Abdul Kalam Azad, these were leaders of tremendous courage, honesty and forthrightness. They were leaders, whom people of India adored. If you follow their writings it can be seen that they have all failed or committed blunders at some point in their lives. However those blunders made them stronger and helped them become better leaders. They were always committed to peaceful means and non-violence. Their fight was with the British Empire, and they finally won.
History teaches us that nowhere else in the world a freedom struggle was fought with non-violence and with minimum blood shed. Today’s leaders are not role models. They have nothing good to teach the younger generation. They are taking to defense whenever they are blamed. Never they come out and say. “I am the sinner”, punish me.
Leaders open your eyes! : Political parties must restrain their members from committing more violence. All outstanding issues must be resolved through direct talks. Let us not loose any more valuable human life in Kannur. Kannur is nick named “Bihar of Kerala”. Political parties must not become the cause to bring such shame to the land.
A Forum has been opened in CalicutNet to discuss political violence in Kannur.
