Markaj: Will religion based politics ever leave from roots of India?
Namaste! and I would be tagged a Hindu but if my greeting goes as "As-Salam-u-Alaikum", I will receive a series of comments with a common word 'markaj' in it.
Somewhere, someplace politics of India rests onto the shoulders of religion. Any party brave enough to lean on 'Hindu' will have to face riots caused by Muslims, at the same time if any 'leader' tries supporting maulana will have to face wrath of the nation. Having different ideologies is not a crime in India but acting upon becomes one of it. Let's talk about a certain 'Hot Topic' that is bringing TRP to most news channels on today's date.
'Markaz Nizamuddin' Muslim event which has no doubt vaporized all the efforts of 'lockdown'. This event was organized on 13-15 March 2020 during which the threat of COVID 19 prevailed. Around 2000 people were found staying in this event and 2100 foreigners visited India because of Tablighi Activities, they were from the USA, UK, Europe, etc. 24 positive cases and 7 deaths were reported because of this event. Now if someone thinks of 24 as a small digit than he/ she will be highly misled because these are confirmed cases who have been tracked down. The futuristic value still remains ambiguous.
This event might have been ignored and won't have got this much boost but this is India we are talking about wherein every person, every human being, every neighbor is judged upon what caste they belong to.
We care more about the caste of our friends rather than their occupation. Here we don't evaluate IQ but instead, focus more on which party supports whom. Here we don't care whether 'coronavirus' is knocking our doors or not, but surely will meet and discuss "O Man! these Muslims again proved to be anti-national".
The worst of all are those Muslim leaders who instead of aiding in tracking down the 'potential' patients are currently playing the game of tag!
India won't ever be able to fight against this pandemic because all of us are fighting alone! I can still view a group of 4-5 people going out for a walk and all the females of households enjoying each other's company like it's a pre-summer vacation. Common India!!! instead of discussing who did wrong, just follow the orders like the military is used to.
It is getting more humorous these days wherein we find famous maulana blaming Indian Govt for the Markaz and adding to it are those viral videos wherein we all could hear statements like "Allah will save us, everyone should come together for namaz". Praying to God is never an offense but triggering a storm of such rumors will be affecting not only common citizens but will create havoc for current medical staff who are trying to meet both ends with the increased number of cases.
So, instead of playing an eternal game of whose religion is great try saving each other's life by staying indoors and minimizing the contact with rumor mills.
