Jag utha Shambu the BJP is on the winning streak
On December 6, 2017 Afrazul was hacked and then burnt alive allegedly by Shambu Lal Regar, who roped in his 14-year-old nephew to film the killing and ranted against "love jihad" and Islam.

Afrazul was the second of Hajizuddin's five children – three sons and two daughters. Over the last few years, Afrazul had managed to win contracts for himself and would arrange for labourers for civil work in Rajasthan. Shambu had allegedly called him on the pretext of showing him a place where a road was to be built and then attacked him. 

And lo! Five hundred and sixteen Indians within three days had donated around Rs 275,000 in three days in the account of Seeta Regar of Rajsamand by new-found well-wishers of Shambu Lal Regar aka Shambu Bhawani. However, Seeta's account has been frozen by the state government for the time being.

Shambu, a smalltime businessman from Rajsamand, who had to wrap up his business post demonitisation made it to the headlines after he shared a video of him murdering a Bengali Muslim labour contractor in the most gruesome way. The video recorded by his 14-year-old nephew, shocked India with his cruelty and hate dialogue, through which he tried justifying his act.

Shambu Bhawani Regar is the latest hero of the Saffron Brigade and a sizeable population of Indians who are seen painting Facebook pages with slogans like 'Jaag utha Shambhu", "Jai Shambhu Jai Mahakal". The fanatics are openly seeking support on Facebook groups. Posts like, "Bhabhi ji se mile hai. Agar aap chahey to Shambhu ji ki family ki madad kar saktey hai. Yeh raha bhabhi ji ka Union Bank account number (Met bhabhi ji, if you want to help Shambhu ji then this is her account number)." Many urged the Hindu society to donate anything between Rs 10 to any maximum amount that they could afford to help support the family of the accused.

What a shame and what a stark contrast! Some readers would still recall Junaid - the teenage boy who was stabbed to death in a Haryana bound train. His family was finding it difficult to arrange funds for their defense.

Are we not becoming a nation of ruthless criminals and brutal murderers and murderers?

Forget about the demented brain-washed marauders today, even the custodians of law and order are biting the same bullets. The latest example is that of a man who allegedly aimed his gun at a Congress leader in Chhindwara. The incident took place when Nath was about to board a chartered plane for Delhi, additional superintendent of police Neeraj Soni said. The constable Ratnesh Pawar allegedly took aim at Nath with his service rifle but the security guards of the nine-time MP from Chhindwara promptly overpowered him. Pawar was suspended and SP (city) asked to conduct an inquiry into the incident.

As the RSS / BJP juggernaut marches from one electoral victory to another, we the Indian citizens are finding it difficult to breathe air that could be free of poison of hate and vendetta.
