Maharashtra Sadan chapati row: A journey from tongue taste slavery to tongue lashing uproar
The news of some Members of Parliaments (MPs) turning hooligans on not finding the food tasty enough and force-feeding the served food to a Muslim catering supervisor, knowingly or unknowing, who was observing the Ramadan fast has left the nation in a bad taste.

It is a fit case for our journey from tongue taste slavery to tongue lashing freedom instead of making efforts to improve the services falling short of public expectations.

Instead of taking lessons from the incidence and apologizing for the unsavory act, a tongue lashing war has been allowed to erupt as an attack on a particular religious community's belief. The extreme groups are describing the incident as an 'attack on Muslim values' with a call to 'stand up, organize and unite against subjugation'. Some others have called it an 'unpardonable act' of 'criminal intimidation'.

However, the involved MPs and their leadership is still maintaining that the religious freedom of the minority community has not been encroached on and it has only brought to the fore the sloppy administration of the concerned department. Nothing substantially has happened despite an uproar in the parliament and outside, on the incident.

Many feel that it is an act of brazen hooliganism, intimidation and assault on the person on duty on the part of the concerned MPs. It is expected of the MPs to abide by the rule of the law and work as role models in public behavior.
