In another incident, a young man was shot dead in a case of so-called honour killing which should be renamed as ‘horror killing’. A Muslim boy and Hindu girl were married and were killed on their way home when they were back after registering their marriage. The perpetrators of violence won over the advocates of love by brute force.
Why is it that there is no place for love in our society? Why are the young people who are doing nothing but believing in their love for each other being penalised?
If you read these news snippets you will have sense of déjà vu as there is nothing new about them. They are similar to thousands of cases which occur across our country every week with half of them not even registered.
I always feel that those left behind suffer the most. Mourning for their loved ones who lost their lives for something so futile and for no fault of theirs. How do you get over such loss? I do hope the criminals who committed these dastardly acts are caught by law and suitably punished. At least they will not be able to harm another innocent life somewhere.
