Disagreeing with views does not mean violence
HARISH DIDO | 13 Jan 2014

The attack on Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) reminds us Mahatama Gandhi who was against adopting the path of violence to register protest against anyone and it is too less even much condemned. In case, such activities are not curbed immediately then serious complications in the comings times could be seen which will be beyond one's control.

On last Wednesday, some people under the banner of Hindu Raksha Dal, had attacked on the office AAP in Ghaziabad showing resentment on the statements on Jammu and Kashmir by Prashant Bhushan and on Losrd Shiva by Kumar Vishwas.

It is certainly a matter of serious concern because no action is taken whenever such self-styled institutions resort to open violence. Not only this, even the political parties don't come forward against them openly. Bhartiya Janata Party (BJP) which talks about the welfare of Hindus, have condemned this incident of attack on AAP party office in a very casual way by saying that Prashant Bhushan should not have said like this.

At the same time, it is correct that BJP does not like the statement of Prashant Bhushan but his opinion about Kashmir and attack on AAP office by Hindu Raksha Dal are two different things. Despite awareness among the society, the anti-social and anti-national elements are still active.

In fact, their intention is to take back the society by raising one or the other issue in the name of culture and any opposition to their point of view is not acceptable to them. They want to stagnate the process of development in the country. Such parties become even active on Valentine’s Day in the name of any other party which gives air to the bad elements in other parties.

The person may be Prashant Bhushan or any other person of the country, he has the right to express his views but the way should be decent one acceptable to the society. We can move forward only after giving due respect to one’s view and coming out after a debate, a way acceptable to all.

Frankly speaking, simply sitting aside by listening and witnessing would not suffice; all Hindus organizations have to condemn the violence by any organization in the name of Hindu’s interests. This will encourage the other category people also to avoid their entry in them.
