Hanging, Porn and Asaram

Past few days have been heavy on head and heart as I try to make sense of what is happening in India.

Yakub Memon was hanged ironically on his own birthday. Guilty or not we could have given him 15 more days which the law suggest before declining of mercy petition by the president of India and hanging. Honestly I don’t know the exact role he played in 1993 Bombay blasts. All we heard during those days were about Dawood and Tiger Memon. Did Yakub Memon surrendered before Indian authorities or  was he trying to escape. I mean who knows ? Anyone who has any experience of getting a FIR done with our police knows what I mean.

Everyone has a opinion on whether Yakub was wrongly or rightly convicted and the role his religion played in his hanging.  Overnight twitter and FB were flooded by experts on1993 blasts, Babri Masjid Demolition etc. I feel it is pointless to have these discussions. We have very little information. Just too many emotions. Facts make everything cut and dry. Now Government has hanged a Muslim they need to hang a hindu  just to make it look like we don’t look at your religion before we do the hanging. And if they are looking for one they should look no further. The person can be found in text books listed as a great saint of India. You know who I’m talking about.

I feel that in a country like India the larger debate needs to be on capital punishment. I believe that the state should not have right to take a life. This is the land of Mahatma Gandhi. Just banning booze in Gujarat does’t mean anything.  But our country being our country quickly moved on to a more serious topic. We went ahead and banned porn after we have banned Ola, Maggi, Booze, Valentine’s day, Chowmein etc..

I feel we should finally go ahead and ban Onion and Garlic. They are the main culprit. Once these are out of our diet we can effectively hit two birds with same stone. Less children and more Yoga and Meditation. We can also hire Taliban to destroy Khajuraho temple and Konark Temple. And burn the bloody Kamasutra too.

One man who seriously needs to eat less Onion and Garlic is Asaram. Its shocking that he is listed as the great saints of India in 3rd standard textbooks in Rajasthan. This despite leaving trail of bodies in his trial of sexual assault and rape. Here a little bit of hanging won’t hurt.
