Off with his head!

Apparently, M F Hussain has finally been booked for hurting public sentiment by showing goddess Saraswati in the nude in a painting. The BJP-VHP types will, no doubt, go up in arms once again. Protests are raging among Muslims across Europe and the rest of the world about the Prophet’s cartoons. It is usually par for the course for these protestors, whatever their religious denomination, to ask for the head of the offender. More often than not, there is nothing figurative about the demand. These otherwise very holy and pious people, even if no one else views them as such, take their protest to the streets, parading their wounded sensibilities and hurt sentiment, which, apparently, can be miraculously healed if the head of the offending party is served to them on a plate. Funny, I was thinking. These jokers believe they have the freedom to publicly demand death, nothing less, for the offender but are unwilling to extend the same freedom of speech to others. Hmm…

Hmm... tones of hypocrisy in everything we do... especially when it comes to things like these. It is really unbelievable how people can believe they deserve something others don't, and can still rampage around about equality!

pria: True, pria. Hypocrisy, intolerance and complete inability to laugh at ourselves. What I find most interesting, and funny, is how everyone seems to want to jump up and defend god. One would've thought that being god and all, s/he can take care of himsef/herself. :-) I think it's time for us to start worrying about ourselves.
