I know I will be getting some stick from the readers for the provoking title that I gave this piece. But, I urge everyone to first read the article and then comment as per their liking.
I want to clear out the fact that I am not supporting terrorist activities in any way or the other but the I am just comparing two activities i.e. terrorism and rape, which is at it’s all time high, the former not particularly in India but globally and the latter one….do I have to mention where ?
I cannot compare a positive activity with a negative one and say that it better to be associated with positive one because I can’t seen any good happening around me nowadays. So I have to compare between two negative ones and give my views accordingly.
Terrorism is a HEINOUS crime. It is aimed at a particular goal and to achieve it violent methods are resorted to and leads to loss of countless lives. I have no objection to the matter that it should be eradicated from the face of this planet instantly. But for sometime keeping aside the abrogating aspects, terrorism has a motto or a goal i.e. to revolt or change an existing system no matter what the means are.
Rape on the other hand is an equally atrocious crime as when compared to terrorism. But what makes it more beastly is that fact that there is no concrete motive behind the action of sexual assault. Rape can take place due to a very mild reason, such as being drunk or having sexual urges which one can’t control. Although one may argue that the above reason aren’t as mild as they sound but those reasons are nothing compared to the ideologies and maxim with which non state terrorist organizations work.
I am not saying killing civilians for a particular motto or goal, which terrorists are prone to do is justified on any ground but toying around with a person’s sexuality and that too due to some demulcent reason such as sexual frustration or due to high alcohol in the body system is not only unjustifiable but its an utter shame. I would say that there is no shame for fight for an ideology in which one believes in and wants to preserve it (although I reject the aspect of fighting with violent measures), but to commit a abomination such as rape is worse than any other crime in my book.
This article is the most negative piece which I have written till now. But, unfortunately the environment in which I am surviving isn’t providing me with any glimmer of hope. In my heart I am always hoping for a bright future and I pray that we all get out of this perilous times as soon as possible.
