Media, newspapers, television, and what not! The world is filled with ruckus and chaos. Mob killing man, men killing men, looks like we are back in history. People fighting and leaders enjoying. Pain and agony are everywhere. A part of India is burning while another part of India is shining.
Clear state of mismanagement. Mismanagement in terms of development. Just a week ago, the whole of India was set to get digital. Everyone was speaking about the famous and attractive digital India. Suddenly things changed. Things changed drastically. India is facing development differences. Few parts of India are underdeveloped, while other parts are extremely developed. Development is one of the side parameters of Dadri lynching.
Coming to the point, what happened in Dadri was a completely wrong act, and the police and the mob are responsible for that. But what are we doing? Aren’t we supposed to have few duties as a citizen of India. Shouldn’t we take care of unity and integrity?
The political parties are taking advantage of uneducated people and those who are illiterate in the name of vote bank politics. But what are we doing? We fight on social media when we smell that our neighbor is cooking beef. Incidentally, we go to a neighbor’s house and get it confirmed. The media knows that the Indian public likes this sort of news. It showcases you exactly what you like. They will bring experts from narcotics and food and health department to the big religious leaders.
It means they want to cover all the people from the scientific aspect (narcotics, food, and health) to the orthodox domain (religious leader). These interviews and furious statements made by political leaders fuel the sentiments of the illiterate citizen. During civil unrest, the role of media becomes crucial. Here is where they start to play the game. They know the country is in panic, so they will have a merry time and manipulate the information. Why does India want the leader of a ruling party to speak on the Dadri issue? I think they should take action first.
Technically and constitutionally speaking, civil unrest and police departments come under the state list, but the center has a supervisory role. Hence Central government is also responsible for that. Another point to be noted is the role of our air force. They knew it’s a sensitive issue, and they protected their personnel with due morality and respect.
I must say what the air force did was the job of the government to do. We find that number of hate speeches is increasing after this incident. The leaders are using all their communication skills and media, grabbing the opportunity to showcase it in ‘n’ number of ways. After all, they are a 24×7 news channel.
All the leaders, and our dear media, need to understand that India is a much-diversified nation. Diversification is its strength and weakness. So it’s in your hands. On the one hand, there is vote bank politics, and on the other hand, it is a question of religion that becomes more important than national integrity.
Media can do wonders with its technology like awareness programs rather than telecasting the same interviews 6 times a day. We as a citizen have to decide what to do. Leaders and media are trying to divide us directly or indirectly. Every damn statement has its meaning if you observe. Some of the other ruckuses follow every statement. The need of the hour is to keep aside religious sentiments and think about one united nation. Before taking a step towards digital India, we should have a campaign of united India.
