Protests, Politics, Women in India: THEEK HAI???

A woman is potentially not safe in her mother’s womb, but we are here fighting for those who are “somehow allowed to born” by this patriarchal society. THEEK HAI

A woman, whom we always considered as the weakest element of the human society, whether in TV serials, or in movies or in novels, or every other goddamn it places, when our respective mothers was the happiest person in this universe when we born. At that time she had taken 57 dels of pain while the tolerable limit of pain for human body is 45 dels. Still it’s the women who are considered to be the weaker one. THEEK HAI?
A woman indeed is the prime victim of domestic violence in our country regardless of the conditions. She is being judged by her dressing sense. She is molested in public, teased in market. Still, THEEK HAI?

Tribal women are gang-raped by policemen and paramilitary forces, who indeed are supposed to protect their respect. THEEK HAI?

A woman is the prime victim of the social inequality and is perpetually asked to be confined to the home itself. She is forced to wear the MODEST dresses. The definition of this MODESTY though is not defined completely and uniquely. She is being harassed every time, everywhere for its different version of defination. THEEK HAI.

Our Khap panchayats recommends girl’s marriage age to be reduced to 15 years because they cannot reduce the rapes. THEEK HAI.

 These panchayats issue fatwa for the couples who decided to live together legally, in the name of “honour killing”. THEEK HAI.

Prime Minister of 125 crore people’s nation took it 8 days to address his countrymen, with a relatively emotionless speech when the entire nation was on a stake of protest. THEEK HAI.
He finished his statement with a ‘THEEK HAI” remark which technically overshadows his already insensitive speech. He was acting as if an automated robot is being programmed to deliver a message and then asks his masters if the execution was accomplished. THEEK HAI.

He claims to understand the pain and aggression people of the nation are enduring because he himself is a father of three daughters. Aah! Pity on him. In a parallel universe, one only needs mere common sense and empathy towards humanity to feel the THAT pain. THEEK HAI.

Our national congress president had no guts to face the people when they need her the most. All she could managed was to invite a group of 5 representatives(?) to her resident to converse over the topic. THEEK HAI.

Our Home Minister couldn’t even address properly to his people (countrymen) because he can’t go EVERYWHERE in the nation every time. THEEK HAI.
He indeed was way too busy in IMPRESSING the Russian Prime Minister rather than listening to the people who had elected him as their leader. Impressing a person who himself has been a pioneer in demolishing this kind of protests in his country. I can see how he wanted to reciprocate. THEEK HAI.
Our Home Minister  is the person who address the protesters as mob, mob as Maoists, Maoists as terrorist, and terrorists as Shri Hafeez ji. Atithi Devo Bhav. THEEK HAI.

Our Chief Minister had completed her duty by only dripping few tear droplets, blaming Police commissioner and launching a women helpline. THEEK HAI.

 A legend BJP woman leader had declared that girls as moving corpse, and here we are talking about sensitivity. THEEK HAI.
Congress President of Andhra had been caught on camera, redefining the definition of women's edition of liberty and freedom. THEEK HAI.

Arvind Kejriwal had jumped into the protest after 3 or 4 days, probably when he saw the potential political benefits of this issue. Baba Ramdev had again used his enticing ability to frame his supporters against the government. THEEK HAI.
Digvijay Singh blames Baba Ramdev and Arvind Kejriwal for politicizing this protest and motivating people to turn it into mob. Well, no one gives a heck over this person's statement, so why to waste another THEEK HAI?
Our so called Youth icon Rahul Gandhi had still in silent mode over this issue while he was the first to visit the agitating farmers in Greater Noida. I respect his sensitivity. Nevertheless, THEEK HAI.

Delhi Police had used lathis, water cannons and tear gases (expired) to scatter the so called mob. They  had run out of water during Chandani chowk fire extinguishing but they had enough water supply to scatter the people. THEEK HAI.

Few rowdy elements had hijacked the movement and turn it into a Police vs People war. Stones were pelted to the Policemen, public property was demolished and the whole issue was dramatically changed. THEEK HAI.

A constable was killed (not technically proved, yet) in all these movements. Police and Government are palying blamegame and dirty politics over it. THEEK HAI?

Loads of top politicians had attended the cop’s funeral but most of them hadn’t even had time to express their sentiments over Field Marshal Sam Manekshaw’s funeral, let alone attending it. THEEK HAI.

Nonetheless, even if the constable is not the victim of mob, does it means that there is no sensitivity for him, as being a human being. Can't we have moral compassion (at least) for the person who had lost because of our negligence? THEEK HAI?

 An FIR was lodged hurriedly against 8 random people in the charge of attempt to murder that constable even before autopsy report. Apparently they are seems to be framed at the first sight. As matter of fact, on an average, it’ll take atleast 1 month to lodge an FIR report for rape in Delhi (or in INDIA for that matter.), that’s too if political pressure is applied over the police. Efficiency of our Police Department is also THEEK HAI.

With the course of these 10 days, the girl was almost forgotten, the rapists were taken for granted and the entire protests had been apparently became a movement of confused peoples vs Govt vs Police. THEEK HAI.

Section 144 was imposed, Metro station were shut down. Traffic was blocked. THEEK HAI. 
Police Commissioner hadn’t even credible to take the responsibility of mistreating the innocents. THEEK HAI.

We are now fighting for the justice of this one girl while millions of females in our nation are the victims of daily injustice. THEEK HAI?

But before all these THEEK HAIs, we have got to decide that, does our attitude toward the society, towards the system, towards the humanity is THEEK HAI. Aren’t we all are prime reason for these entire social imbalance, somewhere, honestly. Are we THEEK HAI?
