Stop religious conversion

The Rashtriya Swamyamsevak Sangh (RSS) has converted more than 200 people from 57 families into Hinduism. The RSS and Bajrang Dal members prepared a list of all the ‘converts’ to get their voter IDs and Aadhaar cards made with their new names. The outfit has lured them by promising to get their ration cards made. They are saying that it is not conversion but “wapsi”. If that is so then will they ask Mukhtar Abbas Naqvi, Najma Heptulla and Shahnawaz Hussain to come back? It’s all pure mischief and must be nipped in the bud. They also call it purification. Why they are not taking steps to remove impurities in our milk, sweets, grains and in our systems of governance etc. It’s only a ploy to antagonize the minorities and strict action must be taken against persons promoting religious conversation.

Uber had flouted various norms which resulted into the rape of 27 year old finance executive by a driver in Delhi. Why can’t the government overhaul our transport system? Commuters must refrain from using cabs operating through apps when other option are available such as hiring taxis through the assistance of hotel. Young girls have a modern mindset but that does not mean that they should not exercise caution. Few years back, I hired a taxi from a bar located behind Taj hotel at Mumbai to my home. The driver was an elderly person wearing a skull cap.

I slept on the way and had kept briefcase next to me on the back seat. He had woken me up when my destination had arrived. I was surprised to notice that nobody had touched the briefcase which contained important documents and keys. However, things have changed drastically now. There has been a drastic deterioration of moral values in our society. The courts must take suo-moto cognizance and put such trouble makers behind the bars.

External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj had urged the centre to declare Bhagwad Gita as a national holy book. She may not be able to recite the “shlokas” of Ramayana any better than a semi literate village woman. She wanted her sister to win election, is it not selfishness? With the passage of time, we are noticing that the Modi government is not performing its work earnestly. The nation must give more prominence to skill development programme and its should enhance its manufacturing capability. I was more impressed by the speeches delivered by Nobel Peace Prize winners Kailash Satyarthi and Malala Yousafzai. They spoke after performing a lot of work. On the other hand, Modi is speaking without commensurate action to back up his spoken word.
