All this hype about the saint made me ponder that though we may not know whether the charges against him are valid or false or whether he is just being framed into some allegations, all this comes later, the major disaster is the foolishness of mass. On one hand, we say that let the law do the justice, on the other such huge mass gathering just to make sure that the saint is safe shows that we are taking the charge of the law. What is the need of courts then?
Calling this act as a Blind Faith or a True Devotion is a very tender topic to debate upon. To the person who has seen the worst days, someone coming up and give him a new, meaningful life- he will, of course, be a messenger or a guardian to him. But the question is, can we give any humanly figure on this earth a place of supremacy? Though not clearly asserted, the act of people clearly shows that to them the saint has no position less than a GOD. Now talking about GOD, it is again a controversial topic. Some are atheist, some are believers while others are agnostic, but if your belief takes you to the right path, causes you to be altruistic or if not that teaches you to at least stay indifferent and not cause harm to any other living creature by any means, may be physical, sentimental or emotional, then you are much better than all those followers who are ready to kill somebody for a saint.
Going to the religious side, if we talk about Sikhism- It has been clearly asserted by the last Sikh guru that after all the 10 gurus the last guru to them will be Guru Granth Sahib, no other saint, guru or sage is to be followed or given place of GOD: yet we see many people from the Sikh community following saints. This act really raises a question on the existence of Sikhism. I know this is a very strong assertion, but it is an undeniable fact. Well, actually it is not just a community, a huge sect of people from other religions also does the same.
Can you think of what kind of chaos can this mass gathering can lead to?
If the decision goes on the side of the saint, the huge gathering's gonna celebrate. If not the gathering will be grumbled.Either way will lead to a jam in the city. Now think of some cases as, what if the mass really damages the government properties which also include hospitals and colleges. What if someone is in a critical situation and needs an access to hospital as soon as possible but all that chaos is delaying it or in the worst case scenario, that person dies- who will be responsible?- Government, saint or public.
Also thinking of the situation a bit meticulously, what if some unfortunate incident like a rape case or a murder occurred in the houses who are at present shouting out that 'someone who touches the saint has to first go through them', will those still be supporting?
The fact is, let the law do its job. Around 1 lakh people have gathered, the strength is huge. I wonder are people so free or it is that their whole world revolves around the saints. No matter even if someone helps you in your darkest times, we still cannot exonerate anybody who is being accused of so many allegations. Abetting someone is a bigger crime. Afterall, saints though learned, are also humans and humans are bound to make mistakes. Creating a havoc and passing threatening statements is no less a crime than terrorism.
As I always believe, no other religion is greater than humanity, hence our acts should be such which are in favor of mankind at large. Sacrificing thousands for the sake of one is not an act of literate people.
