A sick and communal SMS doing the rounds during this time of tragedy in Mumbai
Some SMS’ are doing the rounds in Mumbai and perhaps in other places too. Here is one, which was published in the Mumbai Mirror:
Don’t know where he is when you need him. We want him to go and save amchi Mumbai. Army, NSG commandoes are not marathi manoos….why should they fight and lay down their life for Mumbaikars.
The last line made my stomach churn. This proves that non- marathi people too have their share of communal people. And here is another SMS that the Times of India said that is “stood out from the rest.” What do they mean by saying that?
Where is Raj Thackeray and his “brave Sena”? Tell him that 200 NSG commandoes from Delhi (no marathi manoos, all south and north indians) have been sent to Mumbai to fight the terrorists so that he can sleep peacefully tonight in Shivaji Park. Please forward this so it finally reaches the coward bully.
These SMS’s prove that a hate campaign against Maharashtra and Maharashtrians is on. It is demeaning and disrespectful of the death of the local people (policemen, 14 of them) who gave up their life for this country. These sms have turned this issue sectarian. I say shame on all those people who forwarded this communal sms. I say the people who forwarded this are more communal that Raj T. Because Raj T has a motive to do all these things, he is a goonda politician, but if educated and so-called liberal people are doing this I say they are sick and the biggest hypocrites of us all. Raj T makes no bones about the fact that he is an extreme right politician, he is admitting that he wants preference for Maharashtrians, that he is sectarian and he has shown us that believes that violence is the answer. He is not a representative of the marathi people, that we Maharashtrians know. But who cares that he is not a representative of the marathi people? Certainly not people who are communal minded, and also not those who think their race is superior, who have always believed that they are superior. These people are the sickest of all, those who pretend or imagine themselves to be liberal. They don’t care that Raj Thackeray does not represent Maharashtrians!
To talk sectarian and communal at a time when our country is suffering they are talking of north indians and south indians!!
Sick!!! And Shame shame shame on them all!!!! And anyone who comments please note that not a single hate comment will be published here. (Update: Also please read my comment policy before posting your comments here)
Let these cowards come and face Raj Thackeray himself. Let them go to him and tell him to this face what they think of him. Let them target the men who work for him. Tell him, if you have any courage, all these things instead of sending cheap communal smses to divide our country. Please do not target the average Maharashtrian because it makes you a coward, communal and a bully.
Update: Please not that my anger in this post is not against those who could have sent this sms inadvertently, without thinking deeply on it. It is targeted towards those who have communal feelings. So chill.
