It has become a fashion now to abuse hindu gods. Every now and then, we came across such facebook/twitter posts, abusing our Hindu gods and goddesses. This time it’s, delhi university professor, Kedar Kumar Mandal, an Assistant professor at DU’s Dayal Singh College, who publicly abused Maa Durga on Facebook. Maa Durga is the “symbol of belief of crores of Hindus”. This kind of derogatory and objectionable remarks against her are intolerable. This is a deplorable attempt to hurt sentiments of hindu community.
The National Democratic Teachers’ Front (NDTF) Saturday registered a police complaint against him at the Lodhi Colony police station. It is beyond any doubts that these words of Kedar Mandal are absolutely unpardonable, punishable and have innumerable objections to it. Through this action he has not only enraged but also hurt the religious sentiments of crores of Hindus across the globe.
Maa Durga is the epitome of a true womanhood. She is the Mother of the entire Universe. She takes care of the created universe and protects all beings. When the beings fall in ignorance, she removes the veil of ignorance and uplifts her children from all miseries. Maa Durga is the nurturer, caregiver, protector and when necessary, the destroyer. She loves as fiercely as she hates. Maa Durga is the truest manifestation of Shakti and the core essence of the whole cosmos at its roots.
But, it is shameful for us that her name is associated in the most derrogatory manner that too in the very territory of a country whose existence in the world is primarily rooted in the tenets of its Dharma, the rich History, culture, heritage and values associated with it.
But, is the FIR against is just enough. There have been many cases in the past, many stupid and idiot creatures have tried to abuse our hindu gods and goddesses. But, till now, in any case no strict action has been taken under the law. Why these people are not getting punished by the law. How easily they are getting escaped after abusing our gods and goddesses.When we talk about other religions, we all know how quick actions had been taken, even by the government. But in our case, no police and no government had intervened yet. This is surely now intolerable. We, hindus, forget these incidents very easily, just after few days only. Thats why only, Mandal like people gets courage to write anything about our hindu gods and goddesses.
Mandal was a member of BJP ally Rashtriya Lok Samta Party till 2015, when he was removed from the party for speaking against the party president (As published in The Indian Express). Mandal is an educationist. It is quite predictable from this act that kind of knowledge he is providing to the future generation of our country. He’s playing with the future of our country by misinterpreting the religious contexts in the most impractical, pointless and senseless way. Only god knows what this evil mind preaches to the young citizens of India behind the closed doors of his classroom.
In our country, every citizen enjoys the right to freedom of speech. But, now because of these kind of incidents, it becomes the need of hour to amend this right with some clauses to save our country and religion from this kind of disgrace.
During this Navratri, I would like to appeal to all hindus to get unite against this, spread this matter on all public forums, and force the authorities to listen our voices and take strict action against Kedar Mandal and he will pay for his unpardonable act.
