What haunts me everyday is the fear of cow! I believe in a concept that God may sacrifice himself to safe humanity. But what will happen, if we kill each other, to save God?
Does freedom mean living in fear?
Nowadays, I have to prove my patriotism every where (on social media, in conversation with friends, you name the place and I have to prove it). I have to struggle for my freedom, justify my freedom. Explain that it’s my right, hence I am doing this. I have to constantly watch over my shoulder.
Earlier, religion was not a topic of discussion among my friends but now this has changed. Religion is a burning topic now. Everything leads to religion. From what’s on my plate to what’s in my car.
I want freedom from these anti-religious ideologies. I want to explore India – travel around the country and soak in all that India has to offer but without fear.
Can I be given assurance of liberty, equality and fraternity? The same words that already appear in our Preamble?
