    Should the moral police be made to shut shop, for ever?

    After the BJP has come to power, it has encouraged its various outfits to go all out to destroy peace and harmony, almost everywhere in India.

    One of its outfits, goes about with thalis on hand, and in groups of at least one hundred people, after young boys and girls, showing sort of affection on 14th of February every year, and ordering them to quietly go home. If they resist ( as most do), they are compulsorily made to get married, on the spot!!

    This utter nonsense has spread even to Kerala. Showing affection to each other, particularly among those who are already in love, is quite natural. No one, including the courts, has any right to intervene. As long as such feelings are quiet, and not disturbing peace, the BJP outfits have no right to intervene and tell them to behave the way they would order them to.

    What to dress, what to eat, what not to eat, and how to fall in love, are all matters of individual choice. If a Hindu girl marries a Muslim, and gets converted, it is her will, as long as she is a major. The BJP outfit better shut up and stay quiet.

    These "cultural guardians should be banned for ever. The sooner this is done, the better.

    What I feel that when moral policing is enforced for a good cause or for bringing awareness in the society, that must be welcomed. Valentine day is the imported culture and for every lover, he or she is adorable every time and there need not be a day dedicated to express the love and that too in public. No body is against love making and that should be concealed and inside four walls. That is where the moral policing come into force. When the youth goes over board and try to vitiate atmosphere and induce others to format them, then there is a necessity to control the love making in public. Police are not controlling and hence some people formed as group does moral policing on the matter. And here parents are also to be blamed. If the cannot control their children, they are bound to be caught by the moral police brigade and that should be shame situation for all.

    How come the BJP is responsible for these nuisances in the society?

    During the recent trends we are witnessing few of the activities wherein the BJP is said to be involved directly. But surprisingly, the media and the believers who are making this on air don't have proof & are just working on some assumptions. This is not right.

    There are presumed assumptions for which the RSS is blamed but again no proof. And for all these the mastermind declared as the PM & RSS chief. How come these are blamed but without proof with them?

    I make an objection here or come up with proof to be in the healthy discussion.

    Ved you are right. When ever moral policing topic is raised, the blame game goes to RSS, Bajrang dal and BJP. In fact some outward elements are doing this to blame those three.

    Ved Sir, one Bhajrang Dal chief, was arrested two years ago. I do not remember his name, but this came about after violence in Mangalore. He was let on bail.

    Kindly google to check his name. It was condemned all over. This guy has a tendency to always open his mouth on all matters very personal. Of course, am not blaming the BJP alone, but the incidents have happened only because of some characters associated with their sister outfits. Of course, I do not remember this fellow's name. He always seemed like a local bully.

    This tendency to interfere with personal affairs goes against the fundamental rights of the Indian citizen. What can be done here, Sir?

    Moral policing exists in all societies. I personally feel that it is to some extent necessary. Because I know that attaining eighteen years of age does not automatically imply maturity. Age is only a number and it does not have a direct relationship with maturity and thinking ability. So, proper and sometimes strict guidance is necessary for both males and females.

    However, whenever moral policing is discussed, Hindu organizations are blamed, although, in actuality, it is much more prevalent in other societies in India.

    Non-violence is the greatest Dharma; So too is all righteous violence.

    This particular Forum post says: ''What to dress, what to eat, what not to eat, and how to fall in love, are all matters of individual choice. If a Hindu girl marries a Muslim, and gets converted, it is her will, as long as she is a major. ''- Did the author utter the same words when Ankit Saxena was brutally murdered at Raghivir Nagar by the father, uncle and 16 year old younger brother of his Muslim girlfriend? I think, no.

    This type of selective silence, selective amnesia and selective condemnation make people more communally-sensitive. We must stop this.

    Protection of secularism is not the duty of only one community. Moral policing is not seen in Hindu community alone.

    Non-violence is the greatest Dharma; So too is all righteous violence.

    Moral policing, honor killings, inter-caste feuds would go on for a good number of years before it can be closed down in India. We have many different castes, traditions and a huge population who are swayed both by modern practice, freedom of expression and by traditional/religious vitures that are misused by vested interests.

    What we need in the law and order division to address these amicably and have repeated dialogues and discouragements from religious and political leaders. When this is done and the common public use some restraint as per the situation and the place, we can reduce the fallouts from such incidents.
