When will we be totally free from all fears?Journalists at all levels are seemingly afraid of taking on the might of the establishment. Those who talk very bravely are either silenced or threatened with dire consequences. Even in Tamil Nadu, there are channels that are threatened to not care too much about how Opposition leaders target the highly corrupt Ministers of Tamil Nadu.
The climate of fear among the major minorities is rising day after day. Those who protest are being branded "anti-nationals" or "urban Naxals" and so on; on the eve of the Delhi Assembly elections, goondas of a political party enter a University run by a major minority community and beat the girl students there. JNU was attacked by some organized gangs.
The farmers who are protesting to protect their rights and to get the minimum guaranteed price for their crops are stopped at all levels and they are sought to be divided; one really does not know why the Indian National Congress and its leaders are not protesting by coming to the streets.
The key question is: when will we be totally free from all fear? Already Coronavirus has played havoc with our lives. Let us not have one more round of social conflicts to disturb our peace.
