Fools multiply when wise people are silent.This quote is attributed to Nelson Mandela, who was the first President of South Africa. He was an anti-apartheid revolutionary and a philanthropist. He said that questioning is the fundamental right of the people. Whether a country is democratic or otherwise, the people should question the government for any wrong policies or acts.
The present-day society is witnessing many unlawful acts perpetrated by anti-social elements. The parties in power are indirectly encouraging such elements when it suits their political agenda. The authorities are also turning blind eye to such incidents. Hero worship is taking new dimensions and some people are becoming blind followers. They support their leader or the party irrespective of the merits of their policies or actions. The wise people in society should question the government without fear. When they keep silent with fear, fools and blind supporters multiply. In such a society there will be no harmony and peace.
