Saluting Bilkis Bano

At times when you feel so proud of yourself you get lost in an aura of self praise blinded like an ostrich in a blissful oblivion time and again you hear of great people reminded of great deeds which shatters all myth.The extraordinary valor,courage and zeal of perceverence showed by Bilkis Bano a victim of the gory Gujarat riots seven years ago is truly inspirational.She with six other women were gang raped by a mob of fascist morons,Bilkis was pregnant at the time(cruel shit!) her 3 year old children was smashed in head and killed brutally.Bilkis after recovering from the incident went to a near by police station to register a complaint and she was foxed because of her ignorance.Thanks to the supreme court the investigation was moved to Mumbai this was all after the “modern day Neros” were waging a lost battle in saving the perpetrators of the carnage unleashed upon the innocent Muslims.The postmortem was shabby,heads were cut to prevent identification,chilly powders were thrown upon the body’s etc.After all the struggle 11 of the 14 have been sentenced to life thanks to the effort of Bilkis Bano.

For those who like me who had thought whether progressive thought has taken a beating in Gujarat this is a hope at the end of the tunnel.Ordinary people of Gujarat don’t even feel a sense of remorse for what they have done. Lets hope there is a future for secularism in Gujarat.
