I quite understand the need to "behave" and comply with the laws of the land, but non-complianceHappy New Year to you and your family too.
We all have to behave no matter we are.
Like in India right now with all the protest..tell me..isnt the public behaving? Nope!
They actually dare fight and beat up police men too and not willing to listen to their PM.
So its very natural for humans to misbehave and some strict laws should be there for crime prevention.
The recent case of the rape of Dr Priyanka..and the 4 rapist cum murderers got shot dead...I was glad justice was served though I do not rejoice the death of anyone be it saint or sinner.
I am sure a lot of people were happy with that decision of the police.
Some would have cheered for all I know.
So you see we only want others to "behave" but expect ourselves not to abide.
In a hot dry weather..the hijab in the Middle east protect's one from the sun and the hijab is only to be worn outside and not indoors at home or even work place.
Some might call anything a "damn garment" if they do not identify with it.
Just like how some view the sacred thread as not in line with their thinking and harm people wearing it.
See what I mean? If we have hatred for something and attached the "damn" adjective to it, it can translate as violence if not checked.
A hijab/abhaya is just made of cloth.
If one doesnt like it just dont wear it..its that simple.
Manu smirti is man written.
Geeta is from Lord Krishna(word of God)....its a lot of difference.
I am not glorifying KSA....it isnt as bad as the media paints it...thats the picture I get from my very reliable source.
should not entail "surgery". Apart from being a qualified professional, I also happen to be a law graduate. Punishment should be commensurate with the crime. Chopping of the hand for robbery is excessive. If this is the "strict law" you are talking about, I have nothing to say.
What the police did in Hyderabad should be condemned by any right-thinking public. This is what happened in the case of the French Revolution. However, what started as "instant justice" later got labelled as tyranny and the guillotines were working for 8 to 10 hours every day to chop off heads of anyone who was even falsely branded as a criminal. This was also used by the "powers that be" to get rid of their opponents. For the existence of a civilised society, it is absolutely essential that even the most dreaded criminals have the opportunity to defend themselves. Under the laws of our land, everyone is innocent unless proved guilty. If the police have unbridled powers, society as we come to know it will cease to exist. "Let a hundred guilty be acquited, but one innocent should not be convicted" - this statement is the guiding principle behind rules of procedure and evidence guiding our courts. You are, of course, not expected to be aware of it. Here the police acted as the judge, jury and the executioner. Of course, the jury concept is no longer prevalent in India. We have only the word of the police that the four accused were guilty. What even if one of them was innocent???
Having been in Kolkata (Calcutta) for nearly 5 decades, I am well aware of the fact that the hijab is not worn inside the house. The "damned things" was just an expression of personal revulsion by a group of Hindu women and they are entitled to it. This has nothing to do with hatred or violence. People go to places like Saudi to earn a lot of money and put up with a lot of inconveniences. Hence, you cannot say that who asked them to go to Saudi in the first place if they don't like wearing the hijab and the abaya.
"Not wear the hijab and the abaya if you don't like it"! Are you sure you got it right? A woman whose religion is not Islam is compelled to wear it in Saudi when outdoors. Please get your facts right!
I attended the Chinmaya Bala Vihar for years to learn the Bhagwad Gita. I am aware that the Bhagwad Gita was narrated by Lord Krishna to Arjuna. Even those who have never learnt the Bhagwad Gita are aware of it.
