Majority rule or mob rule - India has to decide

Citizenship Amendment Act (CAA) was passed in both the houses of Indian Parliament, after majority of members voted in favour of the Act.

Immigrant issue started after partition of India in 1947. Several Prime Ministers in the past including Congress Prime Ministers wanted to regularize the citizenship in India , but they were not courageous enough to catch the bull by the horn.Now, Modi government has tackled the issue in a democratic way,

CAA was extensively discussed in both the houses of Parliament, highlighting the plus and minus of the issue and finally majority opinion prevailed. This is the democratic and only civilized way of taking decisions. In a healthy democracy and in orderly society, it is necessary that the majority opinion should be accepted gracefully by all concerned.

Unfortunately, some political parties and activists have wanted to defy the decision of the Parliament and have whipped up public agitation against CAA and inciting hatred and violence to convert the issue to one of bitter confrontation. This has resulted in huge violence and in the process, tarnishing the fair image of India as a progressive and forward looking nation in the eyes of the world.

Agitation which was supposed to have been started by the student community (obviously, number of them are politicians in the making), it has been taken over by a few political parties and section of activists and even section of media that are giving wide publicity to protests and not condemning the violence. It is very sad that breaking the public properties and setting fire to the police vehicles and police stations have been described and even justified by the opposition political parties and section of activists and media, as reflecting the anger of the people, which amount to justifying the violence and hooliganism.

In recent time, it is shocking to hear some of the opposition party leaders demanding that CAA issue should be taken to United Nations. Obviously, they do not seem to have any sense of proportion or care, while making such statement.

It appears that opposition political parties and some activists who could not defeat Mr.Modi in election, want to defeat him in street by encouraging violence. One gets an impression that they want to reap political benefits for themselves by creating situation of law and order problem and chaos.

India consist of more than 1300 million people.Number of those who are indulging in violence are a few hundreds. They are not representative gathering of Indian citizens and do not reflect the overall view in the countryman. However, a few hundreds of persons can disrupt the society and normal life by indulging in violent behaviour ,particularly in a country like India where there is no clear understanding about the limits of democracy. Freedom cannot be absolute to do anything but freedom has its limits. One cannot break public properties and call it freedom.

Matter of great concern is, that if mob violence would force the government to take decisions, then what will be future of India ?

Obviously, this is a critical situation and Government of India has to act very strongly using stick and carrot approach.

While the issue of CAA has to be explained to the people by the government, as suggested by Chief Justice of India, those who indulge in violence should not be allowed to go scot free.

India’s stability would be threatened, if mob psychology of forcing their will on the country would become a habit , as it now appears to be happening. Several projects have been stopped or suspended in India in recent past, due to public protest and agitation often supported by political parties and some activists, even though concerned authorities have carried out detailed investigation and approved the projects.

In many of such cases, state governments and some time central government have bowed to the will of the mob and in the process, India has lost many opportunities. This situation cannot be allowed to continue any longer.

There are millions of hard working people in India who silently carry on with their tasks and contribute to the country’s as well as their family welfare. They are watching the present scenario of mob forcing decisions with great concern. Vast country like India should not be allowed to be led by small group of violent prone protestors, hate mongers to force the course of events.

Government have great responsibility to put down the negative elements with all force at it’s command for the sake of long term stability and progress of India. This would not be against the spirit of democracy but in favour of protecting the democratic spirit as well as the image and tradition of democracy.

Both CAA and NRC are essential components of healthy nation..... more  
Mr. Venkataraman has very rightly pointed out all major issues. Some people have the habit of mixing economy at every action this govt takes. They want to divert matters while indulging in violence.

CAA is an important matter for migrants who have been reduced by persistent persecution in Islamic countries. It does not impact the Indian Muslims. But then why these Indian Muslims are creating violence and destroying public property. CAA is a simple logic and any illiterate also would understand. But factually, The Indian Muslims. majority of the, Some media Houses and defeated or soon to be defeated political parties do not want to understand.

The frustration of loosing election, Triple Talaaq, 370 removal through a smooth passage has frustrated them.

Secondly, why not NRC be implemented across India. Ask these guys, if any country can run without the documents. The present Govt has shown courage and boldness to call spade a spade. Infiltrators across Bangladesh and Pakistan borders have enter into every sphere of life and creating chaos on law and order situation. The so called minority is 18 % of 130 crore, Who can call them a minority by even UN definition? If Muslims are minority then Jains, Sikhs, Parsis do not even exist. They never indulge in violence. Rather they are foremost in economic contribution. On the other hand, the so called "peaceful minorities" have nullified all those gains as as they take away the lion share of all subsidies.

I stay near Mewat and see their gondaism and illegal Rohingyas menace day in day out. In these situations, Why should I not want NRC? Documentation is important and if we have these, why fear. And if we don't have, then we will surely resort to the kind of gundaism that we see these days. It's a direct indication of how many people have infiltrated amongst us! Someone is comparing India to Africa, let him compare India to Syria and Iraq and not Africa??? Would he like India to be like those countries. If yes, let them go there and thrive without the documents which this "Majority elected" Govt is asking. Danga wahan ja kar karo!

A very spiritual and peaceful Buddhist took to the arms. Why? Will US or EU allow these people without documents? They check even the undergarment of a particular community? why?

We have no problem if these people remain actually PEACEFUL and abide by law of the land but they first play a victim card and then implement their own personal law. If not, resort to loot, killing and violence. How far it can go?

In Bihar today, they vandalised a temple. Why??? What has a temple to do with CAA? Isn'e this Jihadism?

We have to strengthen the hands of out Govt to deal with the situation with firm hands. Whoever indulges in violence and rioting should be identified and asked to pay for the loss of public property in which my own taxes are involved. And further, each citizen of India must have the documents that proves he/she belongs to India like any developed country and not rioting country.

Jai Hind ! Vande Matram! more  
Can you type here what will happen when we inject this negative sentiments in large section of population : as they dont know if they will be in India or will be deported. What will happen to economy when a large section of population stop/curtail consumption ? In a country already facing a slowdown, how the GDP will be impacted? Can you also throw some light on cost of implementing CAA/NRC? Who will bear the cost ? Will it be additional burden on tax payers as cess ? Can our economy sustain additional burden on taxpayers , as consumption is already low? In a country with rampant corruption do you know how will the poor and not well do to people manage the demand for additional charges from officers to process the files ? WIll it not cause chaos ? Remember, India was not impacted by any slowdown , in 2008 and 2002 global slowdowns- Reason was a robust local consumption. Any attempt to thwart consumption will further slow the economy , causing more harm than good. The enthusiasm that government has shown on CAA , is also needed to revive the economy, stop unemployment and improve efficiency in delivery of public services. more  
Mr. N.S. Venkataraman is absolutely correct and few hundred people indulging in violence for their ulterior political motives cannot be allowed to defy the law duly passed by the parliament and to hold the country hostage. more  
Mr Venkatarman,
Are you really thinking, we have right time to do this kind of exercise. Infiltrators can find out easily by Intelligence unit and even they can easily identified by local police. No need of such exercise required to put everybody in queue again. One thing more, why Muslim not included into CAA, As Home minister said, NRC will come before 2024, those are not able to proof their citizenship as per parameter govt decided ,even majority people are not able to proof their citizenship, If I will ask you to submit your forefathers document before 1971 then you might not able to submit, so they can apply can through tribunal , why not muslim. This is secular state, not Hindu state.
I am also disagree with the people having perception that Modi govt is doing good, he do not know what to do to run a country . So we are going in dark era of economic condition and might reach as like African Countries. We are not getting handsome investment now a days. Only hype going on. more
