After Cow Slaughter and Beef Ban and Rohit Vemula issues, Pawan Kalyan has took to twitter today to reveal his thoughts on Patriotism. He made some very interesting points.
“To whom Do I have to Prove my ‘PATRIOTISM’,
True ‘Patriotism will come into experience when an Individual or a Political party goes beyond caste, creed,class, religion,region , ethnic n linguistic differences. ‘Patriotism’ cannot be seen through as one Party’s perspective or ideals. The true meaning of ‘Patriotism’ is deeply rooted in Human values and it is holistic in nature. In democracy, differing with Ruling Party’s opinion or policy cannot be labelled as anti-national. Even if they want to take such extreme view about their opponents, first let them hear out.. with out stifling their voice, then take the needed action. In haste, if they take any action it will only backfire as it did..in the ‘JNTU’ students sedition case and it was proven that the tape was doctored. A simple evening to spend time with family and friends to watch a movie has been made into a ‘Testing Ground’ to prove one’s patriotism. Why not Political Parties start their meetings with National Anthem, why only cinemas? why not the highest offices in the country? Those who preach and enforce laws -Why don’t they lead us by example?? So they are ‘SIGN POSTS??’ And when I see all this it reminds me of American Economist ‘Thomas Sowell’s words: “Are we turning the law into a trap for honest people and bonanza for charlatans ?”
Tomorrow I will post about ‘AP- Special Status. JAI HIND!!” tweeted Pawan Kalyan a while ago.
