An Argument of Ideology


India is a Land of diverse cultures based on Religion & Linguist… Though my Ideology favors my religion I look at the greater interest of my country… I’m not in favor of suppressing any religion nor be suppressed… But I was surprised to see someone in my age group who was Ideologically connected to my mother tongue…

Though he was cool & composed in argument unlike me… He was very strong in his belief… He has put his country behind his ideology… Though I was disturbed by that attitude it gave me more insights about effects of polarization done by some fringe elements…

Being a Tamalian I just pitied the case of Sri Lankan tamils and I assumed that was a micro affair because the loss of LTTE disn’t create a big impact on us… Also I was happy that there was no big issue created by Muslims when the Babri verdict was given…

I thought we have become mature as a country in spite of differences we have… But when someone close to me who wants to Leave this country because it is not doing anything to his men… He went to the fact telling he was willing to be a 3rd rated citizen in a foreign country than here…

His concerns are;

  • North Indians ignore death of fisherman by Sri Lankan navy because they are tamils.
  • Lots of Sri Lankan tamils are still tortured.
  • Lanka is in the verge of ethnic cleansing.

My only answer is I was never been treated like a 2nd class citizen by this country… Our home minister is a Tamilian… Infact for more than 2 decade Tamil Nadu had major chunk of portfolio in the Central Governments… Sri Lankan issue or Tamil Fisherman issue is not handled well must be accepted… But we must remember we have greater say in the central cabinet(DMK)… So, the truth is fellow are corrupt and they are not working for the cause of our brothers… If we ourselves ignore the cause of our own peopleĀ tamilians… It is not reasonable blaming someone who is not linked to us in terms of language…

Though I was not convinced by my friends argument… He was not in a mindset of accept mine either… So, we decided to stop this without any conclusion…

Moral: Changing ones ideology is a difficult task or it is impossible…
