Bangalore Violence: Nuisance caused due to derogatory post on facebook defaming a community could have been dealt on the social media itself by the expression of dissent and a formal complaint at the cybercrime branch. But some elements of the society resorted to bring it to the streets. Mob gathered at the police station, whose complaint was heard, and immediate action was taken resulting in the arrest of the accused within a few hours. But as the mob was desperate to take law into their own hands, it turned violent and in no time it grew as strong as 2000.
Use of stones, sticks, iron rods, petrol bombs, kerosene, explosives by the wildly fierce mob shows it to be less of a riot and more of an act of terrorism. Be it Vandalizing the residence of MLA, setting a police station and its infrastructure on fire, destroying public property, assaulting, and attacking our policemen while injuring over 60 of them, the mob stopped at nothing. With nothing to resort to, the police opened fire to quell the mob.

In these vulnerable days, where the last rights of our loved ones are performed with less than 20 people, thousands of anti-nationals’ resort to violence against our frontline warriors. Things happen in the heat of the movement and its burnt is faced by a policeman on duty who is someone’s father, husband, brother, or friend.
2 of the 3 killed in the process of dispersing the mob were teenagers. We as responsible citizens should help our youth understand what’s right and wrong, instead of randomly posting the funniest papu-modi meme on any social media.
Also, just by disinvestment and privatization of PSU’s, announcement of policies and schemes that are full of gimmicks, the government cannot bring in the real change and uplift our country. The government needs to grow needs to gear up and address these blunders that occur at ground zero, enforce and empower the judiciary to make sure such things do not happen.
