First it was Shilpa Shetty and now it is Haneef Mohammed and Sanjay Dutt!
Shilpa Shetty became the upholder of Hindu tradition. Clad in provocative and sexy dresses, she became the icon of Indian Woman’s virtue. She put on a sugary and syrupy smile, flashed her eyes in innocence, and played the victim of racist comments.
Haneef Mohammed, for no achievement of his own, other than the fact that he is a cousin of two International Indian terrorists who failed miserably in blowing up an Airport in
Sanjay Dutt is another wrong hero. Yes, he acted as a sorta-Gandhian, but that does NOT absolve him of his crimes. Actually, I am happy that people are protesting. But I am sad that they are protesting for wrong motives. The people, that includes the media, the audience, the teenagers, the Indian Cinema Industry, have all protested against his conviction. Some of them want this hero to come out unscathed. I ask, what about so many others who are languishing in jails under POTA, TADA, etc? What about them? I wish these protestors protested against the laws that put innocent people in jail instead of concentrating on selfishly releasing just one of them out!
