So,this happened yesterday.
After having examined the never ending series of patients continuously for hours together at the morning OP. We were finally excused to pleasure our exhausted bodies with lunch.The hospital canteen being so routine as always.We decided to treat ourselves "biryani" at a nearby fancy restaurant.
We entered the restaurant being totally aloof of what was waiting for us ahead!
It had quiet the satisfying food it was famous for. Meanwhile,we found it strange to find, two "guys" rotating around our table.It happened more than twice,and that really made us feel weird.
We had to anyways get back to the hospital.
So,we quickly did our lunch,payed bills and we're on our way back to the parking,ONLY to have noticed these "guys"(mentioned earlier) looking eagerly for us to walk down past them.
Completely took us off guard!
One of two guys,
Tinted teeth,red mouth,gutka chewing,quiet the malnourished body.Comes on to me!!!and yells on the middle of the road!
He goes on like this-(very angry tone)
"Hey you!what's your name?!"
(And here am,"thinking in my mind",why the hell would he be event talking to me??!!!!)
I say-Excuse me!Is there a problem??
He yells at me!"what is your bloody fucking name?!"
His tone gets me on my nerves and this time!
I wanted to give it back.
I said,"who the bloody fucking hell are you to ask me that!?"
Looks like,I agitated him.
And he doesn't stop there!
"You are a Muslim,how shameless are you to be moving around with a guy like this!"he says pushing my colleague back!
Being the person am,it took no time for me to snap at him right away!My anger knew no bounds at that time(not that I can express,I was rrrrreallly scared though,within!)
I shouted back,saying "Who the hell are you to question me?!!!Trying to be my brother??You are not even family! What gives you the authority to question me??!
Ohk!you gotta problem with me,let's go to the Police!"
(20 men around me and noone makes a move!and I,stand here being yelled,and uselessly shouting back at this piece of crap that he is,making me wonder why all these men around me forget their pride,in calling themselves a MAN. You can't even standup for a girl,whose fighting for herself,Do you really consider yourself to be one?!!
Now that I think of it,I wish,I could have asked them right on their faces.)
A 45-50yr old Muslim Man comes out of nowhere in the middle,
He starts by sushhhhing everyone around.
He turns towards the guy and asks him,
Do you know her?
The guy says, NO.
then goes asking,does she know you?
The guy says, NO.
Right at this point,when am finally thanking this old man for his wisdom,in my own head.
What's your problem with her then,he asked?
The guy said- am a Muslim.She is shamelessly moving around with a nonmuslim.Its becoz of girls like her the whole religion is getting spoilt!She wears a scarf and does things like this.I cant tolerate.
I could take that nolonger!
I stepped in,right into his face and said,
"Who the hell are you??What do you think of yourself!"
On this,the old came intervened,He broke all hell loose,when he said.
"Look she is young,she doesn't know what she doing.you got lotta time right?you came here just by following her right? Follow her home and tell her parents.They will do the best for her".
Having heard that coming from an elder person,who I few seconds ago,thought "wise"! Made me completely loose my faith in "logic","wisdom".He,once for all!proved me wrong to have believed him to be wise,though I knew he was a Muslim himself.
Whoever said,with age comes experience!
Hellooooo Mister!!!!"You are completely WRONG!"
Few brains never mature!
So obvious it was of me to ask this foolish old man,how was he even making sense??!!!
On this,he takes the guy to a corner,trying to calm the guy down I guess (but it looked more like,he was adding the fuel)
And seeing all the irrelevant, meaningless,coward nonsensical foolish people around.
We thought,it's better we just leave.
And started on our way.
Little did we knew,
That these guys were still following us,with the one sitting in the pillion seat was actually taking a video of us!
It was only when they overtook us,with the guy shouting at me,"tum ch***** ho!"did we knew!
And now,there was no more thinking!Our next stop was Police Station.
Iff only,I had superpowers of jumping from one vehicle to the other,I would have definitely kicked the guts outta him.(Iff you knew me,you know I could do that!)
But,that being no close to reality,I replied! "Bade marad bante ho,ruk police station hai yaha saale".
On saying that,
They both vanished!
And now!We were trying to trace them.
Only to have realised that we already missed them.
You might have probably realized by now,that am the girl wearing the scarf(hijaab),and am a Muslim.And my colleague here,who came by with me,just to have a proper meal is a NONMuslim.
The guy who stopped me,was a Muslim,who regards his "being a Muslim morale" higher than being a human!
He had a problem,when he saw a Muslim girl having lunch with a NonMuslim.And,that was all it required to bring out the inhuman psychopath he was.He gave himself all the rights to question the girl,irrespective of the fact that it was never his business what-so-ever she does with her life! So,obvious-The old muslim man was of no help.Now that i think of it,might be iff he was sensible enough Or probably belonged to Non-Islamic religion would he had stopped the sequenced that followed to have happened.
Sitting awake all night,feeling helpless and miserable.
Waking up,to hear about the 4yr old (Muslim Girl) being raped in her own school (Islamic International School)
I can't help but ask!
Is religion really a boon??
Creating differences,encouraging discrimination(be it based on religion,caste,colour-is that the new way of being Kool?
Are there no real men out there,who would speak and stand for GOOD?
Are we really as free and independent,in this democratic country as we call it to be?
