New Delhi: The Kerala authorities relaxed COVID-19 curbs to permit individuals to have fun Bakrid. Then again, the Uttar Pradesh authorities needed to take again its determination to permit Kanwar Yatra. What sort of secularism is that this?
Zee Information Editor-in-Chief Sudhir Chaudhary on Tuesday (July 20) questioned the double commonplace with regards to secularism in India.
When the structure of our nation got here into power in 1950, we have been promised that each citizen of this nation will get equal standing, irrespective of faith or caste. We have been promised that Holi, Diwali, Christmas and Eid can be accorded equal significance. However as we speak, after 71 years we’re once more elevating this query – Why are the principles completely different for Diwali and Eid in our nation?
The rules for the COVID pandemic dictate that crowds have to be prevented. Nonetheless, when the gang is “inexperienced” it’s allowed, whereas the state of affairs turns round when it’s “orange”.
The Supreme Court docket might have criticized the choice of the Kerala authorities, nevertheless it couldn’t keep the order. This occurred as a result of these exemptions got for July 18, 19 and 20. So, even when the court docket had put a keep on these guidelines as we speak, it might not have mattered a lot because it was already too late.
Had the Supreme Court docket, like within the case of Kanwar Yatra of Uttar Pradesh, proven urgency in Kerala’s case, the gang and the chance of an infection may have been prevented.
 On July 16, the Kerala authorities introduced leisure within the lockdown for Eid procuring. However this matter reached the Supreme Court docket after three days on July 19. The listening to on this case began solely after the principles of leisure have been already in place.
Then again, within the case of UP, the Yogi authorities had selected July 13 that Kanwar Yatra could be allowed within the state from July 25, however the very subsequent day on July 14, the Supreme Court docket took suo motu cognizance of it and requested the state to cancel the Yatra.
The federal government of Kerala bowed earlier than the enterprise organizations who demanded relaxations and forgot that at current the state tops the record of every day COVID instances in India. On July 19, about 30,000 new COVID sufferers have been present in India, out of which about 10 thousand instances have been from Kerala alone.
If such a call had been taken by the UP authorities, it might have been declared as a Hindu authorities by the opposition leaders, intellectuals and members of the “tukde-tukde” gang. Nonetheless, nothing of this type occurred within the case of Kerala.
At current, not simply in Kerala however throughout the nation, big crowds are gathering within the markets for Eid procuring. However this crowd will not be being seen by way of the identical lens with which the individuals who collect on the pageant of Diwali and Holi are seen.
The bitter fact is the governments that regard themselves because the custodians of secularism promote communalism and bask in minority appeasement.
