COMMUNITY

At the Crossroads
Indians are becoming intolerant

On the eve of diamond jubilee celebration of Independence, it is disheartening to note that freedom of expression is at stake in the largest democracy of the world. Intolerance has occupied the minds of a few diehards and they have become arbiters, on their own, of social, political and religious concerns. It is in a way free for all to hurl abuses and throw missiles at unsuspecting persons whenever they find an opportunity to do so. A little bit of bitter comment does not go down their throats and they start belching out slogans and expletives. Emotion-surcharged climate is created to mislead the unwary and to win pseudo acclaim.
