                 WILL GANDHIJI APPROVE THIS SACRIFICE AND THIS REWARD ?
 
 
It is shocking  to  learn that the Tamil Nadu (India) Chief Minister complimented the lady who sacrificed her  tongue  in fulfilment of her vow for  her party's victory in the recent state assembly elections in Tamil Nadu and the Chief Minister gave her a Government job.
 
Cutting the tongue is a barbarian practice, whatever may be the cause and such practice should not be encouraged. .  The Chief Minister ought to have dispproved the act strongly and ensure  that others would not follow such practice.
 
One fears  that someone else should not cut his/ her  hand or leg in the name of the Tamil Nadu Chief Minister with the idea of getting a  government job.

 

These are obnoxious practices in Gandhiji's India and obviously the country has moved far away from Gandhian concept of sacrifice.  Certainly, Gandhiji will not approve such sacrifice and such reward.

Certainly.

 

Gandhi would not have even thought about such barbaric acts from the part of activists and workers! His non-violence is all about the suffering of the self  by continuous fasting, silent protests that yields results for a common cause! People of Tamilnadu are soaked in the Dravidian culture of politics such as getting ablazed, or cutting their tongues, or parts of their bodies for their livelihood.

 

One thing these people do not realize is that if they gotta do such a painful effort for their livelihood, and it is for the same parties and governments they offer their support all the times.

 

Have you ever heard of a worker or activist of a national party(BJP or Congress) to take such a nasty, violent  step to gain anything from the government.
