We say we’re the biggest democracy and we say we’re tolerant, but looking at the cases, can we really believe that? If we were tolerant enough, would Kiku Sharda, the comedian, be put in jail for mimicking someone who himself is a big joke? If we were tolerant enough, wouldn’t we have been fine with Aamir Khan’s ‘intolerant’ comments? A lot has already been written and talked about it already, so there’s no point writing more.
Here’s yet another story shared by Humans of Bombay which proves that we indeed are highly intolerant, and keeping aside all the religions, our only religion is to take offence. At least taking offence is something that binds the nation together – the one and only common thing among all the Indians. This is the story of a cartoonist, and her struggles for doing what she loves to do, and what shes’ good at doing.
