4 cartoonists died. The vacancy is to be filled. This is what the ad stated.
Thank God, I am not a cartoonist. I am too bad at drawing. For this blog I wanted to draw a cartoon, imagine the picture.
A man sitting a heap of skulls, holding a japa mala of 9mm bullets, known as Bullet Baba, his face unknown to others as it remains covered. The hand that holds the mala rests on an AK47. He chants Om blood, Om bullet kills. Around his neck a garland of grenade. I was reported; a few days back a man went to him pleading for a solution for his problem. Baba moved his hands in the air and produced 3 bullets and a grenade; giving it to the man he said that his problems would be solved.
Until yesterday, I had not realized the fact that some Gods hate Hindus, some hate Muslim, some hate Christian. Even some of them hate cartoonists.
No prophet, no seer, no saint would have told that guns, swords and arms are provide a path to spirituality. I presume. If I am not fight then I have not understood them well enough. Or that could be the concept hundreds of years ago.
You know that new version or books, software and mobiles and various things keep on coming. Might be in the years the mind of the seers, the sants, prophets and spiritual leaders have been modified to a newer version to suit the new world.
So they drew the cartoons of some God or Prophet or whosoever it is. We have seen God not in reality but in different forms in pictures, in temples as shrines and idols, in paintings. So why cannot we see him in a cartoon form?
A few people entered in to the magazine office, may be their Prophet wanted to avenge as he was angry and the anger was mounted in the head of some shit-head. So they went into the office and showered fury of Prophet as rounds of bullet. Amazing.
I have never seen Prophet Muhammad with gun, or Jesus with a Knife. Of course we have seen Hindu god and Goddess with various weapons. Even Lord Krishna in Gita has said, it is not a sin to fight evil, so you should pick up weapon and fight.
People have their own understanding of these holy books. And that’s why may be they demolished the Babri Masjid. 2013 Burma anti-Muslim riots Monks killed. Bodo terrorists killing tribal people in Assam. Once Afghan Mujahideens used to fight for some reason and now for some other. ISIS. There are numerous examples.
No God ever wanted to kill people; the weapon they held was for the protection from evil daemons that reside within and outside. Human has developed so much, that he can decode the verse from ancient texts and make a different version of it. And in the name of God we fight people. How silly!
Wish problems could be solved using guns; mind would rot in the skull. And may be Gods will set themselves to fire seeing all this.
