Shiv Sena MP Sanjay Raut on Sunday (March 8) expressed his concern over the recent communal violence in northeast Delhi, which he called “inhuman dance of death”, saying even Yamraj, the god of death as per Hindu faith, would “quit” seeing the carnage.
In his Sunday column ‘Rokhthok’ in Sena mouthpiece Saamana, Raut said a new nationalism has born from a cruel religious hysteria that has risen from inhuman politics.
“Politics has lost humanity, from that politics rises cruel religious hysteria, and from that hysteria, a newfound nationalism is born. That nationalism is killing the country’s remaining people,” Raut wrote.
Describing the riots as “heart-wrenching”, Raut said even Yamraj would quit from his post if he sees this “dance of death”.
“The scene of the Delhi riots is heart-wrenching. Seeing the inhuman dance of death, Yamraj will also resign from his post. Innocent children of Hindus and Muslims became orphans. We are creating a new world of orphans,” the Rajya Sabha MP added.
The Shiv Sena had earlier questioned Home Minister Amit Shah’s absence during the riots in northeast Delhi, while the Saamana equated the communal violence with the anti-Sikh riots that Delhi witnessed in 1984.
“The world is on the brink of destruction due to fight over Hindutva, Atheism, Hindu-Muslim, Christian-Muslim. People are dying in communal riots. There are cries to save them in the name of God. But no Ishwar, no Allah, no Jesus rescues. People have to survive on their own strength. The governments, too, shut their doors in time of dire need,” said Raut.
