REJOINDERS

Modern savagery

The Milli Gazette Online

In ancient times warriors used to destroy all that came in their way. They were Barbarians who had no regard for human suffering and tried to crush the vanquished army in a way to almost annihilate them. Later on, civilised people introduced certain norms and tried to deal with vanquished army within the limits of those rules and regulations. In modern times, Geneva Convention guides us as how to deal with PoW's and people of the occupied territory. We have human rights organization and one is assured of the protection of his rights under the watchful eyes of these organisations which work either under UNO or NGOS.

It, therefore, is a matter of grave concern when people, supposedly enemy of a nation, are tortured not only physically but also mentally and emotionally. What is the point in bizarre methods of torture, hurting religious feelings, except mental depravity? One may not like a religion or even have strong reservations against religious practices, but even this does not give him the license to desecrate Holy Scriptures. Earlier wars were fought to expand the empire and for the sole purpose of loot and plunder. Everyone tried to conquer the country of rich and fertile lands. Is it not even today that wars are being fought for control over natural resources?
