Is something fundamentally wrong with us?!

Is pelting stones and destroying public property a sensible way to express anger for delayed response from the police to the bombing in Hyderabad's Holy Mecca Masjid? Aren't there many other important things, like volunteering in helping the wounded, to be taken care of?

I strongly feel that something is fundamentally wrong with us; the way we think, respond & act has to change. Ours is not a developed country to afford these unexpected losses, despite the all the problems we have.

The public destroying public property seems atleast reasonable. But this should not have happened. One year ago, as an aftermath to the natural & peaceful death of the great Kannada actor Dr. Raj Kumar the agitated mob in an attempt to express their gratitude and love smashed buildings, burned various automobiles (not only public transport) and what not. IT companies were the most affected in this. Ruining their buildings is something IT companies wont tolerate and I mention this specifically, as they are in one way helping our country to become developed.

Very recently, Leader of Dera Sachcha Sauda, Baba Gurmeet Ram Rahim Singh hurted the religious sentiments of Sikh community by posing as Guru Gobind Singh, the tenth Nanak. As a response, there were and still are violent protests going on in many places. Does violence serve the purpose?

Why do we resort for violence everytime, when there are many other important things to be done and many more ways in which the issues can be solved? The mentality has to change, and that change has to come from us, within us. Not everytime a Saviour comes to free us of our sins or a Mahatma comes to free us of our slavery!
