Begging for your life.


Just saw a movie "Parzania" about the Godhra (Gujarat) riots. I had almost forgotten about the horror. In short, a train carrying Hindus was burnt by a Muslim mob. The Hindus retaliated with ten times more violence. The Gujarat government and the police actually supported and organized the butchering of Muslims. One picture said it all. A Muslim man begging for his life about to be butchered. How does it feel when a mob is upon you hungry for your blood? Do you fight back or beg for your life? Do you think that if you say something smart or funny they might spare you?
