Are Indians listening?

I shuddered as I watched on the TV, news of people killed by their kith and kin.
What were they killed for?
For marrying the people they chose for themselves.
Where did the killings take place?
In Delhi, India's capital.
I feel that as a nation, we are hypocrites. On the one hand, we claim to have a grand civilization of thousands of years, and on the other hand, we commit all kinds of atrocities possible.
In the name of upholding traditions and customs which blatantly go against basic human rights, we have stopped practising what used to be the corner-stone of Indian values, sarvo jeevay dayaa or compassion for all.
Are Indians listening?

Fundamentalism never pays. Usually it ends in bloodbath. Hope, sense reigns in north India once again.

This honor killing is getting out of hand. Honestly it maes me wonder how parents can kill their own kith and kin. Its really appalling to hear and read about such things.

@ Christo 2069:
Thank you for visiting my blog. I personally think that those who have done it and are remorseless, should be hanged.

@ The Holy Lama:
True. What hurts me is that some sadists consider their family members to be their commodities, with no choice or decision of their own!
