Condemning condemnation

Condemning condemnation

July 13, 2013 at 9:21pm
I fail to understand what purpose condemnation statements serve. Mirwaiz umer farooq condemns the foiling of its scheduled programme on 13th july . I had been always refuting the claims of my friends that leaders are not put under house arrest on orders of government but they ask police to do so . I may not still agree with my friends over this. But the bitter fact is they offer themselves to police to keep them under house arrest . If one takes a preliminary look on statements of Mirwaiz umer farooq from past few days regarding 13th July ,things will become more clear. The popular mirwaiz few days ago breifs media about their program on martyrs day . He asks people to carry out processions towards Jamia masjid Srinagar ,which will further culminate at Martyrs graveyard. If one asks a lay man to tell what government will do on 13th of july ,his answer will be curfews and arrests. I hope mirwaiz will be also aware about it. To my dismay Mirwaiz sits in his cozy room with legs crossed and watching Geographic channel on 21 inch LCD tv hanging on wall. Meanwhile statements of mirwaiz in press bring authorities on toes and they direct police to put him under house arrest . A police party in a blue vehicle arrives at residence of mirwaiz ,they straight away went to his room where mirwaiz is too busy with his Geographic channel . A police officer informs mirwaiz about his house arrest . Mirwaiz in his aggressive and emotional tune tells police man omer abdullah is scared of Hurriyat . But police officer does not leave with out noticing a face of Mirwaiz brimming with happiness. After all mirwaiz has a day to rest ,to watch geo channel and work out at his gym . Without wasting any time mirwaiz asks his press Secretary to ring up the media organisations and inform them about my house arrest . Media organisations also keep in anticipation a space available for condemnation statement of leaders. Next day newspapers are full of condemnation statements by leaders on their house arrests. People like me after going through news papers feel sorry and curse the democratic India. Off late some of my friends made me to realize the truth , Mirwaiz could have averted the house arrest and gone into hiding . Instead of planing for next condemnation statement he should have devised a strategy to counter the move of government .
But unfortunately he remained glued to his TV set and waited for police party to arrive and put him under house arrest .
Next day mirwaiz issues another statement and condemns his own house arrest ,accuses government of being autocratic after they foiled his programme to visit maryrs grave yard . Thus newspapers publish another condemnation statement .
I wonder how long condemnation statements will be issued and what purpose they serve .
P:S: condemnation note was written to condemn the condemnation statement .
