My visit to my home town after a gap of five years gave me a jolt.
The beautiful building which housed the happy, harmonious and fun-loving, joint family members of a particular community was now a ruin.
It happened when a riot took place over a minor conflict between two communities.
This was an opportunity for the miscreants from both communities to kill, rape and loot property of each other.
Though ours was a peace-loving, compatible, harmonious locality, no one could save them from the fury of a mindless, faceless, frenzied mob.
What heinous crime a mob can do in the name of community and religion!
