The slogan, “Teer maro taan ke, Mullo ki g#*d pe“,” is deeply offensive and discriminatory. It is disturbing to see such hatred being spread during a time that is supposed to be about spreading love and happiness. Roughly translated it means, “Shoot the arrow with resolve, on the backside of Muslims (derogatory term used for Muslims).”

While it is easy to dismiss this incident as a one-off, it is crucial to acknowledge that such incidents are not isolated. This is particularly concerning given the current climate of religious and political tension in India.

As we celebrate festivals like Rang Panchami (Holi), let us remember the true spirit of the occasion – spreading love, joy, and unity. Let us reject hate and division, and strive towards building a society that is truly inclusive and accepting of all.
