A Quick Note about the Wisconsin shootings

I’m not one to comment on politics. But events such as the Wisconsin shootings disturb the mind and make you ask questions that sometimes you do not want the answer to.

The questions that I’d like to ask but perhaps do not want the answer to are –

  1. Why attack religion? Religion is sacrosanct. People take a day out of the week to spend with their families and friends. Besides, isn’t Sunday God’s day in nearly every religion?
  2. Why attack Sikhs? Do you understand who they are and where they come from? Do you understand their philosophy? Most importantly, do you understand that they are not the perpetrators of violence that you are fighting on foreign shores?

I hope to not get the answers to these questions. I just want them, who act violently, to think about these questions.
