Black Lives Matter: If we kill men...with whom will we live???

DR. RUCHIRA KHULLAR | June 13, 2020 12:31 PM

When you say, “Black Lives Matter” I stand alongside you.

When you say, “Asian Lives Matter” I stand alongside you.

When you say, “Preborn Lives Matter” I stand alongside you.

When you say, “All Lives Matter” I stand alongside you.

 NEW DELHI: But when you say, Black Lives Matter (or the others) MORE than the lives of police officers, you are wrong.

 

This is not a skin issue, but a sin issue. It doesn’t matter if you are black or white, criminal or cop, you need to stop making excuses for riotous behaviour. Stop blaming some people for the actions of others. Start taking responsibility for your own actions.

 

The people that are looting don’t care about black lives matter. They only care about themselves. They are in love with the man in the mirror. They are obsessed with self. They are self-entitled bullies that need to go to jail. If you dishonour your neighbour by hurting them or stealing from them, then you need to repent, and your repentance needs to be louder than your sin.

 

Spurgeon said, “There can be no peace between you and Christ while there is peace between you and your sin. You and your sins must separate, or you and your God will never come together.”

A person who has a hatred for another is guilty of murder in their heart.

A person who steals will go to Hell.

God sees it all and knows it all.

 

If you claim to be a human and you are involved in nonpeaceful protests you need to stop, repent, make things right, and truly become a member of the humanitarian system. There is hope for you today, but you must come clean and come to God on His terms.

 

That does not mean I don’t support the peaceful protestors who are fighting for what is right and what needs to be changed. In fact, it is possibly one of the better (if not best) ways to send out a signal to the governments and the people about the wrongs that have been done and sins that have been committed in the past. The black lives matter movement is not new in any way; it is not the first and will definitely not be the last. But through this revolutionary movement, people are trying to have their voices heard and demand change.

 

There is outrage. There is chaos. But there is also hope for a better future. A future that has no racial boundaries. Or for that matter, no boundaries based on discrimination of any form – gender, caste, age, sexual orientation, etc.

 

People back in our country are also voicing opinions and concerns over the George Floyd incident in the United States. But why are these people also not addressing issues that are lurking in the Indian society?

Why were we quiet when Akhlaq was lynched?

Why were we quiet when our own people refused meals cooked by Dalits?

Why were we quiet when the poor were walking millions of miles to go home while the privileged were banging plates?

 

Discrimination (in some form or the other) is present in all modern-day societies. In fact, it has become a way of life for many, which we seriously need to rethink. It is wondrous to see how people worldwide are coming out day after day and night after night, packing the streets in uncountable numbers, unmoved in the face of a pandemic, demanding equality and peace, and finally promoting “THE REAL CHANGE”.

THE DEAD CANNOT CRY OUT FOR JUSTICE: IT IS THE DUTY OF LIVING TO DO SO FOR THEM
