Nearly a thousand years ago, a king murdered his close friend, just because words he shouted in anger were misinterpreted: It was Henry II, King of England, who shouted with rage, “Will no one rid me of this troublesome priest?” Four knights who felt it was a command, and not realizing it as an impulsive cry of frustration, between friends rode to the cathedral of Thomas Becket, killed him and brought back his head to the now grief-stricken king.

That is the deadly power of words!

"We all have to remember,“ says AdamaDieng, UNs Special Advisor on the Prevention of Genocide,    “that hate crimes are preceded by hate speech We have to bear in mind that words kill. Words kill as bullets."

He continues, “We allhave to remember that the genocide of the Tutsis in Rwanda started with hate speech!The Holocaust did not start with the gas chambers: It started long before with hate speech.

What we have been seeing in Myanmar against the Rohingya population started also with hate speech!

..And today what we are witnessing around this world with the rise of extremists, be it in Europe, be it in Asia, everywhere, when we see the growing number of neo-Nazi groups, neo-fascist groups, when we see the way migrants and refugees are being vilified, we need therefore to make every effort to address this hate speech!

“We have to bear in mind,” he continues, “that words kill. Words kill as bullets. That is why we need to make every effort to invest in education, to invest in youth, so that the next generation will understand the importance of living peacefully together.”

Hate speech needn’t be apparent, it needn’t be blatant words like, “Go and kill!” Henry II frustrated with his friend the Cardinal, must have wearily uttered those words, but to the four knights those were commands.

Today, our political leaders, because of strict laws utter clever, cunning, ‘hate speech’ without using words like ‘kill’ or ‘murder’ or ‘assault’ so they posture themselves and shout shrill rhetoric against a neighbouring country time and again.This is subtle hate speech, because those cries are taken by fringe elements and used against a community who share the same faith as those in the country to whom the clever leader’s speech is directed.

Or when clever laws are passed, bringing in religion as the criteria, we again hear ‘hate speech’!

Today, these leaders won’t stop, because hate speeches bring votes..

..but we can STOP!

STOP listening to them, especially as they keep reigniting old scenes of the Indo-Pak partition. Just ask, “Does this hate speech get me my roti, kapada or makhan?”

On your part, STOP making derogatory remarks about those who worship different, look different, or speak different and in your talks to your children, WhatsApp groups or friends circle, stop jokes that ridicule!

STOP hate speech, because ultimately millions, including we or our loved ones will die..!

And as he stood at the border, making faces and shouting slogans at the man across who was busy, not playing cricket, but minding his country, he heard a voice behind, “Come back, we’ve lost Delhi!”

“What? Impossible! I have been standing here and shouting and threatening that ex cricketer across the border, that should have got us Delhi!”

“We’ve lost Delhi!”

“Didn’t you push the people of one religion against the other while I was standing here and shouting at that man across the border?”

“I did!”

“Then what happened?”

“We still lost Delhi!”

“Didn’t you instigate people against those who were agitating against the CAA?”

“I did, but we still lost!”

“How much did that muffler man get?”

“Sixty-two seats!”

“That’s impossible, there are only seventy seats!Tell the people it was electronic machine rigging!”

“That is what the people always said!”

“So now agree with them!“

“It’s past all that, come let’s go, we’ve lost Delhi!”

“Are the people mad, we promised them majority rule, majority bullying, majority religion, what happened? What did they want?”

“Cheap electricity!”

“How do we do that?”

“Better education?”

“I don’t know anything about that!”

“Running water!”

“No idea how that’s done!”

“I know!”

“You know what?”

“That you don’t know!”

“I thought you knew!”

“I know how to push one religious group against another, and cheer you as you shout at that cricketer across the border!”

“You don’t know anything more?”

“No, nor do you! So come back..”

“Come back where?”

“Back to Delhi!”

“But Delhi is taken!”

“But we can do all the things we are doing, even while he…”

“Builds schools, gives cheaper electricity, starts hospitals…”

“And we?”

“Can call him names, make fun of his religious visits, and mock his muffler round his neck..”

“That sounds good. I’m good at doing that”

“Yes, I know, but the people of the country now want what Delhi is getting!”

“Then let me stay at the border and shout at that man on the other side!”

“Yes, I think you should keep doing that. There are still fools who are fooled by that.!”
