I was watching the news of struggle between militants and Iraqi soldiers and I realized how easy it is for us to paint the militants as villains. But have you ever wondered if a person is ready to take life of anyone or give his life, then he must be having some solid reasons behind it.
No, I am not favoring any militant. But you see, how easy it is for us to sit in our houses and announce one side in a war as wrong. On the other hand, those people believe in their cause so much that they don’t hesitate at all in sacrificing their lives. They are fighting because they believe that they are right. Its just that their right does not match with our right.
Understand this in this way. If you are standing against each other, then your rights will always be opposite. But that does not mean that the person against you is wrong.
All I want to say is that they differ in their thoughts, but saying that they are wrong/ bad people will be wrong. I don’t know what really prompts a person to fight a war, but I am sure its the same for a soldier as well as for a militant. The same person can be Bhagat Singh for some and Ajmal Kasab for others.
