The slaugh­ter never ends

Post - - OPINION - (POST, T MARKANDAN Sil­ver­glen

WHAT a mur­der­ous na­tion we have be­come! Like cat­tle to an abat­toir, we slaugh­ter 50 peo­ple ev­ery day.

Words can­not de­scribe the sor­row, pain and the suf­fer­ing of the Phoenix fa­ther, Sa­gren Bur­ton Govin­d­samy, who came home from night shift only to find his en­tire fam­ily gone. Jane Govin­d­samy and her two daugh­ters, Den­isha and Rachelle, never sus­pected that dan­ger lurked in their home – a heart­less, cal­lous killer, ly­ing in wait for them.

You say that the al­leged killer was “a very Godly man” Septem­ber 26-30) but what Godly man would lie in wait for the vic­tims in their home and kill them all – one by one as they en­tered?

What man, what heart, what hands could plan and ex­e­cute some­thing so evil? What­ever the rea­son, it can­not jus­tify the triple mur­der that has shocked and sad­dened the com­mu­nity.

There is some­thing rot­ten in our In­dian com­mu­nity. We are al­ways point­ing fin­gers at oth­ers but we breed drug ad­dicts, rapists and mur­der­ers. Three coffins, lined up in front of the Faith Re­vival Church in Phoenix, bear tes­ti­mony to what is hap­pen­ing to our com­mu­nity. What are our re­li­gious lead­ers do­ing about the moral de­gen­er­a­tion in our com­mu­nity?
