The Indian ‘Liberals’ a.k.a the Adarsh Liberals have today filed a PIL in the Supreme Court demanding the national flag be declared a dangerous weapon under the Indian Arms Act of 1959.
This comes in the wake of HRD Ministry’s decision to fly the tricolour on a large flagpole in every Central University – a decision that enraged, scared and scarred the liberals of all hues all over India.
“This decision will surely polarize the atmosphere further in this country,” tweeted a recently senior journalist.
“Actually, it will pole-rise India, Sir! :D” replied an irrepressible word player on Twitter.
Only this morning, the liberals were seen running helter-skelter fearing for their lives after a man waving the Indian tricolour was spotted at the India International Center where a seminar on “Injustice to Ishrat Jahan” was underway.
“I have not seen him but was told that not only was he waving the tricolour, he also started shouting “Vande Mataram” and that is when I was sure there was a nationalist terrorist amidst us and we were all going to die. Can you imagine the horror?” said a moon-faced media editor.
“What is this nuisance with the national flag? Do you know how dangerous it is? And to think all citizens old and young can carry it recklessly, you never know what could happen! This is much worse than US citizens being allowed to carry guns. The days of mass killings with the national flag are very much here,” said another sobbing activist lawyer.
Another freelance activist said that the national flag can poison the hearts and minds of people and demanded it be declared illegal under the UN Chemical weapons convention.
