The world is full of people and people have opinions. While many of us are all praise for UP’s new Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath, many of us are critical of his strong decision making. Last week came another powerful decision by the government of setting an "Anti-Romeo squad" (a team of about 30 police officers) in the interest of safeguarding women. But guess things didn’t turn out well when the squad shaved the head of a guy in the presence of policemen who had caught him with a female friend in a public park in Shahjahanpur.
What’s worse is that this incident occurred in the presence of police officers. Prima facie say that the three constables namely Suhail Ahmed, Laiek Ahmed and Sonu Pal were being mute spectators and did nothing to stop the officers of the squad to stop shaving the head of the victim.
This does not end here – some men were even made to sqat in public and some were questioned why they are roaming in public with a female friend. Now the question that looms large in our face is – does the UP government went too far by moral policing? Or this crackdown on roadside romeos is just the need of the hour to protect women? Well, as they say, with great power comes great responsibility, and the newly elected government must ensure that the officers don’t harass the couples and target only the eve-teasers.
What’s your take on it? We would love to read your suggestions in the comments below.
