The country is struggling with an epidemic but incidents of violence continue unabated. The recent violence at Palghar in Maharashtra is an example. Many people are trying to give this incident a communal colour, which can flare up the situation. The main reason for such incidents is rumour-mongering. We need to understand that sort of chaos indicates that our social and collective thinking is weak.

It is not appropriate to blame the police alone because from time to time policemen have also been victims of violence and those who attacked them got political protection. The entire system is at fault.
