TORONTO: The Love of God creates Fear of God and Love and Respect for the People. It is only a matter of spiritually feeling, sensibly understanding and practically accepting the facts, realities and truth.

 The Love and Fear of God are two definite good signs to understand the nature and character of a person. Hardly few fortunate people in a community and society enjoy the blessing called The True Love & Fear of God.

 Only these God-Fearing Persons and all Good Human Beings are True Leaders and Lovers of People and dare challenge openly and fight fiercely the Most Powerful Tyrants and face courageously the Worst Toughest Times.

 They are blessed with the Strength & Vision to guide us properly and provide us protection, freedom, rights, equality, stability and prosperity. These are the persons we need, if we want to attain success, happiness and peace for all.

 No doubt the True Leaders are Law-Abiding People and Good Human Beings. They make and respect the law. This is how they serve and lead the people.

 Even if we don’t find such True Leaders, we must not lose hope and remain disappointed and depressed. The search for the right ones and the struggle for rights both must continue individually and collectively with determination, commitment and responsibility and with the motto: God Helps Those Who Help Themselves.

 Losing hope and blindly following and obeying the Devilish Leaders, who only serve their parties and focus on vested interests, is the worst crime committed against humanity. Unfortunately, we are committing this serious crime and playing with the fate and future of all related and connected to us---community, society and country.

 Indeed we keep repeating and committing the same grave mistake by trusting, voting, electing and allowing the wrong people, leaders and parties to serve and lead us. As a result, both the people and country keep suffering. The wrong people, leaders and parties keep  benefiting fully. 

 Those who promote, vote, elect and make the wrong people, leaders and parties powerful and keep crying for the rest of the time don’t understand or want to understand the simple fact that they cannot make the vampires drink milk instead of blood or make the cannibals eat grass instead of flesh.

  This thing will never happen but one thing will surely. The wrong leaders and parties will keep sucking blood of the people and make them eat not even grass but the filthiest garbage.

 I was going to the mall near my house when I saw a woman in her 80s standing in front of the mall with a banner: `Respect Parliament’. There were some youngsters as well with different banners including `Stop Deporting War Resisters’.

 The senior woman was braving the chilly weather but shivering and trembling with cold. They were trying to convey the message to the Immigration Minister Jason Kenney and his party, who happened to be in the Thorncliffe Park Drive locality’s banquet hall on February 13, 2010, to meet the people and answer their related questions.   

 The old lady’s condition and determination made me stop there. The security people were arguing with the protesters. I went to the lady and said: One important banner `Respect People’ is missing. If there is no respect for the people then you cannot expect respect for anything from all such leaders and parties, whether in power or not.”  

 She said: “Well, I belong to the other party.”

 I told her: “I am a journalist and stand for the people. If people had voted and elected true leaders with respect for the people, values and country then you or anyone else would not have been standing like this in the cold---shivering and trembling. Please do try to understand this and in future vote and elect only true leaders of your choice. People are suffering and paying dearly because of their own faults and decisions. Right people are the only choice we must make.”

 I have nothing against the Respected Honourable Immigration Minister Jason Kenney but it is my moral duty and responsibility to stand by the people for their freedom, rights, values and respect. 

 The approach and attitude of all leaders and parties towards the people and for the country must definitely change positively. Exploitation of the people in any form by anyone must stop. This can never be tolerated and would continue inviting protesters on the streets to attract attention of all those in the parliament.

 We cannot bear to see people and country suffering and leaders and parties enjoying and benefiting. To serve the people and country properly and truly, we need to wake up the CANADIAN in us. Are you ready to become True Canadian and join the search for People-Loving and God-Fearing Persons?
