By this time,you must have read the news that An American was killed by an isolated tribe in the sentinel Island of Andaman.Our sympathies and prayers are for the young boy and his family.
The sentinelese people resist any attempt by outsiders to reach them.They are also protected by the Indians laws where in, it is illegal to approach them,since the government wants to protect the tribe against outside diseases spreading to them and wiping out the entire tribe of 100- 200 people.( since these people have no immunity for diseases)
Andaman & Nicobar Islands is one of the union territories of India and are scattered group of islands in the bay of Bengal.
The Sentinelese people violently resist any contact with outsiders.
It is said that this young American wanted to reach this tribe to spread the Message of Jesus & Christianity and Love.
Now my point is who is correct & who is wrong ?
Is the tribe is correct in killing this young boy for reaching them (against their set of rules) ?
Is this young boy correct in reaching the tribe (against Indian laws) to spread the message since he believes in certain faith ?
Who is to Judge and what will be his or her Judgment ?
I remember the following quote….. that No body is wrong.
“Genuine tragedies in the world are not conflicts between the right & wrong.They are conflicts between two rights”. George Hegel
