    If you can do it on a regular basis, turning the other cheek is a really valuable trait.


    However, when your hormone levels are at their highest and you're fighting to suppress impulses, a small provocation or nudge might easily break anyone's self-control.


    This is how I interpret some of the recent events in the country.


    When I mention some of the incidents, I don't imply that burnings and looting are included.


    Protests in various parts of the country were completely peaceful for three weeks.


    Then there's the question of how it became something else.


    The triggering point was some unwanted people turning up with improvised arms and beating up protesters trying to protect their grounds.




    To add insult to injury, authorities who were expected to ensure law and order were preserved at all costs did so by turning a blind eye or siding with armed mercenaries sent by politicians.




    When someone is attacked, no reasonable person will turn the other cheek.


    The survival instinct would take over instead.


    Is it possible that the protestors are being led into a trap?


    It's too early to say, but it's extremely probable that a few with other malicious motives and agendas have taken advantage of the situation.


    The best strategy is to stay put and keep nonviolent when different officials issue very contradicting comments on how to deal with the protest and protestors.


    Many things have changed as a result of the protest, and they should be considered a few feathers in the hat.




    However, the fundamental reason we all took to the streets has yet to be fully realized, and the nonviolent protest should continue until that goal is met.


    Many people would think twice about organising another disruptive group after seeing what the mercenaries’ got in response recently.


    The major issue right now is forcing uniformed personnel to use their weapons on unarmed and peaceful protestors.


    I am hopeful that sanity will prevail in everyone’s mind and that those who are in uniforms will think more than twice before adhering to a mass murder call.


    Those who have blood on their hands already don't mind getting more, but those who have clean hands must consider twice before doing something that their parents, children, and wives will be proud of in the end.


    Instead of turning the other cheek, utilize your common sense and sensibility to avoid similar situations now.


    In the end, let sanity and reasonableness triumph in everyone's thoughts.
