Being listed as Shahid has no meaning

This guy is some "SHAHID" whose stamp has been been published. Today I noticed him on my application form, I was surprised to see him as a National Martyr. Since the the value of the stamp was Npr 10, I thought he must be someone special but to ground reality I fail to recognize him in anyway. I hardly have seen him and being a journalist and a citizen of Nepal and not to recognize someone who did something for the country was a shame for me. But on contrary I don't know if he is GENUINE or not but he does not look familiar. Our Nepal government announces Martyrs every now and then. Announcing SHAHID is a political issue where anyone who dies and related to politics or any other social standing will be announced as a SHAHID. The question and value of a true SHAHID is lost and in such scenario the name and image of SHAHID has been redefined to the flexibility and feasibility of politics.

The true spirit and fire of doing something for the country has been shadowed, SHAHID has just been a word where you can see one in every locality with no substance and lack of meaning................

Our society is practicing the image of power and corrupted politics where due to lack of political culture there is no substance in anything. Even to be listed as SHAHID no meaning as you never know where your name will be listed with a murderer or corrupted person.
