What would you do if you hear an unpleasant or inappropriate piece of news? The first thing that may come to your mind is to post it in your social media because you want to express your opinions and drain out all your anger, disappointment. You may have seen many stories concerning incidents where people use the so-called hashtag as a motive to seek justice for the innocent. Moreover, you may even use the same hashtag or see such kinds of posts for more than a week. And then? What’s next? There is NOTHING we can do. 

Yes, there’s nothing we can do to help the needy rather than expressing our anger and disappointment through social media posts or stories. In case if you are wondering, I am referring to incidents like the Nirmala Panta case or the recent one- Driving Under Influence. When such incidents occur, our social media stories or posts get flooded with anger from people who want to give justice to the innocent victims but the fact is, such hype lasts for a few days and eventually fades away. This is because the general public stands helpless in front of the so-called "powerful ones" who hide their dark crimes beneath power and money. It feels miserable to know that our country dominates power and money over the lives of innocent victims.

As a youth of Nepal, the only thing we are able to do is to express our opinions, raise our voice through social media, share such incidents to let people know about the current situation and finally persuade them to stand up for the justice of the innocent victims. However, our views and opinions are limited to the post we share. Such incidents can continue as long as we don’t take strict action against them. We should all join hands to fight for justice and stand up for what’s wrong and what’s right. Instead of limiting our opinions to social media posts, we can come forward and take action for every wrong thing so that next time the innocents do not have to suffer. Let us all try to be the voice to the unheard.
