The right car and the wrong car

Buddhadeb Bhattacharjee's wife, Meera, is stopped on her way to work during the nationwide strike yesterday. She gets out of her car and is told she cannot go to work. Her reply:
I am on my way to office, I want to work today, I don’t think you have any right to stop those willing to work on a strike day.
The Leftist thugs then surround her car and begin "to thump on all sides." Then they find out who she is and let her go, with the leader of the mob confessing later that they had "stopped the wrong car." Read the full story here.

And note that the rest of us would not have got away with it. Our rights, routinely, are held hostage by both the Communist Left and the religious Right, as the state looks on approvingly. Can you hear the thumping?
