Trap

The Lotus is the symbol of the BJP party in India.

In the Arabian nights there is the story of the fisherman and the Jinn, where fishes of 4 colours are magically cursed in a hidden palace lake that the jinn takes the fisherman to see and gifts him fish to take to the king.

Each colour fish was a person of a certain religion (I forget which ones specifically but it doesn’t matter).

The fisherman catches them and takes them to the king where they cry as they are cooked.

I can’t remember what happens next but I was thinking of this story when I drew this.

You can read this story here The Story of the Fisherman

Thank you for making it to the end
