Then 9/11 for the US and now 26/11 for India. The November 26 2008 terror attack on Mumbai – the financial capital hub of India shook the whole nation, “Both the enemy and goldmine are within you, search it not outside in vain.”
“Enough of shooting and counter shooting. Now is the time to touch the root.” and the pride of Mumbai city just went numb for 60-plus-hour of trauma, terror, horror ever witnessed in India and on the TV media screens beamed non-stop on a minute-to-minute coverage with all rage and outrage live. This bizarre act of terror killed and injured hundreds of innocent lives, including both Indian and foreign nationals – the trail of trauma, sorrow, and panic syndrome is to go a long way to be healed and forgotten. We pay our respectful homage. May the unity and brotherhood of humanity live long.
The Hard Facts – Condemn Terror, Not the Terrorists:
India is a country ruled, ruined and raped by a broad bandwidth of greedy politicians, all included irrespective of party affiliations and labels. When your own house is weak, even a bunch of trained potatoes or mosquitoes can come and attack you. It may be true that the terror attack is always by surprise.When your own house is divided and weak, even a bunch of trained potatoes or mosquitoes can come and attack you. But still can’t we see the failure of the minimal expectancy of our system there: Our honest, finest police officers fought affront and succumbed to the bullets of terrorist guys. Initially our police officers thought that they were fighting with some routine tough mafia gang or so. But it was too late, when they realized that they were fighting with the toughest internationally trained hardcore terrorists. Even though the National Security Guards force from Delhi arrived on the scene a bit late, they fought in full valour the terror war with 10 or so terrorists for almost 60 or 62 hours non-stop and ended the operation with all the terrorists killed except the lone terrorist captured alive. Of course, unlike the terrorists, our NSG commandos had the added responsibility of saving the citizens in their fight. A scene sprinkled with hundreds of innocent lives of men, women and children killed or injured; bloodshed, bullets, fires, explosions – a perfect terror and horror scene. It was a perfect scene of a rape of human psyche there.
Let our politicians and leaders stop preaching the bad patriotism in terms of religions, caste, color, class and also in terms of their so called classic rhetoric and histrionics – all just for their selfish and short term gains and survival.
Today, it’s truly a global world. So is the terrorism menace. We need a multidimensional, psychosocial humanitarian approach on a global level to tackle this issue.Erase the terrorism, not the terrorists for they are no different from our own brothers. ‘Bullet to the bullets’ is not the answer. We need to end the terror, it is never possible by the act of or by a mere killing of a few bundle of terrorists. We need to touch the root of the issue in a larger and broader perspective, and then mend or heal it. We need to repair and heal the broken threads of humanity. May not be an easy task, but it is not too late. Terrorists are no different from our own fellowmen. Erase the terrorism, not the terrorists for they are no different from our own brothers. A political solution alone is not enough. A multi-faceted approach is needed.
All the people have a stake and role in it. The fact is that the terrorists have no dirty religion there, they have only a clean mission, and they do it with best precision.Please don’t blame our politicians alone for it. Please don’t blame a particular religion alone for it. Don’t forget the reality that today the hands of our all religions and leaders or politicians across the globe are blood-stained. The fact is that the terrorists have no dirty religion there, they have only a clean mission; and they do it with best precision.
Our global political leaders, especially the leaders from the super power countries, need to unlearn and relearn of lot of things to bring the true peace and prosperity on this globe. Let us all facilitate to allow this globe and humanity towards emerging into its own natural course of evolution – and it’s bound to happen and nobody can stop it.
LONG LIVE OUR GLOBAL HUMANITY AND HARMONY.
