In the initial anguish reading about the terrorists strike in the heart of Mumbai, this is what i wrote on a common forum. Reproducing it here in full.
I wonder what is the difference between the terrorists who attacked the city of Bombay and the goons of Raj / Bal Thackeray who regularly kill, injure people and destroy property just to further their political agenda?
Why dont we feel the same pain and shame when a politician rouses communal fears and tries to divide us and makes us fight among ourselves?
What makes the Indian / Deccan Mujahideen / SIMI / Lashkar any more dangerous than home grown terror like the VHP, RSS, Shiv Sena, Maoists, the Christian fundamentalists in Eastern India?
Is Advani not responsible enough for all the violence we are facing today due to his role in the Babri Masjid demolition? Is the Congress not responsible for repeated miscarriage of justice by their pseudo secularism and pandering to the extremist muslims? Is Narendra Modi not responsible for the 1000s of muslims killed under his watch in the Gujarat riots? Is Congress not responsible for the thousands of Sikhs killed in 1984?
And then, why are we surprised that someone from our own country wants to kill his fellow countrymen? When he/she asked for justice as his house was being burnt, his sister was being raped, where were we? Why did we turn a blind eye?
All the miscarriages of justice is finally coming home to roost.
We will still bounce back and am sure of that. But is it this kind of a society that we want to live in?
Raj Thuggeray, the leader of Maharashtra Napunsak Sena (Maharashtra Eunuch’s Army) and the paper tiger leader of Shiv Sena, Balls Thuggeray are so busy setting up vada pav stalls that they have retreated into the kitchens of their houses. The bloody uncle and nephew team that has held Bombay to ransom over their petty anti-North Indian politics are nowhere to be seen. The NSG, Marine Commandos, RAF and Black Cats from other states of India have to come down to clean up the mess. How come the Thuggeray family is not complaining now? Bloody nincompoops.
Narendra Modi after lording over a state that recently was hit by more than 20 bomb blasts at various places tries to blame the central government saying that they are lenient. For all his show of bravado, i have never seen a bigger coward. In any other country, he would have been hung on a pole for being a mass murderer. Advani, the ever colour changing chameleon of Indian politics and the biggest terrorist India has ever produced is also busy fishing in troubled waters.
For all my respect for Manmohan Singh, i should admit that when it comes to internal security, he is the worst PM we ever had. Sorry Mr Singh, i appreciate your honesty, your work in finance and the Indo-US nuclear deal, but you are pathetic when it comes to the security of our country. It would be great if you could take your bloody incompetent Home Minister, Shivraj Patil (who might be busy at some clothes shop looking for the shirt to wear in the next press conference), your boss Sonia Gandhi and resign. Please do us a favour.
What about RAW (Research & Analysis Wing), IB (Intelligence Bureau), the spy agencies who were supposed to smell the conspiracy and nip it in the bud? We have another incompetent National Security Advisor in Narayanan. He is so bloody camera happy that he has no qualms shooting off his mouth on TV. Mr Narayanan, i wish you had the same competency in your work, at least these attacks would have had been stopped. The RAW & IB has not been able to stop at least 20 attacks in different places of India in the past 2 years. If they even have a shred of shame, heads should roll in all these 3 organisations.
If you cant bloody well protect us, then get the hell out of your seats. We do not have a choice and that’s why we go back to our schools, work and daily routine inspite of a bomb blast. Now that’s been bandied about as the resilience of our people and economy. And, iam sick of being reminded of my resilience when iam being ruled by spineless and incompetent people who instead of saving me and my family are more busy playing politics hiding beind a bullet proof screen and being swamped by some black cats who put their lives at stake so that ingrates like you can live to see another day.
