Principles of politics

There are many in India who are far more dangerous than the Simi activists. At least Simi youths take a stand on issues ? right or wrong is a different matter.

Principles of politics

There are many in India who are far more dangerous than the Simi activists. At least Simi youths take a stand on issues — right or wrong is a different matter. But people like Mulayam Singh are unprincipled and are willing to compromise on anything in return for votes. Till the time India doesn’t rid itself of such political leaders, internal security will remain a myth.

No link to Kashmir

It’s appalling that Pakistan’s Foreign Minister has linked the Mumbai terror attack to the Kashmir dispute. Terrorism unleashed by no group can be tolerated on any ground. Pakistan must dismantle the infrastructure of terrorism on territory under its control.

Going too soft

If Pakistan-sponsored terrorism in India is a fallout of the jehad for Kashmir, why doesn’t PoK face  similar terror acts? Pakistan’s Foreign Minister must know that terrorism will continue even after the Kashmir issue is resolved.

But it’s true that India’s benevolent approach towards Pakistan and its terror industry has brought matters to such a head. Yet, discontinuing the peace process now will only strengthen the terrorist elements.

Who cares?

There is no point in shouting from the rooftop about how pained we are by the sufferings of our fellow citizens. Are we really? Thousands of people live like stray cattle on Mumbai’s footpaths — proof of our indifference. Our intelligence agencies fail  time and again. But terrorists understand only one language — that of terror. Let India attack all terrorist camps along the borders without worrying about how the world will react.

Under the chakra’s cover

As terrorism continues unabated, I’m reminded of the Holy Mother of Pondicherry Ashram’s prophecy. She had said in 1947 that in the national flag, the chakra covered only the white band but it should be bigger covering all three bands. Absence of this meant endless strife  between religions and castes. It’s worth more than just a thought.
