'Don't let them divide us again'

The law enforcement agencies ought to take steps to ensure that the miscreants are arrested and given stern punishment but our community also needs to guard itself against playing into anyone's hands. This is actually an incident of personal enmity, which has taken an ugly turn. Why is the Congress trying to play the religious card by demanding an apology from Ms Vasundhara Raje?

The law enforcement agencies ought to take steps to ensure that the miscreants are arrested and given stern punishment but our community also needs to guard itself against playing into anyone's hands. This is actually an incident of personal enmity, which has taken an ugly turn. Why is the Congress trying to play the religious card by demanding an apology from Ms Vasundhara Raje?

The incident has not taken place at her behest. She only needs to ensure that the police, which is under her government's charge, acts fairly and books the miscreants. We need to beware of the Congress, which always uses such incidents to drive a wedge between communities, just as it did in Punjab to first create Bhindranwale, who proved to be a Frankenstein.
