First we heard they have received an email from Deccan Mujaheddin, now it is Lashkar ai taiba, who came in a boat from Karachi. Whoever it is, this looks more more like war, than terrorism. I hope all our political leaders react to this 'war like situation' with maturity. Have not heard any blame game as of now, which is a relief.
PM is holding an emergency meeting. Track Mumbai attacks here.
Some blogs remind us that this is not the time for politicking, others are pained to tears, some keep sanity, like this one . This is a time for all of us to remember that, 'Those who do not learn from history are condemned to repeat it.'
We are all Indians first and foremost. Don't let anybody convince you otherwise.
Just like I refused to condemn anyone who had not been convicted, in an earlier post, I refuse to politicize this now. Let this country fight the enemy instead of fighting each other. I agree with Obama who says, “ ...We stand with the people of India, whose democracy will prove far more resilient than the hateful ideology that led to these attacks.”
And let us also spare a moment for those who have died in these attacks, including ATS chief, Hemant Karkare.
Edited to add: So do you believe POTA is the answer to all our terrorist problems? Do read, So You Want Terrorists To Be Tortured?
