More Than Blame, India Needs to Breed Understanding
Global media such as the BBC and the CNN have viewed the Mumbai attacks by terrorists as a dangerous frontline global war between terrorists and anti-terrorists. Although the deep-seated psychology behind terrorist attacks does not have any noble purpose, it contains lunaticism bred and nurtured by deep-rooted hatred and shallow-mindedness of power-politics.
In 1992, more than 2,000 people died in Mumbai in the name of temple or mosque. So-called Hindu ascetics preaching non-violence became warriors, who carried axes to chop human heads.
In 1993, more than 250 people died in bomb attacks, the reprisals for the demolition by Hindu fanatics of the mosque at Ayodhya.
In 2003, more than 50 people died when two car bombs exploded outside Taj Mahal hotel.
Similarly in 2006, more than 180 people lost their lives in seven explosions at railway stations in India itself.
The Mumbai attacks this time did have some difference, i.e., the primary target were foreign tourists.
The attacks on india’s commercial capital appears to have a political motive though the massacre itself is never to be considered healthy. The adoption of the terrorist path is itself anti-humanism.
Terrorist philosphy does not contain any element of human sensitivity. Therfore, no matter what goal it carries out of lunaticism, it does not have rationale.
Terrorists have already murdered millions of human beings for nothing. However, reconginizing terrorists is a difficult task. Massacres of civilians may be one characeristic to trace it. But there are more dangerous terrorists under the cover of democracy, human rights and peace.
There are state-sponsored advocates of terrorists on a global scale. They spend huge amounts of money to assasinate politcal leaders and replace them with their puppets figures. They do not hesistate to wipe out civilian population by dropping millions of tons of poisonous bombs.
Such terroristic attacks have not been studied and their short-term and long-term effects have not been analyzed at all. Instead, so many megabillion multinational media corporatons have been advocating such terrorism.
However, the threats from fundamentalists, fanatics and lunatics are not to be neglected. They do add pain to human torture cultivated by atrocious and ruthless rulers.
Terrorist attacks in India are routinely blamed on foreigners. Homegrown poison is most often ignored. Ethnic hostility and exterminationism at home are not cared.
The solution does not lie in overshadowing home discontent and easily putting blames on external forces.
Indeed, dealing with terrorism in a country of huge population like India involves working hard to produce humanist citizens, starting from primary level education.
However, immediate steps are to be taken for detecting the status of internal security and intelligence mechanisms. What is not negligible regarding intelligence mechanisms in South Asia is the fact that corruption is not an ordinary problem.
It is up to the concerned elites to understand this advice the way they prefer.
