Who would know better about terrorism than us Indians? I guess, right from young kids to the old people, all hear about them very frequently. As frequently as the rains, as frequently and as obvious as the changing weather. Mumbai is the only major city in the world to be rocked by serial blasts twice. And, every other city does keep on having them.
Earlier, it was just Kashmir. But now, blasts have become a part and parcel of our daily lives. Couple of days back, Uttar Pradesh was bombed mercilessly. I guess, the terrorists in this case had a “thing” against the lawyers. The bombs exploded in the civil courts of three important cities.
You name it, and the bombs are there. In hospitals, in parks, in courts, in buildings, in trains too!!!
For India, terrorism has spread like poison contaminating everything.
The West experiences such cruel atrocities from time to time too. The 9/11 incident in US and the 7/7 one in London.
No one’s been spared.
Now, the question arises, how can anyone be so in-human, so insensitive…??? What do terrorists get by killing so many people? What sort of revenge they get? Are they happy doing this? Is all this going to lead them to salvation?
I asked all these questions as a 6 year old when Mumbai was shaken by 13 serial blasts on March 12, 1992. It’s been 15 years since then and I still haven’t got any answers to those questions. I doubt, whether I’ll get them after 15 more years. That time I would be speechless in front of my kids as my mom was when I asked her this.
What is this “freedom” that they intend to have? You can see, kids as young as 16 getting involved in terrorism. Respectable people like doctors, engineers, teachers, all those you imagine to be quiet and sound, become capable of performing the worst of all actions. Their families themselves don’t know what their own people do. What kind of masks do they wear?
Is there a stop to this? When will everything be allright? Can “terrorism” be wiped off?
Hundreds of questions but no definite answers.
Tomorrow may never arise for us. One fine day, all of us might be dead. Unpredictable as it is, Life is getting more and more un-reliable these days.
All we can do is keep our eyes and ears open to do what we can to help combat terrorism.
As for the terrorists, all we can hope, is that they will get the punishment for their sins and they will repay for the act they committed. That they will repent for all those innocent lives and change for better or die changing.
If there is a God somewhere,then, he’s watching……Terrorism will fight ugly with him BUT it’s no match for the HOPE and LOVE that resides n humanity.
As long as we are humans, terrorists can never make animals out of us!!!
