India : Another Effort to Crack the Society
28 November, 2007
By Tanveer Jafri
For the last two decades, India is constantly in the whirl of terrorism. Often, the reasons & forms of terrorism incidents in India seem to be different.The motive of these terrorists clearly reveals that they want to make an atmosphere of instability in India. They want disturbance in peace & order & so want to see the cracks in the Indian society. They want to defame the country, which is famous for communal harmony. They want to eclipse the communal harmony of India.
On this November 23, the serial blasts with an interval of only 14 minutes, in the three cities of Uttar Pradesh, the largest state of India just give an idea of their dare-devils. From the known sources, a totally unknown organization, named the Indian Mujahiddin organization & by the so said organization an E-mail was sent on November 23 at 1.18 P.M. to a news agency in India. The terrorists gave a detail of their so said problems regarding their communal views. At the same time they gave a warning that within few minutes, the attacks of this kind will happen in India. Just after the 15 minutes of receiving this E-mail, there was the first bomb blast at 1.23 P.M. in Faizabad court complex. After that, in the period of 14 minutes, there were 5 strong blasts in the court premises of Faizabad, Varanasi & Lucknow cities. At present, there is a news of 16 deaths & about 60 badly injured persons in these blasts.
By these blasts, in the court premises, the terrorists are stating that their aim was to tell their aggressive attitude towards the lawyers. It is known that the three hard terrorists were arrested in Lucknow on last November 17. They were accused about their motive that it was to kidnap the Member of Parliament Rahul Gandhi son of Ms. Sonia Gandhi or any other national leader so that they could compel to fulfill their demands. The enquiry from the terrorists were brought out that they were finding a chance to put a garland of grenade bombs around Rahul Gandhi. When these terrorists were brought in the court of Lucknow, some excited lawyers quarreled with them. Even some lawyers decided not to take the case in favour of these terrorists.
This conflict with the arrested terrorists & not to help the terrorists was not liked by the bosses of the terrorists. As a result of it these enemies of humanity pushed the dozens of families in the well of sorrow & agony. There are four lawyers among the dead who were the main target of the terrorists. The violence created here also has been showed right. And they have called for such attacks. On the whole these fundamentalists have tried to poison the religious atmosphere of India once again.
The link between the time & place of the bomb blast is also surprising. The first blast happened in the court premises of Faizabad in Uttar Pradesh when the hearing about the disputed Ram Birth Place-Babri Mosque was going on. It is to remembered that this disputed issue of Ayodhya has hurt the communal harmony & the terrorists are, time & again making use of this issue. The second blast took place in the court premises of Varanasi when at that time a hearing about the bomb blast of 2006 in Varanasi was going on. In the same way, at the time of the blast in Lucknow, there was going an argument about the three terrorists who were arrested on November 17 in Lucknow.
Now it has become a challenge for the securities services in India, the court proceedings in three different cities about the above three very sensitive & hard crimes & the fatal blasts in these towns at the same time. Although after this happening, there is again accusation of one another in Indian politics. The central government & the state government are trying to show one-another down on the basis of security affairs. Government & leaders are also talking in routine that we shall deal with the terrorists but reality is something else.
The sufferings from the terrorism have very greatly borne by India & perhaps no other country has faced such a pitiable circumstances. It has been since independence that there are efforts to hurt the communal harmony in India. This beat of communal thoughts divided it into two. Since then, there is no safe place from the terrorists. All the temples, mosques, gurudwaras, trains, buses, railway stations, parks, government buildings, crowded markets are within the reach of the targets of the terrorists. Even these terrorists have done wrong to the holy places such as the Indian Parliament. Now the same thing has reached the Indian courts & lawyers. The terrorists have expressed their desire to target the Indian police even.
Now the question is how long will this go on? Will the terrorists go on succeeding in their unholy ideas to disturb peace in India? Will people go on mourning over the dead bodies of the relatives? And how far the statements given by the leaders & security agencies condole the innocents & peace loving citizens? Will there be search for getting out of these incidents? Undoubtedly India is so vast & it has such a large population that it is very difficult to keep vigil on its every nook & corner. And the government can't take guarantee of security of every citizen. But one thing that can be done is that the active secret services can be alerted. They should be provided with the modern equipments. Every information received by these agencies should be minutely seen, as that there should be a try to guess the ideas of the terrorists in time & efforts should be made to save the loss of life & property.
Undoubtedly the Indian citizens answer the ill will of the terrorists with peace, love, harmony & non-violent weapons. But the Indian security agencies should also be watchful enough to find the proper way out before such happenings. It is their responsibility.
