Whosoever kills an innocent human being, it shall be as if he has killed all mankind, and whosoever saves the life of one, it shall be as if he had saved the life of all mankind.

Holy Quran 5:32

I wonder, if this Ayaah of Quraan shareef, was missed by those terrorists who find their inspirations from religon, or is that they failed to comprehend the meaning of this great Ayaah! In either case, this loss of data, in comprehension is posing a serious threat to humanity, and bringing a bad name to the religion itself.

The recent serial blasts in two cities of India, has left everyone of us shocked. I felt sad, furious, helpess which led to frustration, down, and again felt frustarted. And for some odd reason, I had to show my anger and protest a bit louder.

But this is not for anyone else, but for myself. This is for my own Zameer, that I should speak out my protest against this exteremly inhuman act of bombing and killing innocents. I don't know who these people are, which religion and region they belong to, what are their political motives behind this, and I don't want to know. All I care, is elimination of perpetrators and their act. I want the elimination of this ideology that lead people to bomb innocents at ease. I wish, I could have helped in one way or other to get them off the face of earth. They are indeed a serious threat to humanity, and in particular, a threat to the plularistic fabric of my nation. At least they aim to create a divide between the religious community of my nation.

But then the resilience we show after each blasts is exemplary.

The instincts of communal harmony and mutual co-existence are so deeply entrenched amongst Indian masses that despite occasional tremors, they are not uprooted by the worst sorts of political machinations and most despicable deeds of inhumanity. These are the instances which serve as the silver lining when the dark clouds of hatred and animosity seem to be surrounding us from all sides.

India is one. And InshaAllah It shall remain as one.

The world is yet to produce a bomb which can permanently tear apart the social fabric between Hindus and Muslims who have been adorning this beutiful face of India since centuries.

This is the spirit which inspired the renowned Urdu Poet Dr. Allama Iqbal to declare with confidence.

'Kuchh baat hai ke hasti mit-ti naheen hamaree,
Sadiyon raha hei dushman dore zaman hamara

 And to make situation further bad, I think, we lack political will as well to solve the issue. All we care is to blame each others. BJP blame congress for soft stand on terrorism, while forgetting that they themselves have this credit of taking a couple of hard-core terrorists on a "state paid, minster guided, one way" trip to Kandhar. Congress on the other hand, have this unrealistic and unreasonable (for me its insulting as well) fear of loosing vote if they act hard on terrorism.

What can be low than the following statement from Sushma swaraj :



Senior BJP leader Sushma Swaraj has raised an accusing finger at the Congress-led United Progressive Alliance Government for the blasts in Bangalore and Ahmedabad.
"The blasts in Bangalore and Ahmedabad reek of a conspiracy to divert attention from the cash for vote allegations and also to bring back the Muslim vote which the Government has lost due to the nuclear deal," Sushma alleged.




I once asked my friend "Do we need politicians like we have in India?". He jokingly said : "Afzal Guru MUST be hanged, for failing in his mission". The statement, which is a bit harsh and strong, said it all. It reflects the degree of respect these politicians command from common Indian.

After having said so, all I now want is security agencies put their act together and catch the real culprits. I strongly feel that we do have a number of culprits within our frontier, because without their help, it would have been impossible for foriegners to carry the blasts. So we should come out of this predefined template of "Foriegn Hand" kinda statement, and catch the real culprits. Because everytime, we shrugg off the responsibility by catching the wrong person, the actual culprit get a sense of immunity and he commits the same crime again and again.


And I leave a protest picture from my favourite city, Bangalore :

The blog is good, but the contents show that the serial blasts have been done by the Muslims... This is not a good move... You have to be neutral at least... It has not yet been proved who has done these acts... Even if it was found out that some Muslims hand was there in it we cannot blame the entire Msulim community for it...  
There are many theories by many people which go against even the Muslims or Hindutva forces or even the current government... 
Whoever has carried out such heinous crime should be caught and brought to Justice... Whoever has done it has done the most heinous crime against Humanity... It was carried out to put fear in the hearts of Indians and the terrorist have been success in doing so... We can defeat such criminals by getting united under one banned and show them that we are still united... As u said nobody can divide us with any kind of bombs but we have to show our integrity in any matter... 
And the government should solve this issue in an unbiased way...

Thanks Sikku for the feedback. 
I never intend to blame, and will never InshaAllah in my life, blame the entire community of ours. 
I don't care for the religion of those terrorists. They could be anyone. Anyone from india could have provided the logistic support to them. It could have been Albert, Aaakash or Amir. I don't care what he believs in. I care only for his actions which is hurting us. Our nation
