Politicking more important rather than stopping terror
The fact that scores of terrorists invaded Mumbai last night (some say by the sea route) and have taken hostages in five ten places in the city shows that our country, our Intelligence department, and our police have no clue at what is going to hit them next. The police, the ATS, the Intelligence, all are in the vice like grip of the politicians, who are more interested in infighting. As I wrote in my previous post politicians play games rather than show any interest in tackling terror. And I am sure that the blame game and bickering will start again. Don’t these anti-national politicians realise that all parties need to come together to fight against this war on our country?
Although figures are not being given out and nor are names, it does appear that a lot of foreign tourists have been caught in the battle, some are dead and some have been taken hostage. I hope now our government at last acknowledges that this country is not safe. Anyone can attack, from anywhere and everytime we will be caught by surprise. It’s about time we stopped gloating that our country is safer than Pakistan. It’s about time we stopped begging foreign cricket teams to come here and play. It’s about time we realise that we are in the war zone.
Any politician playing political games should be put under house arrest and stripped of his position. That might just leave us with very few people but the fewer of these traitor politicians left the better it is for our country. We don’t need masses of selfish politicians who are more interested in their party winning the elections or they themselves getting elected, rather than leading our country. We are not in peace-time.
