"ऐसा नहीं है। इतने बड़े शहर में छोटा हादसा हो जाता है। तो टोटल फैलयर नहीं है। / Aisa nahi hai. Itne bade shahar mein chhota hadsa ho jata hai. To total failure nahi hai. / It is not like that. In big cities like this, small incidents do happen. It's is not a total failure."Of course, it's good he said that, as the world now knows what is in the mind and heart of such politicians. The world now knows from the horse's mouth that they don't give two hoots for the safety of their citizens.
How do such Minister show bravado? By traveling with their Z+ Security at the cost of tax payers and make mockery of their deaths by quoting sound bytes as if they are writing latest Pulp Fiction. Economic Times reports,
“With such a home minister at the helm of affairs, we could not ask for a greater disaster. Mr Patil spoke and behaved as if he was featuring in a pulp Bollywood movie, during the 60-hour-long terror attack and its aftermath, with irresponsible sound-bytes serving as dialogues,” an exasperated senior Congress minister told ET. This minister cited ‘information’ fed by Mr Patil to the byte-hungry news channels.
“The terrorists had ammunition and planned to kill 5,000 people. But the brave police security forces crushed their designs and reduced the damage to a much lesser degree,” Mr Patil said at a press conference on Friday. Mr Patil’s statements, about the ability of terrorists to kill 5,000 people, have not been confirmed by the NSG which finally freed the city landmarks from the terrorists.
But for politicians like Patil, this is a small incident that the arrested radical Islamist terrorist, Ajmal Mohammed Amir Kasab (seen on the left), a resident of Faridkot village in Pakistani Punjab’s Ukada district who came with other dozens of terrorists from Karachi, Pakistan through the sea route without being intercepted, lands unchecked on THE prime location in Mumbai at Gateway of India, walks into Chatrapati Shivaji Terminus (CST) with an AK-47 and shoots innocent Citizens to brutal death! Mr. Patil it may be a small incident for you, but it is most certainly not so in a Dharmochit (Moral Righteous) world. Because this world is no GTA and you are no hero.
Mr. Modi raised valid points about the lackadaisical Government and it's zero policy towards destroying terrorism. He also informed the public that he had brought to the notice of the Prime Minister about one year ago that Pakistan encroaches into Bharatiya waters and illegally detain Bharatiya Fishermen. Also, that when they allow these Fishermen to go, their boats which are registered in Bharat are not returned and are now used for this heinous attack on Bharat again. No wonder he is being projected as the future Prime Minister of Bharat in various debates online.
Like Ms. Tavleen Singh asked in her article Terror’s wake up call some serious questions as raised by Mr. Modi,
How dare our Government allow this to happen? How dare the Prime Minister shift responsibility for what happened by blaming ‘external elements’ for the terrible tragedy we saw unfold before our eyes last week? As an honourable man, should he not concede that the reason why the Islamists are winning their war against India is because his government has done nothing to stop them? If he does not accept this he owes it to us to list the steps taken by his government to stop the jihad whose stated aim is to destroy India or Islamise it.
There has been more Islamist terrorism on Indian soil under the leadership of Sonia Gandhi and Dr Manmohan Singh than at any other time. From being a Kashmiri problem it has become our biggest national security problem. The attacks have become more sophisticated and more daring every time. And last week we saw enemy troops land easily in our commercial capital and go on a spree of murder and mayhem that took more than two days to end. It was more an act of war than an act of terrorism, but do we know who the enemy is? No, we do not. What is the point in blaming Pakistan when we are not even able to identify the people who did this?
We would have been able to identify them if the Government of India had created that most fundamental requirement to fight this war: a computerised database...
Last week’s attacks in Mumbai would have required months of planning. People trapped in the Taj and Oberoi told their rescuers that the terrorists seemed to know exactly where everything was, from the elevators to the number of exits. There must have been dry runs. Were Maharashtra’s intelligence agencies sleeping? When security was tightened a few months ago at Mumbai’s hotels, did the police create contingency plans? Were they prepared for an attack by armed men? State governments have shown themselves to be singularly useless in fighting terrorism but the final responsibility for Indian cities being such easy targets lies with the Government of India, with the Prime Minister personally.
There is a war being waged against India by sophisticated, highly motivated mujahideen who believe their evil jihad has the sanction of Allah. To fight them we must first admit that there is a jihad. This neither Sonia Gandhi nor the Prime Minister is able to do for fear that they might hurt Muslim sentiments. They don’t appear to see that by not admitting that Islamist terrorism is a reality, they virtually condemn all Muslims as being part of the jihad. If you notice the ease with which the Government of India labelled the Sadhvi and her colleagues as Hindu terrorists, you know that dangerous political games are being played that endanger India’s security. The jihad against India is a national problem. The Prime Minister is most to blame for the pusillanimity of India’s response.
