well this post is going to be pretty confusing as to what i intend to say, feel free to comment or condemn this post.

what is our tolerance towards terrorism.15 years after 93 mumbai serial blasts, when we seem to get pictures of dawood in wedding celebration..intelligence agency is not able to spot him...few years back it was reported that intelligence agents did managed to spot him in karachi, no operation was done as he was gaurded by armed motorcade for a length of an entire street.
there is still a national and political debate on the death sentence of the terrorist involved in parliament attack.
just hours before being killed in the attack, hemant karkare the ATS chief was seen explaining his investigation in malegon blasts, the accused his team found apparently was sent out in bail, and he was criticized for his investigation by a major political party.

Today we see rallies being held everywhere, debate and a national consensus and hatred against politicians and government, how did the public respond after Gujarat riot, did'nt we elect modi again. today everybody speaks about the sacrifice made by NSG comandos and mumbai police in the attack, how would the public or media respond if there was a hijack situation and a ransom for release of captured terrorist is made, would we remember these commandos then, remember how JeM chief was released after the IC-814 hijack in kandahar, if i remember correctly there were heavy demonstration by public and opposition parties for release of terrorist. I think in situations like this it is very difficult to debate on what is right and what is wrong and whom to blame.

terrorism is a global threat, so called super power countries are still fighting it. for US it was '9/11', for russia it was 'beslan tragedy', for UK it was july 7 london attack, for India it is Mumbai 26/11....US managed to make a war against the attack, other countries had counter terrorism operations, few succeeded. I guess this attack surely would have some counter operations by India and will succeed against terrorism, till then my daily prayers would have few extended lines for me and fellow countrymen.

I really appreciate you for praying for the countryman.. I agree with you that at this point of time we can’t debate what’s wrong and what is right. But I still feel that media is making so many mistakes in even the Indian and Pakistan government are fighting each other and at the same time both country medias are fighting like hell. I wish the terrorism will get defeated one day.
