Today there was a major set of blasts in a comunally sensitive area of Mumbai, India. This left around 38 people dead and over 100 injured. Had this happened in other countries, there would have been an incredible amount of soul-searching and action to track down the involved. But it is a misfortune that we have a Government that will be more interested in making time pass so that people forget about this. The current Congress Government has too many things in its head - it has to make sure that its electoral base does not get affected and for this, it cannot afford to investigate this terrorist act too deeply for fear of alienating its base. There have been numerous acts of terrorism and the Government somehow does not lend itself to reassuring citizens that it will be able to overcome the acts being committed against India. What we as citizens need to do is to give a wake up call to the Government to live up to its responsibility and act to prevent such acts of terrorism happening again against the citizens of India.
