Terrorism: Time to act by OurSelf

With the growing insecurity in our nation I think we must now act towards this ever lasting deep penetrating threat for living, Terrorism.
Just go few years back before Kargil, where most of us were living without even thinking about our Jawans who were fighting against terrorists to save us. Because we felt that terrorists are only headache of government and the Arm Forces. So we were feeling secured living in Bengaluru, Hyderabad, Ahmadabad and almost all the Middle-South-West Indian part our nation. In fact it was common understanding that only Delhi, Mumbai were probable target for terrorists apart from J&K and Some north east states. Well now at 2008 are we feeling same? The answering itself increases our heart beating.
Without listing out those known incidents which made us feeling insecure one by one, I am briefing out some common reasons which I have felt for this growing threat to our life. Obvious reason is the lack of Government laws and regulations to tackle the issue. I do not doubt the great Jawans at the borders who are securing our land at the cost of their life from the terrorists but corruption in top rankings can not be overridden. But what about other incomings from outside world ? Next who will catch and kill the inside trainers who are growing without any break to spread jihad? Our ministers, human rights organisation, bureaucrats are going up-to the extent to save a terrorists from being punished. Now who can be trusted for our secured life?
There is no point in arguing that what I have written is superstitious after the Jaipur blast and series of blasts almost every half a year in different part of our nation. So let us not move away from the fact that we are not well secured.
Change of Government may make us more secure if they make tightened laws. But for how long time, when the old government comes back its first job will be to stop or to change all the good things of old government. Moreover no one can trust these corrupted inefficient ministers, police men, bureaucrats who doesn’t even think about us.
The best is to change our life style in order to save us. From the blasts that have taken place in Bengaluru, Hyderabad, Mumbai, Jaipur, Akshardam etc (I have to use etc..!!) shows that terrorists are living in those city for more than 6 months to make plans on location and time for blasts, are also using local networks to get the explosives and related materials from outside world. To tackle them it may be easier to the neighbours then to police. We just have to be aware about our neighbourhoods. Not merely close watching but suspicious movements must also not to be ignored. Positive part of this is to have human relations growing, which at this point in metro cities are lowering between human beings. Use of internet, websites which may not require identity proof to inform the police, bureaucrats can also be utilised. While travelling on trains, bus any unaccounted bags, goods are not to be ignored but to verified with the help of TT, Conductor and Ticket Collector etc.
The people who have suffered from the terrorists are not only belongs to one religion or one state or one part of our nation. They are the people of our country who were living simple like us without involving into dirty politics, cruel rowdism, unequal castism. If they can also be suffered because of ignorant of government, policemen and themselves then continuing the ignorant also takes our happiness from life away.
Lastly, a serious food for thought. Is Terrorism a common crime which may be excused by president of India?
As always any feedback regarding this issue is welcomed. Let us prove to the world that we are internally strong enough to stop the outside attack on our integrity. Also shows those coward terrorists that we are one and such kind of inhuman attempt to break the society and create a threat will no longer continue. With the unity and awareness, involvement towards the Bharatha we will make our nation Strong Self reliable Nation.
