Terrorism is under siege. The recent encounters followed by arrests linking to Delhi, Ahmadabad Serial blasts had shown the hidden potential of our policemen. We have also lost a sincere officer in addition to the toll of deaths by terrorists inside our nation. The arrests and further information from them exposed the approach of terrorists’ hands. They penetrated into the educational institutes, corporate organisations; IT firms, where people who are building blocks of country’s overall growth are present.
But in some where in my mind a doubt arises about all these so called exposure of power of police. This reminds me a movie story where because of the pressure from media, ministry, and public police encountered some innocent Muslims, and during course one officer opposes and he will also be killed. Finally police gets public applause and the killed officer will be treated as martyr. I wish this has not become true now. Otherwise another blast may be waiting to realise this to us.
The arrested persons who police claim that are terrorists are mainly students of Jamia Islamic University. One of them is a MBA student and during the blast he was writing an exam. Parents of almost all the arrested claim that there children are innocent. Not only parents even the neighbours also are not accepting the arrests. Now even the college is battling for them. Over a single night they made to confess and also further details were gathered from them. If they are terrorists how can these happen so fast?
I really do not wish to doubt the brave work of police. Many times the effort of policemen will be suppressed and neglected by politicians and media while their fallouts are exposed for getting publicity. Also they are not equipped with high quality and latest modern technologies and weapons to counter the modern terrorists or any other criminals. Inspite of all these circumstances police have managed to create a confidence in securing us from terrorists. The lawmakers are still in dilemma over making a stringent law against terrorism. Even though people like A.P.J Kalam asked for powerful law to save nation, government is arguing for human rights for terrorists!! Of late government has understood the ground realities of security and intelligence agencies and is taking some steps in bringing a common platform for both with latest technology support. Hope that will discourage the far higher tech trained terrorists!!
But if the movie story becomes true then all these will lead to increase the strength of “I hate India”. The attitude of suspecting every Muslim as terrorist will not make our nation happy. It adds to more hatred between religions and our nation will loose the respect of being mother of all the religions on earth caring them equally with love.
However at the same time this should not stop government from putting a strong law against terror and also direct action against them. Every big nation is having such laws. It is unfortunate that because of politics terror attacked states like Gujarat; Rajasthan, UP are not having laws which Maharashtra government is utilizing for control of terror. If central government does not agree with what the state government proposed then they should form a nationwide common law against terror. Secondly activities of SIMI, IM, LeT etc who are brainwashing to create demons to humanity are to be stopped by bringing the change in teachings in Madrasas, Mosques. Government needs to take such effective and constructive actions which can bring backward Muslims in main stream of our nation instead of vote bank oriented quota system. Love, Respect, Follow your religion and same time let other also do the same with their religion. Humanity is not for any religion.
Hatred can not save humanity. We have to kill the thought of terrorism.
But truth is God also can not save us. With the Home Minister like Shivraj Patil who is more concerned of changing clothes during blast effected hours, and openly tells about his confidence of “blessing” from madam what else can we expect? Now one more portfolios been created just to eat more tax money of us in the name of Internal Security Ministry. Then what for home minister post is there?
It is not that Muslims have choosen India rather than any other Muslim Nation to live. It is their county also. They also have to be involved with nation growth as every citizen of a nation does. From years we are living together. Now if somebody from outside is trying create hatred between us that should not be entertained by all of us. The thought that "India has given to Muslims" or "Muslims have served India" , both should not treated as Give and Take business. It is duty of each citizen to serve the nation and nation cares the citizen. Such mentallity are to be promoted.
Humanity is ultimate religion.

I was forced to write on this, can not tolerate violence in the name of religion any more.
Is India safe for Christians? This is the question which is been asked by the sources of Vatican for the incidents that are happening in Orissa, Karnataka over last 2-3 months. Then in our country so called seculars and scholars started shouting to such an extent to condemn the Hindu religion itself. And this is not the first time that because of some extremists whole religion is been targeted. This is not only with Hindus, for every religion the same truth holds. Muslims are suspected as terrorists, Christians are hated for their unethical way of conversion and many such incidents are happening which are disturbing the soul of Bharatha “Unity in Diversity”.
Extremists, fanatics and such narrow minded people exist in all the religion. They in the name of religion only spread hatred, violence between human beings which leads to vanishing of mankind from earth. We need to stop this and should understand the every religion is as respectable and important as others. These are different paths to attain GOD.
I am not here to explain the deeds of VHP in Orissa and Bajaranga Dal in Coastal Karnataka are right. Also I do not have mercy on the missionaries who are been targeted for their misdeeds. But I am worried about the innocent helpless people who are dragged in between these extremists to suffer.
Both in Orissa and Karnataka the main reason was conversion to light up the violence. In our nation as per constitution one can choose any religion to follow and also can choose any rituals which are not harming others independency to attain his spiritual goal. No one can be forcefully made to follow a religion. If the law is followed then there would have been no such incidents at all. But Vatican sponsored missionaries are here to convert more rather than helping the poor to bring up. Conversion can happen When a person.
1. Finds more great and easy religious path to attain spiritual goal.
2. Is made to hate the religion followed by him.
3. Is forced by unethical ways like muscle power, money etc.<br>
While the first one is acceptable and other two are what creating the problem now.
We would have been grateful to missionaries if the helping the poor to bring them up had no intension of changing his religious path. If the Vatican and other sources which donates lots of money to churches not have intension of increasing the Christian population in all possible ways then we would have welcomed. In the shadow of peace preacher Christ if muscle power is used to clear the obstacles for conversion it can not be accepted.
Even though the efforts of missionaries to spread Christianity is unethical who are these VHP, Bajaranga Dal to take such violent action against them and whole of Christian community? Who have empowered them as protectors of Hindu religion? Why can’t they reach the poor and depressed class of society in such remote areas and bring them up? Why can’t they put whole effort to spread equality among their own religion? Why they think in Hindu religion the solution of every problem is violence? For whom the constitution is made?
Religions are for bring harmony among the people to live together and to attain spiritual goal. No religion can survive on earth by creating hatred among the mankind. Religions are for humans and not vice versa.
Irrespective any religion to survive we breath air, drink water, eat food. In all human beings the same red colour blood flows to keep us alive. If the nature does not have any distinguish between us then why are we creating such differences to make our life more miserable? Every human being on earth is to be treated equally. We are sons and daughters of almighty, we are one.
Conversion needs to have more procedures. There should be a spiritual and ethical reason which makes one man to change the religion which needs to be recorded in court. A suitable law needs to be drawn for this which takes care of all loop holes. We the people should not entertain any violence, hatred among our neighbours only because of some extremists. We have to unite to discourage anti-social activities. If not our enemies in the world will utilise this hatred to break us and then rule on us.
It is high time where all our enemies are putting all their effort to break the unity. Recently many such efforts have become success also. They do not want our nation to be on top. They can not accept the greatness of our nation. They can not compete the growth of us. They can not stand on top longer as we are becoming global super power. So they are trying all the ways to disturb harmony. We have to understand this and stand unite against these forces. We are one, We are Bharatiyas. No religion for us is greater than our nation.Vande Mataram.
