Mumbai Attacks

So it's happened again.

About 67 days after Mohan Chand Sharma of Delhi Police died of terrorist bullets, now Ashok Kamte, Vijay Salaskar and Hemant Karkare are dead of terrorist bullets - all Super Cops with a stellar record of service and bravery; all dead fighting for country led by a Prime Minister and a State led by a Chief Minister with a record of weak waffling when dealing with terror, crime or crisis.


My deepest condolences to the families of the Officers who gave their lives for the country which perhaps doesn't deserve such ultimate acts of love and sacrifice because as heroes die the majority watches with apathy concerned more with Sensex than law and order and national unity and pride.

Punjab, Kashmir and now this - the apathy is the same
general apathy of it's them, not me or mine or what can I do? The press was as divisive then as it is now - gleefully reporting death and murder without taking a moral stand, the intelligentsia as removed from reality as it is now - citing socio-economic factors as reasons over cocktails and affairs without lending a single tangible helping hand to the displaced victims of terrorists, and the average Indian as self absorbed with money and more money like he/ she is today without a concern for the nation, society, right, ethics and all things that make people human beings.

Now its out of rural areas. This time its not the hoi-polloi killed in Mumbai train blasts of couple years ago. Now its in the playing grounds of the rich, so maybe its a bit more scary and a lot more real for the rich, but for the average guy its the same - India being attacked with impunity while the Prime Minister whimpers and the Opposition which had bent over backwards to those hijackers when it was in power talks tough.

It's wasting heroism to die for a country soft on terrorism where nothing changes except number of dead heroes increases while for its leaders and citizenry India as a nation takes a secondary position to self interest; and its wasting heroism on a country when:

  • Abu Salem - the master mind for the previous Bombay blasts - receives preferential treatment in a Mumbai jail
  • Dawood Ibrahim is still a free man - for the record a known Muslim criminal who has funded attacks against India and the man behind Abu Salem, and known as India's arch enemy, lives in Pakistan and despite their numerous meetings the Weak Sikh has never asked Geroge Bush to help get Dawood extradited to India
  • India doesn't do enough to protect it's citizens - AFTER HEZBOLLAH ATTACKS ON ISRAEL AND IN THE POST 9/11 WORLD FIGHTING TERRORISM IS A GLOBAL PARTNERSHIP, ALLIANCE, COMMITMENT AND THAT INDIA HAS NOT SOUGHT HELP FROM ISRAEL AND USA PROACTIVELY MAKES IT SOFT ON TERROR, BECAUSE IT IS UNDER EQUIPPED IN TERMS OF SURVEILLANCE EQUIPMENT AND MODERN COMBAT TECHNOLOGY AND PRACTICES - attacks on the Parliament and trains shows its soft underbelly repeatedly, and also its unwillingness to fight terror with deadly force.
  • India's lack of knowledge and commitment to deal with terrorism with world class ability, agility and capability means that the Police fight sophisticatedly trained and totally mind washed freaks without adequate infrastructural and tactical support so as a Cop you walk into the line of fire alone without your country or department giving you a trained team of Psychologists there to engage the terrorists in talks - in Mumbai why were Imams and Mullahs, and Psychologists not involved early on?
  • The combat armor provided to Police Officers seems of inferior quality otherwise how would bullets penetrate a bullet proof vest - do experts agree that Indian police is armed with the right protective wear?
  • Why die for a country where despite their failures to safeguard life and property both Manmohan Singh and Vilas Rao Deshmukh get to keep their jobs
World's new self proclaimed financial super power that calls itself India Shining looks weak and unprepared as it's brought to its knees by an unknown sect of rabid dogs who for over 36 hours violently hold hostage India's financial and fashion capital while (Shiny) Indians hopelessly blunder through the situation - attackers even used a Police vehicle for random drive by shooting. What makes India Shining really India Stupid is its total unpreparedness - an attack of this magnitude had to be planned for months if not longer, and that Indian intelligence did not hear a peep about it shows how tight lipped Muslims are when reporting something suspicious, and that Indian intelligence agencies have no intelligence gathering capabilities at Muslim grassroots level so be it Delhi or Train blasts before that or Mumbai attacks now India Shining is a blind, mute, deaf sitting duck one can kill at random, so why die for it when there'll be nothing except a medal for your family as martyr after after martyr has died while opportunist fool after fool has prospered and ruled?

To repay the debt to the heroes and to be really India Shining India needs to: get Dawood, hang Salem, tap every Madrassa and militant organizations' offices, get foreign Intelligence experts as RAW etc. have failed, train Indian police and para military forces to become experts in combating terrorism, stop all trade and commerce and cricket matches with Pakistan until proven that that nation is not behind attacks on India. AND Indian Press and Politicians UNIVOCALLY need to condemn terrorism and suppot execution of enemies of the State despite ideology platforms, otherwise they talk while heroes perish and its time they shut up and walked the patriotic talk where India comes first. Otherwise India is just a weak, 3rd world nation gotten lucky with its luck about to run out as luck and cowards rarely coexist for long.

Thank you Officers
Sharma, Kamte, Salaskar, Karkare - may your families live long and be proud that you had the courage in the land of the weak and may your name live long in the land of the living dead.
