India’s Blame Game
January 11, 2010 1 Comment
Recently, India’s Home Minister Chidambaram gave a statement that India would retaliate strongly to Pakistan-backed terrorism. He said, If terrorists and militants from Pakistan try to carry out any attacks in India, they will not only be defeated but will be retaliated very strongly. He said he has been warning Pakistan not to play with India and that the Mumbai attacks should be the “last game”. Contrary to the statement of Indian Home Minister, it isthe Indian soil which is being continuously used for subversive activities against neighbouring countries such as Pakistan, Bangladesh, Sri Lanka, Nepal and China etc. No wonder New Delhi is facing some serious security threats but from within. These problems and threats are of absolutely indigenous nature. India is facing Naxal menace, which according tothe Indian Prime Minister is the biggest threat to countrys security . Similarly, the turmoil in the Northeastern states is also a result of Indian Governments inability to address their grievances. India is also facing communal violence perpetrated by Hindu extremists, having patronage of Indian government. The demolition of Babri Mosque, Gujarat pogrom and burning of Samjhota Express are few examples in which Hindu extremists butchered Muslims with complete impunity.
