The death toll so far in the rush hour suburban train bombings in Mumbai on July 11th has crossed 150, leaving more than 350 injured. It is heart rendering to see relatives and friends searching and enquiring desperately about the missing people. But what is reassuring is that the people of India and Mumbai in particularly have reacted in a very mature way, in spite of the provocations by Hindu extremist organizations such as Shiv Sena, VHP and RSS, under the leadership of BJP.
Common people were seen telling TV reporters "We the people of Mumbai are not afraid, We will continue our normal life to tell the coward terrorists that they can not scare us". Also we have seen how the common people have reacted in a very mature way, carrying the injured and dead for medical help. No yelling and crying. No panic.In times like these, you can sense the strength of the nation.
It is beyond any doubt that the terrorists with active support of Pakistani communal elements have perpetrated this henious act. And America gives tacit support to the Pakistani military regime, which is in turn giving active support to Islamic terrorist elements in the whole of South Asia. Pakistan was the breeding ground for Talibans and now the Kashmiri Terrorists such as LeT.
India survived as a single entity for the last 5 thousand years, even if it was an agglomeration of smaller fiefdoms. I see no reason how an external terrorist force can rip apart this country, when the people remain united. That is the reason why BJP was thrown out of power after such a carnage as the Gujarat communal massacare. Even that could not destroy the country's unity and the people have unitedly ripped apart the rippers.
I wish we Indians will will win in the end against communal hatred.
