Remembring July 7 London Bombing

The July 7 bombing should be a day for collective remembrance. It is not the fate of one country or city we should look upon as a single incidence. It is a wake-up call for all those who believe in tolerance and coexistence to unite from one end of the earth to the other, to cut the roots of those who have no concern but to impose their ways even on those who have their established ones.

The terrorists dream of establishing an empire of their own where they can exercise their fantasies, if not their animist religion. As in some primitive religions offering human sacrifices was sacred for continuity. For these new animists under the cover of Islam, they enjoy sacrificing people to quench their lust for blood. For them anyone having modern ways of living or not growing a beard is a legitimate target. Even Islamic countries aren’t immune from their attacks. In Morocco there was Casablanca bombing in 2003. Let’s not forget the victims in other countries like the USA on September 11, Madrid on March 11th, 2004, and Jordan last year year, and the countless victims of religious sectarian violence in Iraq. The list can’t be exhausted if it is to be given in full details.

Terrorism seems to have no borders. It seeks any land to fructify. It attracts the “well-educated”, the “well-to-do” as it attracts the ignorant and the poor. But to counter-attack it, people should learn to unite against it by saving those likely to fall in it and rounding up those likely to be set to carry out their “jihad” , regardless of what damage they can cause to true and reasonable Muslims. Muslims and non-Muslims should extend the hand of friendship to one another instead of pointing fingers of accusation. Doing the contrary will just strengthen the position of the terrorists whose exploitation of the media can draw more support for them.

UPDATE: ( In the aftermath of Mumbai blast)
The terrorist attacks bear similarity in terms of date. They may be the work of the same terrorist groups. A terror expert, psychologist or even a numerologist astrologer should resolve the mystery of the date in which they take places.

In the USA, the attack took place on September 11th.
In Spain, the attack took place on March 11th.
In Mumbai, the attack took place on July 11th.

Does the number 11 have some “veneration” for the terrorists, as it can be their “mascot” in carrying their deadly attacks?

More research should be made on the days of terrorist attacks to establish a “logical” link.

Mumbai blast is another reminder that terrorism has no borders. Coward terrorists seek easy ways to carry their savage attacks. They choose places where there are unarmed and ordinary people to execute their savage attacks. They have no concern for the fate of those trapped in the attacks or the pain they cause to their friends and relatives.

They can’t play it fair. They seek no democratic means to put their case through. Democratic countries are their target like India, US and UK.

    Senior citizens of this country have big problems getting reasonable price insurance for their cars and also holidays. Why should we be penalised?

    Terrorism in the modern sense is violence or other harmful acts committed (or threatened) against civilians for political or other ideological goals. Most definitions of terrorism include only those acts which are intended to create fear or “terror”, are perpetrated for an ideological goal (as opposed to a lone attack), and deliberately target or utterly disregard the safety of non-combatants. Many definitions also include only acts of unlawful violence. And nowadays the power of terrorism is rising and it is a big problem of our society.
