Poverty & terrorism

Hello world, ever wondered why terrorists now target the common people, the people on the roads and frankly the terribly defenseless? Who was that one person that was killed in the Bangalore blasts of the last few days? A poor garment factory worker who was sitting at a bus stop waiting for a bus, no highly paid tech warrior, not really a clip_image002beneficiary of the global success story that is Bangalore. But definitely a victim of the city’s success, which has attracted the kind of attention that this once peaceful town could live without.

It isn’t tough to guess why the poor & defenseless are now the targets, on an average there are 50 policemen guarding the high & mighty, there just aren’t any cops to guard over the rest of us billion people out there. Terrorists aren’t really known for their bravado after all & the one that no one looks out for are the best targets after all! There is often a question raised about yesterday’s freedom fighters and today’s terrorists. It is a wrong comparison, Khudiram Bose and Bagha Jatin tried to do harm to the obvious manifestations of all that was wrong. Not poor people that had no choice?

Our leaders have turned cowards now, why will not the terrorists, after all what really is expected of them but death and destruction? They say that there are not laws enough or strong perhaps to curb this destructive strain. There are laws today that are often used to disenfranchise common citizens why then cannot the real culprits be caught?h It is never the law – just the desire to implement it and the desire to get out of the system’s corrupt stupor to understand that the world out there now wants to bring a violent end to all this.
