Malleswaram or Hubli 2 ?

Imagine a bomb blast in a lane near the ruling party’s office just before the elections which is immediately attributed to an ubiquitous terrorist group by the powers that be. As expected the incident comes in handy not only for the news hungry 24 7 TV channels but helps the beleaguered ruling dispensation gain little breathing space bit far away from its internal squabbles and growing frustration of the people over cases of corruption and policies which have benefited only a few.

This ‘terrorist activity’ – as claimed by the home minister – propels the police machinery into action which promptly nabs within record time few of the alleged perpetrators alongwith the ‘mastermind’ who according to the police executed the cowardly act. Perhaps the matter should have ended their ‘happily’ with justice being done to the accused after a longwinding judicial process.

But a spate of fresh questions has put the whole probe in jeopardy.

Now it appears that the police in its rampant hurry has not investigated the case properly, not only leaving many loose ends but has supposedly resorted to third degree methods to extract confession from the said accused. Around a month after police claimed success in unearthing the case,  a news-item in a leading daily rather blew the lid from the lofty claims which makes it evident that despite having knowledge of the identity of the person whose SIM card was used to trigger the blast the police have not deemed it necessary even to question him as he happens to be an ‘influential RSS leader’.

    That terror has no religion is an often touted argument across all spectrum of the society. But using terms like Saffron Terror, Hindutva Terror etc in an explicit manner is very shameful. Two wrongs do not make a right. Not Happening !! Years of Islamic terrorism, minority appeasement and lackadaisical responses to the various threats by various Governments will have a blowback – and it is only natural. This is a sign that the majority community is feeling threatened and sidelined. Your insinuations, even if they are true, will not change this fact. This is a bitter truth.
