1. Jihad's evil fury
The Pioneer Edit Desk
Jammu to Jaipur, there's a pattern

Tuesday's ghastly serial bombings in Jaipur, coming in the wake of a surge in cross-border terrorism, are a grim reminder that our internal security situation continues to remain precarious. The bombings, which have extracted a terrible toll of innocent lives and maimed scores of others, also bear evidence of the fact that the evil forces of jihad, operating out of Pakistan or through front organisations in Bangladesh, are neither down nor out. On the contrary, after a brief lull in their murderous activities, they have struck with venomous fury, first in Jammu and now in Jaipur. These are neither stray attacks nor have the targets been chosen at random: It is obvious that there is a pattern to the recrudescence of cross-border terrorism and the Pakistani establishment is involved in it. Witness the manner in which the Pakistani Rangers provided covering fire for terrorists trying to sneak into Jammu & Kashmir, violating the terms of the ceasefire that has been in place since the NDA days. Treacly statements of condemnation and concern by individual Pakistani leaders should not distract us from this fact. As in the recent past, the jihadis behind the bombings in Jaipur chose their targets -- crowded places, including a Hanuman Mandir where devotees had gathered on Tuesday evening -- with great care to ensure maximum casualties. We have seen this in Delhi, Varanasi, Mumbai, Malegaon, Hyderabad, Lucknow and other places. It is not entirely coincidental that many of these jihadi attacks have been carried out on Tuesdays -- for example, the fidayeen raid on the Ram Mandir in Ayodhya on July 5, 2005, and the bombing of Sankat Mochan Mandir in Varanasi on March 7, 2006. The intention is to instigate a communal backlash. Nor is it coincidental that the latest jihadi outrage should have occurred in States where Assembly elections are due later this year. Heightened terrorism in Jammu & Kashmir would boost the sagging morale of the separatists while in Rajasthan, which has been largely spared terrorist depredations till now, it could create social rifts. This would serve the purpose of those who stoke jihad's deadly flames; as for the jihadis, their blighted cause is served every time they inflict death and destruction in the name of Islam.

There is no percentage in berating the Congress or blaming the UPA Government for their abysmal failure in fighting Islamist terror. When an effete Prime Minister signals surrender by offering to reward the families of jihadis killed by security forces and spends sleepless nights worrying over the fate of suspected terrorists, when the Government slyly withdraws forces from Jammu & Kashmir and subverts the Intelligence Bureau for political purposes, when a pathetically clueless Home Minister seeks to justify the inexplicable delay in sending the convicted mastermind behind the terrorist attack on Parliament House to his justly deserved death, and when a cynical Congress forces the scrapping of an effective anti-terrorism law to appease those who are not discomfited by the sight of horrific bloodshed, terrorists are bound to feel emboldened. The UPA Government will be loath to admit it, but more people have died in terrorist attacks in the past four years than during the six years the NDA was in power. It is equally true that there are more home-grown jihadis today than ever before. The import of these two facts will be lost only on those whose hearts don't beat for India.

2. My Take:

Tuesday's bombings in Jaipur, are the result not only, of Moslem's barbarism against the Hindu, but are the consequence of Hindu's failure & foible to interdict, the Moslem's barbarism. The Moslem's teeth have not been cut.

3. The barbaric Moslem has not been punished nor warned, nor sent a message:

" Keep off the Hindu. Keep off the Hindu's life, property, and his religious exemplars, or the system of Islam, shall be brought to an end in India. "

4. Millions of Moslems are in the employ of the Hindu ( many of them are using Hindu names, to keep their jobs ), they are dependent on the Hindu, for their very survival. These Moslems are addicted to eating ( and drinking ). But the cup of tea has not been dashed off their lips, and the Moslems have not been shut out of the employ of the Hindu. In other words, the Moslems have not been kicked in the A**, and their wings have not been clipped.

5. Is there any question in any Hindu's mind, that a point-blank counteraction of Moslem's barbarism needs to be done. This kind of action has not been undertaken. Ratio technique has not been applied, that is,

" For each Hindu murdered by the Moslems, twenty Moslems shall be eliminated. "

6. What are we Hindus waiting for ? Is some divine power going to save us Hindus, from the barbarism of the Moslem ?
