Indian Tolerance: A Curt Reply for Terrorists
By Tanveer Jafri
Contributing Writer
An Indian muslim injured in Jaipur bomb blast

On May 13, 2008 once again, there was a terrorist attack on the famous tourist city Jaipur, which is also known as the Pink City of India. The serial bomb blasts by the terrorists in Jaipur moved the city that is known for the communal harmony. The terrorists made all the blasts within the radius of one & half kilometre at 8 different places, within the time gap of 15 minutes. Bicycles were used for the blasts. Ten cycles were used for these blasts but one of these cycles didn't explode. It is told that last year these types of cycles were used for blasts in the Court Premises of Lucknow, Faizabad, & Banaras in Uttar Pradesh and also in Malegaon. The terrorists as a cycle rider easily take the cycles to the blast spot. The terrorists keep the blast material in a bag or Tiffin on the cycle. After that the blast material is exploded with the help of a timer or a remote. This procedure was adopted in Jaipur also. As a result, 63 people belonging to different communities lost their lives & more than 150 persons were wounded.

The issue of terrorist's activities is not new. The terrorism run in the name of Kashmir has been active, swinging up & down, for the last three decades. Punjab has also remained in the spiral of terrorism. Even today, there is news of terrorism being active by some separatist organizations. Our country has been facing many challenging violent organizations like BODO, ULFA, PWG, TNLF, LTTE & Naxalites for many decades. In spite of all this, the voice of tolerance, harmony & co-existence has always echoed in this vast country. And the events as terrorism have never been able to remove India from the path of harmony. The terrorists have knowingly done such hateful activities so that the communal harmony is destroyed. But as a result of the harmony among the countrymen, they have never succeeded in their wicked motives.

The serial blasts in Jaipur were the result of such a wicked attempt of the terrorists. The result of inquiry of these blasts is very serious & harassing. The terrorism in the name of Islam, undoubtedly, seems worldwide. There may be different reasons of it, at different places. There may not be any link of it with one another. But from simple glance, all this seems and being tolled to be an "Islamic terrorism" to the world. India has been proudly announcing it that the terrorism that is worldwide doesn't have any contribution from any Indian terrorist organizations or any Indian. But after the Jaipur events, the e-mail that the enquiry agencies have received through the media, that has perplexed not only the Indian security agencies but has raised a problem before the Indian Muslims also. Till now, there was controversy in India that the members of SIMI (Students of Islamic Movement in India) are terrorists or not. The so said terrorist organization 'Indian Mujahiddin' who is said to have taken responsibility of the Jaipur blasts & the mail sent from the so said Guru_ Al Hindi has put all the country in anxiety. If this email is right, the language & warning used in it is so dangerous that reveals a big & deep conspiracy of the terrorists. In this e-mail, there is a warning to the government of India to avoid its sweet relations with America. The sender of this email has challenged the Muslims of India specially the Moulavies for their collective condemnation of the terrorism at the national level & has called them to oppose & face it bravely. This terrorist organization has called those Islamic religious leaders as anti-Islamic who call the terrorism as anti-Islamic.

If this e-mail is not a result of any other big conspiracy & is based on truth, then taking this organization named Indian Mujahiddin, India has to be ashamed of in the world. In fact, till now the countries as Pakistan, Bangladesh, Afghanistan, Sudan, and Chechnya etc were considered to be asylum places for the Islamic organizations. But this organization, 'Indian Mujahiddin' that has been heard for the first time after the jaipur blasts, has put a challenge before the Indian Security Agencies. There is no doubt that the aim of the terrorist is to hurt the communal harmony in India. The terrorists may have tried to strike at the hearts of the Hindus by making blasts in temples or hurting the feelings of the Muslims by shedding their blood in Mosque or the Muslim shrines, but they have been given a curt reply by the Indian people. It can be easily said that as there is an increase in the wicked & nefarious activities of the terrorists, there is an increase in the tolerance of the Indians. In fact, all India has known the aim of the terrorists & their every blow is responded with the communal harmony & tolerance as was seen in Jaipur, last days.

Despite all this, there is a strong need for the Indian Muslims collectively, to understand the aims & designs of the terrorists & at the same time, the Indian government, the state governments & the security agencies, all are required to cooperate with them. Indian Muslims should be careful that there shouldn't be any blot on them like a hired man or a terrorist or an unknown person is getting shelter from an Indian Muslim. Or his home is being made a centre of anti-human activities. He is not a true Muslim who gives shelter to the man who has indulged in anti-Muslim activities as terrorism. He is a true Muslim who saves the innocent people from being killed & plays a cooperative role to unveil the conspiracies that are anti-human & anti-Islam.
