Terrorism Opinion Sources Need a Hard Blow
By Tanveer Jafri
Contributing Writer
Peace appealing poster

The natural imaginary havoc may be far away but it looks that human being foot throwing himself in the self made whirlpool in the present age, the world including the developed countries is passing through the stage of economic depression. There is news of some great banks, great companies, and government and non-government enterprises going bankrupt. The giant of rising prices is putting a question mark on the livelihood of the poor. On the other side in these difficult conditions the human society instead of solving the problems is getting into the problem of opinion differences.

The human being has mere existence in this world but he has become a foe of the humanity. The reason for this opposition and difference is strange. Somewhere the Allah is being said the right and others are false. Some call their own God and culture the superior and the oldest one and trying to prove others baseless. Some others consider their own God as the creator of the world. In their opinion others are only false beliefs and mere show. Now the question is the man who lives for sixty or seventy years has the capacity to know the secrets of the existence of God and the earth that has a history of millions of years? What is the secret of this universe? If all the beliefs of the Allah, the Ishwar, the God and the waheguru are right or one of them is true?

Not to talk of the universe the sky and the stars, but I'm trying to make the readers understand with a simple example. Being a nature lover I usually visit the pleasant valley in India in the Himachal pardesh. I have the chances to meet hundreds of persons who tell me that there are many intruder places there where the man has not yet reached. It means that man has not been able to reach the places that he can easily see. Now imagine the number of places on this earth that are untouched & unknown to the human beings. Despite that the man who is totally ignorant about the secrets & powers of nature, at the same time is blood thirsty just over the different names and forms of the almighty. Today the man has become thirsty to shed the blood of the man just for the sake of religion and community. If a dictator Mughal emperor had attacked India and damaged the temples then the Hindutvavadi powers also felt to retaliate the same on December 6,1992 by demolishing the Babri Mosque in Ayodhya, even after the hundreds of years in a democratic government. These parties that favor so called nationalism did not care for its after effects on the communal harmony. They replied the activities of the foreign invaders that may spread fear and distrust among the minorities.

It was good if it had ended here. This incident of communalism of December 6, 1992, resulted in Mumbai bomb blast & Godhra train accident. 58, innocent persons were burnt alive in this terrible accident. After that there was the evil of communalism in Gujrat & the minorities were great sufferers that reminded of the bloody partition of 1947. Today this communalism and terrorism opinion is fast spreading in India. Man has become the enemy of the man. Now all holly places such as temples, Mosques, Churches and Graveyards are being aimed at by the enemies of the humanity. It is obvious that if a conservative Hindu is teaching his son only the Hinduism then a person who considers himself the custodian of the Islam wants to make his son only a Muslim. In India, the Christian missionaries are always being accused of that they are indulging in change of religion. Among the accusations being leveled for many decades mother Teresa won the award of the Bharat Ratan and noble peace prize for her constructive and humanitarian work. These powers that are against the spread of Christianity could not produce any other person who could be a great lover of humanity like mother Teresa. But the aggressive among them were talked about to insult the Hinduism for raping the Christian nun and burning the live people. These so called nationalist tried to show their power by burning the churches.

Similarly, the people who call the Islam a religion that teaches peace, love and harmony are attempting to blot the Islam religion by indulging in terrorist activities. These people who call themselves Jehadi are misguided and are enemy of the Islam, their own religion because of their inhuman activities. But in all these negative circumstances it is a matter of satisfaction that every common man of all the religions & community want to keep themselves away from the violent activities. In the dark age of inflation & uncertainty of future, a common man wants to fight for his livelihood, welfare of his family and his existence. A common man doesn't have the time to come out to take on sword or trident in the name of religion and have training to manufacture bomb or to get training of AK47. But it is sorrowful that in spite of all these there is violent news common to hear, that move the common man.

In fact the shameful incidents of rape, burning & killing during the terrorism and other violent accidents that are heard are backed by that terrorism that is not visible. It doesn't leave any proof so that it can come in the grip of law. And these are the sources that give water to the difference of opinions. In every community the plant of difference of opinions is being watered somewhere by religious leaders, some where by the political organizations and some where through communal organizations. It is pity to say that somewhere there seems the important role by our writer's and columnists. In my views, an honest writer and columnist should not write the fiery articles or columns to incite a particular opinion, group or community. He should not show down upon the other one.

This is the only remedy to avoid the powers that are attempting to polarize the society in the name of religion and communalism. That is people should not be taken in because of their guise of religion. Second is to ban the center that is running the dangerous mission of organization of communities. Government should ban it immediately. Not only the government should ban it but it should be boycotted also by the society. The common people should keep in mind if a person may be from any cast & community and teaches others to unite the community, then that person or organization is certainly encouraging communalism on the name of unity. The need is to listen to those persons who talk of the uniting the society and not breaking it. They should talk of communal unity and not of communal hatred. The progress of the country lies in communal unity & communal harmony, not in ill wills, hatred, fear and terrorism.
