So even as families are searching for their loved ones in Jaipur. Even as the nation is in a state of shock (if they can get their minds off cricket), and the grief of mothers that lost their children is not over, the Politicians have stepped in. The Rajasthan Chief Minister is claiming that the intelligence reports were deliberately vague, like ‘weather reports she said’ and advised Sonia Gandhi not to try and come to the state to do photo ops for political mileage. But of course the top brass of the BJP was there, doing immense amount of photo ops for their own political benefit. I hope and pray that the people pf this country see these political acts for what they really are. Our politicians often turn into parasites on the miseries and grief of their own people.
And other than constant shots repeated over and over again of hapless grieving mothers without their permission, what may I ask is the top agenda for our media ? Will the IPL go on ! Of course the Media says that is what the people want. Has the Media then so desensitized our minds so much that we do not actually care ? Are we what the media blames us to be ? Like when I was making films in India years ago, I was told that films were bad because that is how the people wanted them. Like the people were some stupid uneducated ignorant mass. Well, I do not believe that. Politicians, Billionaires, Media Moguls better learn that their Billions are made because of these very people – and so for f—s sake – respect them !!
Back to the main point. I sincerely believe that anti terrorism and the internal security of the life of our people cannot be left in the hands of politicians or the corrupt political system anymore. !00 people died and 200 people were injured. Why ? Because their are different parties at the centre and the state, and in the political squabbling refuse to share crucial intelligence information. There is only one way out. If the blame lies with ‘foreign elements’ then the fight no longer exists on our borders. The enemy has brought the fight inside the borders. The counter terrorism and intelligence MUST be taken away form the Stae Governments and the Home Ministry, and handed to the Army. That is the only choice we have.
