In the world of terror

Last night’s bomb blasts in Delhi were a crude reminder of how far we still need to go, as the human race. As though natural calamities aren’t already enough for us to fight against, we are even struggling to fight things that we can have complete control over. Fear, terror, death, suffering, hatred. Is that going to be the new face of our “evolved” human society? I suppose the following statement, by the terrorist organization behind the attack, puts our entire belief system into perspective: “We the Indian Mujahideen, ask Allah, the Almighty, to accept from us these nine explosions which were planned to be executed in the holy month of Ramadan.” I can’t help but ask how ‘the Almighty’ can be a silent spectator to such atrocity.
