Let's get a few things straight.
Terrorism is not an act of 'cowardice' or 'desperation'. It is an act of cold-blooded terror. Politicians who keep repeating the same hackneyed lines are basically trying to avoid responsibility by disowning failure to crush terrorism. #Pulwama 1
It would be best if politicians representing the Government and the Opposition keep quiet after terrorist attacks. Anything they say is unadulterated bakwas. Nation is tired of glycerine tears for shahid jawans and insincere promises of retaliatory action. #Pulwama 2
Jammu & Kashmir is effectively under Central rule. Today's suicide bombing resulting in horrific deaths of jawans indicates an abysmal failure of intelligence agencies. Responsibility devolves on Modi Sarkar. Bluster cannot hide this fact. #Pulwama 3
Between 2014 and 2019 Modi Sarkar has shown little spine in upping the ante against #Pakistan. Between inaction and war there is a vast zone of coercive action. Successive Govts have sidestepped this zone. Ditto this Govt. Pussilanimity is not policy. #Pulwama 4
Problem with our Govt is whoever the PM, emphasis is on seeking international approval for good behaviour and not placing national interest over what the world thinks. No PM of India (barring Indira Gandhi) has shown the courage to stand alone. #Pulwama 5
At UN our reps thunder that #Pakistan is #Terroristan, a terrorist state, which is a fact. At home our Govt disallows a Private Member's Bill seeking the designation of Pakistan as a terrorist state. This is disingenuous, deceitful and duplicitous. #Pulwama 6
Even as we grieve for the CRPF jawans who died in today's bombing, we must remember that powerful nations have the capacity to absorb punishment as well as to mercilessly inflict punishment. It is for India to decide whether it is a powerful nation or a weakling. #Pulwama 7
Lastly, do please stop pretending that terrorism is an atheist crime. It is not. Unless you are clear on the fundamentals you will never succeed in winning the war on terror. This is not a PR game for political pointscoring. It is about the future of #India. #Pulwama 8
What kind of stupid question is this? As Prime Minister PV Narasimha Rao sucked up to the vile Robin Raphel, allowed the Hurriyat to come into being, fed biriyani to terrorists before giving them safe passage and a lot more. #Pulwama 9
No Adil, you did not go to heaven. You were fooled into blowing yourself up. At this moment you are charred bits of bone and flesh, your intestines rotting on the wayside. #Pulwama 10
Revenge is a dish best served piping hot. Revenge is a dish best served warm. Revenge is a dish best served cold. Revenge is a dish best served chilled...
With such knowledge, what forgiveness?
Who will tell eyeball-hungry media in #India that broadcasting footage or printing photographs of mourning families and inconsolable widows and orphans is precisely what jihadists want? This is oxygen for terrorism; it shows terror has the power to break a nation's morale.
