“Hyderabad Bomb Blasts and Political Games in India” - Professor M.S.Rao

“I am proud to belong to a religion which has taught the world tolerance and universal acceptance.” – Swami Vivekananda.

The recent bomb blasts in Hyderabad indicate growing terrorism in India which is the result of the provocative statements by political leaders in India and also the handiwork of terrorists across the border. It must be condemned by all right thinking people where innocent people who were waiting to go back to their homes were killed in blasts. Was it due to intelligence failure? Media reports that the central government warned the state government about the attacks in Hyderabad well in advance. Of course, it is always tough to predict how culprits operate as they change their strategies and tactics to create terror and panic among the people to make their presence felt.

As usual, the politicians poured to the bomb site with the ruling party defending itself while the opposition parties blaming the government for inaction. It is a routine blame game and people forget this tragic event as Indians have short memory.

Currently ‘hate speeches’ by politicians has become common in India where courts take immediate action against such politicians and put them behind the bars. But politicians come out on bail and do their things as usual.  Judiciary must take stringent action against unscrupulous politicians who deliver hate speeches and create differences among the people in the name of religion, region, caste and language. 

Some of the Indian politicians play several games to ensure their survival.  They do actions in such a way that they make their presence felt mostly by raising religious, regional, linguistic and caste cards. They know that this is the best way to survive in a country like India. It is for the people to spot such unscrupulous politicians and reject them in elections.  

Indian politicians seldom talk about solutions. They spend a lot of time by attending the problems rather than addressing them. Even though there are some good politicians in India who have a sincere heart to make the difference to the society, the other political parties will not allow good things happen for fear of losing their votes in elections.

We need to promote universal fraternity and brotherhood championed by Swami Vivekananda. It was Swami Vivekananda who enlightened the world that India is a melting pot where people of all faiths live amicably with fraternity and brotherhood.  He traveled on foot across India to spread religious tolerance, social harmony and universal brotherhood.  We need another youth leader like Swami Vivekananda to mobilize youth and other citizens to promote universal brotherhood and fraternity and achieve economic prosperity.

“Those who really feel universal brotherhood do not talk much, but their very actions speak aloud.” – Swami Vivekananda.

Life is great!
