Mumbai 7/11: A Week Thereafter
|by Dr. Subhash Kapila|
Mumbai, 7/11, the horrific snuffing out of over 200 innocent Indian lives and over 700 wounded, by terrorism bombings on the suburban railway line has seared the psyche of India at large. It has seared the psyche of the Indian Public in the same manner that 9/11 seared the psyche of the minds of United States citizens at large.
A week thereafter of the Mumbai 7/11 bombings the picture obtainable is as under:
The Indian intelligence agencies are not amateurs. They have been dealing with Pakistan sponsored proxy war for over 20 years now. This author refuses to believe that firm leads and evidence are not available with Indian intelligence agencies.
If the Indian Government is not making public the assessments and evidence provided by Indian intelligence agencies then the conclusion is obvious. Indian Government silence on this is reflective of the fact that political consideration of minority vote banks is the main hurdle.
Adoption of this line of policy action by the Government weakens India's case in international fora besides encouraging doubts about the Government's sincerity and credibility to seriously tackle India's terrorism threat which now seems to be manifesting itself as a potent combination of external and internal participation of Islamic fundamentalist organizations.
