Boston : Live and Let Live April 17, 2013

Posted by Shahir in International Politics, Life, Politics, Uncategorized.

“Any time bombs are used to target innocent civilians, it’s an act of terror” – Obama’s revelation.

How true. Any time, whoever plans, authorizes and supports such acts of terror are terrorists. And that applies whether the bombs are trigged in a gas canister or in unmanned drones, whether in Boston or in Baluchistan, whether civilians are hurt using a sling-shot or from a state funded arsenal, terrorism is terrorism; whether wearing a turban and living in caves, or an Armani suit and living in capitals, terrorists are terrorists. Pain of loss of family in Boston – whether maimed at the finishing line of their marathon or of those who lost their beloved ones in their cross-roads of life, whether in the streets or in schools, intensity of loss remains the same.

That’s what the ordinary public across the world kept drumming out loud since so many years, to reach the ears of those inflicting this pain – both the state-terrorists and those in the hide-outs- the Bushes and Cheneys and Rumsfelds and Blairs and Abu Sayafs and Talibans – to stop inflicting this pain of terror, and to live and let live.

For God’s sake, Live and Let Live.

The world will only be a better place when the political machineries are revamped with Human Values than the greed it is now governed by- the transparent greed for material wealth that the few men in the state capital is so blinded to pursue at the cost of the lives of many millions, legacy of which has left us in a quagmire of pain and death – though it might sound as an utopia!

Utopia. How sad, that people of power demand others to live in their ideal of utopia by the use of force. Utopia can not be achieved by the use of violence. How tragic that people participating in a race, gathering in the streets, have been targeted by a terrorist. My heart goes out to all innocent victims of violence.
