On September 13th the capital of India was rocked and terrorized by serial blasts. This is the fourth bombing incident targeting innocent people this year after Jaipur, Bangalore, and Ahmedabad.
Aaman Lamba reports in Desicritics:
Five bombs went off in succession in Karol Bagh, Connaught Place, and Greater Kailash I, killing at least 18 people and injuring over 90. Two live bombs have also been reportedly defused…. .
The relatively new Indian Mujahideen claimed responsibility for these blasts….sending an e-mail to media channels minutes before the first blast.
Now we will highlight some of the reactions of Indian bloggers :
Ahmed Hussain stated in a twitter message:
The turn of events @ Delhi has left me saddened. The perpetrators hiding behind the cloak of religion are doing themselves no good nor Islam.
Interim Thoughts sneered at the Government's usual statement in response to this bombing:
The statement consisting of 135
nuclear armed army divisionswords rained on the attackers yesterday late in the evening. Future terror attacks have been averted thanks to the statement which is a strongmix of old words and a terror template. The government was able to ready the statement at short notice after changing dates, place and number of victims. Terrorists have had sleepless nights based on the strong words used in the template.
Cutting the Chai contemplates on how the general citizens are reacting to these blasts after blasts:
What is worrying me now is that I don't understand the emotions that I'm feeling while watching the visuals on live television and reporters and anchors repeating the same thing over and over again.
Perhaps I've become comfortably numb. And that's a dangerous thing.
The Great Bong slams at the numbness of the society against these barbaric terrorist acts:
Do we, as a nation, understand that the whole “spirit of the city” feel-good is nothing but an euphemism for people becoming so inured to flying ball-bearings and bloody corpses that they accept terrorist violence as a fact of life, like traffic jams and power cuts?
But more than these the general citizens need to be more conscious of the situation and keep vigil against all threats including exposing those who anyway support these terrorists and their cause.
