New Delhi Bomb Blast in High Court at 10:15am on 7 September 2011 leaving 11 Dead and 80 Injured: Indian Government not yet declared any war against terrorism

Ashburn, Virginia, USA

- Harish Jharia

Terrorists have successfully made a powerful bomb blast at the Delhi High Court reception counter at 10:15am leaving 11 dead and 80 injured. This place is situate in the most sensitive area near the president’s palace (Rashtrapati Bhawan), Parliament House, North and south blocks, Supreme Court and the India Gate in its immediate neighborhood. 

In fact this is the area from where the largest democracy in the world is ruled and where the ministers, MPs and senior bureaucrats reside. Nevertheless, the dead and injured were not the rulers. They in fact were the ones who work in the courts and the common people who use to come to the courts for seeking justice. 

Prime Minister Man Mohan Singh, who is on an official visit to Bangla Desh, condemned the incident and expressed sympathy to the victims. He also declared compensation of Rs 2,00,000/- and Rs 1,00,000/- to the dead and injured respectively. Home Minister Chidambaram read a written statement in the parliament elaborating the detailed data about the incident. Delhi Chief Minister Shila Dixit visited the injured and declared compensations worth Rs 5,00,000/- and Rs 2,00,000/- respectively to the dead and injured. 

The Prime Minister appealed all the political parties to come together and fight collectively against terrorism. He said that ‘we’ will not succumb to this pressure but did not take the country in confidence by assuring the people about any effective actions proposed to be taken by him or by his government for avenging this ghastly act or evading them in future.

The Indian ministers are issuing monotonous statements or declaring compensations to the victims, rather than taking appropriate actions for awarding exemplary punishments and taking solid remedial measures against future recurrence of such incidents. They do not realize the risk and danger the common people and the public places are exposed to, because, they stay in heavily guarded houses and offices and enjoy extreme personal security at the cost of the revenues collected from the people of India.  

We appeal to the Prime Minister and the government that: 
  1. He and his government should declare an open war against the terrorist outfits that have waged a secret war against India, attacking at its different cities at regular intervals of 2 – 3 months. 
  2. The government should restrict deployment of excessive security personnel on personal security of ministers and dignitaries, to the minimal and divert the troops to public place that are more vulnerable to terrorist attacks. 
  3. India will have to learn from Europe and America who have crushed terrorism effectively.
  4. Indian authorities should not recommend mercy pleas to the President of India in case of the terrorists who have been awarded death sentences by the judiciary. 
  5. The President’s secretariat should also take immediate actions on such cases in order to avoid delays. 
  6. Indian authorities should ensure that the legal cases running against terrorists should be dispensed with on war-footing and the culprits be punished immediately after the courts judgment.  
  7. Politicians, like Congress spokesperson Digvijay Singh, should be careful while issuing politically motivated statements like calling the globally condemned terrorist Osama Bin Laden as ‘Osama ji’ (respected Osama Sir).
  8. Security outfits, intelligence agencies and antiterrorist organizations should work effectively and attentively in co-ordination among themselves for 24 hours a day and 7 days a week.
  9. The repeated terrorists’ attacks are the results of failure of RAW, NIA, IB, Delhi police and other security outfits including military intelligence. They will have to prove their worth.
