Ayodhya again ...

Ayodhya is back in the news again, and in such a major way. Yet again, as in December 1992, it's plain terrorism that has propelled this historic city to our TV screens. One kind of madness is trying to answer another (same?) kind of madness.

I really really hope things do not go out of controll in the coming days. Our immediate track record is not something that's comforting. Togadias and Giriraj Kishores have started spewing venom as usual. Advani and Modi are getting ready to make abundant political capital. Jaswant Singh has asked for Home Minister's resignation. They have already called for a nation wide protest and a UP bandh. All these when the security personnel posted at Ayodhya have successfully foiled a terrorist attempt to barge into the disputed site.

Nitin Pai of the Acorn is spot on when he says

    [LK Advani's] call for nationwide public protests is not only dangerous in its own right, it will play right into the hands of the terrorists.
When will this ever end, and what can we do to stop this madness?

This will end when people are educated and the next generation of learned youngsters take social responsibility. Till then, this raping of india will continue......

for god's sake it would be a lot easier to go on a shooting spree and finish these fanatics once and for all !!!

This, unfortunately will continue till politicians (or dictators or whatever... I am not one to decide on that) from both sides of the border keep on taking advantage of the situation at hand, and use the blood of the people to get at their (petty?) political motives.

Isn't it so clear, that a few more deaths do not at all matter to the politicians? and they only benefit from all this rabble-rousing... so of course they will add some more fuel to the fire.

I am sounding fatalistic I know, but I don't see this ending. Can't you see, real agendas are few, and are difficult to implement anyway.
