The newspapers today are full of the recent Maoist attacks on the CRPF personnel, resulting in 76 of them being killed. It is at these times that I feel ashamed of being an Indian. Don’t take me wrong here, I am very glad that I am an Indian, I like our culture, our values, our food (especially) and all other things. But I can’t tolerate this soft stand that the Indian government has a habit of adopting on issues which require a firm handling. Why should we see our security personnel being killed by a rag-tag bunch of bandits? We should learn a lesson or two from the global precedents. Look at the way the Americans destroyed the rule of Saddam Husain or the Afghanistan incident. Now I am not saying that what they did was correct in any sense but the idea here is to adopt the firm “No-nonsense” policy against any threat to the nation from any invaders; be them these bandits or China. Look at SriLanka… Their firm handling of LTTE got them off for good. Now that’s the way we should handle the situations and not play by the vote bank politics of the leftists.
We have top class defense, strategy personnel in India. India, as a country, is known for people with humungous brain powers. Why don’t we utilize a fraction of it in such projects and eradicate these bas****s completely.
In this case, I hope that all the political parties get together for a full and final eradication of such anti national forces. I, for one, am all for it.
