This is a national crisis rather than the crisis of a particular State or city. We should all learn a lesson from America, where after one attack, there are no more attacks. This is because they have a consensus across all political parties. They are unanimous in dealing with the situation.
I accept these incidents (the remarks of certain politicians) as unfortunate one. Inner party discipline should categorically reject and seek a complete apology from party members. We should also try to understand the human element behind the sentiments of these statements but they should be blown out of proportion.
There is bound to be a political consensus on such a national crisis because if we don’t have a nation left, who will be left to practice politics? There is a large gap between politicians and the people. We must find ways to bridge this gap as soon as possible. We need to have an all-empowered and impartial body, free from day to day political pressures, to fight terror.
