Ter­ror Strikes

India Today - - MAIL -

Ma­sood Azhar’s lat­est call of war against In­dia must be taken at face value (“Re­turn of a Fire Breather", Fe­bru­ary 17). With elec­tions just around the cor­ner, the ter­ror­ist is bound to at­tempt some mis­chief. In­dia must be pre­pared to tackle any un­to­ward in­ci­dent so that Azhar’s de­signs of spread­ing ter­ror are nipped in the bud. Co­op­er­a­tion from Pak­istan can’t be ex­pected as the coun­try is the very source of in­spi­ra­tion for ter­ror­ist ac­tiv­i­ties on In­dian soil.

NEEHARIKA SINHA, via email Ma­sood Azhar’s vit­ri­olic di­a­tribe against In­dia at Ba­hawalpur is an ap­par­ent bid to dis­cour­age the people of Jammu & Kash­mir from ex­er­cis­ing their fran­chise. Azhar, in ob­vi­ous con­nivance with the Pak­istan army, has shrewdly cho­sen the oc­ca­sion of the first an­niver­sary of the hang­ing of Afzal Guru and the launch of Guru’s book, a com­pi­la­tion of his prison notes, to kin­dle an­tiIn­dia sen­ti­ments amongst the people of Jammu & Kash­mir.
