Rise above petty politics
P SENTHIL SARAVANA DURAI
The Taliban attacks in Kabul are condemnable. All the politicians should endorse the fact that terrorism has no religion and that no religion supports the terror acts. Political parties should desist from playing the communal card while dealing with the terror menace.
The real problem in the fight against terrorism lies in acts like linking terrorists to religions and viceversa. We should break the myth of linking terrorists to the religious communities. A rational and scientific approach is the need of the hour in matters of dealing with terrorism.
Now is the time for the political class to stop playing petty politics over the terror menace. Unity is the keyword in matters of tackling terrorism and ceaseless and combined efforts are needed to fight the menace. Therefore, countries should bury their differences and stand united against terrorism. —Via email
