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
