During the Shiv Sena-SRK controversy, the security forces were dispersed to protect theatres and the establishment’s full attention was on law and order. The terrorists used this opportunity to trigger the blast.”
To all Shiv Sena supporters: It is one thing to ASK people not to see a movie based on one’s own feeling, beliefs, or morals. It’s quite another to threaten people to the extent that police have to be called away from worthwhile duties to protect us (the erstwhile every day, law abiding public) while we go about our daily lives. Unfortunately, terrorists take advantage of the ‘internal terror’ unleashed by forces like Shiv Sena. While I’m sure that the Sena realises this, I’m doubtful over whether or not they care. Violating law and order and fanning communal passions invite external forces to disrupt our entire system. Nobody denies their right to hold peaceful agitation within the framework of the Constitution, but to do so in a manner that violates everyone’s right to LIVE is another thing entirely.
Whether you like it or not, Shiv Sena ALSO contributed to the death and destruction at German Bakery. While our police forces were busy protecting us from the very real threat of attacks from Shiv Sena, others took full advantage and attacked.
If you do not believe that there was any real threat by the Shiv Sena, then I urge you to do the research yourself.
I find this an excellent place to start.
Four days later we see them completely ignoring their part or responsibility for ANY of this tragedy with the following article.
On behalf of Puneites, the Dhars, all those dead and suffering and us left to pick up the pieces, I call for Shiv Sena’s apology and respectfully request that they start being a part of the solution rather than part of the problem.
