Everyone in India and the world woke up to a rude shock in the back drop of the attack on various locations in Paris. Paris, where not long ago saw another shocking incident ie Charlie Hebdo. The loss of lives today far more, the manner in which lives were lost were as dastardly as the former. Consolation and condemnation are too weak a word to represent humanity’s emotions today.
The shock, the families of the victims must be going through is Unimaginable. The least humanity expect is to bring the guilty to justice and perhaps put in place surveillance measures that would prevent further attacks as these.
THERE IS ONLY ONE SIDE!
The initial pointers point out to ISIS, a inhuman organization having its roots in the conflict ridden zones of Iraq and Syria spreading it’s wings to the peaceful parts of the world.
The attacks have once again proved the cowardly nature of the organization which seeks to take innocent lives and not able to fight a military force. ‘Jihadi John’ killed recently by drone strike’s puts to perspective the before mentioned statement.
Today, humanity should stand shoulder to shoulder and isolate the inhuman from human. There is no sides to choose, there is only one side and that is of humanity, compassion and brotherhood.
Any deviation from total unity, any impulsive reactions that would cost property and human lives would be tantamount to a terrorists victory. Let the Paris attacks strengthen the resolve of Western nations in defeating ISIS and let it strengthen humanity’s resolve in defeating hate.
The Logical Indian shares this moment of grief with the victims of Paris attacks. We convey our most sincere condolences to the families of the victims at this moment of great loss. An attack on Paris is an attack on all. If there are prayers to be prayed or tears to be shed or thoughts to be thought, let it be for Paris.
