Terrorist Has No Caste and Religion
party leaders would get united without mudslinging for the cause.Bhadrakrishna Goswami, a prominent socio-cultural leader declared that terrorism simply destroy humanity. Remembering the terror of Assam serial blasts, Goswami appealed to all democratic forces to get united to fight the menace. The leader of anti-terror group, APW, Abhijit Sharma commented that Jehadi elements had joined hands with the United Liberation Front of Asom under the guidance of ISI for continuing disruptive activities in India. He asserted that ULFA was involved in the Assam blasts as a supportive force, if not as the master mind.Amidst the crisis of Islamist terrorism, Munin Bayan, a senor journalist, analyzed how the ambience has created lot of confusion among the people in general and media persons in particular. He described with his belief that Islam never allow such acts of terrorism. Anjali Daimary, a social activist emphasized on creating strong public opinion against the failure of the administration.The meeting in one of its resolutions, had called upon the Government to speak in one voice about who are the culprits behind the October 30 blasts and the Darrang-Udalguri clashes instead of sowing suspicions and mutual distrust among various sections in the society. It also asked the authority to identify the culprits after a speedy probe, make the results public and mete out exemplary punishment to them."The helplessness of the Government and the confusing role played by the opposition parties have not only eroded the confidence of the people, but also and diminished their faith in the political system, the citizens pointed out and urged the political parties to rise above petty politics of power and join hands together on issues of terrorism and threat to the nation's security," added in the resolution.In another resolution, it analyzed, "Since illegal foreigners issue is at the root of many a problem in Assam, the Central and State Governments must take steps to seal the international border, prepare a National Register of Citizens and detect and deport foreigners. The citizens also urged the Government to raise the issue of terrorism and illegal migration in various international for to create pressure on
the neighbouring countries responsible for exporting troubles to the State."It may be mentioned that Assam turned into a place of protest and demonstrations on the aftermath of the serial blasts. The civil society and advocacy groups have already taken various agitational programmes to condemn the incident. If one group organized public meetings, the other went on with candle light processions in Guwahati and other places of Assam. If a section preferred for the street corner prayers, other went for rigorous and comprehensive discussion on the terror issue.Northeast is no stranger to terror attacks, but the latest serial blasts in Assam had shaken the psyche of the people. For the first time, they feel helpless and total insecured. Dance of death gripped the ambience and the citizens went on self imposing curfew for many hours. After the historic Assam agitation, one witnessed such a deserted Guwahati city for the first time. Closed shops, no vehicles with crowd on the roads and the unbelievable silence grabbed the ambience of the city.Shockingly, the explosions took place in the high security and crowded areas of Guwahati including the front of DC court, Kachari (where in fact two deputy commissioners of Kamrup district and Kamrup-Metro sit; and also adjacent to Chief Judicial Magistrate court, Guwahati).Similarly the location of Pan Bazar, where another bomb exploded is very near to Pan Bazar police station. This is also crowded market place. The third one exposed in the busy Ganeshguri area. This place is near to the high security Secretariat and Legislative Assembly building and also a market place. Three another blasts took place in Kokrajhar, two in Barpeta and one in Bongaigaon district in lower Assam. Significantly all the explosions took place within few minutes after 11.15 a.m.Others who were present and spoke on citizens' meet include GS Kalita, Benu Barua, Hiten Mahanta, Alaka Buragohain, S. Tahbilder, Jahnavi Goswami, Ranen Kumar Goswami, Sabita Lahkar, Sumitra Hazarika, Pramod Chandra Bhattacharya, Mitradev Sharma, Kishore Giri, Ranjan Baurah, Dhanjit Kakoti, Jawarlal Saha, Manoranjana Gupta, SN Rahman, Biman Hazarika, Dipen Bayan etc. Before the meeting starts, one minute silence was observed by the participants for those killed on the terror attacks.
