Re: Jamia University to defend students held on terror charges
Who is terrorist?
Let me not go in to defining this term.. But, i hope, you wont have any doubt in agreeing that a person, who places a bomb in public places to kill people is a terrorist. And i hope, you would agree that those people, who also provide logistical, and financial support to such gruesome acts is also a terrorist.
How do you define a person innocent?
You have termed those arrested people as innocent. But, how do you define a person as innocent?
Is innocent measured in terms of lack of proof? If so, then lakhs of people in india, is innocent because there is no proof for the crime they committed..
Normally polic act upon intelligence inputs, and take actions agains those they suspect..
In the case of terrorists, they are highly intelligent and talented to hack a wifi system which even a normal IT person cannot do. When they could plan such meticulously, what is the assurance, that they would not have destroyed all evidence for their act, if they are let free...
Secondly, we can take your argument of innocent for a normal criminal.. But can we do the same in case of terrorist. Suppose, we release them for lack of proof.. what is the risk factor that they would again cause major bomb blastt killing again scores of people..
So in such cases of dready terrorism, its logical that we take some action for a greater purpose, even if some innocent is affected. If those people really care for the country, they would have proved their innocence, instead of issuing such ambigous argument.
