GUWAHATI SERIAL BOMB BLASTS CONDEMNED
We, strongly condemn the ghastly serial bomb blasts that took place in Guwahati on Thursday, 30th October 2008.
We sympathize with all the victims of these blasts very specially, with the many who have lost their loved one / s.
We ask those responsible for these dastardly acts, to eschew violence immediately and to stop further destruction to the fabric of our society.
Terrorism is the weapon of cowards......Any act of violence has no place in the efforts to build a more humane, just and peaceful society. The escalating violence in various parts of the country (Assam, Jammu and Kashmir, Orissa, Karnataka, Maharashtra) is a cause of great concern. Some State Governments, some political parties and their terrorist outfits even encourage violence against minorities and other vulnerable sections. This is extremely dangerous for the future of our country.
We urge both, the Central and the State Governments, to ensure that those responsible for the terror activities in Guwahati and other parts of India are brought to book immediately. The Government must enable thorough investigations into the Malegaon, Modasa terrorist activities and the use of military space for the activities of terror groups.
Further those in authority must also address in a conscientious manner, the demands of the victims, the exploited and the marginalized, in order to establish a society which is more just, equitable and humane.
