Bomb blasts in Delhi

Filed under: Across the Universe — Tags: , , — Chinmayi @ 8:48 pm

Five bombs have gone off in Delhi, on Saturday evening in crowded places. A bomb was found in a popular children’s park, and fortunately was defused before it could do any harm. 

An email claiming responsibility for the violence was apparently been sent by a fundamentalist group twenty minutes after the attack. The email will probably lend a communal colour to the attack. As they react, people may forget that the bombs were at crowded places where people from any community might have been present and that the target was not any specific group but innocent civilians in general. 

I hope that this will not translate into retaliation and escalating violence or into unnecessarily repressive legal measures. And I hope that this senseless killing stops some time soon.
