The attack on Swaminaarayan mandir in Gandhi Nagar by terrorists deserves severest of condemnation. Such insane actions are adding salt to the injuries of Gujarati community. One must remember that these terrorists do not represent any community, and they are the worst enemies of the community they presume they are representing. Most of the Muslim leadership has severely condemned this crime. It is not the time to have bandhs but efforts which will act as balm to the wounds of Gujarat. Here one recalls the tragic incidents of Mumbai riots (92-93) when riots, were followed by the bomb blasts, which further aggravated the agony of the community. What Gujarat needs a healing touch, which is not possible so far as Mr. Modi continues to spew venom against the minorities through the speeches being made during his 'Gaurav' Rath yatra. Such actions of his are intimidating the weaker sections of society. Elements from amongst the threatened community are likely to resort to insane actions more often. Mr. Modi who has been the major defaulter in the Gujarat violence must be sacked forthwith to restore the faith of people in the democratic norms.
