Mumbai Aftermath: The Rats Play Even Before Pyres Finish Burning

There are days when even the most law-abiding citizen feels the need for vigilante action. There are days one wishes that we could react with bullets rather than ballots. Today is one of those days, when I fervently wish there would be mobs lynching some of the political rats that are prancing about on the embers of the funeral pyres of the soldiers and victimes of Mumbai.

The reason for my anger is the overt lack of concern that our politicians are displaying:

1. Deputy CM of Maharashtra started it by stating that "in a big city there are a few small incidents."

2. The Maharashtra CM Vilarsao Deshmukh compounded it by visiting a wrecked Taj in company of his film star son and a film producer/director. And then in a sickening act of effrontery, he proceeded to harangue the media for questioning his (lack of) judgement.

3. And as if that were not enough, Kerala CM Achutanandan insulted Major Sandeep Unnikrishnan's bereaved family. In fact I am so disgusted that I refuse to repeat his sickening remarks in this blog.

And of course the above list does not even include a sneering Muqhtar Abbas Naqvi, an opportunist Narendra Modi, a vile Amar Singh and of course the usual jerk Laloo Prasad Yadav.

In a just world, these politicians would be tried and punished for sedition. Yet in the world as it stands today, they not only go unpunished but in fact continue speaking with no sensitivity, concern or intelligence.

In a just world, these seditious rats would be hanged by citizens right at the Gateway of India as a lesson for all others.

In disgust: Satyamev Jayate.
