Mumbai's July 2011 blasts and Subramanian Swamy's hate-mongering
Subramanian Swamy wrote an incendiary piece in DNA, offering his remedies for terrorism. I was aghast, struck by his shameless opportunism and incitement, fanning the flames in an already surcharged environment. Like many, I too protested to the Editor for providing space to Swamy’s hate-mongering. In response, I was invited to write - this is about the spirit of Mumbai and the soul of India.
Swamy's Swamy's hate-mongering article is on http://www.dnaindia.com/analysis/analysis_how-to-wipe-out-islamic-terror_1566203-all (published on July 16, 3 days after the blasts)
My rejoinder-response was published the next day - http://www.dnaindia.com/analysis/comment_politics-of-hate-will-never-define-india-part-i_1566502
