Uniting India: A Peace Model

India is under the threat of terrorism. Whether it is parliament attack on December 13, 2001, Mumbai terrorism incident on 26 Nov 2008, or the latest Pathankot air base attack by terrorists on January 2, 2016, some policemen, army men and innocent civilians died. Few terrorists were nabbed or killed. Prime Minister and other ministers shed tears for the lives lost and showered praises on the soldiers getting killed while offering the valiant fight. Our government always kept on crying for international pressure on Pakistan to stop terrorism. Pakistan always denied allegations. Media came out with headlines for few days on each such incident until those headlines were taken over by another important news item. There is silence for some time. Calendar awaits another terrorism related incident. Can India war with Pakistan? Answer is No. Can India remain silent? Obviously the answer is No. In the US, when the twin towers in New York were reduced to rubbles with planes used as bombs as a matter of conspiracy by Osama Bin Laden in September 2001, the American President came out with an act called The Patriot Act, 2001 urging the people of America to pledge their love and loyalty to the country and ensure that no non-state actor is allowed to promote anti-nationalism in America. The result has been that America has not seen any terrorism related incidence thereafter. American nationalism is offering the answer. In India, since independence, terrorism related incidences have taken away lives far more than the number of people lost in the wars. There is a need to ponder why and how the terrorists are able to get into the soil of India. Why and how the anti-national elements are able to rise on this land. Why the country is often seeing violent incidents killing innocent people whether it is by terrorists, or Naxals or people belonging to any community or faith. At times unfortunate expressions like Islamic terrorism and Hindu terrorism are finding niche in the newspapers. And solution does not seem to be very easy for the government of the day. Amidst simmering tension between India and China in 1961, Sampoornanand Committee constituted by Jawaharlal Nehru did make an attempt to find out ways and means to promote nationalism in the mind of younger generation. But that was not very successful because of abysmal low literacy level and country was the last thing in the minds of people scurrying for jobs and financial security.
