PASSING through a worse predicament, Pakistanis can well appreciate the outrage that Indians would be feeling at the series of bombs that exploded in the busiest business centres of New Delhi on Saturday. The blasts killed 22 persons and injured more than 100, leaving behind a trail of misery for the bereaved families, which must have stood shocked at the sudden turn of events in their lives, and a deep sense of insecurity for the rest of the citizens. As a result, the authorities have tightened the security measures in different parts of the country, including the southern state of Hyderabad where about 700,000 Hindus were scheduled to take part in a religious festival yesterday. Pakistani leaders, including the president, prime minister and PML-N Quaid Mian Nawaz Sharif, have strongly condemned the deadly incidents. Newspaper reports suggest that a militant, disaffected group known as Indian Mujahideen, which had earlier also committed similar criminal acts, has claimed responsibility for these explosions and the police have taken 10 persons into custody on suspicion of involvement. If they are the right catch, they might provide the lead to the investigators to the real culprits and the motive behind these acts of violence would most likely be revealed. One hopes and wishes that the Indians do not fall into the old convenient groove of putting the blame on Pakistan. Considering the problems Islamabad at present finds itself surrounded by from all sides, no Pakistan policymaker worth the name should be trying to do anything that holds the prospects of further complicating the situation. Before jumping to any conclusion that might point a finger at Islamabad, the Indian authorities would do well to take into account the views of a senior leader of BJP Arun Jaitley that the profile of the bombers over the years had changed indicating that the attacks could not be blamed on outsiders and "home-grown terrorists are on the increase...we cannot shut our eyes to that reality." India, like several other countries, has a host of dissent groups, which are unhappy at the way they have been treated by their governments, including of course its oppressed Muslim minority. However, a sincerely pursued inquiry into the Saturday incidents should bring home to the authorities the real cause of dissatisfaction. Broadly viewing the militant scenario the world over, the curse can only be fought out with a cooperative effort of states, going to the bottom of the causes that spawn such feelings and removing them. The blame game could only help the terrorists.
