My hometown experienced yet another act of terror today. Explosions in two crowded areas killed more than 30 people. One occurred at an amusement park frequently visited by families in the evenings. The other occurred at a very popular eating joint in the heart of the city's shopping district. My heart goes out to the victims of these violent acts. I hope the system brings those responsible to justice quickly.
I have visited the eating joint called, Gokul chat bandar so many times when I lived in hyderabad, that I can't help but shiver at the thought of a bomb going off at that joint. Who could commit such indespicable acts? There is bound to be a lot of finger pointing, but I hope people keep their sense and do not resort to acts of hate inspired by communal mistrust. Hyderabad has had its share of communal riots in the past, and I am proud that in the last decade or so tensions have subsided quite a bit and religious tensions do not dominate the political landscape anymore. I am sure, that the city will get over the latest violence in unity and prove to the world that we do live in peace.
