The inhuman atrocity of the 9-11 attacks have caused the biggest paradigm shift of this age,in positive as well as negative ways…
The ‘war on terror’ snowballed after this,once the US and UK were compelled to get their feet really wet. This has probably reduced the number and extent of such future attacks. But, I see this war going towards an inconclusive end.
The negative aspect is the cynicism, which has increased beyond any permissible limit.The way Asians,especially the Muslims are perceived throughout the world has become hostile. This hostility is increasing the bitterness in the wounded hearts of the people of these communities.
9-11,is a black day which will keep us reminding of the brutality of the human race.Let it also not mark this as -the day when the world turned its back to a deeply hurt and humiliated section of itself…..
Terrorism cannot be defeated by hurting ourselves….We need to have a broader perspective and endorse this paradigm….
