Subramaniam Swamy’s article on countering Terrorism.

          Subramaniam Swamy has it in him to call a spade a spade . This article on DNA speaks volumes about his no-nonsense attitude.Here he was speaking about countering the Islamic terrorism in India.It is for this article that some students in Oxford are raising a hue and cry.

           I say all Muslims are not terrorists, I do know a good number of Muslims who have a liberal way of life . However, the Jihadi fanatics are an all time threat to this planet. I personally believe that in this article Swamy is not against any particular community or religion. He simply is against terrorism.

Here is an excerpt from the article .

“According to bleeding heart liberals, terrorists are born or bred because of illiteracy, poverty, oppression, and discrimination. They argue that instead of eliminating them, the root cause of these four disabilities in society should be removed. This is rubbish. Osama bin laden was a billionaire. In the failed Times Square episode, failed terrorist Shahzad was from a highly placed family in Pakistan and had an MBA from a reputed US university.

It is also a ridiculous idea that terrorists cannot be deterred because they are irrational and willing to die. Terrorist masterminds have political goals and a method in their madness. An effective strategy to deter terrorism is to defeat those political goals and to rubbish them by counter-terrorist action.”


Here is the complete article.
