While writing this, German city Munich is under siege. A deadly shootout has seen multiple deaths and it is not over yet.
And it has come within 10 days of the truck attack in Nice in France that claimed 84 lives and injured over 300. No bullet was fired yet a self-radicalized ISIS sympathizer killed so many – because he was blinded by an idea.
And it has come within three weeks of the July 1 Dhaka terror strike that left 22 dead.
And it has come almost within three weeks of the Istanbul terror attack on June 28 that killed 45.
And it has come within two weeks of the bloodiest Ramadan ever – the month of peace that terrorists chose to shatter the world piece.
And these are just the few from the latest round of the terror onslaught. Since the advent of the ISIS, the world has seen a renewed form of terrorism that is breaking every mould to chose its methods and is inflicting its damage – in countries as far as Brazil. Yesterday only a news report came that Brazil busted a terror module that was working to target the Rio Olympics that is beginning on August 5.
There have been multiple terror attacks in Asia, Europe, Africa (and America).
On average, some 30000 people are killed every year in terror strikes.
And what lies in base of this madness – is the sheer misuse of a term that has conceptualized and defined (and refined) every breed of politics the world over – ever since we started organizing in different units – and ever since we started realizing that we has an identity – that kept us apart from others.
Yes, terrorism is nothing but another political tool that draw its existence from the Identity Politics.
