The Bangalore bomb blast has yet again proved that terrorists can and do strike at will. The injured, as always, are the innocent and unsuspecting people. While condemnation of the dastardly act has come in from all quarters, political parties have been quick to assess the advantages and disadvantages to their election prospects.

It is hoped that politicians will allow the police to do their job without interference and unsolicited advice. As members of a society that wishes to live in peace and tranquillity, we should cooperate with the security and intelligence agencies by remaining calm.

The blast that took place near the BJP office has shattered the confidence of the people of the city. Congress leader Shakeel Ahmad’s reaction that the blast will help the BJP in the election is shocking.
