Media is not changing; neither BJP, it is twisting the news and continues to manipulate facts. Police is doing its job and the police commissioner Anurag Sharma is careful enough and avoiding to jump to conclusions over who is involved in to the blast. We have to appreciate the way Anurag Sharma is conducting himself rightly though under pressure.

I will not be telling the whole truth if I blame only the media, I think the main opposition is no different. Its leaders, both in the state of AP and at the center are indulging into such irresponsible rhetoric. It was Sushma Swaraj who, I do not know how, may be when she was out of words or content to add value to her speech in parliament, jumped to outrageous allegations and suspected of possible link to link to hate speech of MIM MLA Akberuddin. Did you ever hear any such allegation in the past from leader of opposition in the parliament?

Media jumping restlessly to say “Breakthrough in blast probe; one taken into custody. Lashkar-e-Toiba claims responsibility for explosions, warns of more attacks” when the police is not clear about the authenticity of the letter and its veracity.

BJP Andhra Pradesh unit President G Kishan Reddy received a letter purportedly written by the LeT threatening to attack Begum Bazaar, a major business centre. The LeT also claimed responsibility for Thursday’s attack.

Kishan Reddy said the letter written in English and Urdu was handed over to the Abids Police Station. The police said they were examining the letter to ascertain its veracity and tracing its origin. There is not much information on who handed over the letter to the Police at Abids Police Station; more light would help in linking or understanding the authenticity of the letter. Is it a fake letter or the real link can be established between the LeT and the letter. One would wonder why Kshan Reddy of BJP is informed. Why not the police Commissioner or the Home Minister of India Sushil Kumar Shinde.

Does this not raise questions that need to be investigated and answers found how BJP is coming into the loop? And the confidence with which former Deputy Prime Minister in the NDA regime L K Advani informed the media that he feels there is a hand of Pakistan based terror group in to Hyderabad blast. Mr. Advani speaking to Indian Express on 23rd of February, the blast occurred on 21st evening at 7 pm. at Dilsukhnagar, said, “The neighboring country has taken recourse to terrorism to trouble India."


“There is no doubt that there is the hand of the neighboring country in Hyderabad blasts" he added.

On his visit to the Hyderabad blast site, the newly placed President of BJP, as reported in Siasat a Urdu Daily from Hyderabad on its web page, said, “All these terrorist activities are Pakistan-sponsored and ISI-sponsored. In such a scenario, there is no need to continue Confidence Building measures (CBM) with Pakistan. I want to suggest to the government that for time being the CBM process should be suspended."

Earlier, even the former President of BJP Venkaiyah Naidu said in the parliament, “The recent terror attack in Hyderabad was a reminder to us that political parties must unite and demonstrate their strong resolve to fight terrorism."


“We should refrain from giving any colour to terror. Our enemy is conspiring to weaken India, subvert system and use religion as a tool to divide and instigate the people", he told reporters.

He too had linked the terror attack without any concrete evidence in hours of blast, saying the blast is a fallout of Afzal Gurus’ hanging. And also hinting at the involvement of LeT.


He spoke about local involvement into the blast which makes it clear he on one hand says terror does not have color and it should not be linked to any one section but he himself is critical of Hyderabad calling it terror bed.

My question is, what is BJP doing? Its leaders in the center and the state have shown similar restlessness as is shown by the Indian media which is under fire from the Chief Justice of India for its manner of reporting on recent blast.

Their seems to be similarities and a common base line adopted by Media and BJP leaders. The police and NIA have not shown any eagerness to label any one without concrete proof. The police even for five days past blast is clueless and is desperate and helpless to note even the CCTV footing are not doing any help as they are of sub standard and inconclusive to be used as clear evidence against any one person or group.

Under such circumstances, a letter comes addressed to Kishan Reddy, BJP MLA and President of Sate BJP unit from the most dreaded terror group, which is responsible for several major attacks in both Pakistan and India. LeT’s network, takes note of this BJP MLA, of all the people in Govt and Intelligence and Social Media and Emails it sends a personal letter to Kishan Reddy. How many can take this at its face value? I smell not everything can be right.

What is wrong if an inquiry is initiated to find out was there any sharing of strategy between L K Advani, Venkaiyah Naidu and Kishan Reddy and the person or medium with which the Police Station received a letter for Kishan Reddy?


How come they were so definite about the LeT? If what they say is right, it is a great reveal and needs a bigger probe? And if what they say is not substantiated, then they are out and out on a mission of demoralize and defame a particular section of the society. Explanation should be called for from them. Is BJP politicizing the blast for political gains, apparently looks it is.

One should also look into all this in one another perspective too which no one in the media and in the ruling party or intelligence agencies are speaking about. We are fresh from the allegation of Home Minister himself over the involvement of BJP and RSS in breading terror in their camps that in turn is weakening the national security and threatening to bread terror in the country. No one, at least for the sake of mentioning is speaking about this even if to take some points and do some politics. What should we make out of this? Just give clean chit to the breading camps in India, evidences to them is with the HM and our intelligence. As reported by the UPA leaders and the ministry.

Why Congress is silent and why only one direction when it comes to countering terror when we have two and more directions to it. Is politics and its losses and gain not one another direction? Don’t we see politics playing around Dislukhnagar Blast?

Guilty should be identified and punished, but failure to identify and the frustration followed by it cannot be allowed to spill on soft target Muslims youth. The needle of doubt cannot be biased. It has to work rightly and explore all possibilities and angles. Our mood of political parties like BJP, unfortunately even the police is showing signs of restlessness and is tending to look in a closed shell, our system and our agencies should work in a 360 degree domain and not rule out any linkage to terror. And no innocent be subjected to any harassment ever.
