"You Strike and We will Strike back"
The message of ‘21/2 Hyderabad serial terror attack’:
By Feroze Mithiborwala
The strategic & political target of the terror attack, is the historic 2-day Strike of the Working classes, where more than 12 crore or 120 million workers both from the organized & unorganized sectors participated & brought India to a halt. This working class strike surmounted all calculations due to the scale at which the enraged working classes participated. This strike has shaken up the corporate-political elite & that is why they have struck back with a serial terror attack, where now more than 15 citizens have died & 50 grievously injured. The terror attack was orchestrated in Dilsukh Nagar, where there is a busy market & many cinema halls.
If the working class unrest takes the proportions which we witness in many nations across the world such as Greece & Spain, the ruling elite will witness a massive crisis, due to the growing burdens of price-rise, decreasing wages, increasing scams, spiraling inflation, the growing insecurity of the peasantry, workers & laboring classes, as well as the ever-widening rich-poor divide.
The sheer scale of the two-day strike has taken the entire country by surprise, as the Left-Working class forces were supposed to have lost ground against the neo-liberal corporate juggernaut. Even cities & towns in the Northern belts, where the working class movements have been historically weak, have witnessed massive marches & even militant struggles. Towns such as Noida & Gurgaon that adjoin New Delhi, have witnessed the most militant & popular mobilization. The nervous & cold-blooded ruling corporate elite had to hit back & they have promptly, without wasting a moment, as they can see trouble brewing in the distance.
All it requires is for the black-ops teams to place the bombs in various parts of the city & quietly walk away & then sit back & watch the mayhem & terror on the TV screens, even whilst TV anchors call upon the very same ‘leaders’, who know exactly what is going on, who address us calling for unity & calm, whilst chuckling to themselves within & mocking at a frightened & gullible population.
The other reasons for the terror attack also need to be analysed. The false-flag terror cell, again the handiwork of the Deep-State & the Black-ops cells that function within every Government & security apparatus.
Then are the other factors that needed to be swept below the carpet of blood. There was a dire need to change the contours of the debate away from the BJP-RSS terror network & the statement that was made by the Home Minister Sushil Kumar Shinde. This terror attack will lessen the heat on the RSS-BJP brigade. Also it was in the background of the Shinde remark on RSS terror, that the Government went ahead & murdered Afzal Guru. This card was aimed at the General Elections of 2014, where the Congress is aiming at the conservative Hindu vote, whilst knowing that the liberal secular Hindu vote is safely in the bag, whilst the Minorities have nowhere to go, with Modi's dark shadow loomimng large. Yes, it was not a hanging, it was sheer murder & more & more voices across the country were being raised. Thus now this terror attack in Hyderabad will deal with all these issues.
And Hyderabad has been marked out as the target for the fact that since the last few months, it is this city that has emerged as the most communally sensitive due to the Charminar-Temple dispute & the infamous Akbaruddin Owaisi statement. Thus it will be easy to portray the handiwork of ‘Sleeper Cells’ of disgruntled Muslim youth, who will begin to be picked up from the lanes of this city. Most of the unfortunate victims will be police informers & petty criminals who will be entrapped into owning up for this terror attack. Also the National Investigation Agency has stated that the Mecca Masjid terror attack was the handiwork of RSS related terror cells such as the Abhinav Bharat & the Sanatan Sanstha, even whilst the falsely accussed Mulsim youth have been found to be innocent & thus too Hyderabad has been targeted.
On our part, we have to continue to persevere with analysing & exposing the politics of terror, which has now become a perverse gory art-form in the hands of the ruling elite. The politics of communal riots & terror are part of state-craft & a strategy used to control & manipulate entire populations. The agenda is to create a perpetual state of fear & a climate of chaos & confusion, thus ensuring that the exploitation & oppression carry on with the least resistance of the masses, who will remain divided along communal fault-lines. But the people will see through these devious designs, though there is a lot of work to be done, a path strewn with struggle.
