It’s a fallacy for the govt to assume that by hanging kasab, it showed its resolve to fight terrorism.

Terrorism is a problem which is social. Children find guns, and kill other children and adults, perhaps fifty of them, at a time. The U. S. cannot do anything about this domestic problem, before it happens. The problem just doesn't have to happen. How can we prevent such incidents? The U. S. is saying, they expect these incidents to happen, when they take such elaborate measures to prevent them, but they expect these happenings from international sources. It appears, domestic incidents of this nature in the U. S., have become very few in number, compared to the past, because of 9/11, and international incidents have been controlled, also. Every act of murder, is seen as an act of terror, it appears, and the phenomenon of children doing what was described above, is an act, which seems to suggest that children want the adults to feel the effect, amplified.

 The trouble with the tough narrative on terror is that it leads into a cul de sac. Either today or tomorrow, both nations have to sit down and find a peaceful solution to their problems.

This is the best article that I have read @OutlookIndia for quite some time.
I had given up on finding any common sense at all over here.
Thank You, Maroof!!

-------------------------------------

Maroof Raza ,as always,is correct in his assessment.But, let him enumerate the steps the GOI should have taken before Kasaab's hanging .

Pakistan  still continues to be in the denial mode. Does  the former President of India,Ms Pratibha Patil,have much to explain to the nation for withholding Kasaab's execution  for so many years during her tenure? The delay only contributed to the cost of  Kasaab's upkeep by spending on his boarding,lodging and ,most of all, the security cover. A sum of Rs 65 crores was  reportedly spent.

 It appears, the Islamic identity was supposed to fight terrorism within. Apparently, the non-Islamic identity is helping the other side win, within Islam, and within the Islamic person. Kasab seems to epitomise this, and he gave up, that which he believed in, and became stridently against, what he did not believe in. It appears, he still believed in what he believed he did, before. I don't think, that religion defines, what he believed in. Apparently, he thought his action would be more valid in India, than in Pakistan. He didn't think, it would make a difference in Pakistan.
