Terrorist attack at IISc: Indian PM responds, and how!

[Prime Minister Manmohan Singh asserted that] "no force on earth could weaken the resolve of Indians to emerge as a great and modern nation."

"It is a symbol of success of Indian science and technology, of our emergence as a knowledge power, that the symbols and temples of our knowledge society are today being targeted by terrorists," he said referring to the killing of Prof. M.C. Puri at the Indian Institute of Science in Bangalore. Speaking at the Indian Science Congress here, Dr. Singh said

This should have those jihadi terrorists quaking in their boots! Bring on more suicide bombers, you jehadis, kill more of our innocent people, we Indians don't care because our beloved PM-ji has said that our resolve cannot be weakened!

Yes, and we can use this terrorist attack to be pat ourselves on the back! Heh, the terrorists are targetting our academic institutions because of our emergence as a knowledge power!

Next, when the film studios, cinema theaters are attacked, our PM-ji will wax eloquent that the jihadis attacked them because our emergence as a phillum power! What, did you not know that Aishwarya Rai was interviewed by Oprah Winfrey? And that Rajinikanth is famous in Japan?

The jehadis will target our country where ever they can - schools, colleges, temples, musical institutions, conferences, trains, planes - because they know that they can get away with it!

Aren't you sick and tired of the Govt. of India, my dear fellow citizen?!
