Attentats à New- Delhi.

Attentats à New- Delhi.

Décidément, les médias français (et particulièrement la télé et la radio) ne s'intéressent pas à l'Inde.

Je viens d'apprendre en surfant un peu que 5 bombes ont explosé samedi soir à Delhi. Placées dans trois lieux à la symbolique forte, c-a-d, faisant partie de la vie quotidienne des habitants de Delhi ( Connaugh Place et Greater Kailash sont deux zones commerciales, Karol Bagh est un lieu de transfert, un carrefour de routes (bus etc) avant l'arrivée au centre de Delhi), elles ont tué une vingtaine de personnes et en ont blessé une centaine d'autres.

Ces attentats ont été revendiqués par les Moudjahidins indiens, un groupe encore mal connu, qui semble recruter parmi les troupes du Mouvement islamique des étudiants d'Inde (SIMI), interdit par le gouvernement de New Delhi. L'Inde vient de vivre sa quatrième vague d'attentats depuis mai dernier.

Conséquence, ce matin, le Times of India débutait ainsi son édito: "Nous sommes en guerre":

"We are at war. The string of blasts in Delhi on Saturday, which killed 30 people and injured over 90, is the fourth attack by terrorists on a major Indian city in the span of four months. The attacks began with Jaipur on May 13, followed by Bangalore and Ahmedabad in consecutive days in July.

The method of operation has been similar in most of these attacks, with markets being targeted at a time when they are likely to be crowded. And like the blasts in Ahmedabad and Bangalore, a group called Indian Mujahideen has sent out an e-mail warning and claimed responsibility.

If we leave out countries like Iraq, Pakistan and Afghanistan, which are at the epicentre of the war on terror, India has suffered the most at the hands of terrorists in the past few years.

When a country is at war, there cannot be any half-measures to hit back and contain the enemy. This is also not the time to blame the government in power and point fingers. The two main political parties in India, the Congress and BJP, must be mature enough to realise that at this time the nation must be united. It is imperative, therefore, that they stop making political capital out of a national crisis; instead, they would do well to put their heads together to figure out a counter-strategy for which consensus will be essential.

While it is extremely difficult to prevent low-intensity bombs — which can be ferried in a car or two-wheeler — from being detonated in open, crowded markets, every possible measure must be taken to gather and act on intelligence on suspected terrorists.

At this moment of crisis, some of the liberties that we take for granted might have to be curbed to ensure that terrorists, who follow no norms and rules, are effectively restrained. Such measures must be debated — if needed, in a special session of Parliament — by the major political parties and implemented as quickly as possible. Other democracies, such as the US and UK, have done so with a fair degree of success. Following the 9/11 attack in New York and the 7/7 London blasts, the US and UK have so far managed to prevent significant terror attacks. Terrorist plans to blow up planes flying out of Heathrow airport in London were foiled; the impact of the suicide bombers' attack on Glasgow airport in 2007 was minimised.

Like in the earlier blasts, Delhi wasn't cowed down by the terror attacks. Even as news of the blasts spread on Saturday, the city went about its work as usual. This is a stinging rejoinder to those who seek to spread fear. But we must ensure that this resilience does not end up making us tolerant towards terrorists or the havoc they wreak"

Un débat apparait depuis samedi en Inde. Doit-on renforcer la lutte contre le terrorisme? (sachant que tout n'est pas contrôlable et d'ailleurs, j'ai trouvé que l'armée était beaucoup plus présentes dans les rues de Delhi qu'en Europe) ou constater que cette politique contre le terrorisme est un immense échec, comme le signale le hindu?( après tout, une bombe a été placée près de la Gate of India- l'arc de triomphe indienne, un des endroits les plus surveillés en Inde) . L'Inde est-elle en proie de devenir une nouvelle Israël?
