A Sri Lanka Terror Motive - a Violent Reality of Hate and Vengeance
In the aftermath of the March 15, 2019, massacre of 50 innocent worshipers at prayer at mosques by Australian white supremacist, Brenton Harrison Tarrant, in Christchurch, New Zealand, and on hearing reports of that terrorist's motive for the slayings as being to unleash fear upon nonwhites, I warned of the stark possibility of reciprocal violence.
Writing in this Blog @www.communityaffairsconsultants.com , on Sunday, March 17, 2019, under the title: The Reciprocal of Right Wing Violence - a Factor not to be Awaken - for peace Sake, I opined: "For the love of peace and stability, I hereby caution and warn those who hope, advocate, sanction and execute violence against the people of the inconceivable, unwanted and heart stopping reciprocal of right wing violence."
On Easter Sunday, April 21, 2019, the inconceivable, unwanted and heart stopping terror of mass murder victimized 321 innocents and injured another 500 in and around Colombo, Sri Lanka. Suicide terrorists bombers of whom the Islamic State (IS) has claimed as members, killed worshipers at three Christian churches and three hotels in the Asian nation on one of the Holiest days of the Christian faith.
Earlier today, the BBC-News and the AP reported that Sri Lankan defense minister, Ruwan Wijewardene, in reacting to the tragedy that befolded his country, admitted: "preliminary investigations" have indicated that the terror attacks were "carried out in retaliation" for the attacks upon the Muslim mosques in New Zealand.
However, it should be emphasized that hatred, vengeance and violence are all counter to the progressive spirit and continuity of the human species. Violence provoking greater violence is a recipe to the rapid decline of humanity.
Therefore, for sake of peace and stability, right wing agitations and acts of terror as well as any fallible ideologies advocating violent vengeance must all be condemned and ended forthwith.
