Good going, TOI.
Right next to this edit is the news item of Pak-based LeT operative Mohammed Arif alias Ashfaq receiving the death penalty in the Red Fort attack case. Two of his Indian accomplices, Nazir Ahmed Qasid and his son Farooq Ahmed Qasid were awarded life for waging war against the State. This case was the ostensible precipitation behind Saturday’s blasts.
It is a sad comment on our times that I am writing such a post today. Our world is rampaged by tragedy and grief. Sadness peeks at us from every nook and corner. Hopefully tonight’s rituals will introduce a semblance of normalcy in the dreariness that marks these days. Happy Diwali!
