One Antulay was once well-known for his shenanigans with cement in the late 1970s. I can't see why he was ever rehabilitated after that disgrace, but that's the way with politics, it seems.
Anyway, the same Antulay said two things today.
In the first, I believe he is entirely wrong. Hemant Karkare was killed by the terrorists who attacked Bombay three weeks ago. It's a great tragedy, especially given his reputation and his diligent pursuit of the Malegaon investigation, but I don't believe there's anything more to it, as Antulay wants to suggest.
In the second, I believe Antulay is entirely right. Communal violence is terrorism no less than the attack on Bombay three weeks ago, no less than the various bomb blasts we've been through. Its perpetrators and instigators deserve to be seen that way and punished that way.
