Damage, destruction, demolition … I am not talking about physical entities, but mostly cognitive. Can we really take a measure of that? (Image source: Wakil Kohsar/Agence France-Presse — Getty Images / The New York Times)

Believe it or not, even though the subcontinent is nothing new to attacks from religious and non-religious rightwing fundamentalists, as time progresses, there seems to be gradual and steady progression towards the ‘point of no return’.

Again, it is not so difficult to fathom that the inevitable was precisely bound to happen one way or the other, as correctly predicted by the global intelligence (CIA, KGB, Mossad, amongst others).

With reference to Afghanistan, I doubt there is any room for middle path now. You can’t reason with the extremists, can you? If I have to speak my mind, I always expected the mayhem that is currently on display there.

Too many factors influence the phase diagram of extremism, and adding local flavours to it, the equation can’t be approached with a rational mindset, not anymore.

The POTUS has made a decision, which is okay. He is standing by it, which is also fine. But one thing he must note, history will not judge him solely by his decision on the matter, but what implications it facilitated. At the moment, it is anything but rosy. Hopefully, times and circumstances will transform. Or will they? (Image source: BBC / Getty Images)
