A spate of attacks by Islamic fundamentalist groups in recent days have shocked us. These attacks shock us and cause immense sadness. How can anyone not sympathize with the innocent victims and their families? They also fill us with rage. How could such dastardly acts be committed, by whom and most importantly how can such acts be stopped in future? However, it is important to resist the urge to latch on to simplistic answers which a highly successful propaganda machinery and ample bigotry which surrounds us, throw at us. Such answers play into the hands of those who are actually responsible for such a state of affairs.
