Rag tag bunch of desperadoes : Grenade at Mission School
- The Sangai Express Editorial :: April 24 2019 -



Rag tag bunch of desperadoes.

Not the first time that a Catholic school has come under assault and there are elements out there who will make sure that this does not stop.

This is what is worrying and unacceptable.

Equally worrying too is the lack of any tangible response or reaction from the numerous civil society organisations which have all made a name for themselves by taking up issues which concern the people.

This is where it becomes important for all to ring out the message that selective protests will no longer hold water.

The issue here is a place of learning, a school which has produced some of the most brilliant students the place has seen and if such an institution which is there to educate the youngsters and mould them to become responsible citizens of the land can be subjected to such threats then it shows that there are some elements who can go to any extent to deliver their point.

This is what is unacceptable. At the moment, no one knows who or which group is behind the act of planting or placing the bomb at the entrance gate of the school but this is besides the point.

Respecting the sanctity of a place of learning is a lesson which no one should forget.

And in keeping silent over the incident, the society as a whole may just be ringing out the message that such an act is tolerable.

Such a mindset should have no place in this age when everything is about competition and only the best can hope to proceed through life.

A case has been registered and here is hoping that the law enforcers of the land take the case to its logical conclusion and take up fitting action.

Okay the bomb did not explode, but what if it had exploded in all its might ?

What about the mental trauma it would have caused amongst the young students of the school ?

It is also possible that other Mission schools must be under the same threat and this is where the Government will need to step in and see that such an ugly incident is not repeated at the other schools.

What is alarming is the point that there seems to be a pattern behind the threats to Mission schools and not a year passes by without some strictures or directives issued to these schools by some self appointed guardians of the land.

Is it just some monetary demands or are there any more agenda behind the threats and bombs planted at these schools ?

Little Flower School is the institution at the centre of the issue now and earlier it was some other schools such as Catholic School at Canchipur.

And many other cases, excluding something as overt as planting a bomb, may have gone unreported.

That this should happen when student organisations have raised the call to make education a free zone is what is all that more unacceptable.
