Syed Ali Mujtaba, Chennai based journalist writes in Mujtaba's Musings:
There is no stopping to the business of terrorism brandishing Muslims as terrorist. Now this idea has caught the imagination of those who conceptualize games for the children.
The latest news comes from GVK-1 Shopping Mall in Hyderabad, Deccan where a franchise of an US company named "FUN ZONE" has put up a shooting game stall for children called "Killing a Terrorist."
The inquisitive kids are given a gun and asked to shoot two statues put up in the stall resembling Muslim characters. There dress naturally identifies them as Muslims. One of the statutes wore turban and a long beard and other had skull cap, with clean mustaches and long beard.
... .... ....
It seems that global agenda to fight terrorism is drifting apart and the business of terrorism is busy making hay while sun shines. The buzz word is to create terrorist first and then launch a campaign to lead fight against terrorism! It seems this business is turning out to be billions of dolor industry, and there are could be many stake holders in building this industry.
It´s a vicious circle, where people have lost the beginning of the plot of terrorism and there is no end to it in sight. Each looking at the symptoms of it and none interested in curing the disease. This makes one ponder whether "Killing a Terrorist" may solve the issue of terrorism from the face of the earth?
I think there is no ready made answer to this scourge facing the humanity. The irony is no one is trying to find out answers to it and creating a space where peace and harmony can gain precedence over, conflict and barbarism.

The propaganda mill is busy leading the campaign that "all Muslims are not terrorists but all terrorists are Muslims," no matter how much the voices of sanity delivers the punch line; ´My name is Khan and I am not a terrorist´!
