Aamir Khan turns writer for BBC website, describes Mumbai blasts as act of ‘cowardice’

In an exclusive piece authored for the BBC News website (Click here to read: http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/south_asia/5175824.stm), actor Aamir Khan has condemned the recent Mumbai serial blasts, hitting out at the people behind what he describes as a ‘horrifying’ act.

“This horrifying act shows the extreme level of cowardice that makes people place bombs in trains and kill totally unaware people. What can be more cowardly than something like this, which smacks of stabbing someone who is totally innocent? What was the point of killing ordinary people?” asks Khan in his piece.

“The way people went out of their way to help is just like the generous Mumbaiite… I am glad that we have bounced back and are back at work – it just shows these people that we will not be cowed down by such stealthy, cowardly actions. I think the best we can do is stick together and be alert,” he adds.

Expressing his confidence in the police and the authorities, Khans writes, “The police are doing a good job, they are very capable. If it seems otherwise, if people feel impatient, we must remind ourselves that the police force and the Army are used to dealing with crime on a daily basis and they know what is the best step to take in such a situation.”

“We must follow the leaders at this time. And trust them. They require our co-operation at this time,” he adds.

Khan, who was in Satara at the time of the blasts, expresses his shock and writes that he was worried about the safety of commuters in Mumbai, including his own staff, who use the local train network.
