I was devastated to know about the loss of innocent lives. However, my heart went out to the several young gunmen.
Can we really blame them? They were probably raised in an environment where killing for justice was considered acceptable. They were brought up on misguided tales of injustices meted out to 'their' people, while children around the world learnt the alphabet, vowels and mathematics. They had to make the choice between poverty and terrorism, while people their age broke sweat over Science, Commerce and Arts.
Punish them, surely. Yet, is it truly their fault?
