Editor's Comments

Greetings in most precious name of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ.
I hope this mail will find you in best of health and happiness.
 
We praise God for His faithfulness. We all are fine here in Varanasi. The terrorists planned a serial bomb blast but God saved people from such incident to take place. 3 different places police found bombs which were later difused.The situation in the city is not good but God saved many people. It was God's miracle on 7th March I was suppose to leave for Bihar exactly the same time when this incident took place but because of some problems I left the train. Otherwise I would have seen all that.
The first blast took place inside famous Sankatmochan temple adjacent to Kashi Vishwanath temple when it was teeming with devotees at the evening ‘aarti’ time, killing four persons on the spot.
Minutes later at 6:25 p.m., another blast took place at the holding area of platform number one of the Varanasi Cantonment railway station when Delhi-bound Shivaganga Express was stationary.Two bomb blasts in quick succession rocked Sankatmochan temple and the Cantonment railway station in Varanasi on Tuesday evening killing at least 45 persons and injuring over 150, some of them seriously injured. {Taken from news paper}
 
The Government is hiding the real statistics in order to prevent communal rights. More than 300 people died and about 500 people got injured.
 
Please pray that political, religious and fanatic groups like BJP, RSS, bajrang dal and shivsena may not create further problems. {Since Varanasi is considered to be most holy city for hindus} Yesterday the city was closed by these groups. Markets wore a deserted look as shops and other business establishments throughout the city remained closed in protest against the blasts that claimed more than 300 lives and injured about 500 others.
 
Vehicular traffic in the city was thin with people not venturing out on the roads apprehending law and order problems. Schools, colleges and other educational institutions were closed following an order from the district administration in view of the bandh.
1. Please pray for the families who have lost their loved ones.
2. Please pray for those who are injured and are in hospital.
3. Please pray that situation should get back to normal.
Rest is fine. Looking forward to hear from You.
Yours in Him.
