Letter Published in Gulf News UAE ON 30May 17,Praying for the victims
The brutal attack that killed 22 innocent people and left many others injured was condemned by one and all (‘Troops deploy as Britain goes on top terror alert’, Gulf News, May 25). The attackers have created a sense of panic and fear among people, which is unacceptable. Whoever is responsible for this motive and action must be brought to justice.
The casualty numbers are the highest over the previous attack a decade ago in the UK. It’s time for the entire globe to join together and eradicate this menace. No one anticipated their fate while watching the Ariana Grande concert. I pray for the victims and a speedy recovery for the injured.

Letter Published in Gulf News UAE on 25 May 17,A visit for peace
After assuming office, Trump began his first tour in the Middle East, to express his desire for better bilateral ties, not only in trade, but also in the eradication of terrorism (‘Trump wins warm welcome in Saudi Arabia’, Gulf News, May 21). His visit should bring understanding, peace and, above all, a strategy to end the long fight of the Syrian people. He should also demonstrate to the people of Middle East that he is a peace-loving person. I hope this visit will bring good ties between the US and Middle East.

Letter Published in Gulf News UAE on 24May 17,Hacking for money or terror?
The authors have correctly analysed the recent hacking phenomenon that affected many countries around the world, particularly UK hospitals, which were thought to be targeted (‘Massive cyber attack shocks world’, Gulf News, May 14). It is evident that the hackers were blackmailing for ransom money. Apart from the 74 countries affected, the worst hit was Russia. However, the motive of whether this hacking was for money or terror is yet to known. With these attacks, all countries should join hands and establish safety measures to prevent hackers from gaining access in the future.

This tragic incident happened in the Indian capital city of New Delhi in a school close to a depot where a gas container leaked, it was kept for industrial use (‘India gas tanker leak sends 200 students to hospital’, Gulf News, May 7). The investigation is on and the people who are responsible for this negligence should be punished. Luckily, there weren’t any causalities, except for throat and eyes irritations. The government should not issue licences for these types of establishments near school or residential areas. I pray for the speedy recovery of the students.

Letter Published in Gulf News UAE on 7 May 17,Curtail insurgents
In recent days, bomb blasts are becoming more visible, with the unmitigated killing of innocent civilians, and this time, police officers were killed, too (‘Roadside bomb kills three near Baghdad’, Gulf News, May 1). Despite the reduction in violence, this is happening mainly due to insurgents. Iraqi forces should implement a new strategy to curtail these insurgents and protect the people. Will the Iraqi forces adopt a new strategy?

In a mass marriage ceremony, the Indian state minister of Madhya Pradesh gifted brides with bats to protect themselves from their husbands in case if they are alcoholics (‘Minister gifts bats to brides to beat husbands if they turn alcoholic’, Gulf News, May 1). This may look like a funny incident, but it is to safeguard themselves. If the government can implement a ban on alcohol, which is already the case in a few states, that will be better. However, this gift is a new concept.

Letter Published in Gulf News UAE on 3 May 17  Benefitting the wrong people  The opinion piece on what US President Donald Trump is doing for Americans by Nicholas Kristof was meaningful and thought provoking (‘This isn’t tax policy, it’s a Trump-led heist’, Gulf News, April 28). Kristof has elaborately analysed the way Trump’s administration has failed his voters for the promises made by him and the new tax policy is only the Republican way to cover it up. This tax policy is not clear on how it is going to be implemented. This new policy, if at all implemented, will be taking care of corporations, like the ones owned by Trump. Will this tax policy be welcomed by the American people? We will have to wait and see.From Mr K. Ragavan Bengaluru, India
