Quick Edit | A chain of violence

The sequence of events that began with the violence in Assam has now touched different parts of the country.

It is time governments —Union and states—end this chain. It is not hard to figure how rumours are spreading—especially those propagated via mobile devices. The miscreants can be caught without much trouble. As to troublemakers “on the spot" so to speak, they should be handed punishment swiftly.

This is not a trivial matter: citizens hailing from north-eastern states feel marginalized socially. If on top of that they are threatened with violence or are subjected to it, the situation is intolerable. For a change, the government should get its act together, fast.
