Following the 26-11 Mumbai attacks in 2008, western analysts speculated on how long it might be before their own capitols came under similar seige. The latest Paris "13-11" attacks have now brought the issue of terrorism into sharp focus once again, with the French govt having declared a state of emergency.
As per certain rushed reactions, when killers shout Allahu-Akbar, then suddenly "terrorism has no religion".
Foreign capitols around the world are expressing solidarity with France in its time of need, by illuminating their own national monuments with the French tricolour. India should do the same.
