Bloodbath in Cairo

The present situation in Egypt is not just challenging but ominous. Cairo’s landmark sit-in sites have been reduced to rubble. But what’s even more disturbing is the fact that there seems to be no signs of a let up in the violence as Mursi supporters stick to their guns and the Egypt military to theirs.

There seems to be no serious steps being taken by either side to restore peace even as the death toll mounts and the strange silence on the part of the United Nations, United States and other responsible European countries is even more worrisome.

The mass killings of civilians have clearly proven the influence of anti-social elements and the absence of a responsible administration.The continuing unrest might escalate further, as the country continues to face security threats from within, especially in the densely populated cities.

It’s high time the world took a serious initiative to bring peace in Egypt. At the same time, let’s hope that whatever happened in Cairo is never be repeated.
