New Delhi: Former Union Minister Shashi
Tharoor Thursday asked all Indians to put up a united fight against terrorism and ensure that the perpetrators of Delhi High Court blast are brought to justice.

"I genuinely believe that all Indians must be united
against terrorism... Let us not start dividing ourselves as to
who is good and who is bad in fighting terrorism," Tharoor
told PTI on the sidelines of a function at Indira Gandhi
National Centre for the Arts here.

Apparently referring to the BJP which has accused the
government of being soft on terror, Tharoor said, "This is not
a political issue that one party is soft and the other is not.

We can`t protect every place in this country but we can, I
believe, take very effective steps against those who have
committed this heinous crime and teach them a lesson."
Noting that just condemning these acts of terrorism
is not enough, Tharoor said the government has to investigate
and bring the perpetrators to justice and show to the world
that they cannot get away after every attack.
