Guwahati: In an apparent reaction to the recent grenade blast in Guwahati that left 12 injured, popular singer from Assam Zubeen Garg has written an ‘open letter’ addressed to ULFA, the proscribed insurgent group that claimed responsibility for the May 15 attack.
In the letter, Garg said “killing innocent people will not result in anything fruitful”. “Fear cannot build a nation. Labour can. Hard work can,” wrote the Ya Ali singer.
The 47-year-old musician further wrote: “Teach our kids how to cultivate. Teach them how to grow seeds out of nothing. Teach them how to shape their dreams. If you want to build something, build Majuli! If you want to destroy something, destroy the threats roaming over Kaziranga!”
Taking a stand against terrorism, Garg said: “I have fought against terrorism. Terrorism can never give a meaning to your rights. Education can. Development can. Progress can.”
Ending his letter on an emotional note, he wrote: “Let our kids grow in peace, let us live. There is no justice after death.”
