Bangalore, Sep 15 (UNI) Infosys Chairman N R Narayana Murthy today felt that the country needs to enhance vigilance in the wake of serial blasts in major cities to make sure that innocent lives was not lost.
Speaking to reporters on the sidelines of a function to announce the winner of the first Infosys Prize for Mathematics here, he said it was sad that innocent lives were lost in the Delhi blasts.
"I think in this country we all have to look at ourselves first as Indians and (then to which) religion we belong. After the recent happenings I am sure that we will shortly see improvements in the vigilance," he said.
Mr Murthy said that the country had witnessed enough incidents of terror attacks and there was no doubt that the government was seized of the matter and give internal security the top priority.
When asked about involvement of IT professionals in the 'terror war' he said he had no data on that. "I do not want to comment on any issue on which I do not have any data," he said.
On whether he had any suggestion to make to the government in the wake of recent blasts, Mr Murthy said there were enough smart people in the central government. "Now it (Delhi blast) has taken place, (terrorism) has become a front burner problem. I have no doubts that they will put their best brains together and come out with a good solution," he said.
Mr Murthy said that the question was whether the people were more insecure now than before. "We live in a different world which is more complex, more polarised. We live in a world where there is plurality of opinion and this is bound to result in some discomfort.
We will witness some frustration, anger and sad, some loss to individuals," he said.
Mr Murthy felt that most important thing now was to create an environment where any issue can be discussed in a civilised manner peacefully and in a manner people don't resort to violence. "Here lies the ultimate solution," he added.
