Corruption is at its worst form in our country. Its presence is felt from panshop to parliament. A few months back we have seen our MPs are bought for voting in favour of the ruling party. The situation in our country is that any body can be bribed and bought by those who are having money and power. It is no wonder that the terrorists can also get any favour from our beaurocrats if they are given money. Thus the corruption in India is playing its very important role in breeding terrorism.

I have been saying this to my friends since the Mumbai attacks. It is easy to carry out terrorist attacks of this impunity only because identity documents can be faked, duplicate documents can be created, so called law-keepers like Coast Guard, Port officials etc can be bribed, even Defence secrets are not safe from being leaked out if the right price is paid. As it corruption that ensures that bullet proof vests allow bullets to go through, budgetary allocations for improvising weapons go in getting luxury cars, etc. If there was no corruption, I can guarantee that such attacks cannot be successfully executed. Corruption & Greed is the biggest bane of this country. But please dont be in a hurry to look at others. We are also as corrupt as anyone. Dont we bribe to get our way through. Dont we bribe to deny justice to the poor and the needy. Dont we bribe to get undue gain. As a country we are the most corrupt. Shame on us. Even the so called 'educated' 'intellectuals' are easily corrup ...more

No doubt. In India any body ,terrorist or non- terrorist ,can get through any no. of security measures or other stringent laws or measures if they have got money to bribe the babus.

If you talk of naxalites and maoists it is directly because of corruption. if you think of cross border terrorism it facilitates the corruption. for example the mumbai blasts of 1993 was the direct result of corruption as the explosives were allowed to be landed and taken away though the persons allowing it might not have known what it was meant for.
