Poverty leads to terrorism as the poverty is also the biggest polluter. But are there not French or Christians or White men poor in league with their poorest immigrant Muslim cousins? There are poor people also among the Asian immigrants. Does it mean all of them should take up the arms against the state? Or should it be the privilege of the ‘beurs’ to engage in vandalism? On the other hand, it has become a parrot-fashion for arm-chaired commentators to tell that the growing unemployment and wretched living conditions of the Muslim immigrant population are the reasons behind the ongoing violence in cities of France. They conveniently forget that a sort of discrimination on the basis of caste, creed and colour always exist in the job market not only in France but also everywhere in the world. It should not be encouraged by saner elements in the society. But the fact remains that it exists. Only the forces of globalisation have adversely affected the tightened grips of such forces. In this competitive world, employers prefer the best. The problem is not of unemployment. It is rather a problem of ‘unemployable’. Ostrich approach will be ruinous one.
