NEW DELHI: The terror attacks in Norway have made megastar Amitabh Bachchan wonder if science and technology can come up with a device that can remove hatred and violence from the world.
"Reading seeing and hearing all the vivid descriptions of the carnage in Oslo, Norway has been such a disturbing and unbelievable moment. The madness of mankind in such state shows the vulnerability of life itself for us all," Big B posted on his blog Bigb.bigadda.com.
"We live in times of trial and uncertainty, on hope and God's will. The entire human community seems polluted with corrupt thought. What will it require to defuse that ? What would it need to be closer to sanity - those that propose saner elements often end up as victims, remembered, flowered and monumented in stone if of important caliber," he added.
Now the 68-year-old is wishing that science had some answers to curb hatred.
"Were there a process within science to remove hatred and violent thought from the nature of the human, the world would be an enviable paradise. Medicine and medical scientists work tirelessly to remove disease from the future. So many examples of these have been enumerated so successfully," Big B posted.
"Can you please Mr Scientist remove the above as well .. save us from this every day devastation, this unbearable blow to our inner systems. We are all damaged, hurt and in deep pain. Deliver us oh lord from this unwanted occurrence. We have been tried and tested beyond all … now protect and save us," he added.
The attack carried by a right wing Christian Friday massacred 84 people on an island in Norway, soon after carrying out a deadly bombing in Oslo that killed seven people.
