Mumbai, July 11: "Please don't show dead bodies on television," said Vikram Sood, former chief of Research and Analysis Wing while talking to "TV channels should stop showing dead bodies because it generates fear."

The emotion of fear should not be promoted in times of crisis, he added.

"When 9/11 happened American TV viewers were not shown blood and death.

"Children too watch TV, and dead people should not be robbed of their decency."

He said, "What we are seeing on TV suggests that Mumbai city, and the State, was just not prepared for the tragedy. Dead bodies were being carried in a clumsy manner. Nowhere did we see an ambulance, at least there was no visual evidence to show the presence of the State. The State is not reacting fast enough. Even after one hour, the blast sites are not cordoned off."

Sood said, "Terrorism will continue in India. It's a given. Now, we have to show that the State can react fast enough."
