Terrorism is being justified from the perspective of a terrorist. This has nothing to do with Jehad because this is Dhruv's act. Dhruv who is not like Raquib and never wears a skull cap, and has one wife, one daughter and one dog.

But because Raquib is ...well because Raquib wears a skull cap, he will be suspected for the Bombay blasts in 2006.

Tathagata Chowdhury, the playwright of this piece was awarded The Best Actor and Best Playwright awards at the Kalakranti Theatre Festival in 2007, for The Mumbai Zoo. He performs both the characters. The play has represented India at the South Asian Theatre Festival, Ohio, USA in 2014.
