Incidents Thought and Reason

On the Mumbai attacks

This is in response to Kristof’s essay on the recent Mumbai attacks.


Congratulations on a well-written and politically correct essay. But that’s where the kudos end. And the anger begins.

For the harsh reality of Pakistan hiding behind a transparent veil of self-proclaimed innocence is not brought to light.

As regards ‘the olive branch’ extended by the right hand (of Pakistan) – well… well … didn’t you notice an AK-47 hidden by the left hand, the finger firm on the trigger in full readiness to blow us apart ?

You refer to Hindu extremists provoking the minorities in India. What then, about the Muslim terrorists holding the entire world to ransom ?!

Please note – if India were such a frightening place to live in, the Muslims would have all fled to Pakistan and Bangladesh by now. The reason they still inhabit India is because India is a wonderful country.

A country – where they are as much at home as are the Hindus – where they demand privileges and concessions. Have you heard of this happening in any other country? Does your country, for example, have special quotas (in education/work opportunities) for Hindus in that country ??!!

As regards Kashmir, I am sure, all that the Kashmiris want is to be left alone. But if they are left alone, Pakistan would infiltrate into Kashmir and flourish their machine-guns at India, demanding next for Delhi.

No, Mr. Kristof, there is no end to this tug of war between Pakistan and India.

Tensions will escalate and economies will be battered. Time and again. Until Pakistan GENUINELY leaves India alone.

With regards,
– A frustrated and angered Indian citizen

You’re right on dot. There’s no use feigning ignorance and helplessness, when Pakistan has itself nurtured these blood-thirsty vipers.

Thanks for sharing the link! How much more blatant and audacious can they become ?!!!

Agree completely with you….and am not at all surprised at the bunch of lies and the brazen attitude of our ‘neighbours’….cos they know this has been going on and could go on. Only this time, INDIA is ANGRY!! Let’s keep this anger raging in our hearts….

Its true Pallavi,But i feel we should be strong and united before taking on Pakistan…I mean inflitration happens only because there are elements which support them.So we need a better internal security to strenghten it

Two comments from me. I also believe Musharraf did genuinely want to resolve the issue/s with India, that might be one of the reasons why he became unpopular. Secondly, I agree with what Karthik says. We do need to have a security base that is hard, if not impossible, to infiltrate. That attitude of callousness must go. Life has to become more precious.

Karthik & Roopa,
I must thank you for bringing that up. You’re right on spot. It was shocking to see the navy chief allude to the impossibility of keeping a round-the-clock watch on the entire coast. If all of us pass the buck, where is the solution then?

Reminds me of the foll. story (

Once upon a time, there were four people; Their names were Everybody, Somebody, Nobody and Anybody.

Whenever there was an important job to be done, Everybody was sure that Somebody would do it. Anybody could have done it, but Nobody did it. When Nobody did it, Everybody got angry, because it was Everybody’s job. Everybody thought that Somebody would do it, but Nobody realized that Nobody would do it.

So consequently, Everybody blamed Somebody when Nobody did what Anybody could have done in the first place.

listen every body u all dare nt say anything to our country Pakistan.
India has rights for muslims because there r still many muslim majority areas there.what u all knw is to hit on the back.After partition ur government did ur level best to break Pakistan.they stopped the water frm 2 rivers they gave us the most dry areas But we survived by the Grace of Allah Pak.And PAKISTANI chanels r nt saying lies ur chanels r saying lies.If u r having problems in ur country then solve them y the hell r u blaming our country???the truth is that today also after 60 yrs u r unable to accept ur lost and muslims victory in the name of Pakistan.and thats y all u r trying is to break Pakistan

I think you have a point here, about India being plagued by problems and blaming it on Pak. However, I am sure you appreciate this is a blog and not a war-front, so we must maintain etiquette and decorum. To put it simply, we must use polite language 🙂

yeah….i think you r right.i m sory for using harsh language but these blames make me really was good get a polite reply…i think peace is better than war..war,blaming each other and abusing will only end in blood of innocent public of both coountries..
do u all agree?

I certainly agree, PPG (though I’d like to know your real name/blog site). A scene from Slumdog Millionaire left me very touched yesterday….when Jamaal says ‘If it were not for Ram and Allah, I’d still have a mother!’

Peace to all!!

I agree..In my opinion we both countries have a common enemy who is trying to make both countries fight.we have one enemy who is not leting peace..and other than fighting with each oher we need to fight that enemy..[i am sory but i cant tel my name]

So, what do you think?
