The ususal suspects
The Indian media did not waste much time to start pointing fingers at Pakistan for the recent attacks in Mumbai, India. My heart goes out to all the families who lost the loved ones, but I am just sick of this ‘typical’ blame game.
Times of India is already reporting that Pakistani militants have been captured and that this whole incident could not have happened without support from across the border. Now I am sure that similar to 2001 Indian Parliament Attack, NADRA issued ID cards will be found in possession of all these terrorists and then it will be no brainer! The western media also jumping on the bandwagon is trying its best to portray this as another al-qaeda attack.
Maybe we should also borrow a page from our neighbor’s book and God forbid, next time when we have a terrorist attack in Pakistan, simply blame it on RAW and get on with our lives. In fact a lot of analysts believe that foreign elements have played part in the recent attacks in Pakistan, but unlike the Indian government, our government doesn’t have the balls to blame any external element.
It’s about that the Indian media stop its propaganda and do some soul searching as to the actual reasons behind these attacks. A good starting point maybe, the state of Muslims in India.
