Pak may redeploy 1 lakh troops along Indian border

ExpressIndia.com

Posted: Nov 30, 2008 at 1440 hrs IST

Islamabad: Warning of mounting tension with India in the wake of the Mumbai terror attacks, Pakistan's security apparatus has said that up to one lakh troops could be redeployed along the border with India after diverting them from fighting militants in the restive Afghan frontier.

The next two days would be crucial in determining how the situation would unfold, senior security officials were quoted as saying by the local media on a background briefing organised for Pakistani journalists on Saturday.

Pakistan would wind up its "war on terror" on the Afghan borders if the situation in the east "spiralled out of control", the officials were quoted as saying by the Dawn newspaper. The top officials categorised the current state of Pakistan-India relations as "tense".

"They (Indians) are taking the escalation level up at a very brisk pace," one official said.

Describing the situation as "crisis-like", the officials said Pakistan would pull out "all the troops" now deployed in the country's northwest if India deployed forces on its border with Pakistan.


There are about 90,000 to 100,000 troops fighting pro-Taliban militants in the tribal belt, the officials said.

India and Pakistan agreed to a ceasefire along the borders in Kashmir in late 2003, allowing Islamabad to divert more troops for quelling a raging Taliban-led insurgency in North West Frontier Province and adjoining tribal areas bordering Afghanistan. The US has described the tribal belt as a safe haven for Taliban and al-Qaeda elements.

If tension escalated with India, the "war on terror won't be our priority", a security official said during the briefing. He said the Pakistani security establishment would not "leave anything" on the Afghan border if troops were diverted to the Indian frontier.

Knee jerk Deshmukh likely to be removed as CM

After Shivraj Patil, it may be Maharashtra Chief Minister Vilasrao Deshmukh's turn next. Deshmukh, in the line of fire in the wake of the Mumbai terror attacks, is likely to be removed over the next few days.

Sources said no decision had been taken yet on who would replace him, but his exit was likely in the next couple of days.

Sunday was an action-packed day. It began with the Union Home Minister Shivraj Patil resigning and ended with the likelihood of the Maharashtra Chief Minister being replaced. In the middle, there was speculation over the National Security Adviser M K Narayanan having quit, but the PMO was quick to refute that.

Both Patil and Deshmukh came under attack at Saturday's Congress Working Committee meeting and leaders suggested that someone must own responsibility. Deshmukh, however, seemed rather unconcerned on Sunday, when he made his first visit inside a devastated Taj hotel.

He had for company film director Ram Gopal Verma and his son Ritiesh, the film actor. Later, the same group visited the Trident as well.

The Chief Minister was clearly unconcerned about insensitivities or about the impending questions of his survival.

However, sources in Delhi had already said that it was this kind of casual approach, which would see the clock ticking for both Deshmukh and his Deputy Chief Minister R R Patil, who did his own bit to trivialise the tragedy with this casual remark.

Wake up Mumbai. Fight back. Fight back. Fight back!

By Shobhaa De
November 29, 12:01 pm

My fingers are shaking as I key in this piece, minutes after watching visuals of panic stricken commuters at CST station, running helter skelter as fresh reports of terrorist attacks near the RBI and GT Hospital send a grievously wounded Mumbai reeling once again…to save itself. If these horrific attacks that have struck every Mumbaikar’s heart do not act as a serious wake up call, nothing else can or will.
The most important lesson to learn from the carnage is that the time has come for citizens to take control of their lives and their beloved city, for if they don’t, they will be dead.What the past 70 hours have demonstrated unambiguously is that our city fathers have learned nothing from past blows in our gut, or else innocents would not have lost their lives because there was no one in charge when the city most needed a figure, capable of leading from the front.
The chief minister showed up outside the Trident, when the crisis was nearly over. Delhi politicians caused more of a nuisance than anything else when the prime minister, along with Sonia Gandhi made the mandatory hospital visits…diverted traffic and police attention.But it took a Narendra Modi to show us what political opportunism is all about when he arrogantly arrived here with bags of money to distribute to the families of Mumbai’s real heroes – the slain policemen, and wasted no time in capitalizing on the tragedy to cold bloodedly push his own agenda.

There were several shocking failures and lapses…But what good is a post- mortem, after the damage is done? What good, delayed responses – we could have, we should have, why didn’t so-and-so do this or that? The truth is, we effed up. Each and every one of us. Let us not point fingers and play the blame game, for it is dangerous and unproductive. We were caught off guard – once again. This time there is no excuse. How many attacks is it going to take for Mumbai to act and save itself?
And where should we begin? I would say let us start from taking a few key lessons from America, post 9/11. The entire country acted as one. Political differences were set aside and a superbly strategized counter-terrorism plan put into place.There have been no further attacks since then. Next, we need to pay attention to the immediate requirements of our over- burdened police force – those poor constables armed with nothing more lethal than laathis can ‘t chase a rabid dog, forget about taking on hard core, armed terrorists.Give them equipment, training and autonomy to act in such an emergency without waiting for bureaucratic clearances, then see the difference. We need an action plan to deal with crises. Citizens need to be taken into confidence with a disaster management strategy, and regular drills to keep people alert.What became evident( and cost countless lives) was the absence of leadership.
With whom did the buck stop?
Who was in charge of taking key and timely decisions?
Was there anyone at all who was monitoring and co ordinating collective efforts to deal with each ghastly development? Individual stories of heroism are not enough in such situations – they create martyrs, nothing else. We lost outstanding officers, who misread the threat to their own lives and were not adequately protected. Our police lack basic gear – helmets, bullet proof jackets, riot shields. We expect them to protect us while they themselves are unprotected. Lack of funds is a poor excuse. Take a look at any minor politico moving around with a convoy of police cars, security personnel, ambulances. These privileges must be instantly withdrawn and reserved exclusively for top ranking politicians alone.Help in the form of crack commando units, the Marcos, NSG and the Army, arrived several hours after Operation Mumbai was underway. Naval helicopters were deployed still later. Securing a city like Mumbai is not an easy job. But it is possible . Something simple like neighbourhood sirens to alert citizens of an impending attack, are not that difficult to install. This IS war – make no mistake about that. Mumbai is hemorraging…bleeding a slow death Political tourniquets can’t save us. If we have to save ourselves, we need to perform radical surgery…amputate a few gangrenous limbs. And rely on the mighty heart of this great metropolis – the extraordinary people of Mumbai. But this time I am not going to be a sentimental fool and say, ‘Salaam Mumbai’. It’s time to shout, to holler, “Wake up Mumbai. Fight back. Fight back. Fight back!”

Lessons Learnt?

By Balvinder Singh
On Shobhaa De blog

Don't Bounce Back to normalcy please.In the Army, after every battle or even after simulation of a battle, a session is held that is called "Lessons Learnt". The aim of the exercise is to do an introspection on the operation and bring out the weaknesses that led to the situation and also to correct the mistakes done during the operation itself. Our country has come out victorious out of a battle today. Before slipping into congratulatory mood for too long, we have to get into the "Lessons Learnt" mode first. Let me enumerate a few of the lessons which i think we should have learnt out of this exercise which has certainly given us a bloody nose.

1. Instead of fuming at foreign hand involved in the terrorist operations we should concentrate on strengthening our security mechanism. The nature has given defence system to every object. An insect has its sting which it activates when in danger. The beautiful rose has thorns. Even birds are careful enough and look around ten times for any danger before approaching a food item that has been laid out for them to eat. As far as the human being is concerned, his security system goes right back to the stone or the cave age. He would in addition to having arms and ammunition for his safety, invariably keep a big boulder on the door of the cave to prevent any wild animal from entering and eating up his family.

2.We have our intelligence agencies, our boarder security, our coast guards and other para military forces who are responsible for keeping an eye on our land and maritime boarders in the peace time. Smugglers cross the boarders of our country with impunity, carrying drugs and other contra bands, after bribing the forces which are meant to keep a check on them. So if contra bands can be smuggled , then why not arms and explosives.

3. Further, our police and security system bows to the VIP culture that we have in our country. Flaunting the beacon lights on the car and a group of security or protocol personnel walking behind a VIP has become status symbol rather than necessity .

4. More than half the strength of the police force of a city is busy looking after the security of the VIPs instead of taking care of the same for the common citizen.

5. At the five star hotel gate, a guest will feel insulted if the tall durwan with turban and moustaches does not salute him/her and more so if a security fellow asks for searching the body and the baggage of the guest.

6. At the air ports the VIPs throw tantrums if subjected to security checks.

7. Even a common citizen cares a hoot if he/she notices an unattended object or a suspicious person loitering around.

8. Whenever a security gadget is installed at an office or a public place, the first reaction of the common man is how to by pass the same.

9. Mobile SIM cards are distributed by the service providers without much verification of antecedents of the customer.

10. The land lords don't bother to verify the correct particulars of the tenants. Same goes when contract employees are recruited by companies without getting any police verification done for them.

11. And last but not the least our vote and note hungry politicians are busy washing their dirty linen in public instead of concentrating at real issues staring in face of the country's security.And I will hate to read the headlines in the papers tomorrow that Mumbai bounces back to normalcy. Normalcy in our country will mean all that I have mentioned above. We have to deal with times abnormally. Our country is on the path of unprecedented economic progress and that is not liked by every one around us in the world. So please, please tread cautiously. And don't be in a hurry to bounce back to normalcy.

Pakistani civilians are innocent

By Ojas Purandare
16 Hours Ago on Facebook.

I would not blame the civilians of Pakistan. They are probably just a replica of any other society. Look at the Pakistani junta, they blame Americans for this. Of course I'm sure they would understand it is not the whole of America that needs to blamed but a few minds that orchestrate this. Similarly there are a group of people in Pakistan, and specifically they are Pakistani nationals.The point made earlier was true that more than Kashmir, these Pakistani groups cannot bear the economic prosperity in India. Another thing, Pakistan itself has always had an identity crisis. It claims to be a democracy, but it has never been. Both sides of the border, the politicians are the biggest terrorists than those youngsters who fired aimlessly in Mumbai.
Few points*
  • I would ask my Pakistani contemporaries, India and Pakistan are normally terror prone nations, but why is that the west and all other nations find India safer than Pakistan?*
  • Why is that cricket teams more or less always refuse to tour Pakistan, but on most of the time readily tour India?*
  • Why is that after repeated hardcore evidences sent to Pakistan that Dawood Ibrahim stays in Karachi, Pakistan is not ready to cooperate? Why can't it sign an extradition treaty with India?

Pakistan just claims to cooperate, but has never done that.Pakistan more or less has never had a national goal of prosperity, With all the levels of corruption in India, India is where it is , Pakistan is unfortunately no where. Your politicians are your real enemies not India. Your army is one of those who never follow international protocols of war, rape innocent women brutally torture captives. India has always gracefully captured and sent all the captives back to you time and again from the Wagah Border.The whole world knows where the terrorist camps are , but neither the govt of Pakistan is doing anything neither they are letting anyone else do it. The people of Pakistan may argue that Indians dnt like us and hence all these accusations, but unfortunately the whole world equates Pakistan with terror. Who all are you going to silence? The youth of Pakistan is an answer to this, I still believe this generation needs to take over Pakistan and make it prove itself as a nation. Otherwise the day is not far away that Pakistan too will be declared as a terrorist state.My comments are based on my own views, to all the Pakistani nationals, I lost a dear friend in the blast. Today I hate the Pak military, their politicians. but I do not hate the people.

Kasab killed Karkare, Salaskar and Kamte: Mumbai police

29 Nov 2008, 1946 hrs IST, PTI
Source: Times Of India

MUMBAI: Mohammad Ajmal Mohammad Amin Kasab, the only terrorist to have been arrested in connection with the three-day terror attack, shot dead
Anti-Terrorism Squad (ATS) chief Hemant Karkare, Mumbai police sources said here on Saturday. They said Kasab, a Pakistani national who was remanded to police custody till December 11, also killed encounter specialist Vijay Salaskar and Additional Commissioner of Police Ashok Kamte. The sources said ten terrorists had arrived in the city for the first time on the night of Wednesday using the sea route and then dispersed in pairs to the targeted locations. The terrorists allegedly took taxis to their assigned locations and paid in Indian currency. "Each terrorist was carrying Rs 6,200 with them," a senior police official said. Kasab was arrested on the night of Wednesday after his partner, whose identity is stated to be Ismail Khan, was shot dead by the police at Girgaum Chowpatty locality in south Mumbai. Kasab and his partner had first opened fire at CST railway station and then proceeded to Cama hospital and G T Hospital, a senior police official said. Kasab has allegedly revealed that their plan was to take hostages at the Taj hotel, Oberoi Hotel and Nariman House and then use them to escape from the city, he added. He said the Indian financial capital was chosen keeping in mind the worldwide impact it would have. According to a Mumbai crime branch official, the ten terrorists had not come to Mumbai before this to conduct any 'recce' and they had learnt about the locations with the help of Google Earth. The police are still verifying as to how the blast in suburban Vile Parle and Dockyard Road in south Mumbai was executed and if the terrorist had received help from any local group.

What They Hate About Mumbai

By SUKETU MEHTA
Published: November 29, 2008

MY bleeding city. My poor great bleeding heart of a city. Why do they go after Mumbai? There’s something about this island-state that appalls religious extremists, Hindus and Muslims alike. Perhaps because Mumbai stands for lucre, profane dreams and an indiscriminate openness.
Mumbai is all about dhandha, or transaction. From the street food vendor squatting on a sidewalk, fiercely guarding his little business, to the tycoons and their dreams of acquiring Hollywood, this city understands money and has no guilt about the getting and spending of it. I once asked a Muslim man living in a shack without indoor plumbing what kept him in the city. “Mumbai is a golden songbird,” he said. It flies quick and sly, and you’ll have to work hard to catch it, but if you do, a fabulous fortune will open up for you. The executives who congregated in the Taj Mahal hotel were chasing this golden songbird. The terrorists want to kill the songbird.

Just as cinema is a mass dream of the audience, Mumbai is a mass dream of the peoples of South Asia. Bollywood movies are the most popular form of entertainment across the subcontinent. Through them, every Pakistani and Bangladeshi is familiar with the wedding-cake architecture of the Taj and the arc of the Gateway of India, symbols of the city that gives the industry its name. It is no wonder that one of the first things the Taliban did upon entering Kabul was to shut down the Bollywood video rental stores. The Taliban also banned, wouldn’t you know it, the keeping of songbirds.
Bollywood dream-makers are shaken. “I am ashamed to say this,” Amitabh Bachchan, superstar of a hundred action movies, wrote on his blog. “As the events of the terror attack unfolded in front of me, I did something for the first time and one that I had hoped never ever to be in a situation to do. Before retiring for the night, I pulled out my licensed .32 revolver, loaded it and put it under my pillow.”

Mumbai is a “soft target,” the terrorism analysts say. Anybody can walk into the hotels, the hospitals, the train stations, and start spraying with a machine gun. Where are the metal detectors, the random bag checks? In Mumbai, it’s impossible to control the crowd. In other cities, if there’s an explosion, people run away from it. In Mumbai, people run toward it — to help. Greater Mumbai takes in a million new residents a year. This is the problem, say the nativists. The city is just too hospitable. You let them in, and they break your heart.
In the Bombay I grew up in, your religion was a personal eccentricity, like a hairstyle. In my school, you were denominated by which cricketer or Bollywood star you worshiped, not which prophet. In today’s Mumbai, things have changed. Hindu and Muslim demagogues want the mobs to come out again in the streets, and slaughter one another in the name of God. They want India and Pakistan to go to war. They want Indian Muslims to be expelled. They want India to get out of Kashmir. They want mosques torn down. They want temples bombed.

And now it looks as if the latest terrorists were our neighbors, young men dressed not in Afghan tunics but in blue jeans and designer T-shirts. Being South Asian, they would have grown up watching the painted lady that is Mumbai in the movies: a city of flashy cars and flashier women. A pleasure-loving city, a sensual city. Everything that preachers of every religion thunder against. It is, as a monk of the pacifist Jain religion explained to me, “paap-ni-bhoomi”: the sinful land.

In 1993, Hindu mobs burned people alive in the streets — for the crime of being Muslim in Mumbai. Now these young Muslim men murdered people in front of their families — for the crime of visiting Mumbai. They attacked the luxury businessmen’s hotels. They attacked the open-air Cafe Leopold, where backpackers of the world refresh themselves with cheap beer out of three-foot-high towers before heading out into India. Their drunken revelry, their shameless flirting, must have offended the righteous believers in the jihad. They attacked the train station everyone calls V.T., the terminus for runaways and dreamers from all across India. And in the attack on the Chabad house, for the first time ever, it became dangerous to be Jewish in India.
The terrorists’ message was clear: Stay away from Mumbai or you will get killed. Cricket matches with visiting English and Australian teams have been shelved. Japanese and Western companies have closed their Mumbai offices and prohibited their employees from visiting the city. Tour groups are canceling long-planned trips.

But the best answer to the terrorists is to dream bigger, make even more money, and visit Mumbai more than ever. Dream of making a good home for all Mumbaikars, not just the denizens of $500-a-night hotel rooms. Dream not just of Bollywood stars like Aishwarya Rai or Shah Rukh Khan, but of clean running water, humane mass transit, better toilets, a responsive government. Make a killing not in God’s name but in the stock market, and then turn up the forbidden music and dance; work hard and party harder.
If the rest of the world wants to help, it should run toward the explosion. It should fly to Mumbai, and spend money. Where else are you going to be safe? New York? London? Madrid?

So I’m booking flights to Mumbai. I’m going to go get a beer at the Leopold, stroll over to the Taj for samosas at the Sea Lounge, and watch a Bollywood movie at the Metro. Stimulus doesn’t have to be just economic.

As many (if not even more than) 150 innocent civilians and anti-terrorist commandos were massacred by Islamic terrorist thugs and yet: NO MUSLIM OUTRAGE! NONE!
Here are the following reactions from many Muslims:
1) "We condemn these attacks, but you must note the major discrimination against Muslims by Hindus".

2) "We condemn these attacks, but you must note the warming relations between the Great Satan (USA) and the Little Satan (The Zionist Entity - aka Israel)."

3) "We condemn these attacks. The Zionists and their CIA friends were responsible."
4) "Allah Akbar! We have killed many infidels. ALLAH AKBAR! I will be very happy to be with my camel and goat in bed today, Inshallah. ALLAH AKBAR!"

Allah: Peace Be Upon Him? Are you sure dude?

People often say that terrorists have no religion. Islam and Terrorism are not synonymous. Well that is actually true. But consider this-

  1. Muslims have killed more than 100 million Hindus since they first began their jihad against India, in the 660s AD.
  2. Islamic clerics and other islamic so called jihadists and other adherents of this political ideology, Islam, have invaded, occupied, massacred, and enslaved more than 1/5 of the world in the past 1400 years! MUSLIMS HAVE KILLED MORE THAN 100 MILLION HINDUS SINCE THE BEGINNING OF THEIR JIHAD AGAINST INDIA! MUSLIMS HAVE KILLED HUNDREDS OF THOUSANDS OF JEWS (in fact, the first non-Arab victims of Muslims were Jews - Mohammad personally beheaded several hundred of them). MUSLIMS HAVE KILLED MILLIONS OF CHRISTIANS AND TAKEN COUNTLESS OTHERS INTO SLAVERY!
  3. Even now, when it is OBVIOUS that where ever there are Muslims, there is Islamic fundamentalism/ terrorism (America, Israel, India, Serbia, Britain, Australia, The Philippines, Sudan, Armenia, Greece, Holland, France, Denmark, Macedonia, Montenegro, Russia, and the list goes on...), we never hear Muslims condemn these acts. We never hear them whine and cry about them. We never them riot or protest against those cowardly jihadi acts.
  4. When America, Israel, India, Serbia, Russia, Australia, Britain, and other non-Muslim countries dare to defend themselves in any way, you start riots and protests; these Islamic fundamentalists start accusing these nations of "racism", "bigotry", "intolerance", "hatred", and God knows what else; they start whining and crying to the UN and leftist Western media; and doing everything you can to get the world on their support.
  5. They kill our women and children and then we kill those of who are responsible. But then we are termed as "imperialists","racists", "bigots" and "Islamophobes"! Yes, Islam followers are victims of "discrimination" and "bigotry"; but not innocent helpless women and children of Afghanistan who are deprived of their basic liberty of that of right to education even when we are in 21st century.
  6. This "peaceful" "religion" is constantly being "discriminated" against so much that the leaders of virtually all non-Muslim countries still let them immigrate to them, call Islam a "religion of peace", and bend over backwards for its followers, while they try to impose their "peaceful" "religion" on everyone. And by the way, just so everyone knows how "peaceful" Islam is and just how this so-called "discrimination" against Muslims relates to the latest attacks against my Mumbai, let me quote the holy book of Islam, the Koran:
  • Koran 8:7 “Allah wished to confirm the truth by His words: ‘Wipe the infidels [non-Muslims] out to the last.’”
  • Koran 8:39 “So, fight them till all opposition ends and the only religion is Islam.”
  • Koran 8:59 “The infidels should not think that they can get away from us. Prepare against them whatever arms and weaponry you can muster so that you may terrorize them. They are your enemy and Allah’s enemy.”
  • Koran 8:60 “Prepare against them [non-Muslims] whatever arms and cavalry you can muster that you may strike terror in the enemies of Allah [non-Muslims], and others besides them not known to you. Whatever you spend in Allah’s Cause will be repaid in full, and no wrong will be done to you.”
  • Koran 9:5 “When the sacred forbidden months for fighting are past, fight and kill disbelievers [non-Muslims] wherever you find them, take them captive, beleaguer them, and lie in wait and ambush them using every stratagem of war”"The unbelievers [non-Muslims] are your inveterate foe."
  • Koran: 4:101 ,Koran: 33.27:And He made you heirs to their land and their dwellings and their property, and (to) a land which you have not yet trodden, and Allah has power over all things.
  • Koran: 47.4: So when you meet in battle those who disbelieve, then smite the necks until when you have overcome them, then make (them) prisoners, and afterwards either set them free as a favor or let them ransom (themselves) until the war terminates. That (shall be so); and if Allah had pleased He would certainly have exacted what is due from them, but that He may try some of you by means of others; and (as for) those who are slain in the way of Allah, He will by no means allow their deeds to perish.
  • Koran 21:44: Do they see Us advancing, gradually reducing the land (in their control), curtailing its borders on all sides? It is they who will be overcome.
  • Koran: 47.35: And be not slack so as to cry for peace and you have the upper hand, and Allah is with you, and He will not bring your deeds to naught. "Muslims, do not make friends with any but your own people."
  • Koran: 5:51:"It is not fitting for a Prophet that he should have prisoners of war until he has made a great slaughter in the land."
  • Koran 8:67,Koran 5:51 “Believers [Muslims], take not Jews and Christians for your friends. They are but friends and protectors to each other.”
  • Koran 74:31 “We have appointed nineteen angels to be the wardens of the Hell Fire. We made a stumbling-block for those who disbelieve [non-Muslims] and We have fixed their number as a trial for unbelievers in order that the People of the Book [Jews and Christians] may arrive with certainty, and that no doubts may be left for the People of the Book, those in whose hearts is a disease.”
  • Koran 88:1: “Has the narration reached you of the overwhelming (calamity)? Some faces (Jews and Christians) that Day, will be humiliated, downcast, scorched by the burning fire, while they are made to drink from a boiling hot spring.”
  • Koran 9:29 “Fight those who do not believe in Allah or the Last Day, who do not forbid that which has been forbidden by Allah and His Messenger, or acknowledge the Religion of Truth (Islam), (even if they are) People of the Book (Christians and Jews), until they pay the Jizyah tribute tax in submission, feeling themselves subdued and brought low.”
  • [Another translation says:] “pay the tax in acknowledgment of our superiority and their state of subjection.”

Why Mumbai???

By SUYASHH GUPTA
Published: November 29, 2008

The Only reason Pak does this to India time and again is coz it is jealous of our country's progress. India's economy has been booming to great levels. These attacks lead to distrupting the economy.The stock market was closed yesterday!! Mumbai is the financial capital of india, they think if they can destroy Mumbai, they wld be able to take into hands all of India. But, they shld fkin digest the fact that their country CANT, AND WILL NEVER reach the heights India has.

I think Kashmir has never been a issue in their minds.They care a f*** about Kashmir, we should give them Kashmir just as a 'trial' and see if they keep their mouths shut after that. I have a feeling THEY WON'T STILL...jst coz the reason that they cant see India progressing. India and pakistan divided at the same time. Look where India is now and where Pakistan is.

I personally an not pissed at Islam. People should not stereotype a religion based on only a few who create terror and actually belong to the religion.Its not Islam, IT'S PAKISTAN that is the problem for us; problem for the whole world (except for China, because China thrives on such opportunities laid out against India, as India is a potential threat to China economy-wise).
Honestly, IT IS HIGH TIME NOW, PAKISTAN NEEDS TO LEARN A LESSON! they cant fuking mess with our country and stay safe. Im not saying we must wage war against its sovereignty, or go nuke Pakistan. BUT ERADICATE THESE MOTHERFUCKING CUNTMUSCLE TERRORISTS!
They need to be killed and packaged to hell from where they never shall get reincarnated!!! as I am sure even Prophet Muhammad would never forgive them.

"An eye for an eye makes the whole world go blind"- Mahatma Gandhi

I abide by this quote.
So I think nuclear warfare or any kind of warfare which costs innocent lives to be lost is not any option to go out against Pakistan.But when I hear this-"Tolerance beyond the virtue of ignorance is cowardice"- (by Unknown to me)
So, I feel that we should act now- 'enough is enough'- as made by Shobhaa De.Only peaceful dialogue is not gonna help to curb cross-border terrorism.It is evident that the terrorists came from Karachi, Sind, in Pakistan.A survivor who came out of Taj safely said that he could hear people talking to someone in Karachi.
