bbc, tell me it ain't true!
what, you've been afflicted by an unexpected and unprecedented attack of good sense? what happened to your usual pakistani and marxist editors? asleep at the wheel?
of course, in the next 24 hours, there will be a retraction, as the 'eminent historians' and arjun singh get on the warpath and have the thing reversed.
there will be a little note saying, 'never mind', and we'll be back to racist mythology as usual. we can all sigh in relief then.
a friend who forwarded this thought it was a sudden and inexplicable increase in the bbc's IQ. i wouldnt count on it.
