i am not a sympathiser of terrorists. and i certainly had no hand in
the release of the gentlemen you have listed. perhaps you should
direct your ire at the bjp who should explain why they freed the

Instead of condemning the death penalty in India, perhaps this Paki, Jawed Naqvi can turn his ire towards Saudi Arabia? Don't they have public beheadings every friday in Saudi Arabia?

While even Pakis have a global brand in the form of "Terror-export", the Chinese are finding the going difficult wrt to creating global brands.
Why can’t Chinese build global brands?

Here's the letter I wrote to him:

Hi Jawed,

I read with interest your article on Dawn. I've got a question though. Why don't you show the same zeal to Sarabjit ( as you show to Afzal? Is it because he's not a fellow Muslim, or is there a deeper reason I'm missing? It appears to me that his case is far shallower than Afzal's. Maybe it's easier to pontificate to others and more difficult to realize one's own problems.

The redoubtable Sandhya Jain on the 'Animals Rights' industry in India - the industry that wakes up only when the offending rituals are Hindu.
All these worthies have no problems with slowly cutting the throat of a Bakri - slowly - so that it suffers and bleeds at Bakri Id. A huge case of Moral Relativism.
Personally - I think the case is best handled by the instrument of Moral Suasion on the part of the religious leadership such as Jayendra Saraswati etc. As long as the temple is not violating the law - it cannot be the case of the state to intervene. It cannot be the state that tells the Hindu's that they are 'perverting' the Hindu message ( I believe that by sacrificing animals they are) - it has to be the job of the religious leadership.

You might like to read today's news: 11/7 brain admits to plotting abortive hit on Modi "IN HIS confession to police, a copy of which was made available to the Hindustan Times, Faisal Sheikh, the suspected mastermind behind the July 11 Mumbai blasts, has admitted to having planned the failed assassination attempt on Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi as well.
The plan was foiled by Ahmedabad police, which shot dead the four would-be assassins — including Ishrat Jahan, a 19-year-old BSc student from Mumbra, Mumbai — on June 16, 2004. . . . "

Perhaps the UPA govt will now give some award to Faisal Sheikh, try to get all charges against him dropped, and appoint him as a cabninet minister. Shekh has tried to get Modi killed! Therefore, he must be a great patriot, and a super-secularist!!
