india is secular, because Indian Hindus want it, not because Indian Muslims want it - M. J. Akbar

yes, akbar said that, but he loses it when he goes on to claim that "modesty, competence and honesty" are the virtues of manmohan singh.
i'd give him one out of three. yes, manmohan singh is generally modest,
but then manmohan singh has a lot to be modest about :-)
he knows in his heart that he is a very replaceable bench-warmer.

The TOI-let paper is usually filled with crap, but this time, M.J. Akbar hits the nail on the head...
