    Hello,

    I am a mumbaikar as well. Thank you for this blog. I read an interesting comment about how media manipulates opinion in India. This is sadly true. There exists a lot of anti-Pakistan propoganda. But to be frank this is the only pro-India blog/article of Pakistani origin I have ever seen. After the Mumbai attacks I saw a clipping of Geo TV which I believe is a Pakistani news channel in which they had invited the Pakistani defence analyst to express his views regarding the attacks and India’s accusation. He pointed at Mohd. Ajmal Kasab’s picture and said that this man was an Indian and the terror striked were conducted by the Indian govt. 9/11 style. This convinced me that both India and Pakistan are victims of the state propoganda. Both the countries need to change their politicans and leaders if they want peace.

    I dont accept a few paragraphs in a vague article as proof.

    For a few posters here especially those that feel an anger towards India espe for its Kashmir policies/ alluding to so called ‘mistreatment’ of Indian Muslims,I have some observations. Some of these may be wrong and some quite simplistic in conclusions, but I encourage any sane/non name calling corrections. Also I agree that any govt’s policies are never without any adverse reaction from somewhere and certainly Indian bureaucrats and politicians have misserved the great people-whether Muslims or Hindus.

    Now lets talk about the amusing charge of ‘Muslims in India are mistreated so they are rising up in revolt’…

    In any country, especially one with India with huge population competing for limited resources including jobs, education opportunities, land etc; there are bound to be feelings of deprivation/injustice etc. But many of times it is due to sub continent
