Brother, if you respect terrorism or terrorists, living or dead, you have a serious problem.

By: Snake Oil Baron Wed, 14 Jan 2009 03:03:36 +0000 A dead terrorist commands more sympathy than a live Jew or Hindu. I hate this world.

These people wanted to be heros- Martyrs. They do not deserve respect. To either give them any burial or cremate them is helping them achieve their goal. Why should the taxpayers and families of the victims pay to give nine terrorists a burial.
Someone raised a very good point. Pakistani Muslims have no honor. The government of Pakistan will not admit that the bodies are Pakistani, so they will not collect them.
Why bother with dismembering the bodies, or other savage things.
Simply announce publicly that the families or friends have three days to collect the remains from an open field. After that, they will be sprinkled with pigs blood and left for the vultures. No cost, no heroes, and it would send a message to all the muslim terrorists in the world. They would be denied entrance to heaven and their seventy-two virgins.
And yes, to Priya, we forgive them. You don’t seem to understand that forgiveness and consequences are separate things. When someone rapes your daughter, you forgive them, but forgiveness doesn’t mean that the person goes unpunished.

We could trade off the bodies with some of our fishermen captured by Pakistan, but the problem is pakistan dont have any dignity and honour, they always deny that these men were pakistanis.

What to tell about these Jihadis, having lived in hell (Pakistan) for such a long time they are so desparate to go to so called heaven, they completely forget the fact till the bodies are not buried, gates to heaven is closed and virgins will remain virgins lol.

I agree with one of the commentators here that publising pictures of the dead in pakistani newspapers could make the relatives come forward and claim bodies. But again the risk is Pakistan may ban the newspaper which publish pics

Poor terrorists are hanging between hell and heaven, May got help them
Amen !

By: Mumbai Sat, 10 Jan 2009 15:14:03 +0000 Alternatively, they could publish the pictures in Pakistani papers and ask their relatives to come forward and claim the bodies. That would be interesting

By: Raj Sat, 10 Jan 2009 11:57:49 +0000 The real freedom Palestinians require is freedom of thought and freedom of speech which would humanise their thoughts.The politicla problem would be easily solved then.Unfortunately for that to happen they have to shed the yoke of mythical Arab supremacism.
Terrorists lose respect in the civilised world more for their blind submission of mind than for the actual physical atrocities committed.

By: priya Sat, 10 Jan 2009 11:32:30 +0000 They havedone a brutal action for innocent civilians. But what is wrong in giving a burial for them according to their tradition? It doesn’t mean that we honour them by this action.
It is just an action of humanity.

By: Punjabiyaar Sat, 10 Jan 2009 03:54:15 +0000 Respect ? Dude they are dead now.

Is this something these terrorists care about ?
Probably they will be sitting Naked in lap of 72 Virgins.

But the people who send them from Pakistan are alive and kicking they should accept the bodies, its not the question of respect rather its responsibility.

By: Cheri Fri, 09 Jan 2009 20:23:54 +0000 Once a criminal is dead and can do no more harm, nothing is gained from desecrating his body.

But to the person who said:
“One man’s terrorist is another man’s freedom fighter. I do not agree with killing people in the Taj and Oberoi … but what if they were Palestinians trying to draw attention to their freedom struggle? ”

Of course all terrorists believe in their own “excuses” for committing random murders. And they also believe that after they die, they get 72 virgins.
But good people believe there is no such thing as a valid excuse for deliberately shooting at random people.
(As to the poor Palestinian people, if they just got rid of their deeply corrupt leaders, and stopped terrorism, they would immediately get a state, and achieve economic well-being. It’s so very simple.)

By: drewbie Fri, 09 Jan 2009 19:14:12 +0000 “India is under no obligation to give these bodies a proper Muslim burial.”
This is completely true. There must be a procedure for processing unidentified bodies. They could just comply with that.

If Pakistan admits the dead are also pakistani, the bodies should be returned to their families. While the terrorists deserve no respect, India should do the decent thing and not desecrate their bodies.
