It is time for Indian to face reality and fix these very difficult problems.

Pakistan is at war right now with terrorists who are carrying suicide bombs in major cities and are kidnapping soldiers left and right. On top of that the civilian government is extremely weak right now. Why on earth would they want to trigger a proxy war with India at this moment?

But as the blog alludes to, Bangladeshi terrorists could also be behind the attacks. During a trip to Western India in 1985, I was almost killed by a Bangladeshi infiltrator during a bus ride. He stabbed my leg and grabbed my wallet, but the conductor of the bus and the driver were able to overpower him before he could stab me again and flee the bus.

India has become a safe harbor for millions of Bangladeshi illegal migrants and organized gang members, due in part to the very corrupt Communist Party running West Bengal. I think that India must crack down on these illegal migrants as they are a major security threat to India. Blaming Pakistan all the time detracts from this serious problem.

Indians realize that peace is the only way forward for the country. Nonetheless, India has to worry about the large Muslim minority that at times is hostile to the nation. Pakistan and Bangladesh are doing their best to destabilize India by fomenting violence in order to snatch foreign investment away from India. Its about money. But its also about trying to unify their own divided countries by focusing hatred against India and against Hindus.

Pakistan even played an important part in the Air India bombing of 1985, which was carried out by Sikh terrorists working under their Pakistani masters.

It has to be realized that its not about Kashmir. Its about the existence of Pakistan itself. A prosperous and peaceful India invalidates the very concept of Pakistan. India simply being proves that Pakistan was created not out of lofty ideals, but out of hatred. Hatred of the subcontinent’s heritage and of the Hindu people. Pakistan (and to a lesser extent, Bangladesh) have no choice but to eternally try to sabotage India any way possible.

This may be a handiwork of a communal organisation as the elections are drawing close. Apart from that, the laziness of the police department is to be blamed above all, which was not warned by a recent robbery at a bank at the same place.

Glaciers melting in the Himalayas? – My goodness, it must be the ISI. And as for traffic jams in Delhi . . . . who else could be responsible?

To flatly state, without a shred of evidence — not an iota, a droplet, the slightest trace of an indication — that the atrocity in Jaipur was “sponcered [sic] by Pakistan” is alas too usual to be remarkable, because the blame game is always played to the hilt in the sub-continent. (Consider, for example, Pakistan’s allegations that RAW is responsible for the terrorist excesses of the entirely home-grown thuggish BLA and the feudal rulers in Balochistan.)

It is regrettable that blame is apportioned so readily and so automatically, but it is probably understandable in the context of mutual fear and distrust.

India and Pakistan are making genuine attempts to come closer together, and such efforts can only be applauded. But there are extremists — intellectual, political, racist, religious, and any combination thereof — on both sides who wish there to be no compromise, no rapprochement, no trust.

And the fanatics seem to be winning.
