Comments on: America’s expanding war in Pakistan http://blogs.reuters.com/pakistan/2008/11/23/americas-expanding-war-in-pakistan/ Perspectives on Pakistan Thu, 01 Oct 2015 19:31:05 +0000 hourly 1 http://wordpress.org/?v=4.2.5 By: Shayan http://blogs.reuters.com/pakistan/2008/11/23/americas-expanding-war-in-pakistan/comment-page-1/#comment-8095 Wed, 03 Dec 2008 08:22:23 +0000 http://blogs.reuters.com/pakistan/?p=924#comment-8095 This morning I came to know from indian media that per capita income of residnts of Mumbai being Rs. 48000 and this is three times greater than the other parts of India. Vow how with this doomsday stats you (Indians) can calim of being an emerging power dreaming of reigning the whole world. For all of you self seekers, pakistan has per capita income of more than one thousand US Dollar inspite of all the financial and political problems we are surrounded with these days. But we are capable nation and are well equipped to get out of this mess sooner or later.

Remember, when you share a wall with the house that has termites, it is also going to cause problems in your house. (Termites being the extremists in Pakistan – just to be obvious)

I do think there are many progressives in Pakistan who do not believe in terrorism or being involved in these acts. But there are definitely many who have vowed to dedicate their lives to kill people in India or the west. The problem they probably outnumber the moderates. Such extremists also exist in India, namely MNS, whose aim is to makes lives for others miserable, but they are a very small number.

I as an India do not want to see Pakistan crumble. If it does we will see a huge influx of these extremist in India.

our cricket team was lead by a muslim, not too long ago half of our cricket team were muslims..in fact the bowling spearhead is a muslim….

what about the bollywood..? the most highly watched and followed stars/icons in bollywood were and are muslims…what about the iconic and the most popular lyricists, writers, singers????

what about our ex president who also happened to be our nuclear scientist????

what about the number muslims in the army????

I am sorry to say but folks like you no matter where they are will feel out of place….you not only need to take a good hard look at yourself…I also strongly advise you to make a trip to Mumbai and perhaps visit and spend some time with those who lost their friends and families…..

Your ignorance amuses me. I visited India many times and I stayed at the Trident Oberoi last year and The Taj Mahal hotel a few years ago. I have to admit this was very well planned attack. These attacks were executed when the security is off guard. These terroists are cowards and they are just around my age which is a scary thought. What are you implying that India cannot take care of itself? The United States offered help but we refused. We can take care of ourselves. Btw It’s Mumbai not Bombay. Take your arrogance and shove it.

Indians are even lower than the level of rats in Pakistan and have no legal rights under Islamic Law, just to make the facts straight for all those wondering.

Perhaps during the partition, much more should have gone to Pakistan.

The West ,especially “latte” liberal Americans, especially TIME magazine does not know how brutal and Genocidal the Indians were treated for the last 1000 or so years by the Muslims as they beheaded millions of hindus, took away their land, their dignity, raped their women, stole their wealth, destroyed their culture and many historically significant temples and millions other were forced to convert or die.

Hindus never forced their religion, by force or any other means on others, never.

Compared to the way Hindus were treated, the muslims are being treated much better than a lot of hindus are even, to fulfill the requirements of the constitution.

They just choose the path of hate, just like their ancestors and don’t want to work hard, be modern, have 50 children per family, don’t want to embrace modern education, because its probably Haram or evil or a threat to their religion to embrace the modern world.

Any people who do not embrace democracy, secularity, univeral morality, modernism, education, univeral logic and rationality, regardless of who they are, will always live a lower standard of life, where ever they live.

Why does no one, especially some muslims, realize that this is why they are suffering all over the world? They are their worst own enemy.

But what we want from them is to LIVE AND LET LIVE. We as the nation of India can support ourselves when it comes to economics and military defense. Its only terrorism which we cant combat because of ISI. We have nothing against Pakistani people we just want them to leave us alone and live and let live.

Attacking Pakistan is worse than hubris, it’s madness. If there was ever a country which we needed to be friends with, it’s Pakistan – it’s a moderate, democratic country struggling against a violent fundamentalist movement – Meanwhile the US promotes democracy and stability in this nuclear armed state by raiding across their borders, funding their dictators, and generally promoting war and havoc. This exactly the kind of violent arrogance that lost us the war in Vietnam. So we raid the NWFP. We kill a few Taliban and Al-Qaeda “suspects” and also a lot of civilians and those last shreds of goodwill Pakistanis and the rest of the Muslim world have towards the US. We strike the targets but we will lose Pakistan and we will lose the war.
What the US doesn’t understand is that you can’t fight ideas with guns – our best weapon is our democracy and our values, and we have thrown those in the gutter.

I hope some of you will change you childish minds or at least explain how were these attacks possible in city like Bombay when Indian government was so much in control of India.

Perhaps US should also take control of Bombay haan Nikhil

I am disgusted with Islamic terror.

I hope you know that Pakistanis cannot even control their own country right now. How is Pakistan modernizing? You’re government is very unstable as well. India has been to soft on Pakistan for so many years. I think it’s about time we enter Pakistan and eliminate all these jihadis.

I agree with Rick and Vijay/.
