Hypocrisy at its best.

Everyone involved in the destruction of the Masjid should be punished. India talks about punishing the people involved in 26/11, but keeps mum when it comes to Babri Masjid. Hypocrisy at its best.

Comparing 26/11 with dilapildted BABRI at Ayodya???

How can you compare the massacre of 26/11 with the destruction of a dilapidated STRUCTURE at Ayodya??? Would you have been happier if on 6/12/92, the Police had FIRED at the INDIANS who rushed into the BABRI and killed 500-1000 people in the process saving BABRI???? A life lost can NOT be returned by even ALLAH but a much more magnificent MOSQUE can be built at AYODYA- inshaallah. So stop the heartless "hypocrisy" because the people who DIED on 26/11 were INDIANS and the people "who would have died" on 6/12/92 would also have been INDIANS had the police OPENED FIRE on that day!!!!!!!!!!!

what an ignorant...

hmmm so ghazi hind, fanrtastic cover right....what a choice ghazi hind, kudos and claps.
Now to the point, according to you those who died on 26/11 are indians, i agree. You also say those who would have died on the day the mosque was demolished if the police had opened fire are also indians agreed, now tell me great Ghazi those who died from the riots because of the demolition are or were not INDIANS, is that what you meant great GHAZI.

Come to Sense India lest its' too late

It is so distressing that there are people in India who think that it would have not been proper to stope people who were taking the law in their own hand. In any sane persons opinion, an internal terrorists is worst that an external one. As it is, there are many who are living to see Afzal Guru hand even if there are 27 more on the list before him. If this is not facism then there is no facism. Nobody is talking about the victims of pogrom which followed the demolition of the historic Babri Masjid. Those who bomed Bombay in retaliation found that the very State which proved to be so impotent in 1992 to be virulent in punishing the people who sought justice by their own act. Nobody should condemn the Bombay bombings because they were in retaliation of the acts of criminals at Ajodhya as well as its after shocks in early 1993.
As of now, the State of India has abdicated its responsibility whenever Muslims were at the receiving end. The saddest part is that 1993 senteces, the judge went beyond his brief, calling on the accused by their religion and reprimanded them for bringing their religion in disrepute. Will the same judge, may be a justice now, call Hindus the same or rule that Hinuism is a way of life. But which way of life? Where you find many hungry, killed and maimed in call to save the nation they have assumed responsibility of, women abandoning for lack of fairness?? There are too many things to cover.
Has any of these acts made stronger? Certainly not. India is now so scared of Iran that it has sold itself out to USA, Russia and China. All big military power. What about the 'humanitarian help to Afghans'?? Pakistan and Iran were the only links. And we have Shashi Tharoor, who says Iran has not adhered to NPT. It is cattle calling pot black. What a fall. India is alredy gone to dogs. What remains is which dog taking how much of the bite. No hope for India.

Dare to be just!

The Indian democracy is a great one, albeit a terribly compromised one by those corrupt and in power.

The simple fact is that anyone who has done wrong *should* be served a deserving punishment via a *fair & just* judicial process.

Regardless of which incident it is, be it the Babri Masjid razing that was allowed to happen by the spineless, irrational & heartless folks in power at the time, be it the bloody communal carnage of Gujarat orchestrated by the rascal Narendra Modi, or the seige of the Taj in Mumbai - all strict, careful, fair and disciplined actions should be taken to bring justice to bear upon each case.

But, alas! ...the irony is that there are too many corrupt in power to let that happen. It would be wise to remember that when the balance tilts, the pain inflicted will return to the givers of it today! And that would be a tragedy for us too!

I wonder when I will be able to proudly to proclaim that I am an Indian - today my Indian-ness shrouds me in a shameful cloak!

An Indian who is more a World Citizen than an Indian.

That is a sad story my dear..

Many of us are undergoing same agony as reflected in in your comment. All of us are so ashamed of act that the pride has become a label of shame. Still, we need to pursist to defeat the criminals responsible. Lets chase them and make it a point not to let anything repeat.
