“Yesterday”:http://www.expressindia.com/fullstory.php?newsid=20016 in the Indian state of Jammu and Kashmir
bq. In a pre-dawn strike, militants on Monday gunned down 24 Kashmiri Pandits, including 11 women and two children, at a hamlet in Pulwama district of South Kashmir, dealing a blow to state government’s plan to bring back Hindu migrants.
and here is what “Richard Boucher”:http://www.hindustantimes.com/news/181_221254,0008.htm , the state department spokesman had to say
bq. Boucher said “violence will not solve Kashmir’s problems. Dialogue remains a critical element in the normalization of relations between India and Pakistan,”
How come you did not invite Saddam Hussein or Osama to the white house and engage in a dialogue ? Indians have even done that. Our Prime Minister “went to Pakistan”:http://www.rediff.com/news/1999/feb/20bus1.htm, asked for peace. Musharraf sent his troops to “Kargil”:http://www.rediff.com/news/1999/may/26kash2.htm. We invited “Musharraf to India”:http://www.punjabilok.com/musharraf_visit/main_page1.htm. We got more terrorists after that. So please, don’t insult the Indians by asking for dialogue. You look ignorant and stupid in the eyes of 1 Billion people.
