An article by Aatish Taseer in the WSJ a few days back, titled Why My Father Hated India, is still causing waves in Pakistan:

Ten days before he was assassinated in January, my father, Salman Taseer, sent out a tweet about an Indian rocket that had come down over the Bay of Bengal: "Why does India make fools of themselves messing in space technology? Stick 2 bollywood my advice."

My father was the governor of Punjab, Pakistan's largest province, and his tweet, with its taunt at India's misfortune, would have delighted his many thousands of followers. It fed straight into Pakistan's unhealthy obsession with India, the country from which it was carved in 1947.

Salman Taseer, a Pakistani, seems to have had a love-hate relationship with India. His son Aatish Taseer, an Indian, sems to have a hate-hate relationship with his father, who jilted his mother and left him to grow up without a real father figure. His father was not responsible for partition. Before he died he did some signal noble acts for which he paid with his life.
