A Sentence With No Full Stops

There can be no doubt about one positive outcome of Kasab’s hanging (So Much More to Unentangle). There won’t be any Kandahar-like hijackings to bargain for his release. He might have become useless as a gamer but would have retained his potential as a bargaining chip.

“If Kasab’s hanging is being looked as the ‘Start Whistle’ of the ‘Final Match’, let it be so; because no result can be drawn from just making strategies in the ‘Green Rooms’ and having sun-bath in the ‘Dug Outs’ – one needs to take the field to execute them.”

One positive effect cannot be in doubt. Nohighjacking or similar efforts to bargain Kassab's release. He is useless as a gamer, but retained his potential as a bargaining chip.

 “Kasab had to be cross-examined before his Indian confessional statement could be admitted in a Pakistani court. Now, his statements have no legal value.”

Legal value in Pakistan? You've got to be joking.If this statement is true, then the legal system in that blighted country is a huge, tragic joke.

The death of a witness does not make his/her statement under oath invalid and inadmissable as legal evidence. Does the esteemed lawyer mean to say that dying declarations have no legal value?

 The time may not be conducive to bold initiatives being attempted. Better to keep chipping away, with small incremental improvements, trade, travel, sports, culture.

This article worries about Indo-Pak relations post-Kasab execution.. We must realise that the Pakistan with whom India might have made peace to solve outstanding problems no longer exists.In its place we have a terrorist controlled state which includes all murderous elements from Afghanistan as well bent upon Jihad .Any amount of write-ups and discussions on TV or the pontifications of 'Terrorism Editors' in our newspapers will not alter this fact.All that these editor log are good at is explaining  to us mangoes what  each abbreviation means!By all means let them make a living out of it.  Not knowing what LeT means or the Quaranic significance of Takiban, Al Queda  etc etc is no deawback  when fighting these goons.All that India needs are good intelligence about these assassins, and an excellent police force/army  unswayed by mercy or political calculations.

"He pointed out that former president Pratibha Patil had been sitting on Kasab’s mercy petition"

Pratibha Patil's term was till July 25 2012, the SC upheld his death penalty in August 2012. Please explain how exactly Pratibha Patil had been sitting on Kasab's 'mercy petition' - otherwise please elaborate whether the reporter was on dope

 Yet another pointless article on Indo - Pak relations with not a whisper about 1) Pakisan's Theocractic system coming in way of better Indo-Pak Relations 2) The poor condition of the religious minorities of Pakistan.

We will never see any real improvement in Indo-Pak relations, unless above 2 points are addressed.

"Bold initiatives are required by the Indian and Pakistani leadership to keep the bilateral ties moving forward and avoid getting into a game of brinkmanship,” says C. Raja Mohan, an Indian strategist.

After decades of genocide and ethnic cleansing, Pakistan is now 99% Muslim. The last remaining Hindus are being subjected to rape, forced conversions and kidnappings, and those who can make it to the border are fleeing to India.

Pakistan has not punished even a single person for the Mumbai attacks.

Every week, there is a report of armed infiltration from Pakistan into J&K. There are hundreds of camps in Paki Kashmir filled with thousands of terrorists who are waiting for the green light to cross over to India.

The solution from our "strategist": bold initiatives to keep bilateral ties moving forward!

If this is strategy, it is no wonder our country is in the state it is in.
