Don’t Lose Your Own Head, Mr Hawk

Amit Baruah’s head and heart are in the right place (Peace Won’t Break Out). However, even in the most brutal and tragic acts, there are some red lines. In both the young woman and the soldier’s case, those lines were crossed in a manner that outraged the nation. The popular reaction was not created in a TV studio.

 If the soldier is eating grass, one neednt expect sane 
behaviour from him.' Waging peace is difficult one' is the
best end punch. A balanced opinion.

DEAR SIR, THERE WILL BE NO GENIUNE PEACE BETWEEN INDIA AND PAKISTAN FOR THE NEXT TWO HUNDRED YEARS OR TILL PAKISTAN COLLAPSES WHICHEVER IS EARLIER. PAKISTANI MUSLIMS  ARE BASICALLY SAVAGES AND DO NOT DESERVE CIVILISED TREATMENT. THEY HATE INDIA AND ACCORDING TO PEW GLOBAL STUDIES MORE THAN TWO THIRDS OF THEM FEEL THAT HINDUS / INDIANS ARE THE MAIN EXISTENTIAL THREAT TO THEIR EXISTENCE. WE SHOULD RESPOND TO THE HATE OF THESE SAVAGES IN AN APPROPRIATE MANNER. INDIA SHOULD DO EVERYTHING POSSIBLE TO HASTEN THE BREAK UP OF PAKISTAN LIKE INDIRA GANDHI DID IN 1971. FURTHER, INDIA SHOULD USE COVERT ACTIVITIES TO WAGE WAR ON PAKISTAN GIVING THEM TEN TIMES MORE TERROR THAN WHAT THEY DISH OUT TO US. THIS IS THE UTTER TRUTH ABOUT PAKISTAN  THANK YOU

 The columnist's head and heart are in the right place. However, even in the most brutal and tragic acts against human beings, there are some red lines. In both the young woman and the soldier's case, those lines were crossed in a manner that outraged the nation. The popular reaction was not created in a TV studio.

"Nor does the simple killing of an Indian soldier by Pakistani fire along the Line of Control (LoC). But, if he’s been decapitated, well, that’s quite another story." so for the effing moron baruah, being killed by a bullet shot from 100m away is the same as being tortured and decapitated.
and clearly he hasn't considered that fact that every provocation - for want of a better word -- comes from pakistan while india doesn't even bomb terrorist camps in pakistan.

Reasonable people understand that soldiers occasionally are killed on either side. Descreating a dead human being indeed compounds the offence of killing him. Think about it - a fellow human being has just been shot and life snuffed out of him, his body is still warm and the thing to be done is to cut off his head or limbs. What devilish thinking! What satanic act!

If we do not have the spine to stand up to Pak, how in the world are we going to stand up to CHina?

What is need of the hour is simply this-we need to decide whether we want a stable and prosperous Pak or whether we want a bankrupt and a weak Pakistan. We have not yet decided this.

There are certain neighbors, if when powerful will be of great help to us. And there are other neighbors who if strong, will create constant problems for us. Pakistan belongs to the latter group. Once we get this fact, everything else falls in place. 

Right now, we simply have no clue what kind of a Pakistan we want. And all the cluelessness we see from UPA result from this.
