I can truly understand the Indian governments reckless fingerpointing at us, because
- It considers Pakistan to be the ultimate bogeyman.
- It has no explanation for this serious lapse in security in their own city.
- It has no where else to go, no solution, no answer to what has just happened.
- It has managed to get away with it in the past.
- Elections are only a few months away, someone has to be made the sacrificial goat.
However what really gets to me and I say this straight from the heart, is the crowds and common people of Mumbai chanting “Pakistan Murdabad” on the streets. Is this the spirit of this city??? Ye he Mumbai meri jaan? When Islamabad was in havoc in the Marriot bombing our authorities and public did not bat an eyelash towards India. Yet why is it that India keeps attributing its failures to us. Its pretty sad to keep blaming someone else for your own mistakes, but then thats the easy way is it not?
Considering the scale and planning of this operation even a fool can see that the attackers must have stayed in India for a long long time to do reconnaissance, dry runs, procure arms, arrange for rooms, learn layouts plan timing, synchronize. Are we to all nod our heads in belief that they just happened to come from Pakistan in a ship and attacked Mumbai because the Indian media says so?
Nay I think the militants being from anywhere but India is an impossibility, infact by the pictures I have seen on the various TV channels abuzz with this tragedy, the attackers look nothing like Pakistanis. I would go as far as to say they look like they came from Assam in India itself.
So I think the world and us here in Pakistan would appreciate it if the Indian Authorities could provide some sort of evidence other than the “claim” that the person captured is a Pakistani. After all as far as claims go the Indian authorities have made several tall ones in the past about the samjhota express bombing, the parliment attacks and the most ludicerous one of India being a totally safe place in the world of today.
