This is an archived blog post from The Acorn.
A well-known think-tanker, a retired Pakistan army officer, insinuates that since Indian investigators, like their Pakistani counterparts, use torture while interrogating suspects, it is possible for them to unearth a Pakistani connection to the terrorist attacks on Mumbai. He cites the assassination of Mahatma Gandhi as evidence that Hindu groups could ’use violence to derail the peace process. And he proposes that India and Pakistan conduct a joint inquiry along with a neutral observer. Not any neutral observer, but UNMOGIP, an defunct outfit that India is not very fond of.
A well-known columnist, again a former Pakistan army officer, writes:
But something new is emerging, a galaxy of heroes of whom the masses can be proud: in Iraq the resistance which has humbled and made a mockery of American might, in Lebanon Hasan Nasrallah and glorious Hezbollah, in the Gaza Strip equally valiant Hamas, in Afghanistan a resurgent resistance and, whether anyone likes it or not, Sheikh Osama bin Laden.
