Kargillian blunder

A neologism and a rap sheet

This is an archived blog post from The Acorn.

The editorial board of Lahore’s Daily Times, always the one to tread softly around Musharraf—blaming his advisors’ rather than the man himself—deserves honourable mention today.

Not only does the editorial contain a veritable rap sheet against the man. It has topped it with inventing a new adjective: Kargillian”, to describe blunders of the kind Musharraf made.

Now, what would have caused the newspaper to be so brave as to rub it in so.
