    Thank you for the article on Mumbai. I probably would not have come across it otherwise.

    Thanks.. I added a working link. It was interesting actually, because when searching for it on youtube I came across an interesting version of the same video that was actually putting a positive Islamic spin on it — i.e. that the takfiri taliban had it coming from the righteous army! Made me think how amazing it that there are basically 3 diametrically opposite ways of viewing the incident 1. as a human rights abuse, 2. as ‘takfiri’ taliban being punished and 3. as the ‘na-pak haramkhor fauj’ abusing true muslims.

    ohhh I’ve seen this making the rounds on facebook. The version I saw went something like:

    Indian soldier beating up Kashmiri muslim.

    Interesting indeed.
