Sensible "The Dawn"

I am really please to read "The Dawn". This is a Pakistani paper internet edition. I had read articles from this news paper before but today I found it really sensible and realistic. Whatever stated in paper is with the facts available, situation is analysed and no one is blamed for anything, writer's thoughts are rational....

You can read the post Taking stock after the Mumbai Attacks. Writer is aware that there is pressure from India (Bharat) and America. Writer knows there may be envolvement of elements from Pakistan, Laskar - i - taiba leader might have admitted the facts of there envolvement. Article doesn't deny anything, it doesn't say Pakistan is innocent and no it is being targeted. Writer accepts that there is possibility that all of this might have planned well in Pakistan. It asks government to disclose if there is any acceptance of Laskhar - i - taiba's role by his leader and in case if he has accepted. It asks for explanation and same time states that if those elements are Pakistani then we need to take steps to eradicate the problem of terrorism from Pakistani soil.

While targeting there own government it also put up questions like why Bharat is not directly sharing the facts or investigation details with Pakistan. Why is that some intermediaries like FBI is put in between. Well this was the same question I had in my mind which I posted in earlier blog post. Why is that we are not acting direct by giving proofs if we have or is it that we have no proofs and we are just point finger to Pakistan assuming it must have come from there....

Why do we rely on US of A

Why do we rely on US for everything? Why is that we want US to do everything for us? Is that our leaders don't have guts or they are so busy in doing politics that they can not do any work for country? Pranab Mujharjee said that US has given evidence to Pakistan and now it should act on it. Why? Does that mean we didn't have any evidence before? We can not produce anything to prove Pakistan's element's involvement? We had no courage to stand against attack? Or we were not sure about anything?

"India on Thursday said the US has provided "strong evidence" to Pakistan about involvement of Lashkar-e-Taiba in the Mumbai attacks and that Islamabad should now hand over the culprits for which no Extradition Treaty is required. " In the same news there is one more comment from him (Pranab Mukharjee) "On whether the US pressure on Pakistan was working, Mukherjee said "tangible" results about Pakistani cooperation on the Mumbai terror attack is "yet to be achieved". "

Just to add more to this immediately after this Pakistan denies any international pressure on Islamabad... May be US is not considered outside :-). Before this there was news published on Wall street journal about Lashkar top commanders Zaki-ur-Rahman Lakhvi and Zarar Shah confessing there role in Mumbai attacks but as always allegedly denied by Pakistan. If they really want peace in South Asia, I think this is high time for Pakistan to come forward and co-operate with Bharat rather than keep denying the facts. Saying that even we, Bharat should also talk on some matured level, have some concrete requirements and plans and should stick to it.

Benzir Bhutton wins UN Human Rights award

This is a old news now though, I read it recently here. First when I read, I was surprised. How can a person who is responsible for thousands or lacs of humans can be awarded with human rights award? I initially though its only India where people are given award posthumously wrongly, but no it is not the case with India. Even UN proved by announcing this award to Ms. Bhutto. She was the one who started massacre of Kashmiri Pandits by provoking local muslims, which has left over 60,000 dead in the area.

This is a paragraph from another news website "But at a press conference following the ceremony, Zardari had to defend his mother's human rights record during her two terms as Prime Minister from 1988-1990 and 1993-1996, during which time Amnesty International documented hundreds extra-judicial killings by government forces and the jailing of human right defenders, including journalists."

After all I am sure it is not only me who thought this was wrong or rather not justified.
